Its fanatism pure and simple.

Hardcore gamer?

Anyway, if I'm gonna be playing a medieval FPS I want location based damage, deformable scenerey and bloody climbable walls (and the walls round the city aint curving upwards, so that's just bullshit about the game engine not being suitable.

Does anybody know if the unarmoured skill is still in? And as for fanaticism, nothing beats my PC, and if it does I'll just upgrade (64 bit processor and no software for it - woohoo...)

I wonder how they're going to sell Fallout 3 to casual gamers. They're using the traditional LOTR atmosphere with Oblivion because casual gamers know that. I bet Fallout 3 has bullet time.

I'm bumping this, because 3 YEARS AGO I called out F3's cheap use of "bullet time" (the slow motion VATS shit (it's totally like bullet time)) to appeal to casualtards.

I so hate the term 'casual gamers'. As if calling someone a casual gamer is derogatory, and you're some 'hardcore' gamer.

Anyway, I was disappointed with Oblivion, took away what I loved in the TES series. No matter, I still play Morrowind and sometimes Daggerfall.

You should hate it. The Casual Gamer term has been the biggest excuse for companies to dumb things down for years now.

It's a stupid word thats'all. It's used in a derogatory fashion and there's nothing insulting about it.

No - it just means that casual gamer is a retard and you're a normal person.

True. Games nowadays are being dumbed down so as to appeal to the "casual gamers" in order to maximize profits, and we all know that when they dumb down games/genres they end up being retarded. Therefore, retarded game = retarded person. It's all science.

Over there.
I suggest someone post a question on the TES forum asking who is a hardcore gamer. Most over there would probably identify themselves as such. The terms are purely subjective. Retardation cannot be constrained by a mere label.

I fucking love Gizmo. His skills are awesome.

[For those people who don't know who Giz is, he likes taking the piss off Fallout 3, by creating these videos. Like most of you he was disappointed with FO3].
