Hardcore Gamer: What is it?

Okay so I at first was not going to approach this topic but I figure after E3 2014 it is time to share my thoughts on what a Hardcore Gamer is. I know some will not agree so leave your thoughts in the comments. I know some of you will agree with me, if so attack the naysayers in the comments. :-)

1. Hardcore Gamer buys more video games and video game related items more than the average gamer.

2. Hardcore Gamer plays more hours than the average gamer.

3. Hardcore Gamer appreciates the gaming industry as a whole. 

4. Hardcore Gamer recognizes the greatness in all gaming systems. (including Nintendo)

5. Hardcore Gamer recognizes that graphics do not make a game.

Okay so that is my list. Frankly I am tired of gamers calling themselves Hardcore Gamers when they limit themselves to just one system or one type of game or to games with a certain amount of frames per second you are not a Hardcore Gamer. I am tired of people putting down another system because they consider it for Casual Gamers. Let's be honest, if you cannot appreciate the wonders of the PC, PS, Xbox, and Nintendo than you are not a Hardcore Gamer and you need to remove yourself from that title. Frankly the fanboys are destroying the Gaming scene and making it useless to have a gaming discussion because they quickly lose their minds. 

These are my thoughts. Share yours in the comments.
