I guess I would have to consider myself a hardcore gamer. This is not a claim of greatness, as I am not a bad-ass pwning machine at any game in particular; I just play almost anything. That is, the majority of games, which aren't tailored toward children, on consoles... and every once and a while I get the urge to plug in my Wii. I love video games more than anyone I know personally. Some come close, but none listen to the Giant Bombcast, Joystiq Podcast, CAGCast, TRS, and frequent those and other gaming blogs regularly like I do.
