Casual, Mid Core, or Hard Core

Wrong section.

And I don't think I would determine whether a game is "hardcore" or not by the length of the play session. For example, Bejeweled is obviously a casual game, but some people will play it for hours on end.

Yeah, good point. I consider BB casual too because it's a puzzle game, but I used to spend hours on it in one sitting.

Angry Birds & Angry Birds Holiday (actually Seasons) are listed as Hardcore? LOL I would say Casual unless you get obsessed with completing all the levels...and you will, you will!

ugh angry birds... but yeah, its definitely casual. And I'd watch out for freemium games, don't get sucked into spending a lot of real world cash on them. But they're good initally to try out a genre of game, for instance you can play blood and glory to see if you're gonna like Infinity Blade.
