Hardcore or Casual?

Hey everyone! I just had a few questions...

Are you a hardcore gamer? or a casual gamer?

After stating what you are, tell me how you feel about the iphone/ipotch as a gaming device.

Finally, according to you, state what game acts as a model for the perfect game for the platform.

I can't be a hardcore gamer. I spend all my free time making them!

I think it has potential, but theres gonna be a "learning curve" for developers when it comes to transcending traditional button based games to the touchscreen.
ID say Galcon. Its a perfect example for current indie games: A fantastic, refreshing gameplay, but nothing more. No story, etc.

Unless Counterstrike-Multiplayer comes out.

A late game is only late until it ships. A bad game is bad until the end of time.

I think iPhone is good for gaming, competition always is, but it needs some kind of buttons and D-pad add-on thingy before it can get up there with the DS and PSP.

Best game example.....Rolando, if it was a tad longer. It's as good as any console game easily, but not as long as they usually are.

i know it's probably cliche but Rolando uses touch and accelerometer controls, greaat graphics, and a funky soundtrack. Oh yeah, it's also an amazing game.
I'd say sometimes hardcore like when I'm on xbox live. But casual with almost every other game

When shooting a mime, don't use a silencer or his friends will hear you.

I'm a casual gamer when it comes to arcade type game. I'm not really like to archieve high score or beating my high score type of person. Just completing the levels will make me happy, and won't be playing it for the time being.

Well, I can be a hardcore gamer when it comes to RPG games where there is no time limit or scores. I like seeing and completing every single quest for RPG and that really makes me satisfy~
