So besides for the older generations slam, I kind of agree with this description for myself.

I would say I probably fall more into the Hardcore level, but on the flip side I am more flighty then most hardcore gamers. I buy a lot of games and just sample them, never taking most of them to 100% completion... Consoles I own and play occasionally but they are not the primary focus of my entertainment.

Plenty of gamers are often stuck between the definitions of "casual" and "hardcore." They care too much to be the former, and yet they don't care enough to be the latter. If you're one of them, and yearning for your own defining category, then worry no more. You might just be a mid-core gamer. What does your new-found identity mean? According to 8-Bit Rocket, it means you're the type of gamer who doesn't want to buy a new computer every time a new game comes out. You might love MMOs, but you don't have the time (or patience) for eight-hour quests. You might own the latest consoles, but you might not finish every single game you buy. 8-Bit Rocket also suggests that mid-core gamers are generally of the older generations, but we firmly believe that young people can be mid-core as well.
