For the most part yes.

What kind of true RPG fan would ignore XenoBlade Chronicles? What kind of true FPS fan would ignore Metroid Prime? What kind of Action/Adventure fan would ignore Zelda? Nintendo has some of the best games out there, and only the really hardcore gamers own a Wii (maybe just as a secondary console) to play the few, but excellent Nintendo exclusives.

However the people who only have a Nintendo platform, I don't consider them core gamers. You can't ignore all the multiplatform and exclusive games available on the PS3/360. You need at least 1 HD system.

I'd say that any one who plays video games routinely with some level of dedication can be considered a core gamer.
Even though my mother only plays social games these days, the amount of effort and time she puts into them does not scream "casual" to me.

Does the PC count?

(Also WiiU is HD but I know what you mean.)

No. The only core gamers are PC gamers.

Nope... Never, not since the SNES days



Without order nothing can exist - without chaos nothing can evolve.

Absolutely not. Because my sister is definitely not a core gamer, and unfortunately casuals like her are nintendo target audience. Hardcore gamers can play nintendo but nintendo only gamers cant be hardcore. If you hate you shouldnt have asked =)



 

Yes of course. The more interesting question is the preferred genres among those and the number of core gamers that choose Nintendo.



Before the PS3 everyone was nice to me :(

After taking a look at the very low Wii U sales numbers of Batman,AC ,ME3 or COD=NO.
Four AAA games combined cannot sell half as many units on Wii U as a single shovelware Nintendoland or an recycled old New Mario.
Considering that those games are still selling bad though there is almost no software support for the Wii U=NONO

As many Nintendo games afford skill to be finished(easy to learn,hard to master)there should be lot of coregamers(25-30%),but it seems only 5-10% are interessted in buying games that are not produced or exclusived by Nintendo.
The rest only seem to care about Non-Nintendogames when they are delayed or EA games that are not released on Wii U.
Than even such an ingnored IP like rayman that sold on vita more than on 3ds and on jump'n'run console Wii less than on ps360,becomes a martyr and a must have game.
Corefanboys 20%,core gamers 5%.

Nintendo Game Lego City will prove:i'm right.
Low preorders,average rating until now,pretty much unknown and not really interessting-but even this game will sell 2x more units than AC,BM,COD and ME3 combined(until the end of the year)

Those games have too many things againts them on Wii U. Batman, late port. People really don't care about the special armor suit. ME3, worthless the moment we heard of the trilogy. COD, who really wants to play COD with a Nintendo system. When their online always has to be crazy, instead of normal. AC, I have no opinion. Since I never played the games.



I've seen this topic come up repeatedly over the years and this is by far the best OP ever.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
