I don't see why not. Some of my best friends who are Nintendo enthusiasts are hardcore gamers. It also depends on how you look at 'Nintendo gamer". I know people who use the Wii exclusively but don't buy games like Mario or Zelda, so to me It would depend on the kind of Nintendo games that person plays since Nintendo's umbrella is rather wide. But I suppose technically those guys wouldn't be seen as 'Nintendo gamers'.

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.

So you consider us Ultra Mega Core Gamers? I can live with that.

I put 'no' but I mean that as an average. I think currently as an average most people who own Nintendo consoles are rather casual. That is by no means a bad thing as it means Nintendo has created very accessible consoles. Of course there are still millions of Nindendo gamers who are core gamers.

I'm a PC gamer and it's the same situation. There are millions of core PC gamers, but we are simply outnumbered by people who play flash/facebook games ect because they are so accessible on any PC.



I do consider Nintendo gamers Core if they play Zelda etc....



Why should we would like to be called core gamers?



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

That's too vague a question no? I mean over 90 million wiis out there....there's no real way of checking how many of the owners are casuals.

The fact that's it's so punchy makes it really easy and fun to read.

How could a Nintendo gamer be anything but a core gamer? I mean Nintendo games aren't time wasters like Angry Birds. I guess Wii Sports is casual, but I wouldn't consider a soccer mom that plays Wii Sports and Wii Fit a Nintendo gamer. Zelda, Mario, Metroid, Star Fox, Pilot Wings, F-Zero, etc. are all core games and those are the games that Nintendo fans like me buy Nintendo systems for.



Hell, no. Don't you dare try to call me a core gamer ever again.
