Forums - Gaming Discussion - Do mainstream gamers really care about anything besides Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Madden, and FIFA?

I am talking about the College kid who plays a few hours a weekend, or the 40 year old over the hill dad who gets one or two games a year.

 

These four franchises are the only ones part time gamers care about. If I said " Hey Call of Duty guy, what do you think of Dark Souls or Pikmin?"

 

They would probably knock me out and steal my wallet or ignore me like most girls do.

Exactly how many girls have knocked you out and stolen your wallet?

If they cared about hardcore games, why would they be mainstream gamers?

It's like asking if poor people are going to buy a Ferrari.

I am lucky if I get more than five games per year, yet I'm (one of) the reason PS3 owners are getting Deadly Premonition in the West. =P

So yes, yes they care.

No.

Oh Spurge and Badgenome lol.

If the two of you ever started a stand up comedy show, I would PAY to watch it.

So mainstream gamer is the new casual gamer? "These four franchises are the only ones part time gamers care about". Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Madden, & FIFA are mostly played by what would be described as casual gamers, with some exceptions of course.
But hey, I guess you can come up with a new term that means the same thing, then exclude all things Mario, sure.

I remember when these types of gamers were called the "casuals".
