A Poll: What Kind of Gamer Are You?

I always find the gaming labels interesting. As gaming becomes more popular and mainstream, people try so hard to come up with new labels that fit everyone in. Hardcore, Casual, Extreme., etc. Well, IDG Entertainment has come up with some new categories. I find these interesting, yet still not all-encompassing. And their description of "casual" is kinda strange. I considered using check boxes for multiple answers, or having an "Other" category, but that seemed like too easy of an out. This way you can only pick one.

What kind of gamer are you?

Core Gamer: They choose gaming as their main form of entertainment and want to maximize their time gaming. They prefer gaming over going to the movies or out to dinner.

2(22.2%)
Active Gamer: They prefer games where movements are reflected in the game and allow gamers to get out of their chairs. They use gaming as a physical release.
0(0.0%)
Casual Gamer: They use gaming as an emotional release and as a way to play different roles. Casual gamers view gaming as a secondary form of entertainment and don't feel the necessity to be the first to try a new game.
