Not sure if I should LOL or weep, because I kinda agree with the sentiment...
Kami darou ga akuma darou ga, ore no michi ni tateru mono NASHI!!

Give me internets. Now.

Given an older quote of mine from the original VG thread, I might just have to agree with that sentiment!

"If the game has levels that can be beaten in 15 minutes or less on average, even if it has 100+ levels, it's probably a casual game, because you can pick it up, play it for a bit, and put it away, as a little fun distraction between your important stuff, instead of having to set aside a more significant amount of time to play.

Interestingly, this means that many FPSes out there could qualify, by my definitions, as casual games.  Especially the multiplayer stuff.  And those are considered by most to be hardcore games."

Casual games might be characterized less by an ability to play in short bursts but by an inability to play for longer stretches. If you can play a game for hours at a time, be it Civilization, 2048, or Tic-Tac-Toe, you can be hardcore about it. But many "casual" games are structured so that you have to take extended breaks (for example, any Facebook game where time is measured in real-life hours instead of in-game seconds). Of course, such games often have a way for you to pay money for more endurance - which shows that these time limitations are created to make money rather than as a meaningful part of the game's design.

From now all, I'm going to refer to all FPS gamers as dirty CASUALS  :lol

"If you can play a game with one hand while chatting on speaker phone and masturbating with the other, it's a casual game."

You wouldn't be far off... it's been a long time since we've had a real multiplayer FPS and not some flavor of CoD or Battlefield clone.
