    Don't you sometimes wish you could be a casual player again?

      I do. Everyday.

      It was such a nice gaming experience, I never EVER raged.
      If I got OMA'd I said to myself "Ouh, my bad, I was at the false place at the false time!"
      Now today, I rage about everything. Why? Because I became a hardcore gamer. And as hardcore gamer, you see all those bad things that a game has, you see the flaws and the exploits.

      Do you sometimes wish you could be a casual player again?

            I don't rememer being a casual player lol (commadore 64 to atari to NES to Gameboy to SNES to N64 to PS to Dreamcast to Xbox to 360 to PS3 to Wii to PSP) but I understand your point.  Harder to please once you reach this point, ruins it in a way.

            Just like someone who only watches football once in awhile, they generally miss things that a big time fan will freak out about.

              Never I was always hardcore ever since the NES... Video games is a hobby for me and enjoy playing games at the most hardest extent, I also like buying for my collection (which is VERY huge). When your hardcore you can see what the developers did with the game and how they made it "easier" for newer players or "harder" for more hardcore players, you see alot of difference in everything. Even if your "Not trying" other players may seem that your a so called "Try hard", but instead your just good and know the game. Sure you may get called a geek, nerd and a no life (People need to think when they say that). But your just good at what you do, just like sports. Sure you may Rage every now and then but its normal lol.

                  Yeah, I do wish that I didn't play as much.  My wife doesn't care that I play, but it gets on her nerves sometimes. I actually play less on the weekend, but everyday I get home from work I want to play for hours.  My wife pretty much gets to watch whatever she wants on TV so it kinda works out.  I can't stand watching tv anymore.  It's so boring.

                          Sometimes, because it would give me an excuse to use the AK74u and Famas. But only sometimes.

                            I'm glad I'm still a casual. Got this game a little over a month ago and it's my first COD experience. Played Halo for years and it just wasn't fun anymore. Having a blast with this game. Games seem to be the most fun to me when still learning all the ins and outs.
