There's just not enough actual battles and stuff happening to keep me entertained. I just want to go play a dungeon crawler where I'm regularly killing stuff, looting and leveling up.
If you haven't yet, give Bard's Tale IV a shot. It's pretty much just that - a dungeon crawler with nothing but battles and puzzles. Even when you're not in a dungeon, it plays like a dungeon crawl.
But of course the funny thing is, someone could easily argue that the big problem with that game is that it doesn't really provide any opportunities to role play. No choices to make, super-limited non-combat skills. Even though I'm enjoying the hell out of it, I'd like it even more if there was a bit more to the dialogues and my interactions with the NPCs.
Lately, I've just been playing WoW Classic and Diablo 2: Resurrected, have I become the casual gamer I always hated?
You don't have to be a "casual" gamer to dislike certain games of genres you usually like. I'm pretty sure everyone has their own examples of "Normally I like FPS's / adventure games but this particular one just didn't click with me even though it seems to be popular in general"
And funny enough, for me it would be "normally I like RPGs, but I could never get into any of the original Baldur's Gate/Icewind/Torment games", even though they are supposed to be the pinnacle of the genre.
Anyway, I don't so what's so hateful about "casual" gamers. It's entertainment, it's a hobby, everyone should engage with it the way that's most fun for them. I don't even know if I'm a casual gamer, or a hardcore gamer, or a whatever. I play old classics that modern "casual gamers" would probably never touch, but I also play new stuff, AAA and small casual indie titles, and I usually stick to "normal" difficulty settings and don't "master any games, just have fun with them... what am I? When I lose my last life, will I go to hardcore heaven or casual hell?!
