Core Gamer

A core gamer is a player with a wide range of gaming interests, but without the willingness (or opportunity) to invest a large amount of time that a hardcore gamer would.

The mid-core gamer enjoys complex games but won't blindly buy every new release.

S/he doesn't have time for long games, and is classed as a target consumer that needs features not found in games for the other types of gamer. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata stated that they designed the Wii U to cater to a core gamer who is between the casual and hard-core categories.
