dmaul seems like the ultimate casual gamer.
I wouldn't got that far. I quit buying CoD games after MW3, and am sick of yearly sequel franchises and stale ideas in general. I hate motion controls and games like Wii Fit/Kinect adventures etc. So I don't think I'm the ultimate/typical casual gamer who's perfectly fine with where the industry is at and where it is going.
I'm just more causal in that I like the experience more than the gameplay (assuming the gameplay isn't terrible--it does need to be fun of course.), don't like challenging games etc. I just want to veg out, get lost in virtual experience, and absorb a story in a way that's different from movies, tv shows or books. So gameplay does matter, I just don't get a lot of enjoyment out of games that are only gameplay, with little atmosphere, story etc. I.e. I can't play puzzle games for more than a few minutes as they don't immerse me and can't hold my interest. Fighting games don't interest me unless they have a strong story mode like Injustice. And so on.
My ideal games are things like Uncharted (and presumably last of us), Gears of War, Mass Effect, Skyrim etc. Games that have good stories, immersive worlds, and fun gameplay where I can get lost for hours at a time.
