About Us

What is Casuals?
Casuals is to gaming as oxygen is to survival. You want it. You crave it. And unless you don’t have it, you’ll never know just how much you need it. But what does it mean to say we’re “casual gamers”? Some people think of only mobile and Facebook games whenever the word “casual” is brought up. That’s not us. We play games. We love games. We know games. But in our opinion, the moniker “hardcore” doesn’t fit us either. We don’t attend gaming tournaments, we don’t strive for platinum trophies or 1000 achievement score, and for the most part don’t engage in daily or even weekly competitive online play. We just want to have fun playing the games we love, in whatever shape or form those are presented to us. So we’re striving to re-brand the term “casual” so that more people like us can self-identify without the negativity that typically comes with the term.
