RE: Mid-Core Gaming

I consider myself a mid-core player nowadays due to other commitments taking up my time, and I still think that the rift between hardcore and casual players is too wide.

That's not to say games aren't starting to fix it. 

Pokemon is a good example of a good mid-core game, I casually EV/nature train, but don't go for IVs, nor am I so casual that I just take all of my Pokemon to level 100 with disregarding its natural stats and EV gains.

MMOs like the Guild Wars series I consider pro-mid-core as well due to its casual nature of being able to jump in and out of the game, get something done, and not have to commit via monthly fees
