I think whomever decided that 'casual gaming' would refer to 'non-hardcore' games, thought that they meant:
|without definite or serious intention; careless or offhand; passing: a casual remark.|
I would disagree however. What makes a game 'serious' vs 'careless'? What makes a person playing Halo different from someone playing Bejewled? Have they not seen the voracity with which people play on pogo.com? On xbobx live? I would say that dedication and level of dedication is anything but 'casual'.
