I would never call myself a hardcore gamer. I don't care about getting platinums or 1000g scores. I don't replay games on the hardest settings. I game for entertainment, fun, not the challenge or the achievements. But I still have all the consoles and do a little PC gaming because I enjoy playing all sorts of different games. But Nintendo's philosophy of doing games you enjoy playing and going back to is the right one for me, I'd take that over Microsoft's "Throw $200m at it and make generic action shooter 3."
