    What's the definition of 'hardcore' game?

    Well, I'm one of the people started to play game through Wii which means that I know almost nothing of game.
    After reading a thread about E3 conference on the first page of Wiichat.com, I just became really curious: what does hardcore game mean?
    Because I thought hardcore game meant hella serious and hard games like Resident Evil or Trauma Center...(Oh btw what's difference between Resident Evil and Biohazard? Cuz I'm more familiar with Biohazard..)
    So I never thought Mario series will be included in hardcore games. They're not serious enough for me..lol
    So...
    What's the definition of 'hardcore game'?

    Good topic. Depends extremely on how you look at it, however. As you said, one definition of it would be gore/blood/guns.

    Another could mean a serious competitor in gaming. Another could be serious gameplay, in which Mario would be a good example. No, no gore/blood/guns, but it's still hardcore because 1) it's a huge title that people should take seriously and 2) it was one of the games that started...gaming.

    You're probably going to get a bunch of different answers, like I said, it's a difference in opinion.

    I believe they call it hardcore gaming because the user and many other users take it very seriously. You will never see someone playing mario galaxy screaming at their partner for not collecting all the coins as you shoot from planet to planet, but if you did and the person being screamed at screams back saying what he did wrong, then you both would be hardcore gamers.

    Usually games like Halo and such are considered hardcore because they go online where many people want to compete to be the best. They will log in and go on their team chat channel and possibly get pissed at a team/clanmate for screwing up. You normally dont see this in Nintendo games but expect it to change once games like GH3 online.

    Also you have games like Mario Kart. I was kinda wondering if this game would be considered hardcore because now that it is going online people are really going to take it seriously, but it doesn't change the fact that its more of a party game... or does it?

    If I had to guess a thesaurus would list "intense" as a synonym for this application of the word.

    That said many of the games on the Wii are far from intense. Super Smash Brothers may be the closest thing (albeit somewhat childish)

    LoZ, Call of Duty, Red Steel, Resident Evil, Metroid Prime, etc. not "intense" enough to make it in your list? I hate people that generalize the Wii without even thinking about what they're saying....don't be one of those people.

    I gave it thought.
    Red Steel is really terrible. If intense means pissed off at controls then maybe
    Metroid Prime is a gamecube game
    Call of Duty does not take your complete attention away from everything around you like RE:4 might

    Oh and RE:4 is a 2 year old port from Gamecube/PS2 so it hardly counts
    Try again noobsauce.

    edit: Thanks Ronald. Rep'd

    Blood, multiple guns, crazy firing and sword slashing...if SSBB is intense, then so is this (and Resident Evil and CoD)

    If i'm correct, multiple titles have been released for over a decade, no?

    Amazing. Another person who makes a totally invalid point(s), ignores the obvious, then insults the person that they're quoting. People like you, unfortunately, is what Wiichat is getting more of. Ever heard anyone say "Wiichat's going downhill?" Oh wait, you joined in July. Psh, noobsauce...
