Now day on the Wii many people have been screaming out for hardcore titles. Then Sega came in recently with House of the Dead Overkill and it got me thinking. Sega marketed this game as the hardcore you've been waiting for. With so much vilonce and gore it defiantly is an adult title but....... Its a light gun game. Many people believe hardcore games to be ones of lots of vilonce and swearing yet is that truly what hardcore means.
I always thought a hardcore game was one that had solid game mechanics, solid multi player and large amounts of collectable items or customisable stats. Another content for people to really get stuck in game and not some light gun game.
Don't get me wrong i like House of the dead overkill but I don't see it as a hardcore game.
So that's my oppinon what's yours? I curios to know what other people think on the matter.
