    Just because there are a lot of casual games on the system doesn't mean it can't be "hard core". There is a hell of a lot of trash available for the PC, yet I'd still consider that is a "hard core" gaming platform.

    I don't really agree with the clan/communication definition either. I'm sure it's probably a lot of fun to shout "boom head shot" to your clan mates when you blow someone's head off from the oppositions team. I don't see how that's any more "hard core" then solving an incredibly difficult puzzle in Zack and Wiki though.

    '09 looks to be shaping up for a great year for Wii owners. With all the solid third party efforts already released this year and many more to come. Not to mention the Wii Motion Plus sports gaming that can only be described as incredible according to IGN.

    Hardcore is a game theme (like for example horror) with a lot of fans nowadays, and people tend to separate games between hardcore/serious gaming and non-hardcore/light gaming games.

    I separate games in 2 groups (only quality games):

    -Great/big games
    -Casual/party/fun games

    And if a game fits in there, i'll make the decision of acquiring it based on the category (sports, rpg, etc) i'm currently favoring.

    The wii is in fact getting more hardcore titles wich is good, because it adds variety, but for me the most important thing is the quality of the game, and not if its light or serious.

    wii is definitely becoming more hardcore especially with the recent release of madworld but also the upcoming release of PunchOut. If wii keeps pumpin out games like these then the wii can compete with the 360 and ps3 again.

    I love Tenchu: Shadow Assassins, it's a really great game. It is very 'hardcore' too, not because it's M rated but because it takes a lot of perseverance to beat the game with perfect scores (which is the main objective of the game). For some people that is a negative, but for me it sums up what a true 'hardcore' game is all about.

    It certainly kept me busy until the king of hardcore Wii games arrived, that being the awesomeness that is Madworld.

    There's this shifting definition with "hardcore" that seems to be geared around excluding games that look childish more than accurately representing a group of games. Will the Wii ever be "hardcore?" No, because the definition will shift to exclude the Wii as long as it continue to put any focus on games that can be played around the entire family. Because the dirty little secret is all the "hardcore" label really means is that someone is insecure about their own maturity and doesn't want to be associated with anything that makes them look less mature. It has very little to do with actual gameplay.

    Yes, Yes, Yes. Finnaly the Wii comes hardcore!!
    This year and the rest of life time we see more and more hardcore titles better and better!!
    Again we need to support these games to the numbers increase!!
    You know the xbox360's hardcore base is 6 millions instead they sold 25 millions consoles, exactly the number of Halo3 sales, no more. Now we are 50 millions of Wii owners and only the hardcore base is 1.5 million, we need to increase this to beat the xbox360's base in the future, I hope so!!
    And finnaly we going to beat the famous xbox360's 8:1 tie ratio, now the Wii tie ratio is 5:1, I hope we do it!!
    All 50 millions Wii owners aganist the 6 millions xbox360 hardcore users!!

    Similarties between the two systems are:

    Sales: Most system sold in their generation.
    Exclusives: Most software exclusives in their generation.
    Shovelware: Most shovelware software in their generation.

    When it comes to the best games, it's just a matter of preference/opinion.
    opinion? I think everyone would agree. When you went to the game store when ps2 was current gen, you would see good games as soon as you glance at the shelves.

    Do this now for the wii, and you see tons of crap. I think there will be some great games for the wii in its lifetime that change videogames forever, but its first few years will be/are inexcusable, and i doubt that they'll be able to pardon their failure to the traditional videogaming market.

    The casual gaming market won't be so bad if they can manage to regulate all of the crap casual games and filter them so the fun casual games get the attention they deserve.
