There is nothing funnier than "hardcore" games *****ing about other people having fun with consoles.

<shrug> Whatever gets you off I guess. I don't consider myself a hardcore gamer. When I need to answer one of these questions I think of what my buddy would say, or how he deals with games. Dude actually schedules his vacation from work sometimes when there's a big release like Gears of War 2. I don't know how it can get more hardcore than that.

I find it hilarious that Kent is trying to argue the Wii is hardcore, but GTA isn't. I mean sh*t, they're only considered some of the best titles of all time.

It just makes him sound even more selfish and petty that he actually thinks the majority of people should consider Wii to be hardcore.

I like to live in reality.

I wasn't really referring to you Mat. I just have always found it odd that hardcore guys/fans, no matter what the subject is hate the casual fan whose spending makes the deep/hardcore stuff possible. Nintendo is not ruining gaming. They are making it accessible to people who otherwise would not play them. This may cause the userinterfaces of future consoles to be altered, but gifted game architects will be able to make them work. I for one got a little tired of new systems only being upgrades graphically, and all the games being essentially the same as those before them. GTA has hardcore elements, but it's pick up and play dynamic is what made it into a cultural phenomenom.

That's what I was trying to explain in my earlier post. It's not a certain genre that makes these great games. It's not the specific game that makes someone "hard core." Anyone who needs these things explained to them really shouldn't be arguing what's hardcore and what isn't.

Which you've said probably about 3X on this forum and they continue to ignore it. That's why I call them fanboys. They refuse to accept reality.

Magazines are running articles about how Wii hardly has anything to offer the hard core gamer, but Wii fanatics just argue about it like they know something the industry doesn't.

A, I didnt not say the Wii itself is THE hardcore system or a hardcore system. I said it has stuff for those people and if they cant find it they are just lazy.

Second, to me GTA is essentially a 3d collectathon platformer that has an assload of mini games, many of which probably could have been done better if Rockstar would pair down the different stuff you can do.

i think its funny now you are pimping them as some of the best titles of all time when you trashed Goldeneye as a classic game though b/c the tech has been passed by. Hell, GTA3 is crap too if you go by the standards you were holding for Goldeneye.

Uhm. No? There are tons of gamers who actually found San Andreas to be a better game than GTA4. People are still playing San Andreas daily. They just released a value pack where you could buy all three GTA3's in a bundle pack just last year.

And my argument against Goldeneye was that it was not "timeless", and that it was overrated.

It is NOT timeless, very few games are, and I can't be wrong about it being overrated because it's an opinion.

And those mini games you b*tch about are what makes these games successful, because they provide variety outside the normal "missions".
