What is the definition of a hardcore game to you? Do you believe there is actually such a thing? What games do you consider Hardcore, and why?

I think it's completely subjective, what a "hardcore game" is. It's all derived from the intensity a player contributes, and the enjoyment he receives from the game. Any game. So because of that, I think it's ridiculous to classify groups of gamers, or games for that matter, as hardcore.
For example, someone might think Chess is like, the least hardcore game in the world - then he meets Kasparov, who would probably disagree. Both would be right in their own minds. It's all subjective.

There're games I like and games I don't like. That's how I see games. None of this hardcore malarkey.

Like Vendetta said, its subjective. To paraphrase from Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart once said, I can't define it but I know it when I see it.

It's not the games that are hardcore, it's the people who play them. The definition of a "hardcore game" is a game typically aimed at the hardcore gamer.

@King Elemento - And that type of game would supposedly be?? That statement make me wonder how game companies would answer this then.

So by that logic, they should market Bonsai Barber as a hardcore game to cosmetology enthusiasts?

I agree with Vendetta. The words "casual games" tell me of games I can pick up and play a bit without really putting all my focus on it. In "hardcore games" I typically can't afford to be lax. I think this definition captures sufficiently well the chess example put above. As another example, Dancing Stage on easiest levels is in my opinion casual gaming, but on the harder levels it becomes hardcore gaming.

LTG, they totally should, right? LOL I mean, they even hook you by only allowing you to do 5 per day... How can you stop at less? It's like they guilt you into finishing the veggies waiting in your shop. You gotta be hardcore stylist to play this game.

i think a game becomes hardcore if the player doesn't get itsay for example Rhythm Heaven..those who follow the rhythm will think that the game is a piece of cakebut IGN said it was hell of a hard game!..you know what's the problem? Rhythm..Rhythm..Rhythm!
