Hardcore Video Games? 2012-08-01 00:23:49 Reply

Hello everyone,
As a casual gamer, I have played vast quantities of games that I had little to no trouble with, e.g. Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood and Mario is Missing. Thus, I wish to ascend to the next level (pun somewhat intended) and play some video games that are more hardcore, such as Contra and the like. I own a DS Lite, a 3DS, a Wii, and a PC which can only emulate a few oldschool video games here and there, so no modern consoles like Xbox or PS3. Can anybody give me some suggestions? Thank you!

Well, I think it's pretty hard without the code. Oh yeah, I should have mentioned that I want my hardcore gaming experience without cheats.

I know of a very hardcore game, but i forget the name of it.

It's basically a remake of super mario, but its so difficult that i literally watched a live stream of someone play one boss for 3 hours straight, and never beat it.

nope that game is a cakewalk. This game use to have a viral video of someone playing it, and as he played it all you heard was "FUCK THIS, THIS IS DUMB' FUCK THIS" It was pretty hilarious.

I tried Phantom Hourglass. The Temple of the Ocean King detracted from the otherwise wonderful gaming experience, so I stopped playing it. I've heard good things about Twilight Princess, though. Which console is it for?

Darkfall Online : I didn't read any specifications that the game had to be on any particular hardware.

Darkfall Online Description : New School Ultima Online basically. Full World PvP, Full Loot, Skill based, FPS/TPS, Have to aim spells/arrows/melee, Mounted combat, naval combat, Build a city or hamlet(small not well defended city), Battle dragons, Huge Seiges( 100v100 ), Siege weapons( cannons ) used to take over Cities, etc..

Only downside to this game is the other people that play it. You got the lowest of the low people, Non-stop Sh*t talking. Like everyone is 12 years old. However most over 18 I would bet.

Was a fun game for the first year. Then it kind of went down hill.. very stressful.

Casual means you casually play video games.
Hardcore means you play video games more hardcore.

They don't define genres of video games.

Define "hardcore".

Do you mean you want to become the egocentric, obnoxious gamer who has "X" amount of K/D Ratio and can smell "scrubs and laggers" from a mile away?

Or do you mean somebody who posts high scores and achievements on Youtube because they're ridiculously good at hard games?

If the later, I recommend Bayonetta, Devil May Cry 4, and maybe God of War. If you play Bayonetta, I hope you have a foot fetish because you're going to be used a heel-based attack for a lot of speed runs.

If the former, then Battlefield 3's all the rage now I here and Battlefield 4 and Dust are coming out soon.


I can edit my signature at will, but I can't edit my post. The hell, Newgrounds?

If only Super Meat Boy was on any Nintendo console, I wanna say Majora's Mask as it is one of the more complex Zelda games, but still didn't have to much of a hard time... Animal Crossing! :D

"Casual games" is a specific genre of games that are designed for casual gamers.

Contra is really fucking difficult even with the famous code- it gets me about half way through the game.

Kaizo Mario? I found a video of that game recently, and it made me cringe.

As a matter of fact, I myself recently found an evil, hardcore version of Tetris called Bastet. Short for Bastard Tetris, Bastet is designed to give you the block you need least at the moment. Can anybody here beat my recoed of 12 lines?
