I don't know what it is that attracts me to the 'hardcore' mode in games. I suppose it is the idea that there are no second chances, and if I am not at the top of my game, I'll suffer for it. Perhaps it is my 'alt-itis' or my OCD nature to min / max and every time I have to reset, I try to think of new builds or ways to be a better player 'this time'.
What do you all think? Is there a market for a hardcore only game? I mean real hardcore, no second chances, no running back to your body. If you die, its over.
Of course that would seem unfair to people with latency, or if there was PvP involved... but if that was just part of the game, would people accept it? What about in tournaments? In a 1v1, 2v2, or 3v3, if a player actually died, and didn't get revived by their team mates, they would actually lose their character, and all their gear.
Would that be a fun game, or would people hate it?
What are your opinions and ideas about hardcore mode, and do you think there is a place for these types of games?
