    I just had a epiphany.

    You know how most people think that Nintendo isn't producing hardcore adult games, anymore? I just realized that they still do. My mum is an adult and she plays games like Wii Fit and Wii Music. That means that my mum is a hardcore adult gamer and that Nintendo has been making hardcore adult games all along. It turns out they haven't left us!

    Wii Fit is so hardcore, even the kids don't want to play it.

    Do you know what Nintendo needs to stay relevant? Some goddamn adult games. I'm sick of Mario, Zelda, Pokemon or whatever other sick creation that they make for children these days. Adults are the ones that purchase your system so it makes sense to create games geared towards them. I am a adult gamer which means I want to play adult games. I'm not sure if they are just incompetent but by now, it should have been apparent that adult games are the best way to bring in more revenue. I hope Nintendo has realized that by now and starts releasing some more adult games this generation. Like Wii Fit. For my adult mom.

    Losing weight with the Wii fit; doesn't get much more hardcore than that.

    What does "hardcore" and "adult" mean anyway? Does it really have to have a grey and brown color filter, and copious amounts of gore (kids under 12 play these games all the time anyway)?

    What's wrong with playing a game with color and gameplay that differs from last year's model?

    Because gore makes it mature.

    Boy, you sure have an attitude for an adult... :glare:
    Also, weren't the "hardcore gamers" bitching about Nintendo for not making hardcore games hardcore enough? Then why did they buy a 3DS or Wii anyway?

    For me, adult games means "badass", not cutesy. Hardcore can be any game type really, that's just a term for people who game ALL THE TIME. I haven't been a hardcore gamer for many years, but I'm an adult gamer. That means I don't want to play flower-and-bunny games, I want to play badass games that are cool, not cute.

    I'm a pretty gentle guy IRL, but in my games, I want CRUSH! KILL! DESTROY! Make them pay! Make them suffer! Not talking to cute little animals and dancing with flowers.

    On the DS, cutesy games are unavoidable, but you won't find any cutesy-wootsy games on my PSP.

    Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with someone liking cutesy games, it's just that I don't care for them myself.

    Was wondering this myself actually...
    I'd give it another 10 mins. :P


    Edit: Okay, prowler_'s right, it's not really a troll. Still, I can't shake the feeling that it's headed to the EoF...

    It's not really a troll topic, it's a legit topic that can cause a little bit of discussion.

    Actually it's pretty easy to find games that aren't "cutesy", especially if you stay away from shovelware.

    Hardcore = Makes me look cool.
    Adult = I'm not having fun, I'm using this as an outlet for all my manly rage! At the age of 12.

    The people in the new zelda threads have some beefs with that.

    As a realistic response...

    I'd agree with this. There's lots of games that are aimed towards hardcore grinding and such, and lots of games that aren't, even within the same genre.

    Hmm, my signature is relevant to this discussion, but just in case I change it soon....

    “Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
    C.S. Lewis
