An aside on the latest CONFLICT OF INTEREST...
What the fuck does it mean anyway when the mainstream gaming media refers to AAA games as being "hardcore"? Does anyone care to explain to me what a "hardcore" game is supposed to be? Because it's not a game played by dedicated gamers, and it's not anything inaccessible to the broadest audience possible. "Hardcore" games like Halo, God of War, Fallout, and Mass Effect are in fact those that are furthest dumbed down to appeal to the very most casual of audiences. So what the hell does the term mean? That's a serious question, I'm asking? Anyone have a fucking clue?
