    I find it funny that the representation of "hardcore" is almost half shitty games from the past 5 years and almost half casual games from the last 5 years.

    Overall though this is stupid and should be deleted.

    I know nearly all of these. Maybe I'm just extremely hardcore.

    The only real challenge is the bobbleheads.

    What are you looking at!? I only scanned it quickly but at least half of those characters are classics!

    At first I was pissed off Cloud wasnt there....then I found him :D

    EDIT: FUCKING JAMES POND!

    I do agree with Longo, actually.

    SOme of those guys there have been introduced in the past three months and honestly have no place on the list, like DANTE or WAR from Dantes Inferno and Darksiders.

    Others are just kind of....well, not game characters, like Batman and Indiana Jones, although I guess all of geekdom would be amiss if they were excluded.

    I feel more insulted that a bunch of them aren't even part of videogames at all! Seriously, optimus prime? Wanted? Hulk? What, we count licensed games now?

    Now this one on the other hand.

    Yeah, I pretty much recognized everyone that doesn't completely suck.

    So tired of the term "hardcore" as it relates to videogames.

    So they should stick to using it with porn? I mean, if you play videogames, chances are you watch porn and viceversa. It was only a matter of time until "hardcore" made it's way over to videogames.

    Not talking about porn. Its just that somehow the opposite of casual is hardcore (still not talking about porn). There's no middle ground or variance with some people. It's not an exclusive club, it's a fucking hobby.

    I can't say I've heard "hardcore" used as a major term in anything besides porn (and most recently video games)

    I can't believe i laughed at your little pun there, matt.

    and nah dude, i've had a bet going for the last month or so. to avoid derailing the topic, i'll leave it alone here but i can explain it somewhere else.''

    p.s. i found 2 bobbleheads, not counting the one right next to the words on the top. i'm a true talent.

    I much rather prefer the term "indie" because it better spotlights that you place too much value on a pastime.
