Hardcore Games

What are hardcore games?

Hardcore games are those that require players to invest a lot of time to learn and as a result, have the highest engagement among game genres. Hardcore gamers are driven by the desire to test their skills, win against other players, obtain in-game achievements, or are completionists who want to enjoy a game’s content in its entirety. 

Hardcore games are those that feature long sessions thanks to in-depth storytelling or battles that can’t be easily paused and picked up later. Some hardcore game genres include massively multiplayer online role-play games (MMORPG), first-person shooters, and multiplayer online battle arenas (MOBA). As a result, many hardcore games are used in esports competitions. 

Hardcore games and those who play them will often seek out content outside of the game when they’re not playing. For example, a hardcore gamer is likely watching others play on game streaming services like Twitch when away from their gaming device of choice. They may also participate in online forums to discuss strategy, tips, tricks, and more.
