Devin Nash is also a Hardcore player of POE(Path of Exile).

This thorn I’m about to pull is why?

In his words he plays Hardcore because when he loses a character he needs to feel it. The absolute loss of a character because of his own actions. Or to the indifference of the games bosses who have broken mechanics, which he should have avoided.

Every man has his preference and it’s perfectly acceptable that his be irregular.

He refers to the normal mode though as a “Baby Game” in rhetoric jest of course. But it is still a deflection of digging at why he truly plays hardcore, with such an off the cuff dismissal of the default and most popular game mode. What bothers me about this is that this is not an argument to sway others to his form of perceived superior play but rather to himself securely coddled in his preference.

Why?

Why is that important that he raises rhetoric argument?

Because rhetoric is not application of persuasion, not the method by which truth is discovered.

Rhetoric is primary used as a weapon, either when there is a lack of knowledge on a subject or where the truth is counter to the conclusion you wish an audience to draw.

So here’s why IMHO

Devin Nash plays Hardcore?

He is practicing attachment, control, investment and failure.

Games fill whatever desire your heart longs for a time but without ever fulfilling that desire forever.

Are you feeling lonely?

Join a cooperative experience

Are you feeling like murdering your boss?

Hop on an Xbox shooter, talk smack and exercise dominance over 12 yr old boys until dawn instead

Are you feeling unchallenged?

We have strategy games for that.

Are you feeling the need for a girl but don’t want to take a shower?

Let me introduce you to the world of dating sims.

Hardcore modes fill a very special need

For some it’s the sheer challenge and proof of mastery

For others it’s the most uncontested leader-board

For Devin Nash

it’s grief and frustration

He doesn’t play Hardcore for fun

No, indeed too many hours have been throw into POE

to call it fun or catharsis

Why would anyone inflict themselves with such pain and loss though?

Understand that for every character death he experiences,

That character is permanently dead and can no longer be played.

Which means all the hours, days, weeks of investment that went into

crafting that character are GONE FOREVER.

Even if that Character does not die they will be forever in memoriam after the seasons end, never to be played again as the call of a new season begs the creation of a new avatar.

Each ending condition is the same the investment squandered, as games like life have an end when all will be forgotten.

POE Hardcore fills Devin Nash’s need for attachment by providing a, relatively, consequence free zone for him to experience attachments ultimate conclusion death and grief

This the motive that he keeps from himself

Because Detachment and the practice thereof dominates his conscience and everyday life. Romanticly, Profressionally, and Religously

Why then must I attack his last vestige of Attachment by revealing it’s nature?

It is the truth as I see it.

It’s not a bad thing, It’s just a hidden thing

and all things must be brought under the light.
