But then, out of a sudden, Hardcore was put on hold due to a shift towards the new generation of gaming consoles, most notably the powerful Sony PlayStation with its incredible 3D graphics. Not the most clear way to access these modes, but now you know how, you can customise your Quick Play settings to play the Hardcore modes you enjoy most. To reveal these, press the Square button or X on Xbox , to change the 'Selected Category', as prompted above where it says 'Team Deathmatch'.
Today, the early 80s hardcore ethic still exists in places in Europe and America, as well as in the UK, but the larger picture has been watered down by MTV and the music press, tagging many bands that emerge from the metal or punk scene as hardcore. In the main Multiplayer Lobby, you'll see a list of modes, starting with Quick Play at the top. Nobody cared what you looked like.
