I remember awhile back when I first started to play HC, I couldn't imagine going back to SC again. Every single thing I did on a HC character meant a lot more to me than something I'd do on a SC character. Since in SC you can Leeroy Jenkins it to no end and still make it to end game at some point. HC is all about the journey to the end game as well, sort of like why driving a manual/stick shift car is more fun than driving an automatic car. One of the things that kept me to the HC life was having to plan well ahead of time when playing it. Which suits my personality, since I do that in RL too. Also being extra cautious, which is definitely me in RL too. For example, even if I'm in the passenger seat of a car, before I open the door - I always look back and check the side mirror to see if anyone is coming, before I actually open the door. I also do this when I'm walking too! But I look back to see if anyone is jogging/cycling by, before I switch sides on the pavement. Does anyone else feel the same way? Do you mainly just stick to HC now? But to summarise the thread, I'll be heading back to HC again, after getting enough revision of how the game is now during SC.
