Just wondering if you guys play with or without hardcore mode on. For the most part I turn it off but use it for certain playthroughs.

I currently don't have a NV playthrough (still doodling around in FO3), but I'm pretty keen on using it throughout the entirety of my game. I like the challenge it offers.

I like the survival aspect, I'd like to go five minutes without a companion dying though..

I like playing with the hardcore mode, i think it's something essential to the game, without it the 50% of the NV items are useless and it's less fun in my opinion

I agree... hardcore mode is just so much more fun in my opinion.. it allows you to become much more immersed within the game. I love it, and i am always on the lookout for mods that make hardcore even harder without being impossible. And as vespanola stated, much of the items in FNV are pretty useless without hardcore mode enabled

Hardcore mode isn't that hardcore anyway. You get plenty of water and food throughout the game. As long as you don't carry every piece of gun and armor you have, weight shouldn't be an issue either. Usually I just stick to one or two guns and that's it. I do use a mod to make my companions essential though so they won't kill themselves.

Search JIP Companion Command. It's very useful mod for companions. You can even have unlimited companions with it.

I always play with hardcore mod on. It adds that "I need to survive" aspect in to the game, and makes it more immersive; especially when combined with animated chems, Enhanced camera, and Realistic Weapon Damage.

I play with hardcore mode on. For the reason of more realism for the medical and food/hydration. Also to make the game more challenging for a high level character. As others stated also more immersive in Hardcore

If the consequences of not eating/drinking water were severe enough, I would play with it on. I did my first playthrough in hardcore mode and it wasn't as hard as I expected it to be, so I turned it off for my next one and enjoyed it that way. I would like to get a mod that makes it tougher to survive, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

When I use to play on my 360 I played hardcore all the time. It really isn't that hard sometime I would forget that it was actually on. Until I saw something about getting thirsty or hungry, plus it's not hard to find food and water in the wasteland. PC on the other hand some mods can make hardcore a lot more challenging.

If you want a good challenge I recommend playing on Very Hard, Hard Core and the mod RWD: Realistic Wasteland Damage. Every fire fight will be an actual struggle even if you're up against a single person. CASM is recommended because you'll die a lot (assuming you're not starting out with godly armor, companions and weapons)

If you get Project nevada and activate the 'rebalance' there is an MCM menu with a slider to change this and much more

I'm all about the immersion, realism, and I even play on 'Very Hard' mode. That being said, Hardcore mode seems perfect for me. However, I just can't play much of it without giving in to the temptation of turning it off. It takes so much away from my favorite part of Fallout - adventuring and combat. I'll be in a very high-adrenaline shootout with some Powder Gangers but I have to keep checking my Pip-Boy to drink some purified water. Or I might be more concerned with getting some more food that I lose track of the story at hand (why are we going to get this trackfinder again?). Every playthrough I try and switch it back on and give it another go... But I've just come to terms with the fact that I'm not a big fan of the survival elements, I guess.

No I'm a wimp... I just like playing Fallout in standard mode, blowing stuff up! :')

I play without hardcore because I don't want my companion dying on me. I know hate me.

I play with it on, but I also have a mod that makes my companions essential so they won't die even though hardcore is on.

Absolutely, can't play without it, after new vegas i wanted to use Fwe in fo3 just for the primary needs, it is not a big ultra mega feature but i think that those two script and number give me something that thousand of games don't give... IMMERSION.
