The Baldur's Gate series more or less inspired "Hardcore" as we define it. It's brutally difficult to the uninitiated and requires copious amounts of meta-gaming know-how in order to defeat without reloading. It was the first game that soulmata and ThunderClaw actively corroborated together on developing strategies to play from start to finish without dying or reloading.
