A Tarkov alike mobile shooter, my favorite hardcore mobile game since I knew from its existence. Very realistic weapon mechanics and great firearm customization options. Got over 2M koens, so it's relatively easy to farm money.

The ultimate Zombie survival game EVER. I'll say this my N°1 favorite game, with +210h. A very detailed and definitely painful game. It has a great emphasis on the character's health. And as DayZ, if you die, you lose your doodoo.

A very realistic hardcore zombie game. It has great survival mechanics, but I'll say repetitive sometimes. Oh, and if you die you lose everything. This brings me some nostalgia when in Xbox people started to randomly say the N-word and experiencing the goofiest and funniest interactions.

It's a turn based and simple, yet effective in making you suffer. It has some PZ and DayZ vibe, even tho I've never seen a zombie. It's still in development, but it's damn good in the survival mechanics.

A DayZ, but mini? And yes, it's still hardcore but simpler. Bohemia definitely did a great work on this one with a pixel art phone alternative to DayZ on its finest (not like the 2nd game, ehem....)

Another Isometric and also 5/5 stars game, but why? Because I live with my parents and I've never touched a woman before. This Dark Souls but with shockingly complex (ngl sometimes goofy) active-ragdoll-even-in-controls game will entertain you for a long time. It's also hard to learn the controls.

With this game, I mean the whole franchise. I know, it's technically not hardcore, but if you go on iron mode you'll really think otherwise. It's unique and beautiful, and you can't deny it.

This one is simpler and less complex than the others, but damn fire. I also know this isn't hardcore, but if you go on hardest difficulty, like in S.T.A.L.K.E.R, you'll value more your life because you'll lose everything if you die (only on the hardest mode tho).

I haven't play this one yet, but it looks very promising, almost like a PZ but with a spawn mod and physics, and only 2D pixel art style, and some other thing. Okay, just similar to Project Zomboid.

This one isn't actually realistic in the true sense of words, like some of the ones that I've shown before. Here you can be a swordman, wow! But you can also die in painful ways to lose your progress, WOW!!

It's like DayZ, but cheeper and with more guns in vanila servers, and also with Tarkov vibes. I should probably add SCUM, and also get a job, probably.

Arcade but it does its work well. It was a request, and had me wondering, is it really hardcore? I mean, you can lose your loot and your base, making you start over again. I'll add it anyways.

Is a turn based survival game, and all that. Simple, detailed and pretty realistic even tho it's sci-fi. It even has a story, but you gotta pay for it.

So, Tarkov? I forgot this one existed, but damn, the graphics look fire. Still not out yet. I think I'm running out of ideas. Damn.

So I played the SoD 2 but no the other. I never died because I was too afraid of actually losing my characters tho, but when you have a survivor that has the infection, it really makes you go out and risk yourself more to cure them.

Another DayZ alike, I know. But hey, it was pretty entertaining back then.

Erm, Arena Breakout but Chineser (i didn't mean to sound racist lol)? Back then was the only available option and I played this game a lot (I actually just have 30h) and was entertaining, but not hardcore. I could maybe extract 10 times out of 12 without difficulty. It was also extremely buggy too.

Never played it, but got a friend who did a lot. He said it was a good game but it ain't my favorite.

too bad you didn't add Rust. to be fair it's more of an occupation than a game. one death can give you a huge setback.
