Video games often use a simple, hooking formula: to beat the final boss and save the day, you have to work for it. In most games, you unlock the final boss only after completing the required levels. Some games, however, allow you to fight the final boss from the beginning of the game. Defeating the final boss is often impossible or incredibly challenging; in order to beat the powerful antagonist, you must strengthen your avatar and your own gaming abilities. Hardcore players ignore this formula and head straight for the boss.
