Just how bad is Hardcore? I will normally play a game on the hardest difficulty setting unless it spoils the game... CoD World At War is a perfect example of this... Veteran was so nasty that it just spoiled the game to play it - it stopped being enjoyable...

So how does hardcore effect you?

It's not a difficulty mode, actually.
It basically makes you have to do things that would normally be required of you, as a human. From what I understand, you have to drink water, eat, sleep, and go to a doctor if you're injured (broken limbs and concussions, not health depletion). Also, stimpacks no longer insta-heal you. They heal you over time.

But you can put this on top of any other difficulty (Easy-Hardcore or Hard-Hardcore).
