Do you like your games "easy"?
Do you like your games easy or easier than say, PS2 and PS1 games in the past? Do you like where video games are going in terms of difficulty?
I don't, I truly don't. I agree with the thought that video games these days hold your hand throughout the entire game. It doesn't have to be as hard as say, Ikaruga for the Gamecube, but you don't have to make it super easy either. A lot of people won't even try Demon Souls or Dark Souls because it's too hard, but that's how hard some SNES games were back in the day. I prefer the SNES version of Chrono Trigger because it's just more challenging.
What I do like is games like Uncharted 3 give you a choice such as Crushing and Hard.
