As someone who's been playing games for over 20 years i never really found games that hard to begin with.
Most games offer somewhat of a challenge on hard today. Like Call of Duty on Veteran, i don't know if it was hard or just frustrating but it definitely wasn't a breeze.
Results 26 to 37 of 37
I think some games now a days are easy compared to the games back in the days, I'm guessing that has to do with them trying to please the casual players. As for less awarding, hell yeah. I remember back in the days having to look forward to finding out what I could unlock/surprises after beating the game, but now, what we get after is having to pay for DLC.

I don't believe so. I think you look at a game like uncharted for example very unpredictable. I do however sometimes pick up a game and think really? This is it?!
I think the reason why many games have a variety of different difficulty levels is to cater for everyone. I play a lot of games and I like to finish games regardless of whether I'm enjoying them or not. I often play a game on the easiest difficulty level and then if I like it play it again on the harder difficulty.
I think there's plenty of games out there that offer real challenge, but sometimes it's quite nice just to be able to breeze through.
Yeah, if you want the game to be difficult, just set the difficulty level to the highest setting. For the game Blazblue, I thought it was quite easy at first...then I set it to like...a brutal difficulty. It's like it was a whole new game.
The thing is, I don't want to amp up the difficulty to make it stupid challenging, like having overpowered ai that knows your every move or wall hacks. I don't really know how to explain it but games back then didn't need high difficulty to be hard
I agree with the DLC comment DLC's sucked the fun out of games I remember playing street fighter and beating arcade in a special way to unlock chars now we get colors or useless crap, and now we have to pay 5.99 or 19.99 to get chars that should already be in the game..

Ive found with most games that the AI has been subpar.. I usually ramp up to the highest difficult to increase game time/value and therefor makes it more rewarding. Although sometimes you want that kick everythings *** no problem game seshSix Years With PSU!~ Favourite Games of all Time~ Smash Bros, Spyro, GTA series and Elder Scrolls Series

I agree, games have gotten more easy and less rewarding...well, technically you do get more unlocks but the satisfaction isn't there because these games hold your hand most of the way and require less thought process.
Difficulty isn't the only avenue towards player satisfaction. But yes, for games where a challenge seems necessary for the world to make sense, I typically have to choose the highest difficulty offered.
