Playing TW3 on Death March for the first playthrough was honestly the smartest thing i've ever done. How people can claim they finished it if playing on anything lower shouldnt even be allowed.

The Evil Within can eat shit. You had to beat the game a minimum of three times to get Platinum, and that's only if your first run was done on no upgrades. If you played normally the first time, it takes four runs.

If the story's any good, it'd feel better as a reward you get after getting through a difficult part of the game. Just tediously plowing through a complete non challenge to see what happens seems pointless. Why not just look the game up on Youtube then? It takes roughly the same effort.

I remember playing a game that did this a long time ago, can't remember the name, just that it (probably) was a JRPG and it made me furious and every time I played the game I was enraged.

>>323504403
I actually only play on easy on repeat playthrough when I just want to blast through the game again. That or in very select instances when I don't want to be too bothered by a game, sometimes I end up enjoying the game more than I thought and regretting setting it to easy halfway.

That's ok, if you're not playing on Nightmare you might as well play on Easy just to make the enemies less damage spongy in that game. Try doing the boss rush mode on Normal though.

new order on uber is boring as fuck. It takes away everything that's great about the game (over the top action, dual wielding fucking shotguns and massacre nazis) and forces you to stay in cover and pop up for headshots. You literally die in a few hits and the entire game slows down to a crawl.

New Order was easy as fuck. Can't imagine what the easiest difficulty was like. Played through the game on second highest difficulty but could have probably managed the hardest setting without too much trouble.

I wouldn't say that developing good A.I is a challenge, more that developing fair, challenging A.I is a challenge.
Lots of games just resort to letting the A.I cheat and do things like read your button inputs. Developers don't want to make A.I this ridiculously good, and aren't skilled enough to gimp it just enough so that it's fair, but hard.

I beat it on Uber and I'm a shit at FPS, it's really just about finding the best places to go in any given firefight, staying on the move, and being stealthy where possible.

The only really annoying bits are the part at the helipads at the very end of the chapter where you get the LaserKraftWerk and the last fight on the submarine with all those fucking shotgun guys. The shotgun guys are the worst.

Killer Instinct (SNES, not reboot)

There was a difficulty slider from 1 (Easiest) to 8 (Hardest). Only 4 (Default/Normal) and up allowed you to view individual character endings; otherwise, you just got a message from the devs telling you to get gud and try again on a harder difficulty.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is a great game. Everybody should play it. It's a shooter for people who loves shooters and it's got a great story. I haven't played all the way through it but I've loved everything about it.... except for this screen.

Why is this even here? What is even the point of having this kind of super-easy mode if you're going to insult anybody that might actually want to pick the easiest mode? Is this a joke difficulty that's so easy that bullets don't actually hurt you or something? I know it's a reference to earlier games in the series, but it would have been just as weird back then, too. The imagery only seems appropriate if you are designing a mode that is actually designed for a baby to play! (Note: Babies should not play Wolfenstein: The New Order).

I don't know of too many other games that do this, but Ninja Gaiden Black is somewhat infamous for its "Ninja Dog" difficulty that is even more blatant in being an insult. It just strikes me as very weird. If you're gonna include a difficulty that's so easy that you basically insult any players that might wish to choose it, than just cut it so that it's not there at all. Nobody wants to pick a difficulty level that makes fun of you.

Not sure but it definitely happens because a reviewer got called out for it and then changed his review so that no one would notice but didn't say that he had made the change.

Nice come back, don't you have a game to speed run on the hardest difficulty to prove....something to....Who again? If you're going to challenge yourself at least do something people care about. Go beat a game in world record time, go win a SF4 tournament, go join a pro SC2 team. Beating a game your first time on a mode where you die on any hit and enemies take 70000 hits to die isn't impressive, it just shows you're a fucking autist.

I generally play on normal but for some games I have no issue jumpin down to easy so it's more fun. Killing things is fun.

That was my "comeback" because sometimes, people post something that is honestly wrong in so many ways that it's not even worth correcting them.
That was you.

Also, I don't play on hard mode for anyone else. I do it for myself. And I derive pleasure from the knowledge that I was able to do it.

This is true for pretty much everyone who plays games on hard mode.

I don't expect you to get it, because you're a fucking kindergartener. But some people actually take pleasure in honing a skill or craft.

It's the same reason I do mental arithmetic, rather than grabbing a calculator. It makes you better at other, tertiary things.

But that's a side effect. Not the goal. The goal is always just to challenge yourself. If you're not trying to grow as a person, then you're a fucking useless ape who should just throw himself in the goddamn zoo.

Oh, so the issue is you're a narcissist and unable to digest the idea your opinion is not an objective fact?

And I don't. I just want to have fun because video games are entertainment, especially single player ones. If I want to test myself I'll play a competitive game or try speed running a game, not playing on a mode that literally does nothing but make me die in a hit and every enemy becomes a bullet sponge. Accept nothing you do will change others opinions and if people want to run games on easy you just have to deal with it instead of throwing a temper tantrum on a mongolian sweater enthusiasts subreddit.

Again, your opinions are not objective. What you consider the key point of a game does not necessarily hold true for others. I expect you to lash out in insults now due to an inability to process this since you spend most your time on a board that circlejerks

You are also being ultra black and white. Is it wrong for me to play easy in a genre I have never played before? Is it wrong to play easy in games where even normal is insanely hard (Catherine is a good example of this)?

It doesn't matter WHAT you think.

It matters what the creators think.

If it has gameplay, gameplay is core to the experience. Otherwise the developer would've made it a fucking book, or a movie, or anything else.

The thrill and fun of playing the harder difficulties is the fact that in order to beat them you have to master the game mechanics and use the tools provided by the game.
You don't need to do that when you play on easy, because there is really no need to. Most of the time the enemies barely hurt you and they die almost instantly, giving you no challenge at all.
You can have this amazing game in your hands and literally ruin it by playing it on easy.

Entertainment value, and killing things is fun. Explain to me the enjoyment of beating a game with artificial restraints put on you? What's the point? Games are also interactive, a movie is not. Many games change drastically based on story choices.


>>323517102
I am the consumer so yes, I do get a say. If I want to play the game for story I will, and no one can stop that. If I wish to use the disc to play fucking frisbee I can because once the game leaves the publisher, he gets no say in what the fuck I do with it within the confines of the law. If the dev did not intend for me to play on easy then he should not have put it there.

I'll be honest.
I play most games on Normal for my first playthrough, but if I really just want to know a story on the first run I have a high chance of going Easy just to get a feel for everything and prepare myself for future playthroughs.

Especially if it's a game that promotes replayability, so I can clear Easy and then immediately jump to Normal or Hard. I beat KH2 on Beginner and then skipped straight to Proud and succeeded a week later.

Sure I'll agree people that spend hundreds of hours to beat a single player game on the hardest mode are wasting their time. But honestly if you need to have such an easy experience that just shows you're easily stressed, poor at problem solving and just unintelligent in general.

The successful alpha male such as myself enjoys a riveting challenge in his free time, not some hand-holding experience for dumb plebs.

It was their option to include an Easy mode, or in more recent times 'Casual' as I literally see games call it, and they took the time to have it rebalance the game to the point that some games even actually do alter things between difficulties. Saying a game is inherently dumbed down and not the developer's intent if you play on an easier difficulty is factually incorrect because they could've simply not offered an easier difficulty in the first place and they put it there to let those who may not be 'good' at the game to get in more comfortably.

If you really think easy modes are a problem, then you're the one with issues if you're thinking like this.

It's weird, Kingdom Hearts 2 does the same thing with Proud Mode where all enemies deal 2x damage to you and genuinely gave you no benefits to compensate besides unlocking the secret ending video more easily. Critical Mode in Final Mix+ stunts your HP and MP growth as well as taking away a quarter of earned EXP, but to compensate you do 1.25x damage (which matters, a Level 1 Sora in Critical with the right setup can do more damage than a Level 60 Sora on Standard) and get a host of extra abilities and bonuses to start with plus 3 AP for gains rather than 2 AP.

Depends on the RPG. But in terms of straight-up, stat-based RPGs that often rely around turns, buffing the monsters and enemies up is usually the primary solution, yes. In ARPGs or so forth where stats aren't everything, however, there could be alternative solutions, most devs are typically really fucking lazy about it though.

Ever since I became an achievements whore I always start at the hardest difficulty to unlock all the "finish the game in this or that difficulty".

not really. they could do things like limit the amount of saves you can do every hour. or increase the damage received by everyone to realistic levels, i.e, sword slashes doing half your health or bullets killing you in one shot (deux ex did this with its 'realisitc mode').

if its rpgs you could also increase the amount of monsters, modify the positions they appear in a level to make them harder to avoid, or even have completely different skill sets for bosses on harder mode.


increasing health is just in general a boring and not effective way of increasing difficulty by itself.

Glorious work anon. That stuff was great. I think I remember reading some interview where they said they did it because of reviewers: most of them play on easy mode, and the devs were worried that they'd ding the game's AI in the score for being dumb despite that. So they wanted people to know that it knew damn well what they were doing, it was just the difficulty not their design.

That makes some sense, but often it's just more satisfactory to complete a fun game a ton of times than completing a ton of mediocre games.

For a very hard game I play on little bitch mode the first time so that I can quickly enjoy the story, for every playthrough afterwards I play the hardest difficulty available.
It's been a very long time since I've played a truly hard game though.
Also what the fuck is up with MGR, why is Very Hard harder than Revengeance?

I know, that's how it is in 3D Land

But i was referring to 3D World, which will do it if you use it, but you can also regain the shine back if you recomplete the level without it appearing

Though it is very punishing that the easiest game in the series has the most brutal death penalty, you can;t get it back in 3D Land

I've been trying to get S+ ranking on Azure Striker Gunvolt.
>you need to combo every single enemy of the stage while not getting hit even once and you must do it fast, too

Fucking devs. S Rank is often insanely difficulty in some games.

Assault Android Cactus is another game that I've played recently and requires you to combo through the entire stage.
>get hit even once
>have to restart

God. I'll still do it, though.

100% Completion on first runs. Woe behold anyone that tries this in a Tales game, or any Tri-Ace games. And nothing but Game Overs and misery lie ahead for those that try to get every Red Star Ring on their first run in Sonic Lost World.
