i suppose you can always do what i did if it doesnt have a hardcore mode you just stop, close everything, delete your saves and start over if you die

now a days its like they have to make them with unlimted lives because a major business for them is little kids and they don't know how to play so they have to dumb it down

or it's just about the story, like they don't care how many lives it takes as long as you press x and a and these moment for this part so this happens..

i just don't know anymore

that's ridiculous
in the past, we needed to make games insanely hard and with as few lives as possible to make them last
really, how much would mega man II last if it didn't had those insanely hard bosses, the extremely few lives and having to start all over again? Not much longer than a smartphone game
but with time, games could be made longer, more complex, more developed
now you don't need to have 2 lives the entire game to make it last, they already last 10 hours on their own
and if you like challenge, much of them offer a extra hard mode, instead of the "PLAY THIS OR YOU'RE ******!" mindset of old-timey games
TL;DR:
so it hasn't been "dumbed down", it just changed. Its not necessary to keep the old elements of classic games in the new ones.
They're too different. (and I mean, "comparing pong with mega man II" different)
