Game developers began trying to broaden their audiences, what was once "Normal" is now "Hard" simply to make people feel like they're reasonably skilled at a video game.

Well it is also a matter of what is capable with technology now. Games can be much longer and more diverse for audiences when before it was very limited in scope and to increase the playtime you could get out of a game they had to make them hard. SNES games were considerably more difficult so that players wouldn't feel cheated that the material was relatively short and could be completed very quickly if not for multiple deaths and checkpoint restarts.

However if we take a look at oldschool first person shooters such as Doom, they are reasonably difficult games on nearly all difficulty levels however they are by no means short. Honestly I believe that the old system of having all of weapons on you at the same time rather than only two was better because it allowed outstanding level designers to truly shine, in oldschool first person shooters you were only given the amount of resources necessary which I contributed to the difficulty.

But as your avatar kindly reminded me, I'm not perfect. This could all be the ramblings of an idiot for all I know.

Couldn't have put it better myself, thumbs for you!
User avatar #4 to #3 - crazyolitis (08/29/2013) [-]
Thanks! I'd thumb you, but I've got internet problems, and any thumb I give just disappears...
User avatar #14 to #4 - halvizzle (08/30/2013) [-]
you probably got vote-banned then if your thumb just disappears, i have the same problem.
User avatar #17 to #14 - crazyolitis (08/30/2013) [-]
Yeah I found that just out. I don't even know what I got thumb-banned for.
User avatar #20 to #17 - halvizzle (08/30/2013) [-]
same here, its either for thumbing up porn or to participate in these so called thumb orgies but ive done none of those so i guess admin in on a banning spree.
User avatar #21 to #20 - crazyolitis (08/30/2013) [-]
Probably.

I can't believe I didn't see that until after I posted it. I swear I can stare at something after making it for an hour, then see three mistakes as soon as I hit "post"

I tried to play DS on keyboard+mouse
God. That was one of the worst experiences ever.
Also port of this game is one of the worst experiences.

DSfix man, it's a life saver.

I use this. Pretty well enchance of graphic. Armours didn't looked like **** .

#24 to #11 - penguinthegreat (08/30/2013) [-]

Can we start a thumb orgy because this level thing is BS and ****** over the old timers. This account is 2 years old and I have been on this site since it had a yellow layout.

So ******* post something you *******

Thumb orgies won't help at all.
Admin sent out a notice a while ago that anyone participating in one loses their thumbing rights, so you'd just make it worse for yourself attempting that.

well atleast in Doom 3 nightmare enemies don't respawn
though it's still as hard as my dick was when I read the title

Even DMC on Heaven/Hell mode is nearly impossible since only one hit will kill you and the enemies are much harder to kill. But that level of impossibility isn't really what I'm talking about.
#48 to #47 - deathklokiller (08/30/2013) [-]
oh ok so like halo 1 hard?   
   
and maybe its me and my mastery of dmc dante must die or heaven/hell mode isnt impossible...hard if you are not prepared

I just took such a tremendous amount of hits during the normal playthrough that I knew I didn't want to torture myself with trying to play it without taking a hit. And yea I just mean picking a hard setting on easy games, a normal setting on difficult games, anything that actually presents a challenge.
User avatar #50 to #49 - deathklokiller (08/30/2013) [-]
ok i go you, hint #1 get all the upgrades in the game before going into that mode #2 play the levels until you master it
User avatar #51 to #50 - kennyh (08/30/2013) [-]
Well I have GameFly so a have incentive to play a game through once, maybe twice, then send it in and start on the next instead of dumping huge amounts of time into each game. Since I am paying the same amount whether I play 4 games a month or 1 game a year.
User avatar #53 to #51 - deathklokiller (08/30/2013) [-]
understandable it sucks man
User avatar #56 to #53 - kennyh (08/30/2013) [-]
It works out. If I rent a game I really like (Skyrim, Fallout 3, Fallout NV) I just keep it for a few extra bucks. The vast amount of time I have put into those games.. keeps me occupied during gaps when they are sending me games because they don't mail as fast as netflix.
User avatar #57 to #56 - deathklokiller (08/30/2013) [-]
i is a pirate and only buy the game for my console if i liked it or im feeling nice
User avatar #59 to #57 - kennyh (08/30/2013) [-]
You know right up till this moment I had no clue what that blue eye meant.
I thought it meant something I just didn't understand.

glad eye helped

I still hate those damn AI in Battlefield when they get a sniper -.-
User avatar #33 - northleech (08/30/2013) [-]
Some games are easy in concept, and just made hard on insane difficulties because the sheer force they put into an enemy (how much work did they put into making the game harder on harder difficulties? Did they add a 0 on the health and damage bars?)
A game that is hard in a fun way is either hard by concept, and you have to actually spend time to master the game's systems. You can also put a lot of time into the difficulties in game (like adding entirely new content/enemies or changing the place where enemies spawn (Bayonetta is a good example of this).

some games really are easy even on their hardest difficulty.
User avatar #29 - upyourarsinal (08/30/2013) [-]
i started my first deadspace 3 game on hard just because i felt like it

Pffff dificulty settings... Darksouls doesnt even give you the choice to enjoy the game... Then guess what happens when you beat it? they make you start over again making the game even more difficult. IMO you shouldn't be allowed to bitch until your have beaten the DarkSouls series...
User avatar #28 to #27 - aguywithlonghair (08/30/2013) [-]
there are harder games then Dark Souls you know.
User avatar #26 - bronybox (08/30/2013) [-]
I always play my first playthrough of a game on the hardest or seconds to hardest difficulty. (I ain't playin' no Dead Space on hardcore, not like I even could with DS3)
User avatar #18 - Apex (08/30/2013) [-]
The only game I own I'm yet to fully complete on the hardest difficulty, solo, full play-through, is Skyrim.. >.>
User avatar #43 to #18 - kennyh (08/30/2013) [-]
Well now it has a new hard setting, "Legendary".
User avatar #16 - ldial (08/30/2013) [-]
I didn't even know Skyrim had a hardness setting. I set it Master. not sure if i want to jump straight all the way up. Legendary Dragons are a ************ now.
User avatar #13 - polop (08/30/2013) [-]
I'm playing Saints Row 4 right now. Hardest difficulty and its too easy imo, and I'm usually terribad at vidya games.
User avatar #22 to #13 - localbees (08/30/2013) [-]
I enjoy the easiness. Plowing through Zin like a... A huge superpowered bulldozer?
User avatar #23 to #22 - polop (08/30/2013) [-]
Don't get me wrong, Saints Row is fun, i just find the missions too easy. It seems easier on Hardcore for me on SR4 than SR3 did on Normal.
User avatar #25 to #23 - localbees (08/30/2013) [-]
Yeah. I find myself using some of the guns I haven't upgraded more, because it makes it a little harder. I mean, singularity gun, what's the fun in that?
#12 - olicoooombs (08/30/2013) [-]
I like playing games on easy. Because I suck at most games and when I fail multiple times I get frustrated. And playing on easy makes me feel like a god.
