Do you start games on Easy,Normal or Hard?

Generally I start on easy in any game that gives the option. If I end up really liking the game, after that easy playthrough I work up the difficulty ladder. I don't have a problem playing a game multiple times if I enjoyed it. If it wasn't a game that I overly enjoyed, a single playthrough on easy is good enough for me.

Until recently, I always started on the hardest difficulty possible, but nowadays (for the past year or two), I play on normal only. I only bother with harder difficulties if I really REALLY love the game.

I don't want my first experience of a game to be too challenging, I want to be able to enjoy the gameplay and mechanics first before I decide to test my skills, but at the same time, I'm no p****, so normal is the way to go~

The only games I did on hard first playthrough were the Uncharted games because I wanted to unlock Crushing for some reason

it depends... if there is are benefits on playing on Hard vs normal.

Hard unless Hard is the highest difficulty. Then I pick normal just in case I love the game enough to want to play it over again.

I almost always play thorough a game the first time on Normal. I can't think of the last time that I turned the difficulty down to Easy. I try to replay every game I own, so when I do revisit them, I usually up the difficulty to Hard.

Always hard games are way to easy these days the only times I've regretted it were with Dark souls. Max Payne almost made me regret doing it but I made it through the game eventually.
