This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

It's disgusting people (mostly males) base fun of pointlessly hard games.

I play for fun and relaxation, and while I sometimes enjoy a challenge, I don't like being frustrated badly and sort of enjoy being godlike in games. That said, some of the griping TC mentions does bug me a bit as I think vocal, "elite" types sometimes do actually influence the devs. I could obviously be wrong, but I think there is a chance this happened with Gearbox and Borderlands 2, that the spike in difficulty from the first may have at least partly been a result of all the complaining on their official boards.

For my part, I just wish devs would add in difficulty settings whenever possible. I know some games you can't, but with many, no reason not to have a wide range of settings, so that it can appeal to all ability levels. Without them, a game will pretty much always be too hard for some and too easy for others.

What's up with all these double standards? Some girls thinking guys have huge male egos, when girls have them if not worse.

Women get mad if another Women.

1. Has bigger Breast than her.
2. Is in Better shape than her.
3. More popular at school or work than her.
4. Looks more Beautiful than her.
5. Wears similar outfit as her.
6. Loses her man to another woman, because they want to win.

lol I could go on an on, but TC if you're going to judge one side, you mine as well judge the other so double standards won't smack you in the face.

I only see some women acting like that and as a female myself I've never done any of those things. Well except for 5 with my twin sister but we try to dress differently so people will be less confused on who is who and so we can have some individuality. With other women we don't care lol.

I myself love to play hard games just so I can test and enhance my skills. Not every game has to be hard however I don't agree with thinking hard games are hard just to satisfy males egos.

hey TC, calm down man. the same way you feel a sense of accomplishment, in your own words, "after cooking the perfect meal", some people feel a sense of accomplishment for beating a game in the most difficult setting. the reason behind them could actually be very similar. YOU cooked a perfect meal. an accomplishment not just anyone can achieve. makes you feel a bit superior. same with insane difficulty. it weeds out the mediocre.

im not saying i care one way or another. you have a right to your opinion (unless your country doesnt allow that freedom...). i will say this though, most games these days have an "easy" setting. set it, play it, and enjoy. no need to bash others for their opinions (the way they shouldnt bash you for yours)

but hey, what do i know? this is the internet. where everyone is always wrong because their opinion is different from my own.

I like a challenge in games, but I don't need games to be impossibly hard. I have other things to do as well.
Sometimes you've got to say "hey, i'm gonna **** you.....softly"

If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh.

I play games at a difficulty that's comfortable for me. Usually, that's on normal, but sometimes I'll lower it to easy if I'm dying too much or battles take too long, or hard if I don't feel enough of a challenge.

I'm not one of those people who likes to brag that he beat the game on it's hardest mode. That's just macho bombast I'm thankful to have grown out of.
