E.g. Demon's Soul, Dark Souls, the OLD school sidescrollers?

I like games that are challenging, however it seems like gamers today always want games to be super difficult. Do they enjoy dying 100 times or something? If you keep losing, you'll have no interest and stop playing, thus never finishing the game. Games that are on the easy side are good, in that it's fun AND you don't have to die 100 times :P

Because for some people that's the correct amount of praise. Almost every game is someone's perfect game.

No, if YOU keep losing you quit. I don't.

Because games released for the modern gamers have too many crutches. They're dumbed down, have too many quick time events, and don't offer a challenge. Games with a challenging difficulty are rare these days so when one is released, gamers praise it.

Exactly. I love it when a game can kick my ass repeatedly. Makes beating it that much more satisfying.

If I keep losing and when I finally get past that obstacle even if it was a boss I can be like "you messed with the wrong person, didn't you?".
