How much better would someone be at a game if they played hardmode at the start

I wouldn't get any better, I'd just get frustrated and lower the difficulty. But I don't play games for them to be difficult.

I feel starting on hard is more time consuming but it forces you to learn the inns and ours of the game faster. Easier modes don't usually require advanced techniques required to beat the game at harder levels. I read the recommendations of difficulty a lot more now because some games on hard are really only meant for those who beat the game.

Assume that a hard mode/very hard mode is unlocked at the start of a game, or they acquire a 100% save. How much better or worse of a player would someone be if

1. They played a game at hard mode or at the hardest level on their first playthrough

compared to

2.An individual who starts off on normal? /Where the enemies are easy at first, or basic in difficulty.

I have action games in mind, but you may take into account other genres as well.

I did that for strangers wrath to get all the difficulty trophys in one go.

it was hell, especially if you wanted to take everyone in alive.
Don't bother arguing with Sophi he'll never admit hes wrong even when he is :D.
