Is it to make up for lack of game length?

Because all AAA games nowadays with "super hard modes" are actually " Easy" modes

Fake answer: To make you suffer on a first playthrough, then become invincible and show off with combos and stuff.

Real answer: To force you into using the game's mechanics.

What games have they made that are hard? I'm only familiar with Bayonetta, and yeah there are hard modes but the main game on normal is fun and not very challenging. I mean, the harder you go yeah, it get's tough, but you don't have to play that way. Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, at least, are difficult all the way through, with no option for change.

Because someone has to.

And Vanquish is the only hard game they've made.
