I for one say yes. Wild difficulty spikes hve been one of the banes of my 30 years of gaming. Nothing better than being able to solve that with a trip to the menu. It might be cheap or cheating, but its added many hours to my gaming so I guess it's worth it.

while I personally dislike changing difficulties mid-game, I don't see a reason why it couldn't be an option.

I would say yes, but mostly for easy games that have little to no difficulty. They need hard modes where the game is actually challenging.

Edit, what I was talking about was games have difficulty settings period, not necessarily whether or not you could change them mid-game.

no. adapt and overcome. i don't knock games for including difficulty sliders/options, but i also would not hate on a game for having nothing but one difficulty that just gets more challenging.

I'm of the opinion that options are a good thing. I don't know why I wouldn't want a good thing.

"Cute" in an RPG is a kiddy euphemism for "Sexy".

I don't see why not. It does work both ways. If a game is getting too infuriating then it's like would you rather redo the last 6 hours or change the difficulty right away. Also for people who find the current setting not challenging then they could dial it up to a harder setting.

Yes

Games like Assassin's Creed comes to mind.

Also, as for ingame difficulty change, fine, but only down, never back up.

If they're gonna do it, they may as well go all the way. Adding in a bunch of restrictions like that is just stupid.

If a game is not gonna have the option, it needs to offer some form of grinding to make the character more powerful. Even action games need this. Like Bayonetta- going to previous levels to grind gold. Whereas, for example, its hard to grind in a god of war game because there's only so many orbs to be found and you can hardly go back to previous levels. So if you truly can't beat a boss, you're in forna rude awakening. And changing it too easy is for keeps. Just let me do more grinding.
