Games with an immediately punishing difficult curve I couldn't be bothered to draw out some fun from them are rare. The likes of Ninja Gaiden or Super Mario Bros The Lost Levels, they're okay to play in small doses and try to get better at.

But let's say the Hyper Street Fighter II CPU AI. Forget that ****.

No games are truly hard, unless you want to reach guinness world record.

In most scenario to reach a decent level, you simply need to understand the easy learning curve, but on PC on people tend to hide on purpose.

It's not normal that you're stuck repeating to your teammate about peeking & lag compensation...
How to implement it in their gameplay & but still don't get it.

Reasonable reasons for not liking games is very very subjective.

I could hate Dark Souls games because they are too hard, but also love Silver Surfer on NES and think it's not hard.

It depends on the person....subjective.
Never forget, it's not Blizzard. It's Activision Blizzard

This game is too hard is something thrown around by people who also say life is too hard.

Lazy, incompetent and entitled.

You have to work for that sense of pride and accomplishment (tm).

Hard or not, if you're not having fun, then you should stop.


Yeah, but when people play sports and they think it's too hard, and they don't spend countless hours training to be the best they missed an opportunity.


I'm 30 years old. Played baseball in college, managed to find success at that level with All American honors although endured painstaking damage to my body. Throughout the 30 years of my life I've been a gamer and even when I went to practice or had punishment running and was throwing up before my first class at 8am, I found time to game.

Playing in front of a big stage never scared me, but games with high learning curves did! lol. As I look back and am now out of shape, maybe I should push through a game with a high learning curve, because I was rewarded when I pushed through what I thought at the time was impossible expectations with athletics?

Someone else probably covered it, but I've generally been fine with games being "too hard" as long as they provide feedback for the player to learn from their failure. Encountering something ridiculously hard but going "You know what, on that last try I think I know how I could have done better" is different than "Yeah I don't know what I'm doing wrong".

Really? I sure hope you don't actually believe that bulls***.

So in your opinion, a person who worked to put themselves through college without help, holds a 40 hour per week job, spends another 20-40 hours per week doing volunteer service work at any hour of the day or night, and just wants to come home now and then and unwind/de-stress by playing a game to provide distraction and entertainment without it being too difficult is lazy, incompetent, and entitled? You're full of s***. Not every gamer has the same goals for gaming you do, and there's absolutely no reason to demean anyone for that.

Lol no. In fact, if I read a review stating such a thing I stop reading. Unless they are saying it is too hard due to a glitch or just poor design, but that's rarely the case. Games these days are so streamlined and so well made technically that the only difficulty a person should run into is playing online against actual, breathing humans.

I don't like Assassin's Creed III because it's too difficult to like.

hard games are alright sometimes,, but more times then not as I've gotten older I like to push down the difficulty settings.. don't really have the time to put into games like I once did,, so I try to push the game along and get everything I can out of it, without the frustration of dying a thousand times..
