This. The entitlement baffles me.

Especially with Dark Souls, since it's not even very difficult. Do these people want to just sleepwalk through the game?


And yet...including an easy mode would not change your ability to play the game one jot.

The only real result would be more people able to play the game and get enjoyment out of it.

The game is balanced for one difficulty, and as a result has a really satisfying experience. I don't want an easy mode for that reason. I don't care if people play games on easy, but that game has a specific appeal to it.

Honestly the only stupid reason to dislike a game is for judging it without playing it, like my friend did with Demon's Souls until he played it and he loved it. Even if you dislike something because it's popular, that may mean you want more games catered to you and you're correct for that viewpoint, a certain popular FPS wiped out health bars for a long time. Art style for me is a big deal, Fortnite looks unappealing to me. It's the same reason I never played Dark Cloud.
Geforce GTX whatever, i7 something or rather, some sticks of ram, an SSD and a Hard Drive with stuff on it.

Ultimately, people aren't required to like everything you like, dubious reasoning aside. That's life.

You opened the inventory with Esc.

Yup. Gave a friend the opportunity to play Terraria. He lasted until he tried to open the inventory by pressing a single random button, and it didn't open.

"What the hell? Why isn't the inventory opening?!"
"You gotta press Escape. It opens with escape."
"WHAT THE f***?! WHY DOES IT OPEN WITH ESCAPE?! NO GAME EVER OPENS A MENU WITH ESCAPE!"

His face turned red, he slammed his fists on the desk next to the keyboard, then leapt from the chair and stormed out of the room. It didn't get any better when he came back and I casually mentioned that you use escape to access a menu to quit most games, or go to options.

It was a special time.


Your friend has unresolved anger/mental issues. To get red in the face over a key binding is far from normal.

And it wouldn't be the game the designers wanted to make.


But...that game still exists. It just also has an easy mode.
Don't go waving "But mah artistis vishun!" around as an excuse for exclusionary thinking.

I'd rather play the game for the lore and the story, seeing what the world has in store and all the different environments there are. I imagine most developers would be happier knowing someone managed to see all the stuff they put hard work into than to know 50% of them never could because of a skill barrier.

Again, no-one is saying "Let's make Dark Souls easier and screw anyone who likes it how it currently is". You lose literally nothing by having an easier mode.

It's not an excuse. They're not obligated to cater to everyone. If you're not one of the people they choose to cater to then it truly sucks to be you. That's the way they built it and yes it is absolutely their prerogative to do so.

And yes, you do lose something by having easier mode. You cheapen the experience for everyone who chooses to run through it on that easier mode. You dull the impact. They might not realize it, they might not care. Doesn't matter. It's still there. You also expend resources on detuning the game to account for it.
Even I'm not crazy enough to believe that distortion of reality

Because they "tried playing it and didn't find it fun"... Pfffff, who needs fun, games are serious business!
