You might find this a little strange, but I have been thinking a lot about a big question in gaming at the moment: Are games too hard?
Here’s my problem, I don’t think that is the question? It feels like the question people want push, but it isn’t the true question at hand.
You see the problem with the question is that it’s too broad a question, at what point do you draw the line; Are phone games too hard, bored games, roll play, word scramble, bat and ball. Even if we just look a consoles we would need to narrow that down.
Is the difficulty from the questions?
The game is too fast?
Too much to keep track of?
Too many buttons?
Too many commands?
Or are we talking about artificial difficulty?
This is when they make a game hard just for the sake of being hard. This was tactic used in the of Arcade games to get more money out of you/ make short games last longer.
If you struggle with a particular style of game, your not going to play that game.
What is the true question?
I have feeling that I know the answer, but I don’t think many gamer would be happy with the question. It’s an issue I have taken with modern day gaming for a very long time, and I feel the excuse people have been using won’t hold up much longer.
T_O I’m going to watch some anime and chill.
