Hardest possible, unless it's maybe God of War which I play on Hard. Normal difficulty in all games is a joke, a meaningless waste of time.

Don't be too humble. 

OT: Start out with normal, normally. If it's a notoriously hard game, I might go easy. Of course I replay games at higher difficulties for fun/trophy purposes. 

But for people that say they play EVERY game at it's highest difficulty are simply lying, or have no life.

I almost always start on normal, but the hard difficulty is usually my favorite. Normal is usually too easy and the "very hard" difficulties are too challenging to be consistently fun (I usually play through the very hard difficulties once to get trophies and then go back to the hard difficulty).

Nintendo games: Hardest mode

Other games: Pansey mode

"normal difficulty" is not tweaked for the gamer with average talent and skills, normal difficulty in modern games is tweaked to suit persons with below average cognitive skills (or small children really. My neighbors are a 7 year old girl and 8 year old boy with average cognitive skills. and they play Dead Island, Skyrim, Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield on normal and they have no problems to advance through these games and complete them)

"Hard" is usually how a modern developer imagines the experience they want a typical gamer to experience.

Gaming is not just supposed to be a relaxed ride, but should also demand significant effort and concentration, and challenge is an important part of the experience.

The hardest difficulty settings unless we are talking about games like Super Meat Boy and I Wanna Be The Guy ( I don't want  my head to start bleeding when gaming)

Depends on how good/experienced I'm with that genre, but I usually play on default/medium/normal.

Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

easiest first, then the hardest.

Depends where the game is from; Japan or America/Europe. Especially Americans think we're babies and make their games as casual as possible. Even on Hard their games are too easy.

Hardest option available.
