    Chrkeller said: This topic has been made overly convoluted and has meaningless complexity. Let me start with a few things:1) Dark Souls is my second favorite franchise of all time. 2) Dark Souls 3 is my second favorite game of all time. 3) I have beaten Demon, Souls 1, Souls 2, Souls 3 and Blood... and yes I can beat them all solo. Adding a difficulty setting:1) Very easy, just reduce enemy...

    Chazore said: Yes it does. The very fact you have to argue the validation of not allowing for optional difficulty stems from it. If you have no qualms of games (especially Souls-like) having options, you wouldn't bar the gates. Also no, enough with the "every game doesn't have to appeal to you" as a means of deflection the mere staple of all games, in having difficulty choices. Having...

Great. So you refuse to understand that I can accept that some games have an easy mode but I also don't want an easy mode in every game.  Yes, when at the beggining I have to decide a...

I don't play this kind of games, I don't know why some people would play them and I don't really care if they have fun. I like to target specific achievements in Europa Universalis IV, some tries are taking 30h+ but I can...

Or rather, since you are getting old...

    DonFerrari said: SvennoJ said: It's just the notion that you find it 'selfish' to request easier options in 'your' games that irks me. Basically the lack of options is there because some people lack self control when it comes to playing games and don't have the back bone not to use crutches when the going gets a little tough. Isn't that 'selfish'? Easily solved though, add trophies...

    What's the point of playing a game you can't lose? To enjoy the game without stress. You can't lose adventure or puzzle games, plenty challenge there. For example https://indreams.me/dream/mUvEzWskFXxhttps://indreams.me/dream/mUvEzWskFXx How long does it take you to finish all puzzles. But perhaps it would be better with a timer running that resets all progress if you don't solve it in...

    SvennoJ said: Alcyon said: Then Dark Souls isn't for you. I don't like racing games, so I don't play racing games. Should they add "more options" and give me a "non-racing option" in their racing game? Or perhaps, I say perhaps, I should not play racine games? There's way more to souls games than just beating the difficulty. Racing games have many options as well. Only 5%...
