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%...

The whole genre revolves around fighting bosses. In these fight, you mostly dodge the attacks and hit when you can. Not really a genre, but even if you call it a genre it isn't nearly the same as...

    That is because games are made for the gamers not to please the dev. If it was to please themselves then they wouldn't need to release it. . . You could make that argument, but considering several games have even donkey could finish the game and still sell very well you would have a hard time proving an additional easier difficult would make the game sell less.

    Since all games for these 2 gens were so easy would you mind showing your playstation profile with all the platinum you have for crushing these easy games? So you consider quantity instead of quality? Wonderful, I understand why you struggle to understand why we consider that games are easier today. With that being said, developers are not obligated to provide a...

    Atlus survey asks fans what games they want ported to Switch

    Because FF is a JRPG, like most of Atlus games. A type of games with big sales in Japan. Oh, most MHW copies were sold on PS4, so the game would be almost as popular. Oh and Monster Hunter 4 was for 3DS, yeah I am sure that a 3DS game released on PS4 is a great idea. From a niche market (3DS and Japan) to a wider market (home consoles) has NOTHING to do, right? There were MH games on PS2, a...

Nobody says that you have to include an easy mode - just that it's normally not detrimental to the experience and that it doesn't affect those who don't play on easy or even storymode difficulty in any way.

    If the game is too hard, use a cheat engine. But if you complain "wah wah this is too hard, add an easy mode", you are just a cry baby. When a game is too easy, players find additionnal challenges. JRPG are good examples. ...
