I’m one of those.
1. All games should not be for everyone
2. Most modern games are allready way to easy even on hardest difficulty
3. Instant gratification people will never understand this
Complaining about said game's maximum difficulty is a valid criticism, but it isn't related to this thread. And there is nothing wrong in trying to appeal to a wider audience as long as the regular difficulty setting remains unchanged. Actually, in a perfect world, providing more options should increase sales and thus potentially the budget and overall quality of the series. Literally everyone ends up winning, but of course we can't always have that because countless elitists/man-children will be upset for reasons they can't even explain, effectively harming the reputation of the series.
Ideally, more options is a good thing, but realistically, it may not be. Because reality includes those who complain about non-existing problems.
