Most of those games are RPGs, I'm playing The Surge right now and at first I died early on in the first area, I now am walking through that area slaughtering everything because I leveled up myself and my items. Same goes for Bloodborne, first area is only hard when you start, it's nothing by like 3 hours into the game with a better weapon and gear and once used to the mechanics of the game. In the end the games aren't hard just punishing if you make mistakes.
Begs the question of whether I've ever played a 'hard game'. CoD 4 on Veteran is hard as you die in a split second from nowhere, so I just kinda didn't bother with it, yet I completed Dragon Age Inqusition on Nightmare with relative ease (class setup helps).
