Game Genies: In Defense of Ease

With the advent of the classic cheat device's forthcoming revival, Camine takes a difficult position by criticizing difficulty with an unfashionable argument toward the masocore:

It's uncontroversial at this point to say that on-disc DLC, to use the popular term, "sux." Even the copyright law wonks who treat end-user license agreements as the word of God will admit that it's a low-ball move while they defend a company's right to implement it. Website comments sections all agree: it's simple greed to keep a player from accessing content that was part of the package they paid for. (Dark Souls, Gears of War Judgment, Industry, PC, PS3, Super Meat Boy, Xbox 360)

The author of this article probably wants to do away with failure of all kinds. Came last in the school marathon? Now you're joint first along with everyone else!
Call me old fashioned, but if you aren't good at games you shouldn't be able to unlock the rewards you get for proving you are.
