Choking on difficult games – Reader’s Feature

A GameCentral reader is fed up of being beaten by choke points and difficulty spikes, and demands that games prioritise fun over challenge.

The story is too old to be commented.

When a game is too difficult, I tend to stop playing it because it becomes more of a chore instead of having fun.

Hard Reset, and Warhammer 40k Space Marine, for me these games nail the difficulty.
Hard enough for me to fight for survival, but not soo hard that I'm replaying levels over and over.
Rage on Hard was a really great experience.

I'll play a game ...fighting my way through. But, if it has difficulty spikes or artificial difficulty like infinite enemies unless you reach area x......it deminishes my enjoyment greatly.

Thinking back to all the wasted gaming due to feeling that I had to finish....

Rage on hard is excellent!
My worst exp was Conan on xbox360.....I blew through having a good time then hit the final boss who was so cheap and difficulty spike to max! I never finished it.

Shinobi (last one on PS2) was also spiky....so annoying.

I tend to believe that a difficulty spike that comes out of nowhere and is inconsistent with the rest of the game is a product of poor design on the dev's part. As well, it's a disrespect to the player and a big FU on their part. I recognize those, and i'll give those hard parts a few chances before i hang up the game for good.
