I don't like the way gaming is going its too much hand holding now days

I know right, Skyrim is a huge example, good game but not as good as Oblivion or Morrowind. They dumbed it down a bit instead of focusing on the fanbase they already had.

I'm sick of casual gamers, they're ruining this industry.

I remember the days when gaming was a "thing", you either liked it or you didn't, no one pretended to like it or were sheep it was just a great thing to be a part of where the industry focused on you.

Skyrim is still more hardcore than most games though.. Current games.

I agree. But in some ways, I also like it. I don't have the time any more to invest hours and hours in certain games.

It's perfectly fine. Not that serious. You need to accessible nowadays. Games usually have difficulty levels anyway so the point is moot.

The more accessible the more games there is which is good.

Multiplayer has difficulty levels?

The point not sounding mute now, huh?

Multiplayer is a totally different discussion. However, there are ways to make multiplayer games, particularly shooters, more accessible.

The reason games were so difficult back in the day is because arcades were still very relevant to the market and those things were brutal as well. Arcades not really relevant to the industry (not nearly as much as they used to be anyway) and many non-gamers are now engaging in the gaming scene. It's only natural that games would become easier for the masses.
