Not that I'm a pro-gamer or anything, but I tend to play most games on hard settings 'cos they last longer, more thrilling/challenging to play and I love trophies.

Unfortunately, few games A.I. are programmed to provide a serious challenge. Most resort to the old less health, more enemies scam.

Over the years many games have either dumbed down or are way to easy so they can accommodate the 'casual market'. Apparently that's where the money is.

I'd love to see difficulty levels in The Legend of Zelda. Coupled with an open world environment. No more linear story structure. It's my favorite gaming series but it could most certainly use a shakeup.

Probably the franchise that needs to raise the difficulty better than any other one is Call of Duty. But then if Activision does it COD's popularity will plummet.

I always play on easiest setting. I want a story, not headache.
