Not every game needs to be an epic struggle, but Matt Byrd of Pixel Critique thinks there are five gaming franchises that would benefit from turning up the heat a bit.
who the hell is dark souls II used as a game tag?
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.
Fable. You can hold down the attack button and not die the entire game. To child friendly.
mario,pokemon,uncharted, metro and of course devil may cry.
