I enjoy the threat of failure in a game, as it makes success that much more rewarding... It isn't that complex of a concept and certainly doesn't warrant an entire article.

I simply can't enjoy games that offer no challenge, especially when I'm paying $60 each for them.

I'm still interested in playing this game at some point. Even if it is "easy".

I enjoy the occasional game that isn't grit-your-teeth hard. I'd still purchase PoP.

There's a lot more to this article than "it's easy." There's a lot of other concepts brought up.

Personally though, I disagree with every single word of it. I don't think PoP offered no challenge, but if a game is too easy it definitely takes away from the enjoyment of it.

I'd say most extremes take away from games. If it's too hard it just pisses you off. Specificly if you don't have much time to play.

Only a few, but the general response is favorable
