Until recently I have always chosen the highest difficulty for sports games, in particular football (soccer) games i.e. FIFA or Pro Evolution, and medium difficulty for most other games but I now find myself challenging that decision and if you read on you'll find out why I now believe that games should not allow the gamer to choose the difficulty setting.
