Gareth Williams on the 'concept of making mistakes' in games and how getting the balance right is crucial especially with the increasing number of casual gamers becoming a core target market for every developer

yep, games like dark souls does it right imo, but games that are too easy are boring and have no challenge. and to me right now as im playing batman arkham city its boring me to tears
