Give It to Me Hard: The Decline of Video Game Difficulty

Think to your favorite game the current console generation. Bioshock? Mass Effect 2? Gears of War? Modern Warfare 2? K, now pretend you have put that game on the default setting ; the setting that developers believe caters to most game buyers. Do you think it would be perfectly feasible for most gamers to make it through 3 or 4 levels at a time without even dying once?

The story is too old to be commented.

It is true that games have become less difficult, but as a result they have become more acceptable and accessible in popular culture. It's ideal for our medium to have exposure to as much of popular culture as it can. Besides, we still have our 'hard' games: Demon's Souls, Ninja Gaiden, Braid, etc.

there will always be hard games, now we just have to look harder for them.
