Right, so here’s a thing. I love Cave games. They’re widely recognised as some of the toughest games in the world. Totally unforgiving. Play. Die. Play. Get a tiny bit further. Die. Repeat.
Yet when it comes to action games, I nearly always play on easy. It’s not that I don’t like the challenge. It’s just that time is precious and I want to experience it all as quickly and painlessly as possible. It’s laziness, I suppose. Perhaps when I’ve clocked the SP I might return on a higher difficulty for the challenge (as I did recently with Killzone 3).
