Sometimes it’s better to know how to be humble, and accept that the best experience of a game is through its easy mode. Because when it’s too hard, it can just drive you crazy.
When we start a new game, we always like to think that we are going to do it at the highest difficulty, just to be able to brag to our friends once the game is over. Except that sometimes the “easy” mode is actually pretty complicated, and the hard mode, let’s not even talk about it. Enough to reduce your gaming experience to nothing just to be able to play it for you a little later. Sometimes it’s better to be a little humble, and play the game in easy mode to get the experience to the fullest.. This is particularly the case for the games that we will discuss here.
Uncharted 4 is without a doubt a great game, but to get the most out of Naughty Dog’s graphics and adventure, all players are advised to do so in easy mode. Because in difficult, the enemy AI is a little too strong: a lot of life points, an almost psychic vision (sometimes they shoot you at you, you don’t know where) …
Street Fighter IV
Seeing Seth’s face is enough for Street Fighter IV players to have nightmares. The famous boss of the fourth installment of the fighting game saga is an incredible source of frustrations, especially for all players who have been able to test the game in hard mode. Finishing Street IV is necessarily going through Seth, and you might as well say that you will prefer to do it in easy mode.
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
While Skyrim and Oblivion aren’t particularly difficult, it’s completely different for Morrowind. If an important NPC dies, it can destroy your gaming experience. If you think you feel safe in a tavern, there’s nothing stopping a guy from attacking you for no reason. So undergo all that, but in addition in hard mode? Very little for us.
As much as Minecraft’s easy mode is perfect for taking your time, relaxing, enjoying a rewarding experience, its difficult mode is the exact opposite.. You can die from hunger, enemies are tougher, and most importantly, if you die, you have to start over. In short, if you want to enjoy the real Minecraft experience, don’t be too presumptuous from the start …
What’s terrible about F-Zero is that the easy mode is already pretty hardcore. AI is formidable, and reaching first place in every race can easily seem mission impossible. So imagine now in difficult! Suffice to say that F-Zero is one of those games that it is better to play by putting your ego aside.
