As usual, I'll be the weirdo with the dissenting opinion: I prefer hard games over easy games.  Even if a game's cheap and/or frustrating and makes me yell "fuck" at the television (this happens sometimes, lol), I gain more enjoyment out of conquering challenges than simply mashing the "attack" command over and over until my thumb falls off.

I do enjoy hard games, only if it involves skill.

Hard due to poor gameplay design or cheapness just sucks.

Also, I can't stand most games that make their final bosses just annoyingly difficult.

Most games I've dropped at the very end because I didn't feel like dealing with that BS. I have too many games to play.

The AI games seem to have pretty annoying final bosses, which goes against the grain of the main game, which have all been pretty easy up until the end.

Actually I didn't even really grind much in FFIV until the end with how stupidly powerful Zeromus is.


This bears repeating.  I didn't even know Rydia learned Meteo till 15+ years after the game was first released. :P

Challenging and cheap are not exactly the same thing, i prefer the first over the second any day.

I still have never beat the first Ratchet & Clank. I'm saved right in front of the final boss, have tried waaaaaayyy to many times, and have never beat him. I feel I still beat the game though because I got to the very end. I don't feel like going around for a few hours collecting bolts just to buy the ridiculously overpowerful one to beat it, just sounds like a waste of life.

That being said, I do enjoy hard games. I got great satisfaction out of beating DMC3 on the normal setting. Same with Ninja Gaiden.

I like hard games too. My tolerance for cheapness, however, seems to vary with each individual game. I didn't really mind the cheap deaths in the PS2 Shining games, but the cheap deaths in P3:Fes are irritating the shit out of me right now.

Or maybe the real problem is that I need to take a fucking break from P3. I'm completely burned out on it yet I can't stop playing it. :P

I prefer easy games, because I don't like to waste my time retrying a boss battle over and over again or grind like there's no tomorrow. There's a reason I love TotA; it felt fast paced because it wasn't cheap.
