No one can agree on what difficulty actually is.
Forced grouping, grind, and time sinks aren't difficulty. They're just inconveniences.
It blows me away.... It's absolutely amazing how people think here, and ONLY HERE ON THIS SITE.
We argue what is difficulty ?.... No one can agree and it's true, people actually want a definition !!
Yet if I were to ask another gamer, fellow worker, someone on the street or a non gamer "what is video game difficulty" is it would always be the same, HOW HARD IS COMBAT and BEATING WHAT EVER YOUR FIGHTING. A natural response !..... But It's an argument here.
Worst yet !!!!!
"Inconveniences"....... Any challenge "even to the lowest degree" is considered a road block according TO MOST HERE.
People think I'm asking for maximum combat difficulty, simply because I ask for a challenge. People like to use the words "Forced grouping" to belittle a challenge. 1 in 20 here want any kind of difficulty, Most want zero resistance of any kind.
People pay good money for a game and want to go "A" directly to "Z".... It's madness.
Keeps all topics flowing I would guess, it's what keeps this site going. We can argue over the reason to own a household Vacuum Cleaner. Yet the the majority would argue against it.
In games like Black Desert Online..... Fashion dresses and fancy hats are popular in THE CASH SHOP. People actually spend unrealistic amounts for items such as this.
A child's play ground with a safety net around them is what people expect. The idea of fun had changed.... now it's looking nice
Every day I ask my self why am I here ?
What kind of gamers am I hanging around with here ?
It's like an human in a cage full of monkeys trying to make sense of it all. The monkeys in their monkey language are saying, this human does not like to scratch his own butt in public.
30 monkeys in their monkey world think scratching their butt in public is a universal popular past time, and the human is an odd ball.
I guess I like the challenge.
..... I got my standard LoL@mmolou
..... I got my standard WTF
Now I need a monkey scratching his own butt picture. Quest done.
