Remember Super Mario 64, Spyro the Dragon, Pokemon Stadium, Final Fantasy X and Kingdom Hearts 1? They were difficult games.
Have you experienced a time when you ask yourself "Man, why are games getting easier now?"
Seriously, I've played Super Mario Galaxy and I was so bored. There was no challenge. Another example of this, is when I played Zelda: Ocarina of Time and I couldn't even get through the first part; the tree but I've completed Twilight Princess.
Kingdom Hearts 2 was much easier than Kingdom Hearts 1.
Spyro the Dragon was a difficult game but the same creators of that game, produced Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction was very easy and lasted 6 hours, in conjunction to 30 hours.
Even Harry Potter has become easier. The first one took 10 hours to complete it on the PS1 but Order of the Pheonix takes about 3 or 4.
Is it me or ever since 2006, the games have been incredibly easy?
There are a few exceptions such as Okami and Tales of Symphonia 2 but most game franchises have usually become alot easier for me to complete and finish.
