On Dark Souls and Easy Modes by gingirlin games

[–]Robotocracy 3 points4 points ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

My only problem with giving Dark souls an easy mode is that giving games a literal easy/hard switch on a menu tends to feel kind of cheap and immersion-breaking to me. I much prefer when games work in difficulty options more naturally, and I think the Souls series does this pretty well already. For example, DSII has easier/harder starting classes, npc summons to help with boss fights, bonfire ascetics to make specific areas more difficult, NG+ and certain covenants to make the whole game harder, optional bosses, co-op multiplayer etc. I can see why someone would make the argument it's still too difficult though, I think it could definitely be possible to design a bit more help for newer players into the game. Like I pointed out, there's good evidence to suggest that the creators want the game to be accessible, so I think people that say that the game has to be super difficult are kind of missing the point.

Jim Sterling did a video on the subject where he argued more or less the same thing, if he's your cup of tea.

[CW: Abuse] I really hate people who excuse hitting children in anyway by acleverprofilenamein discussion

[–]Robotocracy 18 points19 points ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

I agree totally; I actually take strong issue with the word "spanking" being used in the context of child discipline. It's a euphemism design to obscure the truth that "spanking" is just violence by another name. And I can't stand people who make the argument "well I was spanked and I turned out fine" - no, obviously you didn't turn out fine if you think it's okay to hit children. You're not the only one, it really weirds me out (in a bad way) when I see people associated with sj try to defend hitting children, I don't know why that's a thing.
