Why shouldn’t there be a super-duper-easy-peasy mode for everything? No-one is gonna force YOU to play it like that if you don’t want to! Continue to be as hardcore as you like! I just don’t understand the resistance at all What we’re talking about is simply having more options for gamers You’re adding something that would make games more accessible and fun for loads of new fans and you’re not taking ANYTHING away from existing fans Like…do you…not want more people to enjoy these games?? Do you really hate the idea of other people having fun so much that you’ll rile against it even when it literally has no effect on you or your experience whatsoever?? Are you honestly that selfish?? I am *horrifically* bad at gaming but it’s a genre that I’m intensely interested in and very desperately want to be more immersed in I would HAPPILY buy so many more games if combat was a skippable option Not to mention one of the best indie games out right now is pretty much telling you if you want the best ending don’t fight Yeah I hate the elitist mentality that only those ~*~*hardcore*~*~ enough should be allowed to enjoy video games I mean gaming should be an experience to be had and not just an obstacle to clear right?Then again my poor mental health situation and chronic pain+mobility issues on my right hand means that my gaming options are severely limited nowadays So I’m all about making gaming accessible for everyone in the first placeAnyone who thinks gaming will be ruined by making it more accessible need to realize that they have already ruined gaming for many Anyone who thinks gaming will be ruined by making it more accessible need to realize that they have already ruined gaming for many I’ve had to stop playing certain games because all the button mashing aggravated my carpal tunnel pain and I rage quit some because they had a super frustrating part that I could never get past Games should be fun not a test of endurance At least they should let you skip the difficult parts you are unable to do They can still have a hardcore mode for people who enjoy a challenge They would still get to brag about their accomplishments without preventing others from enjoying an otherwise fun game Unpopular opinion but just watch the game on youtube then? Why spend money when you don’t get the full experience? Meme
