The Gamer’s Channel: Games Difficulty and the RPG World – Has Games Really Changed Through The Years
This topic has come as a result of a chat we had with each other in regard to video games and their difficulties. It sparked different theories like that the difficulty went down because of the concept of the Playstation where you can save your progress so the games are more mistake friendly. As you can make mistakes or lose lives and do not have to worry about starting all the way back at the beginning ( unless you forgot to save).
The Gamer’s Channel: Games Difficulty and the RPG World – Pre-Playstation vs. Post-Playstation
Think back in the Nintendo days where you usually playing a game that has like three lives and maybe some continues. You mission is usually to beat the game within a certain amount of lives and/or continues. The only way it is different if you had a code, password, and/or a game genie type device.
However after the development of the playstation and the memory card based system that succeeded after the playstation. You do not have to worry about having to start all the way over or continues because the save feature actually serve as an unlimited continue source.
So as you can see it is a viable argument to say that the save feature has lower the difficulty of some games but then there are games like RPGs. RPG’s are role playing games.
