Difficulty of Games

January 6th, 2010

Gamers often ask the question what game they should play. I often respond that they should play a game that is challenging for them, but at the same time is not too hard. A challenging game means that while you are playing a game you have to use your abilities to the fullest. It means that you take advantage of your knowledge of the game, have quick reflexes, or plan a good strategy in order to win. On the other hand, a game that is too hard would be a game that even though you use all your abilities, you still keep losing the game. When you play sports like shuffleboard on shuffleboard tables this is not a problem because you face real players. The reason I do not recommend playing too hard games is that you might get discouraged and even annoyed because of the game, instead of being relaxed and having a sense of accomplishment. Generally speaking, people take pleasure from accomplishing something challenging. However, they do not like to lose, or to accomplish something that was very easy. This could also be applied to our daily life, not only computer games. That is why games that allow you to choose from different difficulty levels have potential to be the best, as you can choose a perfect difficulty for yourself. No wonder that many companies which produce games try to include at least two or three difficulty modes in their games. Of course, it is hard to include difficult modes for online games like World of Warcraft.
