Which Difficulty Setting Does the PSLS Staff Set to Play Games?
After talking to developers over the last month regarding their thoughts on difficulty settings in games, and what they intend, I had to ask the rest of the staff about their preferences. Which difficulty setting do they prefer? Do their preferences differ when it comes to reviewing a game? Do their preferences change depending on the franchise, goal in mind, etc.? Does anyone really care how we play games?
The answer to the last question is most likely a “no,” but I had to ask anyway. We are quite the diverse bunch in how we play games and how we review them. You all can probably guess which difficulty level some people play, especially those of us who love multiplayer shooters. I will say that no one fessed to playing on the easiest difficulty available, such as the one shown above from Wolfenstein: The New Order.
