    Are games getting easier?

      Do you think that games for newer consoles are getting easier than they used to be on older retro consoles?

      How much easier do you think they are getting or do you still find them as challenging as you did with older consoles?

      I don't think the games are getting easier. It might seem they're getting easier because some people have been playing video games for a long time. If anything they should be getting harder because video gaming as evolved so much from pixelated games to 3D...

      It depends. I think the difficulty in old games that people are having nostalgia fits over can be traced to either fake difficulty or technical limitations (see Ghosts and Goblins).

      Though some people are also complaining about hand holding in recent games. While some aspects of hand holding aren't necessary, some aspects make the games more enjoyable.

      For example: I play a lot of RPGs and while I do love the old classics and still play them, I enjoy that the newer ones actually tell you where to go on the map instead of the old ones that basically require a walkthrough since the game doesn't tell you where to go after completing a dungeon.

      Not all but a lot are of there is simply no challenge to them. Nintendo seems to abandon their old hard ways.
