He wants Easy Mode. Face it, most people want an easy mode.
>>458640242I know you're baiting but just for anyone who doesn't want to watch the video he doesn't actually say that
>>458640242But he literally says he doesn't want it and doesn't care.
imagine caring about what he has to say
>>458640242https://youtu.be/AqUkH9bJi_EHe already got BTFO
>Jim spends an entire portion of the video basically saying it doesn't matter how he words it, people will just say he wants an easy mode though he doesn't care>OP says he wants an Easy ModeJesus can you be any more predictable?
>>458641421Fuck off cuck
>>458640242he's a literal cuck with a negro child
>>458640242The whole point of the video is the discussion is literally retarded, which it is. Jimmy Neutron is based.
>>458640242If it's single player, I don't give a fuck, as long as there is a strong indicator which mode is the intended experience.
He never said thatHe said he is okay if you mod an easy mode into your gameStop being a little baiting faggot
>>458640838>for anyone who doesn't want to watch the videoSo everyone. Who the fuck actually wants to watch Jim?
>>458642039People who want to know exactly how much of a faggot OP is
>>458640242No I don't. Because I'm not fat with a fucked up brain.
>>458642039I like listening to his retarded voice
The truth behind all these stupid articles and this stupid discussion is that game journalists just want to be able to complete games faster and easier for their reviews. Why can't they just come and admit this? Why do they pretend like they're fighting for some noble cause when it's just them being lazy?
>>458641232All the hardest stuff in Sekiro is optional anyways. Fromsoft trolled players into torturing themselves because they have too much pride to use firecrackers or unequip the demon bell. It's pretty funny.
>>458640242He's also a cuck with a disgusting fucking pigbeast wife. And he won't stop advertising his garbage on /v/.
>>458642039I think Jim himself is posting this in order to get views.
>>458640242>watches video"I don't even want an easy mode... I'm not asking or demanding for an easy mode in Dark Souls"
>>458642278No the truth is game journalists are incredibly bad at games, and give no shits about the industry at all.
>>458641948So he wants an easy mode in the game, okay.>B-bb-but he said >>458641421!Just because he acknowledged it doesn't mean it suddenly isn't true.
>>458641421>he doesn't care>he cares so little he made a half hour video about itRight, he doesn't want one and the git gud faggots don't either, problem solved, end of discussion, no more whiny news articles about it please.
There is no reason to listen to somebody this fat
Post actual kino responses to the easy mode debacle to BTFO Sterling.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0_nirxROLY
>>458642383Seeing as>>458642413>>458642185>>458642115Are all from IP's which already posted in the thread, wouldn't surprise me.
>>458642424If you actually freak the fuck out about someone modding a game to be easier you are actually on the level of a Kotaku Op Ed writer
>>458641346>tfw I never go to RedditI hope they stop coming here too
>>458640242>man who complains that Steam is bad for allowing bad games on it campaigns for good games to be dumbed down
>>458640838So did he change his stance or something, because he made it completely obvious that he does want easy modes for "accessibility" when Cuphead came out.
>>458642556>"Harmful Opinions">Flaming skull avatar
>>458642606Yeah cuz I entered the thread, saw the video, and said "ha! I like his dumbass voice"
>>458640242Why is it that gaming personalities are always shit at the games they play?
>>458640242It's not a hard game, but it's hard for Dark Souls players who are refusing to change their mentality
>>458641047>8 year old: wow darth vader is so cool and badass and evil and I like red lighsabers>REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE fuckin fascist, it really says a lot about societyliberals are just the worst.
>>458640242There's nothing inherently wrong with creating an experience everyone can enjoyFrom a business perspective it makes sense
>>458640242Asking for a game to take away the intended emotion of failure from games like this is like watching movies on your phone,sure its convenient but you're missing the fucking point.
>>458642660Does he look like someone who can keep his thoughts organized? He's a mess.
>>458642708Not an argument
>>458640242Watched the video, first half it's making generalizations towards people aganist easy modes by taking cherrypicked examples, second half is him saying that it's ok for sekiro to not have and easy mode but it's also fine for people cheating to win the game,makes some weird ass comparisons with speedrunners using cheesy tactics to win the game or modders adding stuff as if easy mode detractors are aganist that too.He also bashes capitalism and EA because he can't live without calling them out like a vegan who needs to tell to everyone about his life choises.Tl;dr: generalizations and attacks to capitalism like any classic trenchbloat video.
Caring about the opinion of a Manwhale numale whiteknight manchild who makes feminist videos defending womenhttps://youtu.be/lxyGKgTKYUM
>>458642868On that, I think we can all agree
>>458642660He said he doesn't give a shit if From puts an easy mode in there game or not, and likes it the way it is. He also says he doesn't give a shit if people mod their game to make it easier since it doesn't affect him in anyway.Congrats, now you don't have to watch a twenty minute video
>>458640242I swear the solution to “Easy mode” is literally a cheat menuDon’t waste time crafting an easy modeKeep normal mode and just give the player infinite health stamina and money Boom low skilled faggots, speed runners and “journalists” can all play
Literally two games come out with any semblance of challenge and people clamor for more easy games. It's just as bad as guys saying they're tired of women led movies after maybe three become box office hits.
>>458642708Unironically not an argument.
>>458642479>>he cares so little he made a half hour video about itHe's allowed to talk about how retarded this discussion is from both sides.
>>458640418some fat fuck
just play a different game nigga just walk away
The only people whose opinions on easy mode that matter are FromSoft themselves, I hope they make an official statement saying it's not happening so all these entitled children can cry themselves to sleep.
>>458642773Because they're "gaming personalities" not actual pro players, their main draw is their charisma not their playing ability and while there are exceptions who really know their shit and are "popular" like pannenkoek most people that really kick ass in video games have too much autism to really have any "star power", their videos would just be cringefests or straight up boring, see also: the speedrunning community. That or they're actually busy getting good at video games which can be really time consuming depending on the genre/game you want to git gud at.
>>458640242>Face it, most people want an easy mode.Most people are also dumb savages, so that means nothing
>>458642946This is kind of my mindset, really. If devs don't want to put in an easy mode, I think that's fine. Journalists making it about respect and ableism is bullshit -- a dev should be able to make a game that appeals to a niche without being shat on for not making it accessible to a wider audience. They knew what they build and the trade-off is lower sales. That's fine. That said, if From opted to include an Easy Mode, I don't really care either. I think that again, if they opted to make the game more widely accessible, that's fine too. Cheating in single player games shouldn't even be a discussion. Who gives two shits? Have fun, enjoy your game however you want so long as it doesn't negatively impact someone else's experience.
Not sure what they expect and easy mode to even be? Slower reacting enemies? I mean you can already one hit kill most base enemies and bosses are just a matter of figuring out how to get kill moves
>>458640242Fuck "most people". Game was created for certain audience, not for all. If you dont like it dont buy it.
>>458640242He's an unbearable faggot and most people are wrong.
>>458642946He's pretty much saying nothing at all then.Am I remembering wrong or did he used to say something along the lines of people being entitled to experience everything in the game if they buy it?
>>458643146Shit, nobody said he couldn't. Go ahead, beat the fuck out of the mound of bruised flesh and broken bones that was once a dead horse, but it was a stupid discussion to begin with that only diverted from actual discussion about sekiro. It really deserved better.
>>458640242Let's be real here for a second and forget the shitposting.There isn't that much "game" to Sekiro once you put in an easy mode, even the ng+ really sucks once you know how the bosses work
>>458640242guy has been pushing easy mode explicitly since he played kirby's epic yarn if not soonerdunno why anybody listens to this guy or takes him seriously
>>458640242The only thing Sekiro needs as an easy mode is to just get rid of any sort of monetary loss for dying. Or even just get rid of the dragonrot thing. And cut down load times since Idols are already placed extremely close to bosses. It's all psychological.
Jim is a fat faggot who nobody pays attention to except shitposters who think he's the Armond White of vidya e-celebs.Objectively, the best compromise to the whole situation is to bring back cheat codes. Put in a cheat code, and whatever you do just doesn't count towards your showans/trophies. They could lock you in an offline mode too so you can't bring them into that.
From what I have heard from other people is that you have to dedicate alot of time to learning and mastering the mechanics. But some people don't want to do that so they use the easy mode card and spin it and say shit like "disabled people get locked out of the game" due to its so called "difficult" When the real problem is accesabillity due to controllers and in game settings not being tailored to those with physical and maby even mental handicaps.
I would like it if the games for the next few years, if they do have an easy mode, to rename it to "journalist difficulty mode"
They should make Easy Mode a monetized feature. I want to see how much money they can milk out of it
Playing NG+ without Kuros Charm and Bell Demon and I just beat Genichiro, Robert’s dad, Centipede Giraffes, and Snake Eyes. Git gud.
>>458640242The game starts in easy mode, then when it feels you have mastered or at least know well the mechanics of the game, it gives you the chance to man up and ring the bell to put the game on normal mode or go on on easy mode. Did you ring the bell anon?
>>458641860Haha, seriously? And he can't even complete Sekiro because it's too hard for him? What a pathetic piece of shit.
>>458642787I can't believe disney is still selling Nazi memorabilia
>>458640242>most people>already sold 2MWell you and your casul friends can go fucking die. Once.
>>458641047"nerd culture" was a mistake these fags forget Star Wars is for children
>>458641232Neverknowsbest is slowing becoming relevant and I'm all behind it
>it's fine if they don't add an easy mode>it's fine if they do, I wouldn't use it>HE WANTS AN EASY MODE
>>458640242jim is a faggot though
Did you all watch the video, hear the points he said you were gonna take from it to paint him as a casual, and then post those exact points to try to seem victorious?
>>458645758I guarantee they didn't watchthe video
>>458640242He wants because he does not want to be seen as "ableism"This "subject" is no longer a matter of whether players actually want or not since that point where journalists has been turning the problem into a matter of political correctness
>>458645904You'd be right if he said he wanted an easy mode
>>458640242>literally says SEKIRO DOESNT NEED AN EASY MODE a minute inthe fuck are you smoking.
>>458640242Then add an easy mode. Who cares. Being a story mode for a video game isn't some right of passage. You can't put it on your resume. Who fuck cares who gets to play and beat what game? This site is terrible.
>>458644424Ringing the bell is hard mode dumbass.
>>458640838>he watches the fat fuck
>>458643604No. In fact, he has a video of him in full French aristocrat costume (Commentocracy) mocking people who demand for easy mode in Dark Souls and Bloodborne.
>>458642419>always play games on the easiest settings>never improve nor develop any kind of gaming sense for genres>"WTF why is this game so hard, this is bullshit!"Quite the conundrum.
>>458646081well then what did he actually sayI do not want to waste my time by bothering to watch some shitty youtuber's video and make some money for him
>>458640242Now you know why trannies exist, then soon don't.
>>458646446He said it's a waste of time to argue about it because it's the devs choice not ours. A game neither needs nor doesn't need an easy mode.
I'm not watching 27 minutes of bullshit, what's the quick rundown?
>>458646252>dude why do people care about art lmaoGo get your ass eaten somewhere else anon
>>458645179It's funny, he was in a thread a few months ago when he only had 20 subscribers. He asked what he can improve on and I just said make shorter videos since before this his videos were over 1 hour long. It seems to have really helped.
>>458646645He loves the taste of cock.
>>458642946He obviously cares or else he wouldn't made a 30 monute video
>>458646645He thinks it's dumb to tell people how to play games they bought and to tell devs how they should use their time
>>458646846He cares about good games
>>458646615If he thinks it's a waste of time to talk about it (except we know he thinks an easy mode should be always included) then why make a 30 minute video on the subject.
>>458646615basedI will give his video my thumbs up
>>458640242This game ain't aimed to most people.
>>458647040I highly doubt that
>>458641421Blow your brains out, Jim.
How can one fat fag make /v/ so assblasted?
>>458647042Because that's literally his whole channel. Talking about the industry and discussions within. You really think he'd waste an opportunity to feel superior to internet essay makers AND flex on journalists?
>>458646357Bell+No kuro's charm is hard mode.
>>458642556>8 minutes videoyeah right
>>458643442Infinite res, autoparries...
>>458640242Having multiple difficulty options in a game pretty much always fucks with the balance, unless the "easy mode" is just god mode and the "hard mode" just puts additional limitations on the player (no health increases etc.)
>>458640242He's so obsessed with easy mode all he does is going after the dicks of other fat guys in his offtime.
>>458647135Why do you doubt it? He always talks about how much he loves the souls series, he said sekiro isn't for him, but it's still an amazing game, and he was praising DMC 5. The strawmen in your head are constructs to make you people feel like you're a victim
Did we just get BTFO?
>>458648124>motor issuesWhat does this mean? Are the ligaments and muscles in his hands damaged?
>>458640242Sorry Jimbo, 1 lost click for your boring yet annoying show with your boring points coupled with annoying voice. Shouldn't you be sucking off a nigger instead of posting on a forum that ranges from dislike to hates you?
if you listen to and take jim sterling seriously then you're probably a fat retarded cuck just like him
>>458648124Customize the controls.
>>458648124>story basedThe game is supposed to be challenging by design, miyazaki himself says this, if there is no challenge, if you don't overcome using the game mechanics as they are there is literally no point for it.
>>458648124Sounds like the only one BTFO'd was that poor man by God himself.
>>4586481241. How are your standards so low that the plot of any videogame is what draws you to the medium?2. If you were an actual real person who both exists and actually likes to go on youtube to watch playthroughs but hates the talking, you would have discovered the keyword "longplay" many years ago.
>>458648124>ableismThere it is, disregarded entirely.
>>458648124if this RETARD cant play them then he should just watch lets plays on youtube
>>458648587but something that you consider easy might be hard for himwhy deny him the pleasure of the game
>>458648124Jim doesn't seem to understand that a lot of the important aspects of the game are conveyed through the difficulty and challenge.Likewise, the developers aren't perfect - the difficulty of the bosses don't scale linearly. You can't just add or decrease health, damage and attacks to make the experience "the same" for differently skilled players. From Software isn't that skilled, and maybe it's just not possible for anyone to do that every time.Sekiro is the penultimate example of this - despite being far more story driven, the game is much worse without its difficulty. It has neat set pieces and design, but you're missing most of the game when experiencing those - so why not just experience them through video instead?
>dark souls comes out with easy mode>all casuals just easy mode through it>never gains world wide reputation as an insanely hard but fair and fun game>never gets insanely popular>never gets any sequelsdeuuuurrrrrr HOW DOES EASY MODE AFFECT YOU?????????? shut the fuck up you short sighted retards
>>458642787the empire are literally fascists, this isn't a "FUCKING LIBERALS DURRRR" discussion
>>458648702>why deny him the pleasure of the gameThe pleasure of the game is the difficulty.
>>458640242>Blatant liesFuck off, watch the video before you shitpost about it
>>458642039I like Jim. Cry about it
>>458648702I am not denying anything to him, I am denying him the possibility that his whining might ruin the game for me since if they start adding bullshit like that they will have to fundamentally change the core design of the game, that is how it is.The game isn't for them, that is all there is to it.
>>458642556Zoomer trogs on this site don't know how to differentiate good videos from bad ones, as evidenced by the replies to your post. Don't bother.
Imagine being competent at videogames when its your career.This odious turd always dresses up as a fat fucking woman to distract from his inability to be competent. Same with cuphead He defended incompetence. Fuck him
I think the best compromise is to just add cheats again. They're fun for skilled players to fuck around with sometimes too, especially after having cleared most of the content already, and in singleplayer games they harm nobody.
>>458642278I have 2 ideas.1. They can demonize people who have an actual passion for games by baiting them onto getting angry when they are changing their hobby.2. Like women, they intentionally cause trouble for attention. They know it gets clicks to their websites to make controversial statements.
>>458642556>Calling journalists "bloggers"Lemme guess, this is some lamerhate dweeboid?
>>458643645>As soon as Jim talks about it it's now a "dead horse" that we need to move on from.Hmm didn't here that sentiment when it was all over /v/. Now that someone has articulated a proper rebuttal to /v/'s pissing and moaning, suddenly no one wants to have a discussion
Why doesn't he just play easy games? There's an endless pile of them. How entitled.
>>458648974Then most people would end up breaking and cheating making the challenging aspect of the game meaningless.
>>458648806Cuckpilled and nigger
>>458640242I am stunned at how many people watch this fat faggot
>>458640242You did the exact thing he said you would do. Good job
>>458643693That's effectively what that one guy did, and /v/ couldn't help but chimp out over it
>>458640242Make easy mode a micro transaction. If people want it they can pay extra for it.
>>458647042Why did /v/ waste weeks and dozens of threads talking about it?
>>458649149The semantics are actually a really big deal in this case. Everyone knows you didn't really beat a game if you "cheated" at it. Just like everything else people cheat, like tests. But playing on easy still sounds like you went through the same game.If I were a game dev, I'd include a "Cheats" menu, but no lower difficulties.
>>458649089>calling bloggers "journalists"Journalism has largely died out and been replaced by blogging. Kill yourself, millennial.
>>458649367They probably didn't previously claim it was a waste of time to do so, because that would make them look like obese, narcissistic idiots.
>>458649410>But playing on easy still sounds like you went through the same gameNo it doesn't.
>>458649545To everyone but /v/irgins it does.
>>458649520I wish they did. Maybe the the threads would have died off faster
Reminder that this guy identifies as genderfluid (while not being a teenage white girl and having an excuse) and has stated he and his wife are in a "non-monogamous relationship"pic relatedI think together they make up the weight of 7 normal adults
>>458648753but it would still be hard for him, just doableI'm sorry but you are in the wrong
Why are people even against an easy mode, how does that affect you?
>>458640242Sekiro is a horror game that relies on its difficulty to scare and intimidate, a lower difficulty would get rid of most of the game's charm. It's like playing Amnesia and picking an easy mode that just gets rid of the monster so you just walk around.Sekiro does have difficulty settings, just not ones you pick in a traditional way. It starts in its normal difficulty, and there's options in-game to make it harder.Difficulty options have proven to ruin games that could otherwise be excellent. Just look at Nier: Automata, where you can choose to either breeze through the game and wonder why you aren't watching a movie instead, or pick "lol 1shot" mode and play every section gajillions of times.Counter any of the above 3 arguments, easymodefags. Spoiler: you can't. /thread etc
>>458644381>40$ easy mode DLCwould be interesting
>>458649924>Why are people even against an easy mode, how does that affect you?Because get fucked shitter
>>458649924 Because if a dev puts on easy mode it should be because they want to, not because someone wrote an article "not having an easy mode is problematic"
>>458648124Then he shouldn't buy challenging games
>>458649924because the developer didnt want one and they shouldnt put one in because crybabby "journalist" faggots and rebbitors cant git gud
>>458649924Because an easy mode would affect the way they design the game you piece of trash.
>>458649924Slippery slope is only a fallacy because some kike kept getting called out on his bullshit and told all his friends to spread that it is.Don't pander to people that don't even play video games.
>>458640242Why do some people gain satisfaction from nothing? >>458641047>who likes fascism?Everybody these days, both the left and right.
>>458640242>"I don't even WANT an easy mode, [...] I'm not asking for, or demanding an easy mode in dark souls because I wouldn't use an easy mode in dark souls">"I don't just respect Sekiro for its lack ofan easy mode, I'm IMPRESSED by it's boldness. [...] What Sekiro's don't is ADMIRABLE.">REEEEE HE WANTS AN EASY MODE
>>458646446He doesn't get any money for his Jimquisition videos though, as he doesn't run any ads on them, and the whole thing is funded through Patreon.
>>458648124I am not sure, why did he arbitrarily decide soulsborne is not a competitive game? You are clearly able to be getting good at single play game, bro.
>>458649924Zero sum gain.Money spent of balancing, tinkering the stats and testing easy mode is money that could be spent elsewhere, improving the core game.
>>458648717So you're saying that if a game comes out with an easy mode it won't get a wide reputation as a hard game thus won't get popular and won't get any sequels.Makes sense
>>458649924Because people don't want a game to lose value by caving into an easy mode? Sekiro isn't supposed to be an easy game, the world isn't supposed to be cuddly. The game would lose thematic value if there was an easy way out. It's like asking writers to write their books at a toddler level for people who suck at the language.
>>458642787Darth Vader is arguably not even a facist, he's a tragic figure, especially if you take the EU shit into account. The Emperor can fuck of though but at least he is funny.
>>458650187>>458650214>>458650326>>458650330>>458650359>Acting like an elitist for a game you can easily abuse or just grind yourself to become stronger.
>>458650367What's the context of this image?
>>458650156Why would you be against an easy mode for Amnesia that removes the monster? It doesn't affect people who don't pick it. and some grandma playing it might have a heart attack and die. Are you literally anti-grandma? Everyone grows old and everyone should have a chance to play every game.
>>458642946He doesn't give a shit, yet makes a lengthy video about it.
>>458642278>The truth behind all these stupid articles and this stupid discussion is that game journalists just want to be able to complete games faster and easier for their reviews.I think there's a little more to it this time. Journalists might be using "accessibility" to cover up the fact that women have zero interest in this game.
>>458648124So...after all, "Jim" (is OP guy, right?) thinks sekiro needs easy mode? I am confusing.
>>458650776He makes a video every monday covering some recent topic for his show.
>>458650774I think every game should ship with a no-enemy mode for people who are averse to confrontation. It's the same game, except without the fighting. Just ignore it if you don't like it. And if anyone doesn't like it, it's because they're elitist and hate player freedom.
>>458641346Isn't incel an ableist slur in and of itself? Why can't modern liberals stop acting like the bigots they're always fighting with?
>>458648124That's a random reddit poster, not Jim, you fucking idiot.
>he's so fat even his hat is wearing a corsetfuck James Stanton. when does he ever not have shit opinions? just when he's bandwagonning?
If games have an easy mode, you should be actively insulted for playing it. You don't get the normal ending, enemies mock you constantly, you don't have access to anything advanced or requiring skill. Make them suffer for taking ashortcut.
>>458642278Because, being Westerners, they don't understand video games.
>>458644381THIS. If casuals love having "options" then they'll pay for them.
>>458651117I never said it was jim
>>458640242he also wants videogames to be political and left leaning so I don't see what his point is
>>458651131Well, for From Software stuff specifically, you're already taking the rather big punishment of missing the point of the game.
>>458642424he literally said 'people will say I want an easy mode and ignore everything else I say in this video'way to prove him right
>>458650776>"I realise there's a measure of irony in me emphasizing how little I care about the debate while doing a twenty minute video that shows I do care on some level, and I do care on some level; I don't care for easy modes in games, I don't much care for the cyclical discussion about difficulty in games."
>>458650597I don't care if gets an easy mode, I just think the choice shouldn't be made FOR the designers and devs, instead of BY the designers and devs
>>458651242By cropping the username, you made people think it is.
>>458651131Imagine being THIS petty
I fucking hate cripples so much
>>458650883No. The OP made a bait thread to punk people who didn't watch the video. The video is literally about how it doesn't need an easy mode
The design philosophy behind Sekiro, Bloodborne, and the Souls games is an old one that relies on players learning from their mistakes so they are better prepared to handle new mechanics and tougher challenges later on. Adding easy modes would not only break these games and deprive less-skilled players the satisfaction of overcoming a challenge, but also damage the industry as a whole.Imagine if every developer was required to spend time, money, and manpower destroying their initial visions by making sure their latest releases were so easy that even a toddler could play them. Casuals would be so spoiled from "beating" these games that they'll expect the next one to be even easier and, if it's not, complain endlessly unless the developers pacify them with a patch. It wouldn't be long before homogenization caused even remotely challenging games to go extinct.Video games are just as accessible as any other form of media. The only things keeping casuals from playing are their defeatist attitudes, self-imposed inexperience, and lame excuses. Harder games having a "barrier of entry" is a myth perpetuated by those that have no faith in themselves and people who insist "gatekeeping" is a major problem fail to understand that others telling them to "git gud" aren't necessarily doing it out of spite.If there's one thing predictable reactions to games like this prove, it's that there are genuinely entitled "gamers" out there who simply can't stand being left out. Everything can't appeal to everyone. The hours these people have spent begging for easy modes online could've been used to practice whichever part of the game was giving them so much trouble OR look for a new game to play instead. With the sheer number of shallow narrative-centric slogs to choose from these days, casuals have more options than ever before.No one should seriously expect to beat every game they buy simply because they picked up the controller. If you aren't dying, the devs ain't trying.
>>458649367To laugh at the dumb niggers who actually argue for it.
>>458649812He never identified himself as gender fluid, he described himself as pansexual
>>458648678Especially given the fact that these sorts of people are coincidentally among the most ableist themselves, see >>458651059
>>458648124>"then don't play it, it's not for you :^)"
>>458640242IS that so hard to believe that not every game si supposed to appeal to every single person that has ever lived?I dislike souls games but i dont see why they should add an easier mode. the entire game was built around that difficulty setting and making things easier will just hinder the experience.Just accept that some games and genres aren't for you and move on.
Casuals should be purged from all communities and accessibility ruins mediums. Once the vast majority of people in your community have very little actual knowledge of said community, your community has already sied.
>>458641047And he's a literal cuck with a leather fetish. Hes a fucking repulsive brainlet
>>458651531Sure, you keep telling yourself that. Whatever helps you sleep at night
>>458651558>money=sexare you retarded?
>>458648124>Can't beat dark soulHold a shield and you're invicible, and a guy beat it with a guitar.Gate's stay closed cripple.
>>458646846the point of the video was to try pass the mindset of you should not give a fuck how other people play their videogames if it doesnt affect you
>>458647218every fat fuck who makes a video gets people in /v/ riled up
>>458648124I've seen a guy that had no arms or legs playing games like Diablo 3 only using his mouth and "blinking" his eyes.I'm pretty sure even with his "motor issues" he could beat the game with the right tools and enough training.
>>458641047Ironic coming from a faggot who LARPs as a Nazi
>>458640418some fat fuck in drag
>>458640242fuck off jim you fat loser moviebob twin cuck, stop posting here, nobody likes your shit anywhere especially not here.and "most people" don't want shit, you're shit, accept that you're fucking shit instead of trying to obfuscate it constantly
>>458643691Dragonrot does nothingNobody can die from itAll it does is make them cough so you cant hear their diologue
>>458640242Jim Sterling needs to face a shotgun barrel
>>458648124Get out and fucking stay out, why do you want to partake in a medium you are physically unable to? It’s like a blind person demanding all movies be stripped of visuals. Either get a controller that caters to you or fuck off and play something else, you are not entitled to experience every piece of media.
>>458640242Now Jim Sterling opinion counts?
>>458648124>Story based>Story comes almost entirely from reading item descriptions Ninja Gaiden on NES was more story based than Dark Souls.
>>458648124>I just want a letsplay without an annoying voicethey're called long plays
>>458652082That's a bad analogy, movies aren't made accessible by removing the visuals for everyone, they add optional audio description tracks for blind folks.
>>458651751>it's okay to betray your principles with logical loopholesYou're one of those "privilege + power" types, aren't you.
>>458640242Wow nice breasts grandma
>>458640242Reminder that this dude is a literal cuck
>>458648747>they're talking about the empire
>>458640242>sjw shit with BF5>don't like it don't buy it incel nazis people want this (:>okay>btfo Bf5 sales>sekiro comes out>REEE WE NEED AN EASY MODE>don't like it don't buy it >game sells amazingly, most people praise it's straight forward yet difficult designWhy are journos always wrong?
>>458652409That made me laugh out loud, have a (you)
>>458651751>money=sexNo but they aren't opposites either, so why treat them like such?
>>458647218They have no arguments against what he says so they chimp out like a bunch of apes
>>458642929damn she looks young
>>458652310Nobody pretends those descriptive tracks are at all analogous. That really is comparible to easy mode, the wholly inferior experience because you cannot interact with the actual one.
>>458649149Just make cheats disable achievements
>>458652538Dude, they don't even listen to what he says, they just assume what he said.
>>458652560Achievements are worthless and we’d still have subhuman casuals claiming to be part of the community.
>>458652559Yeah? So. Let blind people have their descriptive tracks, let retards have their easy mode. As long as it's optional, who cares if someone else ruins the game for themselves?
>>458652531sex isn't a ressource that you can collectit's a sacred act between two people who love one anotheryou can't force someone to do it
Add a disability mode but only let players who submit some evidence access it. Win-win.
>Who cares an easy mode wont ruin the game
>>458642708the term "harmful opinions" accurately describes the thoughtcrime prosecution prevalent in western countries today. sorry if it invades your comfy little world
>>458652751I do, because the community gets worse with these hangers on that literally cannot comprehend the media they claim to be devoted to. The gate’s fucking closed, go away to something that suits your ability and taste where you can be a valuable contributor.
>>458650626He jizzed on himself to send a message somehow.
>>458652892You can still read/play the original instead.
>>458652842That's retarded, would only massively increase the cost of adding an easy mode and would likely be illegal anyway.
>>458641047>tfw 8yo me used to love sith and clones a lot more than faggi jedkeksThey were the coolest niggas, I loved that shit as a kid
>>458644381That's how microtransactions came into being.
>>458652892So does this book keep you from reading the original play or something?
>>458652779>sex isn't a ressource that you can collect>it's a sacred act between two people who love one another>you can't force someone to do it
>>458652310Ok all movies now require a sign language person in the bottom corner of the screen for deaf people.Enjoy retard
>>458653123It wouldn't be illegal. If that were the truth then handicap stickers would be too.
>>458652779>it's a sacred act between two people who love one anotherThat hasnt been true for about 50 years
>>458652842They should also be forced to wear a badge that says "I played Sekiro on easy mode" in public so the whole world can know the dirty crimes they committed
>>458653251Are you unaware that subtitles exist?
>>458652779Which the opposite of how it is to the roasties who call people "incel", that's the point.We're not talking about Christians here.
>>458643604He says that what a developer chooses to do with their game is nobody's concern, and nor is what somebody does with their end-user game experience. He says that taking a stance either way on whether games should or should not make their difficulties modifiable is idiotic and not worth arguing over.
>>458653370That hasn't been true EVER
>>458653402Just make them wear one of these
>>458652954Difference is blind/deaf people are are a barely existent minority of filmgoers while shitty casuals who need Easy modes to beat Japanese video games are the majority of the medium's overall audience, at least in the West.
Do people even still watch this faggot?
>>458640242Or they could just learn how to play the god damn game as it was meant to be played?
>>458653352You really think a government thing like handicap stickers and a private organization demanding personal info from people are the same as far as legality goes?
>>458648974No, that would cheapen the effort of those who went through the effort of conquering hard games with their own willpower. Not every piece of art is intended for everyone. You don't rewrite moby dick or gravity's rainbow just because they're too dense for some people to get through.
>>458653480“Just ignore it”has been the war cry of the winning side since time immemorial.
>>458653535>wearing the mark of the people who created video gamesSounds awesome, desu.
>>458648124I wonder what crippled nigga-kun (uploaded a video beating old monk) has to say to this crippled nigger
Just tell these faggots to vote with their wallets. If you are shit at games, don't buy hard gamesFUCKING SIMPLE
>>458649714Go discuss games with "everyone" instead of hanging around with "/v/irgins" then, you disgusting normalfag.
>>458653936But people do exactly that with classic literature all the time.
>>458648702There's no pleasure to be had without overcoming the challenge. The appeal of the game IS in obtaining mastery of the systems. This is the dirty secret of these faggots. If you gave them what they wanted, they still wouldn't have any fun.
>>458653936How does that cheapen the effort? One guy beats it with cheats, the other beats it properly, this doesn't make them equal in any sense.
>>458654062what's the difference between nigga and nigger?
>>458640242Go play a different game if you don't want to follow Sekiro's rules.
>>458654064They can’t win if they don’t try to force it as a moral issu. Rigteousness is a mindworm, after all.
>>458654165Those are different pieces of art.>>458654257Just watch this. I predict you won't, but hope you will.https://youtu.be/X0_nirxROLY?t=160
>>458653935They don't have to give it to them. Oh, and personal info like CC details?
>>458640242Easy mode would just open the door to lazy players and lazy devs and we should never open that door. You know, just like what happen when the door to welfare was open back in the early 1900s. Now most of the citizens are lazy and dependent on the government and all the colors wanting to get to America for the gibsmedats.
>>458654257Because now you have faggots in your community that know nothing yet claim they are your equal.
>>458641346>surely your 2 millions game sold would be a lot better if there was [an easy mode]By that logic it'd sell a hell of a lot better if it copied CoD and became a FPS. Why aren't niches allowed? Actually, why do you feel the need to find niches and destroy everything the current fanbase likes about them?
>>458654901I hate how people pretend there isn't a social aspect to single player games. In every other medium, sure, but people somehow convince themselves that video games are played in a vacuum.
>>458655512how are games different than any other medium
>>458655512Normals have never respected vidya, hence the easy mode whining.
>>458640242I just don't get why this is news to any of you. He wants to play an easy mode he can beat in a few hours and make a short shitty review of and act like he beat the game legit. Who cares? Stop paying attention to bad reviewers if this is an issue.
>>458655512I just don't get why some faggots saying they beat the game even they actually did it on easy mode/with cheats changes your experience. There are less skilled annoying faggots in every game community already anyway.
>>458655791They aren't. That's my point.
>>458654049What? They did?
>>458652779>it's a sacred act between two people who love one anotherhttps://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/prostitute
>>458640242Jim is contrarian for the sake of being contrarian. He claims the most polarizing opinion simply to get clicks.
Who listen to these people? Every days people just keep getting dumb and dumber. Why do people let a video telling what to do. Cant these half asses think for themselves.
>>458640242He says he doesn't want the easy mode but doesn't really care much if it was added. How fucking retarded can you be?
>>458657135You underestimate normalfags.
Bring back cheat codes and make everyone happy
>>458640242he's not fat enough to be "most people"
>>458655884Why do you lie
>>458657202How is that retarded? You don't have to take a strong stance on every issue out there. I agree in that I think devs should do what they want for their games, they want an easy mode, let them add it and shut up about it, they don't add one, let them be and shut up about it.
>>458646615>He said it's a waste of time to argue about it because it's the devs choice not ours.That really depends on how he said that. I can see journos turning on the devs with a "bring back power to the players" narrative. Gamers rise up to demand easy mode.>You don't actually get to choose what you play, it's the devs choice to put in what they want. We need a democratic solution so the majority of players can enjoy the majority of games
>>458644381If I was a developer I'd do this just to ass blast all the "gaming" journalists.
>>458657437He's calling OP retarded because OP is clearly misrepresenting the video.
>>458657715Oh, I see. I am the retard.
>>458640242He never said he did.
>>458657486Considering even most normies seem to view video games journalists with at least some contempt, I pray to god that wouldn't work.
>>458657797Such is life on 4channel
>>458641047I thought he was at least capable of separating fiction from reality. He seemed like he was capable of it in some of the videos I watched where he was talking about video game violence.
>>458654368One word has a at the end and the other has er.
>>458642854Not if it alienates your original fanbase most casuals don't play hard core games but with an easy mode it will possibly attract more casuals the casuals become the new majority and then the normal of the next game becomes as easy as the easy mode in the previous game and that's what we don't want casual players need to say to there games and hardcore say to there games
>>458642854Focusing on business over fun is how you become the western AAA market.Fuck games as a service and fuck casual modes.
>>458640242>buy ninja gaiden 2 as a kid.>probably like $50-60 in 90s money>no easy mode, never beat it, never cried about itWhy are people so soft now?
>>458640242>fat tranny wants an easy modeIn other news, the sun is hot.
>>458640242No, he doesn't. Did you even watch the video retard.. or, you just had to be first to post something, cause you're a sad fuck.
>>458658146The question being asked by the official Star Wars account specifically says "if you were in the Star Wars universe".
>>458640242He's a commie faggot manchild that can't be competent in games...
>>458658684It's the same "people" who cry about sexism in games, AKA people who don't actually play them but just have a huge hate boner for the gaming industry.Notice how the 'reason' why we need easy modes always changes every couple of years, its because in reality there is no good reason, people just want to bitch at gamers like usual.
>>458649353No micro transactions in a non F2P game is cancer won't support a game that does this
>>458642854>From a business perspective it makes senseYou carve out a loyal customer base then decide to fuck them over in a gamble to get a larger playerbase that has a notorious turnover rate and you need to spend a fuckton on marketing just to remind them you exist. Not worth it.
>>458659324I haven't been paying attention to this argument, what were the reasons before accessibility?
>Sekiro exposing all the shitters that summoned in every Souls gameLoving every laugh.
>>458645230It's almost like /v/'s a bunch of retards who've decided that he's "pushing for easy mode" regardless of what he actually says.
>>458656147I don;t get why people saying they read the greats when they only perused it on spark notes aren't a good portion of the literature community. I don't get why people who just watched snippets of the film on youtube aren't beloved by the film enthusiast community.
>>458647042Because of shrieking fuckheads like you.
>>458659435Gatekeeping. Basically, it was a polite way to say "women can't play these games, so you better dumb them down!"
>>458659435https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqUkH9bJi_EThis guy literally archives the history of arguments, "But the disabled though" is just the most successful one they've come up with.
How is it so hard to just put down the fucking controller and take a break? Tackle the game when you're in a better mood. Learn from your mistakes instead of hitting your head against the wall. But no, instead we live in the era of instant gratification in our video games, where you just need to turn down the difficulty setting when you're challenged. I wonder if people would complain about Sekiro less if everything you did gave an XP indicator to please the smoothbrains.
>>458659453I'm surprised by the amount of people that actually had summons the entire game. Part of the charm was the lone journey, no outside info, just you and your wits. They really don't get what those games are about and have no place in this hobby.
>>458648124>lost interest and just watched a lets playThis dude obviously doesn't even fucking like the games, why does he feel like he has to play them?Not to mention the video of the quadriplegic being able to beat a late game boss proves this guy is a fucking retard.
>>458659631>just ignore it bro, let our shrieking fuckheads be the only ones
>trans women are women>representation in games is extremely importantWhy would I watch this literal retard?
>>458659435Gatekeeping was the most popular one.
>>458651920This, is he fucking retarded? Is he gonna go on a rant about fat manbabies complaining on YouTube next?
>>458643331You dont have to be a pro, you just have to not be shit at video games. Do you watch these people because you're similarly bad at games or what?
>>458640242Only faggots. DaS II was harder than Sekiro and doesn't need it.
>>458646446Essentially "devs shouldn't be forced to include an easy mode, but neither would having the **OPTION** to play on easy mode harm the experience, contrary to what the elitist gate-keeping fuckheads claim.
>>458659718>>458659880Isn't that basically the same thing as they're saying now, they've just changed from "You're gatekeeping women" to "You're gatekeeping disabled folks"?
>>458649089unless you have a jornalism degree you are not a jornalist anon
>>458641047Empire is objectively the smart man choice tho
>>458659479Fuck off Jim
>>458659520Neither of these are actual debates like the whole easy mode thing though.
>>458646446>Opening your stupid mouth when you haven't even watched the video you're arguing againstAre you fucking retarded?
>>458660024Yes. Welcome to 2019.
>>458640242Is the game really good? Because I'm willing to put in the effort to learn another autistic gameplay style but not for budget b team dorksoulsSo is it really good or are you try hard memeing it because normies can't play it?
>>458660140Yes, which baffles me. The casuals need to be ousted from every community.
>>458660024Yes because they are running out of tricks, notice none of the people complaining about gate-keeping handicapped people are actually handicapped themselves.
>all popular video games should be made for me, if they aren't made for me then the developers should obviously change their game so it is aimed at me! How dare they make something not for me!Holy fucking shit I just fucking hate Amerifats and britcucks
>>458660376Just like the video
>>458651242>never said it was jim>jim.jpgNo more (you)s from me, LIAR.
>>458650367What the fuck is happening here?
>>458660367Are you referring to Jim, or the people in this thread? Asking because that's not what Jim said.
>>458641232>CoD WaW veteran difficultyHoly shit, thanks for reminding me, faggot.
>>458660249Both. Despite all of the bitching done by journalists for the last few weeks, they still gave it high scores.>>458660461He jizzed on his face over an indie game featuring playable cocks, I think.
>>458660441Ooh, that sure showed that Reddit soiboy tumblrina libtard cuck!
>>458640242How course a fat fuck would want an easy mod, every fat fuck wants an easy mode or else they wouldnt be fat fucks
Do journalists operate in a hivemind like vermin?
>>458660597I'm talking about the people who want easy modo in Sekiro.Jim is still a fucking retard with horrible opinions even if he managed to figure that Sekiro just isn't for him. Him having a slight bit of common sense doesn't make him not a retard.
>>458660691Nice buzzwords cry baby
>>458660724Unironically yes, they are all connected with one another and share the same terrible opinions to aid them in forcing narratives.
What's the point of beating a game that's supposed to be challenging on easy mode?It's like going to one of those restaurants that offers one of those giant steak challenges and demanding credit for eating a typical 8oz steak
cmon /v/the idea of having an easy mode but youre restricted from seeing the true ending is such an good conceptwhy arent you for it?
>>458660943Casuals legitimately bring nothing to the communities they claim to be a part of. They don't bring unique perspectives, they don't bring good discussion, they don't bring expertise, they're just there taking up space and enabling the downfall of said media.
He doesn't want an easy mode you fucking retards. Stop believing everything you read on the internet. Not liking the fat fuck is not an excuse to be intellectually dishonest or ignorant.
>>458640242If the game has an easy mode it does, if it doesn't it doesn't. Why can't people just accept that fact?If the developer of the game wanted the game to have a option to be played like that, it would be in the game but it obviously isn't.Why can't people just admit that they aren't so good at games, it's not even something to be embarrassed about. It's just a game.A developer shouldn't bend for a small minority of shit "gamers" wheres the satisfaction on playing a intentionally hard game on easy mode? Don't people want the joy of beating something they have been working hard on? Or is it more of a status quo thing? Do people really wanna beat a game that badly? That they would need a easy mode or even cheat? Why not just work harder and get better? Sure you could beat the game by cheating, that's whatever you beat the game but you aren't excused of ridicule if you make it public, people are still gonna call you a scrub. So what do people truly want?
>>458652510>the fictional bad guys in my childrens film are LITERALLY FASCISTS GUYS!!!!!!!
Guess he can't dress up as a nazi for his skits anymore
>>458661038>Expecting intellectual honestly from /v/
>>458660998I thought it was going to say he was miserable playing on the hardest difficulty, but apparently normal mode is too hard for these fucks
>>458660998I can't imagine what it would be like to be bullied by a difficulty selection screen. They seem to realize it's a joke but they still let it get to them. This person would be a good fit for a cult, you could probably get them to do anything.
>>458661038>He doesn't want an easy mode you fucking retards.Then why make the video? And why are you defending him?
>>458648747We've literally never seen imperial gubernatorial doctrine. They look more like a fucking dictatorship, we have no idea what kind of state they run beyond having a big evil wrinkly guy as a singular ruler.
>>458640242Aren't most of these talking heads just riding the wave of clicks generated by complaining for an easy mode? Do any of them actually want this? I doubt it.
>>458640242>most people want an easy modeLiterally not. Most want it to not have an easy mode.
>>458640418A fat from Britain
>>458661447They definitely do, they've tried to push this narrative for every hard game for a fucking decade.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqUkH9bJi_EAn easy mode makes their jobs easier and their social structure more mobile.
>>458661067I think it has to do with the 'consumer' mindset. You buy a game, therefore it has to please you in all manners you want, and if not, then how dare they not add an option for me after I brought it!Honestly this is just the way things are gonna be until the next big hobby thing comes up and normies move over. I wish someone big in the industry would just stand up for all this bullshit but no company man would ever allow that to happen.
>>458660352Because most people don't get all weird about the idea of someone else enjoying media differently than they do.
Who else should I follow for the latest industry news?
>>458661603Yes, they do. Are you kidding? Nobody respects a cliffnoter's opinion on a fucking novel they like.
>>458640242What if we just took a step back and let the player decide what difficulty to play on line literally every decent game made since the 90s? Label the intended experience as such and the easy baby mode for the mentally handicapped as such? Or while I'm wishing add in the difficulty multipliers with no cap like some older games had and some indie games have. 1000x difficulty for real men and 0.1x for the flipper babies.
>>458661447They are serious because like>>458661598 said they see this as a job not a hobby.The obvious response is just to pick another job then but most of these people lack the credentials to do anything else because "gaming journalism" is a fucking joke of a job.
>>458661826Why does it matter what other people think about a book you like in the first place? They can't stop you from reading it or take away your enjoyment of it.
>>458661976>on lineon like **Maybe I'm the retarded flipper baby
>>458661976What if instead we step back and let players play the games they want to and not play the games they don't want to. People have no self control, and the majority would play on the shit mode for babies.
>>458640242maybe he should start a petition
>>4586499241. Suffering is part of the experience2. Gatekeeping is unironically a good thing and keeps faggots out
>>458660367Hey jims not british the yanks can have himhe'sA)FATB)LIVES IN BURGER LANDHe's just a late settler on the colony of america just as american as any other burger with british ancestory aka he's not one of us anymore
>>458650774>Why would you be against a mode for a game that removes important things from the game?
Don't care deal with it shitters.
>>458662034>take away your enjoyment of it.Peer pressure is really well documented anon
>>458662115So? A bunch of other people play the baby mode. How does this stop you from playing the intended experience?
>>458662034No, but it ruins your community and dilutes the group of people you can have a meaty conversation with. Also, by the nature of it being easier to be a casual than experienced, they will outnumber you in time and whatever community you had will become theirs. When most of a community's members have very little knowledge of said community or media the community is centered around, the community is effectively dead.
>>458641346Jim is a faggot
>>458662190If some retard that didn't even read the book saying he doesn't like it means you enjoy the book less, you're a weak minded idiot.
>>458662115>and the majority would play on the shit mode for babies.Let them. It's a fucking single player game why do you care?
>>458662257Because the casuals are going to be the vast majority of the community around said game and that's fucking awful, casuals ruin everything. And then, when the devs see their market is all casuals, the next game will be even worse, and then MORE casuals will flood in.
>>458653039>>458653227the problem is that idiots will prefer this watered-down and quite frankly insulting version because it appeals to their walnut-sized brains."why would I read the superior and intellectually stimulating version when I can read this one? it's got emojis lol I love emojis xD #GenZPride #LGBTQ+ #FuckDrumpf"
>>458662351>you're a weak minded idiot.Well I am here, aren't I?
>>458662295Yeah, but the sort of retard that wants to play Sekiro on easy mode isn't going to stick around in the community, he's gonna play it while it's the big flavor of the month, then move on to the next flavor of the month.
>>458662371Because games have communities and those communities are what decide future games and game discussion?
>>458662474Game communities are a fragile and fleeting thing, and them being fuckawful for the entirety of the game's relevance just ensures the community dies faster.
>>458656852I can't help but feel the uncropped image is far more interesting. Sauce?

>>458657135all games should have an easy mode is just one of those things that sounds good to anyone who doesn't think about it.
>>458662496You don't honestly believe that do you? I shouldn't even need to remind you of what came of fallout 4, fallout 76, and anthem, for low hanging fruit. I don't remember literally anyone, even retards, asking for that.
>>458640242"Most people" have zero passion for video games but want to be part of the scene because it's a popular thing and it gives them the opportunity to make money from shit videos on youtube and twitch. In other words, they can fuck off up and down from the tip of my cock.
I like how Jim just BTFO all the Soulsfags (I can't even call the Fromfags because they are too young to remember pre-Souls FromSoft) with this video and we are seeing the ripples of hurtbutt ITT.
>>458652779>you can't force someone to do itDefine "can't"
>>458662405So? Idiots will be idiots. Nothing would change that even if an "emoji version" of Romeo and Juliet exists. Also, fuck off with your Shakespeare is intellectually stimulating bullshit.
>>458662776Fallout 4 and 76 were successes entirely on the backs of Fallout and Bethesda's massive casual community who will eat branded shit.
>>458648124Here you go bro, now git gud.
>>458661367You could also just watch the video. He says he doesn't care, and that he's made the same video before (but from the opposite perspective) a number of years ago when StarFox Zero launched with an easy mode where you literally can't die. He goes on to say that the easy mode where you literally can't die didn't make the game any better, it's still shit, and if they removed that easy mode, the game would still be shit.From there, he states that whether game has an easy mode or not is irrelevant, because as a gamer you should buy the games you enjoy and play the games you enjoy, in whatever way you enjoy.He brings up examples of people modding Dark Souls games in the past to modify the starter classes to have better starting gear and stats, and that even if someone used something like that it's their decision and it's fine because it didn't affect his playthrough, so he doesn't care that someone "cheated" their way through a Dark Souls.Likewise, he also compares the arguments against "game director vision" to speedrunners happily using OoB glitches to skip intended boss fights and sequence breaking the game, yet other gamers celebrate their exploits, despite it obviously bypassing the "director intended vision" of the game. So he also says here that the "director's vision" is irrelevant too.All in all, he says he's tired of this trite shit discussion. Easy mode or not doesn't fucking matter. If you want to hack in an "easy" mode or use cheats, who cares, because that's your $60, not his, and he doesn't give a shit. And even games that suggest lowering the difficulty if you die a lot (DmC5) he says to fuck right off because he'll do it the proper way instead.He's also aware that people will misquote him because he's centrist in this discussion on whether to never have easy modes or always have easy modes as belonging to one camp or another, as if this shit was partisan politics.

I dont want casuals to play video games at allThey have ruined far to many games already, Games have been getting progressively easier for a decade now in an attempt to "reach a wider audience" any time I hear those words I know the game will be worse than the previous installmentcasuals are also the reason we have microtransactions in so many gamesFUCK CASUALS IF THEY CANT PLAY ITS A GOOD THING
>>458662909If you force someone to have sex, it's rape, not sex.
>>458649924It's like bowling. You can make the lane shorter and use only 1 pin that you in fact kick with your shoe because scoring a strike like that feels fantastic...But you will not be a bowling player. Ever. Same goes with Sekiro. You can finish it in an easy mode but you will not be a Sekiro player.
>>458657667They'd just score your game low for "Making the default difficulty unfairly difficult, while dangling a fruit in front of you which is a more reasonable run through the game, at an added cost."
Just realized an easy mode would have ruined the good armored core games and now I take back everything.
>>458663181Only games for storyfags need difficulty settings because "I play video games for the atmosphere and the narrative" is a super normie thing to say.
>>458640242>dude I am so hardcore I finished Dark Souls>I actually summoned for every encounter, but don't tellAnother one exposed
>>458662257Because dev time has to go to making the baby mode work.Is 25% less damage taken good for a baby mode? idk we need to test it and see.Testing takes time, time that is now absent from creating the intended experience.You people seem to think there is some magic button that just implements all this shit with one click, or that devs just sit around for a couple months before releasing the game.I'm sorry to tell you this but neither of those are true, there is no magic button and the weeks leading up to the release of a game are almost always done bug testing, bugs that if left in could directly change the experience for players.
>>458640242I don't really care if it had an easy mode or not, Sekiro was kind meh to me and I won't play through it again anywayThough I still can't really understand the mentality behind wanting something the developer never intended to make. It just isn't a game for you if you don't like it
>>458663336>I play video games for the atmosphere and the narrative"I read books for the font and texture of the paper."
>>458662975>those big fucking buttonsImagine binding a special move to them.
>>458648124Why are disabled people such fucking narcissistic, self absorbed cunts? It's not about them. It literally has nothing to do with them or "ableism" (not a real word).They clearly do not understand Miyazakis games, because an easy mode would ruin the design.

>>458641047The empire brought stability to the Galaxy far better than the republic did. I'm all for space facism
He doesn't want an easy mode, he wants you to stop being so fucking retarded and worrying about how other people enjoy things
>>458663556The whole point is so you can smack them if you have poor motor function, so precise aiming just isn't a thing you can do. It's a really neat controller but it's expensive as fuck for enough parts to have a full set, but all accessibility devices tend to be expensive as fuck because they can't get the cost down though wide market appeal.
>>458662981>he doesn't care that someone "cheated" their way through a Dark Soul>he also says here that the "director's vision" is irrelevant tooI appreciate you taking the time to type up a summary, but these two points are so similar to the ones people heavily in favor of easy modes have been parroting for weeks that I can't help but feel like he just made a passive-aggressive version of their arguments for others to use.
Most people are not the developer. The developer decides who he makes the game for, not fat crying fucks.
Difficulty settings shouldn't exist period. There shouldn't be a hard mode, nor should there be an easy mode. Give me the game as you want it to be presented, and nothing else. For an ARPG like Dark Souls, the range in difficulty comes from your starting class and your personal adaptability to it. The varying playstyles are a more personal difficulty slider (I found lances easier to use than swords, but that might not be the case for you), in a much more subtle, palatable way that doesn't make you feel like you're belittling yourself to picking a different difficulty setting.
>>458663805Yes, I get that, that doesn't make me not want to have a STOMP TO KILL button.
Most people are knuckle-dragging, window-licking mouthbreathers.
>>458663879Too bad you get to eat shit and start over when you realize the class you picked is the hardest in the game halfway through with that system
>>458663879I agree with you on some level but some games need difficulties. Games like Xcom or Civilization would be boring without difficulties because it's the intended way to learn the game. You play Xcom on an easier difficulty and learn the game then on future playthroughs and you can kick it up and use ironman mode to make it more difficult. You say they should "Give me the game as you want it to be presented" but the way they want it to be presented might be playing multiple playthroughs, rounds or games and upping the difficulty as you get better.
>>458663901It uses a really standardised input type for the devices, so you could get something like a pedal used by a stenographer and use it as an input. That way you could give it a proper stomp without breaking the button.
>>458663901Foot pedals exist anon, and they're really cheap. Follow your dreams.
>Easy mode never ruined a game!
>>458664050Or you could get good and work with what you chose.
>>458663821In all, he's suggesting that if you paid $60, and if you really want to enjoy the game, you can look up cheats or easy-mode-mods and it wouldn't bother him.Additionally, he also doesn't feel the onus of making an easy mode should be on devs because that takes time out of their work to make the game. So if it has an easy mode, cool. If it doesn't cool. He was going to play the hard mode, regardless, so its inclusion or exclusion never bothers him, nor does anyone else's opinion on how they wanted to play the game.It's possible, as you said, that his intention was to make a passive-aggressive version of the pro-easy-mode discussion, but tone is a big part of the video, and if you want to waste 30 minutes of your life, you can watch the video yourself to make your own judgment on that matter.But we all know watching 30 minutes of a fat e-celeb doesn't make our lives better, but I went ahead and took the fall and tries to compress the points into one post for the others here.Up to you if you're inclined to watch it. (I've basically regurgitated it here already, so I'd say just save yourself 30 minutes of your day.)
>>458642708skull avatar > anime avatar >>>>> furry avatar
>>458664215Souring the experience and turning the game into tedious garbage in the process, when the fun option was literally right beside the option you chose. Good design.
>>458664050>Too bad you brought a guitar when you don't know how to play itYeah it's really the concerts fault you brought in an instrument you couldn't properly use.
>>458664050Can't relate myself, if I get bored or stuck in Dark Souls I would just make a new character. For my first run of DS3 I was going back and forth between my pyromancer and my knight. And I don't think either was my actual first character created.
>>458648124No, there's a video of some dude who probably has less motor function than this retard beating Corrupted Monk. Fuck, there's that pro Street Fighter player that plays with his fucking face. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tso8u4OJLuIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1MYSgy4QMwThese faggots literally have no excuse. If you have enough function to play a game, you can get good at it.
It's fucking hilarious how this whole discussion has managed to skirt around the answer to the question it originally brought up because it's so simple to answer and doesn't allow games journos to publish a bunch of nothing articles basically exclaiming "I suck" to the community. And it especially wouldn't allow them to use disable fat black dyke retards on Twitter as a shield from any criticism. The question was originally "does Sekiro need an easy mode?" to which it is easily answered with "no". Sekiro is as FromSoftware intended it to be, they have a specific vision for the player experience and it's up to them how it can deviate. The dev is not compelled to deliver an experience as dictated by you and your abilities. It is their product and it is your choice as a consumer whether to buy in or not. It is up to you to accept the rules of the game and play.So they shifted the narrative to accessibility and how there's so many people out there who just can't play such a high demanding game so therefore FromSoft should make it easier. Their proof? The Celeste dev detailed how it could have an assist mode. Again, the issue with this argument is FromSoftware is in no way compelled to do so, so you know....who cares what that Celestefag thinks. They also conflate accessibility with difficulty. Sekiro has a plethora of accessbility options (key/button remapping, controller support, subtitles, color correction etc).So what's the fucking point of their argument? They just want to feel good about themselves without having to justify it with any merit. Imagine one of these fags crying foul because Arrogant Bastard Ale tastes bad and they prefer Miller Lite so therefore they think Stone Brewery should make Arrogant taste like Miller. It's such a dumb fucking argument that it deserves an equally as dumb food analogy.
>>458642556>just choose not to use things that make it easierbut don't hardfags complain that those things shouldn't even be there, and that having the option is too much?
>>458664481>souringSounds like it was a poorly designed game in the first place if it's flat out unfun to use an option the game gave to you. Why would an easy mode make that different, do you just want to be able to eat garbage more effectively?
>>458664279>I've basically regurgitated it here already, so I'd say just save yourself 30 minutes of your day.I appreciate it and I mean that unironically.
>>458662975I unironically think these are a great thing and should actually shut down any arguments that games need to be made for disabled people. That's stupid, specialized hardware should be made for disabled people with a few rare exceptions and even those exceptions should be software made to alter other programs use like the windows color blind mode.
>>458648124>storybased the motor skills problems probably come from his brain

>>458665539Same difference in their world.
>>458662159>implying he's as "American" as all of "our" other gun-grabbing libcucks.
Honestly I just hate casuals. They're obnoxious and stupid, they ask the same fucking questions over and over and ignore any real points and repeat their own incorrect points about how it doesn't affect you.I mean yeah you could explain that difficulty is important to the identity and story of some games or that it's an emergent part of gameplay and that lowering it isn't trivial. Or that making easy modes takes devtime. Or that easy modes incentivise games that are easy to make easy modes for. But there's no point, they're just going to insist that it doesn't affect you despite all evidence to the contrary.So yeah, fuck casuals
>>458660998Ironic given how cucked the sequel ended up being on every other narrative front.
>>458640242oh, yh thats nice, but people who are disable can beat this game so it really doesn't need a easy mode
>>458640242>tfw used to like this niggerlover
>he said a few weeks ago that he gave up on Sekiro because it's too hard>mfw now begging for an easy modeOnly people that want easy mode are journalists. I seen people with actual physical disabilities beat the game, so they can't use that as an excuse.They only want an easy mode so that they don't get left behind in the discussion, because doing so would make them lose money and free ad clicks
>>458641047Why yes I do prefer the Empire. How could you tell?

>>458660998>It's funny on the surface, but it's peer pressure. Don't listen to it.No, please for the love of god, listen to it. Only babies play on easy mode, it's totally true. When I was a kid, I played the original game and being the scared little shit that I was and slow reaction having. I played on easy mode. When I stopped being so scared, I stopped playing on that difficulty and went up because playing on easy wasn't fun, at all.As you develop, you obviously should need more stimulation and thus be inclined to play the harder difficulties. This coddling is making a bunch of slow learners. My Nephew is almost eight years old, still has to be told to go to the bathroom and can't even beat the first world of Super Mario Bros 3, while whining that "It's HARD" Bullshit. I completed that game at his age, I was playing Wolfenstein at his age. Why the hell are we regressing? Why are puzzles getting simpler, even in games which tout that they are a puzzle game and thus shouldn't shy away from having some out of the box shit? Stop whinging and work on improving yourself.

>>458653937>“Just ignore it”Ignore what you brain damaged ape? He doesn't want developers compromising their "vision" by implementing an easy mode if they specifically design their game to be difficult. He also acknowledges that what people do with their own games is nobody's concern but their own, because apparently despite being a literal faggot who ejaculates into his own face he manages to be more mature than idiots like you constantly bitching about it.
