programmed by the same people who made the difficulty slider?
the difficulty slider is often rather esoteric since its not usual for the devs to be to in depth with what is actually effected by the difficulty levels.

most of the time i find its somewhat of a gamble anyhow as if there's only 3 difficulty levels i'm hesitant to choose normal as it will most likely be somewhat easy and will shorten the 'virgin' gameplay experience. however if you are for sure planing on wanting to play the game again, then often playing on hard the first time makes for a great first playthrough but subsequent less challenging and motivating follow ups unless you take steps like player 'gimping' to limit skills to a certain type of role playing build, rather than a multifaceted one.

but for me i find myself choosing hard anyhow unless its a game i know will be merciless and grinding, as its rare for me to replay through a game, at least not until a much later date if at all.
