Too many old games had an almost Gygaxian desire to kill, and there have been quite a few discussions on how many old game designers used to brag that no one finished their games. I still can't believe anyone thought that was a good thing.

As for anyone who thinks it's got to be Super Meat Boy levels of sadomasicism for everyone or a game's too easy, you play on Instadeath while wearing no armor and using only one hand if you want, I've got other things to do and just want to enjoy myself when I play games.
