I agree with the author - as long as there is an easy path available, I will most likely choose it. That is one reason why I keep returning to Gothic 1/2 - it's hard, unforgiving, and you simply can't remove the high difficulty by clicking a button. It forces me to play well, and to make the right decisions, or I'll be reloading for ages.
Of course, as the author stated, this turns many players away from the game, leading to lower sales.
I personally prefer that approach though, because while I do love challenges, I'm not a fan of creating my own challenges just for the sake of it. Walking on my own two feet certainly is easy, and completely without challenge, but that doesn't mean I'll start walking on my hands just to push myself to the limit.
