Spiderweb Games - Make Your Game Easy. Then Make It Easier.

Jeff Vogel has updated his blog. This time he talks about game difficulty. Here is a snippet from the blog:

I used to succinctly describe my views about game difficulty thus:

People will forgive a game for being too hard. They will never forgive it for being too easy.

No. This is, in fact, completely, 100% opposite from the truth. A better summary of reality would be:

People will happily forgive a game for being too easy, because it makes them feel badass. If a game is too hard, they will get angry, ragequit, hold a grudge, and never buy your games again.

I spotted this update over at Rampant Games. You can read Jay Barnson's opinion on the subject here.
