    I usually go hard or the hardest depending on the game and how many times I want to play it

    Start on hard, if it's too much for me I usually go back to Medium. I've only had to do that once in the last year though, with MGS4

    the Medium level generally. I like to get through games but also have somewhat of a challenge.

    .

    Usually the medium/normal setting is best. I just want to get through the story and enjoy the gameplay. Usually normal isn't too easy or hard.

    easy/medium, depending on how much story it has so I can enjoy that instead of starting from the same check point 15 times. Then on hard with all the knowledge.

    normal/med or hard depending on the type of game, i tend to suck at fps on consoles so i go med on those :o if its a platformer, hard.

    btw, i hate how some games require you to unlock hard mode, the most recent example i remember is wolverine origins, i breezed through the game on normal, unlocked hard, by then i lost interest. probably would of enjoyed the game more on hard.

    Try MGS4 on The Boss Extreme, no kills/alerts/continues, using no health items. :bowdown:

    Shit is hard, but so fulfilling if you can manage to do it. I'm up to the motorcycle chase so far.

    I would be on my way to getting the Big Boss Emblem, except I've already exceeded the 5.5 hours. :sad2:

    Difficulty settings are starting to get annoying. If I'm not sure what I'm getting in to, I pick normal because I assume that's what the developers recommend. The only recent FPS I really had fun with on hard mode was Rainbow Six Vegas.

    usually one up from default, I like the challenge.


    anybody else hate when the increase in difficulty just lowers damage and raises enemy defenses :sad2:

    I also hate it when normal is too easy and hard is too hard.

    default, unless it's a game like inFamous that suggest difficulty and then I usually start on that. inFamous suggested I play on the hardest level.

    med-hard depending what type of game. most of the time i start at medium if i feel like beating again ill start at the hardest mode possible.

    like medium dead space to impossible

    or medium to extreme in mgs games.

    As hard as possible, and before I start I like to slice my fingertips up with paper cuts and splash chlorine in my eyes so that it is actually a challenge... :rolleyes:

    Medium...
