Wondering which difficulties that forum users like to play their games (in games which have adjustable difficulties). You can only pick one option, so choose the option you think applies the most.

I usually use normal as easy stuff gets too easy

depends on the game, but normal

Same, usually normal or whatever the intended experience is, sometimes for some reason the "base" difficulty is hard (then there's whatever the fuck Valkyrie Profile's difficulty settings are).
On some games like Ace Combat I always go for the hardest difficulty because they offer the best experience.

hard mode

Usually hard mode. I feel like it enforces you to learn the mechanics of a game faster.
Trial and error sort of thing.

Definitely easy! I gotta get the hang of things, no matter how slow or boring it is. I mean, if it's that bad, I'll just adjust difficulty later on.

if its some sort of a rpg game with some battles
then i pick normal difficulty

but it depends either.

i always pick hard
hardcore or any other name of difficulty above hard just becomes tedious

althoughhhh in games like terraria where attack patterns change i just pick hardest on whatever mod it is/playthrough

i pick hard more often than i should with how it turns out, but it does make things more interesting

Normal is supposed to be what the devs intended. Difficulty modes in games are mostly trash since most games just give more health to enemies and call it hard mode, and then theres the games that in easy are a joke on normal they are also a joke and then in hard its impossible. Balancing games its hard so the best you can do as a dev imo is just have just one difficulty and maybe an assist mode

Yeah most game difficulty settings are just bad. Usually games with no settings tend to be more balanced and have good progression.
Some games have real differences between difficulty levels but when it's to the point of locking content behind a difficulty settings that's no good either.
