    I know this isn't a trophy compattiable game buy Ninja Gaiden for the Xbox seemed ALOT easier than everybody said.

    i dont know about anyone else but i found hardcore mode in dead space 2 to be fairly easy, especially once i had the peace of mind acquired from making that first save and knowing i wouldnt have to watch that opening sequence anymore

    I have that same issue, mainly with fighting games, FPS, and some platforming games (like LBP).

    And this is why all those platinum difficulty threads are a joke. When I vote I try to say what I thought it was and what the average person would think it is.

    I love seeing things like Resistance 3-Very Easy. Really? Very Easy to me is something a 6 year old could pick up and legitimately platinum (megamind or Hannah Montana). Easy should be for things that if you are familiar with gaming you shouldn't have any problem getting the platinum etc.

    Another one that bugs me is when people mark Very Easy or Easy just because they had a guide. Assassin's Creed 2 is not Very Easy. It is only that way because you used a walkthrough. Take away that walkthrough and then try finding all 100 feathers on your own and it all of a sudden becomes Moderate.

    That's how I feel as well. When people rate games like Uncharted 1 Very Easy, with 60 treasures and Crushing. . 2 playthroughs and collectibles in a long game is not Very Easy.

    Along the same sort of lines (not at all, but shut up ) is reviewers that give moderate games 7+. After watching a shit ton of Angry Joe videos, I like his scale. Very rarely does a game get 10/10, and 5/10 is average.

    Just think people over/under scoring games quality or difficulty wise is stupid.

    I have fallen to the trap of the difficulty threads. I see a game voted easy and it ends up being moderate or more. I have used guides and videos and still end up struggling on parts. A lot of times i like to try on my own before using a guide or youtube.

    Same here - I found Crysis to be fairly easy overall, but the final boss was a NIGHTMARE - I actually lost count of how many times it killed me in one hit before I finally beat it by sheer luck.

    I always seem to have trouble with the combat challenges in Arkham Asylum - can never do well enough to earn 3 medals in any map...

    Haven't really struggeled with something that's considered 'easy', but I did run into little to no problems during WaW's Veteran campaign, Killzone 2's Elite campaign and the Combat Challenges in Arkham Asulym.

    To open up the conversation. What game have you struggled witht hat wasn't suppose to be to hard?
    What game did you find easier that was suppose to be hard?
    Honestly I fall into the second category the most, I usually hear games are hard at certain parts but it doesn't take me long to adapt & defeat. I can't recall anything at the moment that's suppose to be easy but gave me a challenge although in general for any game it's highly possible that I get stuck trying something so simple for a second but I myself know it's easy to do.. well.. I've had those moments.. you know like the little things. Like a simple own the spot on Skate 3 etc.

    I'll say Uncharted. A lot of people I see have the platinum in Uncharted yet I really struggle with Crushing. I don't think anyone finds it really easy to do but I see a lot of people with the platinum in atleast one of them games yet currently I still don't have platinum for any of them

    People say Yakuza 3 is easy but the only thing I find easy is failing at certain mini-games. I figure people says a certain game is easy because that mastered that series.

    One game that I thought was going to be easy or at least moderate was Tomb Raider Anniversary but that was harder than I thought with some of those time trials but crappy controls in that game did make it harder..

    I agree with op for game that was supposed to be somewhat of a challenge with Mass Effect 2 insanity mode but it just wasn't hard except for a couple parts an even then still not hard.

    Mirror's Edge plat wasn't as hard as everyone made out, you just had to learn the maps but 100% is 9/10 I would say.

    Protoype, I've heard is super easy.. lol I thought it was difficult 6.5/10
    A few challenges were tough and hard mode, the last 2 bosses were a bitch to beat especially if you didn't unlock the right upgrades ...and don't forget them collectibles

    The Platinum difficulty threads, I do post in there sometimes and see people have lied, some don't even have the plat :stare:

    I think if you want to know about a game you should ask the people you know, who also have the same plats as you should help. Somebody who is on your level I mean, if that makes sense?

    The plat for Mirror's Edge is definitely hard but getting the 100% is where the real hardcore difficulty is. Those DLC time trails are punishing...

    Where to begin............

    Killzone 2 i found a breeze, dying once on the train level with the tank and a few times with Radec on Elite but then took ages to get all the ribbons such as Turret Specialist online -.-

    Uncharted i struggled to complete on Hard for most of the game and died so many times on the final boss battle but on Crushing i found it a breeze

    WipEout HD was weird in that what i found easy or hard on easy difficulty flipped over when i did it on Elite, so races where i found alot harder but time trials were a piece of piss

    Call of Duty WaW had no problems apart from the 2nd Russian mission and completed the final mission dying only once

    I get the feeling its alot down to what Mayus said where people rate Platinum difficulties really oddly and therefore you go into the game expecting one thing and get another and it throws you off and as you lose confidence and get frustrated that your failing at an "easy" game, you get progressively worse at it.
    On the flipside if its a really "hard" game you go in expecting the worse and taking the urmost precaution when you literally anything. But thats just my take on the matter

    There are games that are just plain hard however, like NGS2. That game is hard no matter how good you are at playing games...

    The plat was not easy... but not as difficult as some people I know said, there were 2 speedruns that were tough and some of the trials took a lot longer to get 3 stars than others. I didn't like the dlc maps, they were too confusing but very challenging!
