    I would prefer if we had the hardest difficulty first, because I would've platinum'd Uncharted 2.
    The worst thing is I finally got to chapter 25 and it glitched so I couldn't beat the level. fml

    Personally I always thought that if you were going to offer a "hard" difficulty or something harder than hard. Like Infinity Climax in Bayonetta or Crushing ion Uncharted. That it should be offered from the get go. Uncharted always pisses me off, because I have to play it twice. And I'm sorry I was never googly-eyes in love with Uncharted in the first place. And replaying a platformer to me. Is a complete waste of time. But Bayonetta does take the top spot as. The most redundant and retarded difficulty non-stacking game of all time. Because with Uncharted you only have to play it twice. Bayonetta makes you play it once on normal to unlock hard then bet hard to unlock Infinity Climax. Which is just down right atrocious and cheap. By the time you get to I.C. you either are bored or already hate the game.

    This sums up how I feel about the whole subject. It all depends on how I feel, and the game I'm playing.

    I voted yes because if you want to get the plat in one go then great, but if you don't feel you are good enough for the hardest difficulty you can still play on an easier ones and then go for the hardest on the second playthrough.

    I voted yes, it could be worst where your given all difficulties at first but they do not stack and your forced to play the game 3 times like Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and Two Thrones.

    Some games u have to play on normal before hard like Killzone 2 and 3 and other games, but I like playing the game on hard first because it makes the story longer and trophy stacks

    I hate games that force multiple playthroughs upon you. I'm looking at you Uncharted series! I think all the difficulties should be unlocked from the start and the trophies should stack. However, I also think trophies have ruined the way we play games as well, but that's another topic.

    I prefer normal, if itīs fun I play again. If stats/items/upgrades carry over and itīs fun I play trice.
    Hand-bra Jeans

    The exposure of the female's soft body. Whether you like it or not, being naked to the waist and the mismatch between the hard and thick jeans. The true essence is the union of girly and boyish styles.At the same time, the hand-bra forces even the current girls that lack shameful feelings to make an embarrassing pose. Depending on how it is seen, it also shows a form of eroticism by making it look like the girls are rubbing their own breasts.

    The hardest setting should be available off the bat, and completing the game on that setting should unlock any lesser difficulty trophies. Nothing aggrieves me more than a game I beat on hard that doesn't give me the easy and medium trophies.

    I'd rather have the possibility to get difficulty trophies in one playthrough than have to have at minimum more than one. Makes the game more boring after a while :/

    Sure, doesn't bother me in any way, shape or form. I don't usually play on Hard, or anything above Normal. If it's supposed to be a hard game, I play on Easy, if a game is a little too easy, I bump it up to Normal. Basically, I would love this idea, doesn't bother me. So why shouldn't it be an option?

    I have no care one way or the other, but I voted "No." Mainly because I feel like the reason they do that is NOT to "force" [Not really a good choice of words, since no one is really forcing you to do anything - Trophies are purely a choice] multiple playthroughs, but rather, to give people a chance to play the game without getting stuck or frustrated and then, consequentially, hating the game because they can't beat it.

    That kind of formula has been used for ages, and no one ever complained about it.

    You essentially playthrough once, learn the game, and then, if you want, you go through again at a higher difficulty, and have a much more fun time doing so.

    Honestly, I always preferred one of the older ways of handling it - "Game B" - where you would beat the game on whatever difficulty was default, then, when you start up a new game, it's actually different - enemies are placed differently, items change, platforms and pits change, etc. It basically becomes a new game.

    Depends, I like games like Dead Space 2 and Ninja Gaiden Sigma that unlock new challenges for more replays, it's good value for kash.

    I can see how it would annoy you if you just wanted a certain trophy though.

    since im a trophy hunter...of course id vote yes. something to make my hunting easier? and possibly shave off another 5 to 20 hours of gameplay that i JUST did? yea why not. if your going to offer a harder difficulty at all, offer it at the beginning, simple as that. personally, i love games with just one setting of difficulty, the game can obviously get progressively harder at some points but, it just makes life easier for everyone really.

    i said no. i am not really a hunter or a whore for trophies but i do enjoy seeing an enemy go down in one hit or be able to clear a level with infinite health or powers.

    Sometimes yes but most of the time no. I think its easier the second time through since you already know what to do. In a game like Fallout, there are alot of unnecessary things you know you can can skip. It adds a bit of replay value too, and sometimes the impossible difficulty is just too hard and may cause you to judge the game differently.

    Yes, they should. I played through DS2 three times for the plat and would do it again, however.

    A lot of the people saying no, are saying the same thing. If they're not a trophy hunter, then they vote no.
    But by saying yes, their game won't be effected in any way. Just because the hardest difficulty is unlocked straight away, that doesn't stop you from choosing easy and playing it how you want to... It just enables more people to play it how they want to.
