Nintendo games have become too easy according to Nintendo Enthusiast

Recommended Posts

I may not be familiar with most Nintendo games releasing today, but I do feel that the newer games that I have played, tend to be a bit easier than the good old retro NES/SNES/N64 etc games. Nintendo Enthusiast wrote an article about how Nintendo games today are often too easy compared to how difficult games used to be. Do you agree? The last SMB game I played was Mario 3D Land on the 3DS, and honestly, it felt way easier than most Mario games. Alberit, there was some tough levels, but it just didn't feel up to the level of past Mario games and their difficulty.

I'd have to agree to some extent with this statement. I've noticed the dumbing down of the AI in the Smash Bros. games. For instance, on Smash Ultimate even on the highest difficulty, the opponents are still pretty easy to beat compared with the Smash Bros 64 and Melee for the Gamecube.

As sad as it is, it's a fact. Games are becoming easier and easier. It seems that if you want an actual challenge from Nintendo, you're almost forced to become a classic gamer. That's no issue for me, as I already AM a classic gamer. Don't get me wrong, I have games such as Skyrim and Witcher 3 on my Switch. But the games Nintendo deals out such as Mario and Zelda, are sadly simple. Once I got the hang of how BOTW worked, it was so simple I got bored with it REALLY quick. I haven't played it in a few months now. I got to Kakariko village, and thought "This is it? This is the game? This is boring as hell." If Nintendo would simply put out a game that is a challenge from the beginning, and forgo the bullshit training then I would be more interested in their games and stop looking through indie titles. I've been thinking that the most challenging game currently has to be Mario Maker 2. At least there you can create your own levels to make an actual challenge. Just check the new Cinemassacre video.

Anyone played any of the newer Pokemon games lately? I wonder how the difficulty has changed in those. Back in the day I remember defeating the gym leaders could be quite challenging and it would take hours and hours to train your Pokemon until they were strong enough. Although that was quite time-consuming, the satisfaction of completing the challenge made it all worth it.

I think when a dev puts out a franchise that turns out successful (Elder Scrolls, GTA, Zelda, GoW, FF, Pokemon, etc.) they get lazy after a while. They think that since it's so popular and successful that the fans of the franchise will keep buying it. Take sports games. The only real difference (from what I read here) in each edition is an updated roster. FF13 was a total bomb. Virtually everyone I have talked to hated Zelda Wind Waker for one reason or another. If I remember correctly there was a GTA that was universally hated and almost killed the franchise. It's due to lazy writing.

Also if the fucking devs would make one Zelda that had the same god damn Hyrule, I would be rather happy. But each one shows that Hyrule has more incarnations than hairs on a baboons ass.

I think to some extent that may be true but a lot of games are tough and also a lot of games are pretty much same in the name of churn. So yeah it has become the easy and boring on some points.
