Games are getting easier.

Seriously, was that so hard?

Games without adjustable difficulties are becoming easier and easier.

I think it's a mixture between us becoming better gamers, and the game developers trying to appeal to all audiences.

yea, games are getting pretty easy.

Super mario bros. actually had a challenge to it.
Mario Galaxy... what the hell?
Ocarina of time, had it's own difficulty curve.
Twilight princess, had a difficulty line.

as you said AotA, it's mix of good gamers and the games appeal.

Call Of Duty and Halo unfortunately aren't. They just get harder.

FUN FACT:
Portal 2 looks like it will break the easiness rule.
It seems to me that rated T - M games are more difficult.

(how did i just realize this?) -.-

CoD and Halo aren't hard.

As for difficulty, I don't like the way most of them handle upping it if they do up it. Making the enemy nearly immune to damage with ridiculous health/damage isn't a good way to buff them. Making their AI crafty would work better.

It is partly due to us being better than we were when we were younger, but that isn't the whole story I'd imagine. Having a third dimension has also made things easier in a sense.

Overall, it's just a number of things. There are still brutal games out there though. The remakes of Ninja Gaiden, Demon's Souls, etc. They still exist because they know how to make the games right. Death means something in those games. Knowing you could really be penalized for dying is a great way to approach difficulty escalation IMO.

Not really. There are hard games. I said that. There aren't as many as there were. I also said that. That's the whole point of this thread. The vast majority of mainstream games are getting easier and easier. This is especially true of Nintendo's first-party games.

Well, some developers go into projects saying "ok, lets make this game give them hell..." and others go in thinking "What of my nephew can't play it because it's too difficult?". depends on the game and the developer.

A lot of games have customisable difficulty levels now, especially like CoD and Halo. But you said 'without adjustable difficulty', so I'd have to agree that the majority games with only one difficulty setting are gradually getting easier.
