We all know that games have 3 basic difficulites: easy, normal and hard. When you get a new game, which difficulty do you set it the first time you play it? To be honest, I put it on easy to get the hang of the game then proceed to higher difficulites. How about you?

I usually just set it to normal, as i assume thats the way its intended to be played. Then after i beat it, i might go back and try it on hard if its worth playing again.

I just play on the hardest difficulty settings either way. I don't have the time or the patience to spend my hours playing but I'd rather let the game drag itself out since I am at a higher difficulty level and therefore will have a harder time and also longer time at it overall. Besides, I don't have an income and my parents just don't allow me to buy many new games very often (even if they are good titles). Not that I can anyway since I tried and got some shit copy in the guise of a genuine one (can't believe piracy and black-marketing have advanced so much).

Depends on the game. I'm just "average" on shooters most of the time (I always ham it up at LAN parties if I finish a match in the top 3), and usually start them on normal or easy (if normal kicks my ass). With strategy games, I usually start on easy (or manipulate settings to make it easier, like running 2v2 CoH maps with one computer opponent set to "easy" and the other two AI factions on normal) until I figure out what the hell I'm doing, which can take quite awhile! Where RPGs are concerned, however, I can usually crank the difficulty all the way up from the get-go, and usually come out on top, especially if it's based on the D&D ruleset (I played all of Black Isle/Biowares D&D titles under "hardcore" rules, back in the day).

Since I`m more interested in game`s storyline than fighting (in FPS games) , I play on "Easy" setting. I used to play Doom 2 and Quake (the first one) on all difficulty settings just to see how good I am , but those were the games who didn`t have any story and were all about action. With time I pretty much lost interest for that kind of games , but I`d still love to play good old Quake again. Eh... good old DOS games.

Depends how hard the game is. Something like Mass Effect, I've played through on all the difficulty levels including Insanity. Other games like Far Cry... I have to put on easy.

I usually play on Normal. If the game becomes too easy (or too hard) then I'll raise or lower the difficulty setting.

Usually, I play on Easy first. Lately, as I've been getting better at video games, I can kick it up to Normal for the first time 'round.

Mr. MattOther games like Far Cry... I have to put on easy.

Far Cry isn't even that easy on easy.... Something else i do with games that let you change the difficulty as your playing is set it to easy if i'm having a lot of trouble getting through a certian spot. After i get past it, it set it back up to normal.

Medium is the standard, unless it's a D&D style RPG. Hardcore rules, then.
