Easy (dad) mode enabled.
Back in the day, a hard game was something to conquer; something to practice, to strategize, to solve.
Nowadays, that goes out the window.
Fatherhood put extreme time constraints on gaming with the little responsibility that rolls into your world; and to have a game be so difficult that it takes your time and patience, it’ll be a game that ends up in your backlog, incomplete. Games should offer easy modes without punishment as well. Far too often, games will only have the best ending or the best gear available when you select the harder difficulty levels.
And now here’s someone who’s not necessarily a dad, but someone just as busy as one, and finds his gaming time is better served on easy mode.
