There have been more than a few games in recent years which I've enjoyed immensely before a spike in difficulty interrupted the flow and caused me to put them down indefinitely. Whether it's a dubious development choice leading to a steeper difficulty curve or my own lack of skill, it's always disappointing that games I really wanted to love end up falling by the wayside.
A few examples that spring to mind include:
- Salt and Sanctuary - Those bloody skeletons in Hager's Cavern put me right off
- Shogun 2 - How was I to know everyone was going to turn on me in the end?
- Darkest Dungeon - I know it's kind of the whole ethos of the game, but I can't take the grind of raising my characters to the top level and then having them wiped out against one giant pig boss thing
Curious to know which games others have had similar issues with and if they have any methods of returning to them. Did you have issues with the games I mentioned above or am I just a wimp?
