Its not exactly hard on insanity to be honest, especially with the Widow sniper rifle. ME1 was too easy, even on insanity though - I actually struggle to get myself killed.

A good example of a situation where playing on the hardest difficulty first would be bad is the Mass Effect series.

I have a friend who is like you are, thinks games are all about the challenge and always puts the difficulty as high as he can. He always ends up just playing everything multiple times, because the difficulty is turned so high. He did the same with ME2 and guess what? he ended up skipping lot's of the dialogue and didn't even do all the loyalty missions.
Agreed on that. First time I play something it'll either be on the easiest or the one just above that, that way I can enjoy the game properly, rather than wanting to throw my rig out the window because I keep failing on a certain bit. Then it gives you a reason to replay it, you replay and try and beat it on a harder difficulty. You can concentrate more on beating it rather than the story and gameplay because you've already played it.

BF2 didn't have singleplayer.....
I forgot what it was called--Co-op local multiplayer? Basically you and a bunch of bots on a local game...

I'm almost scared to ask y'all what games y'all played and beat on the hardest difficulty. This board has never really been on any Elite Gaming ish. I know y'all don't have no hardest mode trophies. What games y'all beat on the hardest settings. Me? What games haven't i beat because i only play on hard i don't care how long it takes me.
Fail troll is fail. Isn't this kind of baiting against the ToS? Reported.

I like hard games sometimes but I play a game for enjoyment. I don't want to be a counter-strike league/ cal/ etc. player and such, that's not why I play games.

I generally play games on normal unless I've already played it or know it's easy.

I tend to game on hard, because by the time I get midway through a game on normal it is too easy. I beat Dragon Age on hard, then made a new character and started the game on nightmare. I couldn't finish with that character because the game was too easy. I am now in the process of soloing the game on nightmare.

Why hate on other PC gamers when you could channel that hate toward console players? Really though, I play normal; thats the way games are meant to be played. Thats why its called normal. Harder difficulties are for people who loved the game and want to play through again.
