This guy is an outright twit and needs to stop pushing his poorly conceived narratives, he speaks in broad general terms without clarifying with detailed examples and worst of all he clearly doesn't play games on the highest modes like the vid title suggests, so he has no place speaking about the particulars of them if he hasn't even bothered. Instead of informing us on what the title indicates he forms a biased argument that seems outright against higher modes.
Controls=Difficulty: Well he kept going on about controls making a game more difficult, but he flip flops from meaning the external input layout and the games internal controls, which are 2 very different things. He clearly isn't used to a games internal controls, he quips about more realistic animations effecting the game, I think he means animation priority. His argument seems to be based on realism determining difficulty. This seems to be the crux of his argument(even though he said we play games to escape reality in the S rank vid).
Bayo/arcade games=button mash fest: well he's not really a "arcade gamer" as he says if he thinks this. He disregards all the actual changes to its higher modes, those like many other action titles being remixed enemy placements with altered and faster move sets that deal more damage, maybe whole new bosses and enemies to face. He says his experience with bayo on higher modes is little to no different, which is a matter of him not playing different and just mashing as he blatantly admitted. To be fair, bayo is very lenient compared to other action games, I beat bayo 1 infinite climax(haven't played bayo 2 so I can't say) recently and it was pretty easy. If this where DMC3 DMD he'd stand no chance without items/exploits(no chance still), likely wouldn't get past Cerberus.
Witcher 3 is harder than bayo 2= He seems to not really understand the intricacies of bayo, I can't say on the difficulty of witcher 3 but it's a different game that requires different things, and this guy said he doesn't play witcher highest mode as he deemed it 'impossible', so what kind of comparison is this? He keep going back to geralt controlling more realistically but doesn't explain how that factors into gameplay, he says witcher is more tactical than bayo because of how geralt moves. He doesn't seem to understand timing or mechanics and wants to blame the game.
Fair/unfair difficulty= I suck: He can't handle hardest modes, don't make a vid about the changes on highest modes. I've no clue what he's saying by this, hardest modes are balanced for higher skilled players, that's the point of higher modes, you play on a lower mode until you are comfortable and skilled enough at a game to graduate to the subsequent higher mode, they force you to be more efficient with your play and necessitate a better understanding of a games mechanics, learn enemy patterns and so on. If you can't handle the higher modes don't play them, your choice. He seems to think that if he can beat it or understand it on some level then it's fair. He says souls have a good approach to difficulty despite not having difficulty modes except NG+, and souls are a joke compared to any other action games highest mode. Games with difficulty modes offer a greater range of balance than any souls game, too hard on NG or DMC then play on ninja dog or auto easy modes, the fact that these 'uber' hard games have modes below easy speaks volumes about how much the creators cared about accessibility.
This vid isn't supposed to be about fairness in games, he mentions fairness but his statements are completely unsubstantiated and nonsensical.
I'm genuinely struggling to understand his message it's so incoherent, what is he even on about? He should come back and actually explain what changes for games on the highest modes, because he doesn't seem to play them in the first place so he isn't qualified to speak on the matter. Games can change he says, but clearly he hasn't and blames the game like bayo for not changing on highest modes(even though it does). Truly baffling I must say. I've in fact learned less from this, I've unlearned.
