In Moxxi’s Heist there is a crew challenge that kills you if you miss a jump (Jack’s Secret). This is infuriating!
First, the mechanics seem different. Normally, if I get close to an edge I can platform no problem. For this it feels like you made it artificially more difficult.
Second, dying and respawning constantly slows the game down.
Third, after playing for hours and building up some cash, I burn through it all in minutes.
I’m not some kid who can come home from school and play for hours. I have a very time consuming job and a family. I need to find time to squeeze in my game play. I just want to enjoy it. I understand making certain aspects difficult, and I enjoy the puzzles. But dying over and over again is frustrating. Of course, so is leaving a challenge undone. If a game becomes more of a chore or frustration than fun, I move on. Stop ruining one of my favorite games.
Last point. Maybe it doesn’t bother the ones who have more time to play. But it’s us old guys (48 is old in the gaming world I am guessing) that introduce gaming to our kids and have, generally, a lot more disposable income than the younger ones. Consequently, while I may not be your target demographic, I shouldn’t be ignored either.
