Snippet -

As the argument goes, games that are difficult rob lesser-skilled players of the chance to complete them, therefore making them exclusionary. There has been a narrative crafted that gamers who want to play difficult games are ‘toxic’ and want to keep people out of the hobby. This has been folded into the long-standing narrative of any criticism of games journalists being re-framed as harassment; only it has been re-packaged as endless think-pieces attacking difficult games and gamers who enjoy them. The sheer number of these articles coupled with their alarmist tone would have you believe there is a widespread problem with video game difficulty.
