Difficulty question

Hey guys.

The game has an achiev for completing in Hard Difficulty.
Well, I bought this game, not started it yet and this game is HUGE.

Is it good for first time playthrough on Hard?
Cause I'm not seeing me playing again 80hours. I just don't have the time.

I wanna know if the Hard mode spoils the game. Because if that happens, I don't care. I'll just play in normal.

Thanks in advance dudes.

It isn't 80 hours if you are just doing a Hard run through, more like 8-15 hours for just the storyline and any sidequests you decide to grind with if you need it. That being said, Hard isn't all that hard if you just wanted to start on it and try to get all the achieves in one go.

Yeah it's not that hard at all, I played on hard right off the bat and it wasn't that difficult. Craft your own weapons asap to make it stupidly easy if you want.

**Thanks to Rajeanero for the sig**

I have to agree...It was surprisingly easy on "Hard". It was a fun game!

Still I was just freaking out, when realized, my game was set back to normal at some point when i didnt notice (likely the stupid 'do you want to lower difficulty' window), and my last save game (7 hours ago) was already on normal.. I am certain I started on hard, I checked the 'end of tutorial' save and its set for that.. Bah, I am furious.
