Keep in mind that not all of them on the hard list are really that hard or annoying, a few are just more time consuming. And if you enjoy the game there shouldn't be any issue gladly investing a little more time in it

That's true. Mafia 2 is a good example of that. I don't want to get the posters but I'll end up doing it because driving a hot rod around town is fun.

Still. Games that are impossibly hard aren't fun. Play on hard, Die in one hit, go through the game only with melee, and don't die. I won't even bother with achievements like that (combination of all 4).

Way to let the cat out of the bag, that one wasn't announced publicly yet

but ya, I counted about 6 that'd I'd end up getting anyways just because I do/will enjoy the game, not including ones I already have.

EDIT: Just noticed mafia 2 isn't even on the list, way to make a fool of myself >.<

I hadn't even read the list prior to that post anyways. Way to point fingers bro. Now I'll just go cry in a corner...

In retrospect I agree it is worth it. However, suffering from bullshit controls, spawning, weapons, glitches, and dying from one shot isn't fun.

I think there's a fine line between hard enough to be a true challenge giving great satisfaction once overcome and being something that makes even mild mannered me want to break things and rage quit the game forever.

Some hard games are fun, Dark Souls for example
Issue is more that most developers don't know how to do "hard" instead they just go the cheap route. Cheap deaths, jack up the enemies health and damage and call it good.

Agreed, as long as you get a fair chance and don't have to deal with utter BS.
