Yeah let's take the fun out of video games.
Having no risk can divest a game of fun just as much as anything else can.
We get it. You like easy games. So? That's your opinion. And that
’s Jason's opinion. I'm inclined to agree with him here.
I also like games that have the option of being hard for the people that want a hard game, because I actually respect that some people would like a harder difficulty, as long as I can have my easier one.
I don't see you two giving me the same courtesy.
Actually, I agree with you all the way here. I suppose our difference after that is largely personal preference as to which of said modes we'd prefer (after having argued for their inclusion.
That said, I can't help but think that games (especially Sonic
ones) should be a bit more difficult by default—regardless of whether or not they provide an option. Hey, just make what the majority of them are now into easy mode, and make other modes for other players—or, of course, for those who begin on easy and later get better, because that's a very satisfying thing in itself.

So, honest question. Are you guys total work-o-holics in real life?
Honestly? Not really! I'm one of the laziest people I know. Having said that, in the right environment, I can't sit down or stand still; I have to keep working and at the limit of my speed and stress-tolerance. It really depends.
Not that it relates much to my approach to gaming, whatever that
is! :P The possible exception being that, if I found that mythical job-I-would-enjoy, then perhaps we'd see some relevance.
