I personally play a bunch of games on easy. Mainly because I can get through them faster. With the amount of games I have still to play I have no desire to get a "challenge" from most of them.
Ikaruga, because hard is insanity needing a drill to the temple to release pressure.
IMO the worst way a game increases difficulty is to give enemies more HP and more damage output. That's so elementary.
However, when enemies employ greater strategy I view that as "legit" difficulty.
Going back to Alien Isolation, within its universe, the logic has to make sense. The idea of the gameplay is that by being stealthy, I'm able to avoid the alien. So then why the fuck can I crouch-sneak for a mile, and yet the alien always seems to be within a 200ft radius of me.
That is not legit, so I switch it to Easy for the remainder of the game.
For Ikaruga, it's actually hardest on normal. On easy, killing ships releases no shots from them, but on hard it always does. That means on hard, you at least know what's coming and it charges your mega bomb much faster. On normal you don't know if the shots are coming or not so it'll really keep you on your toes.
I would say I Wanna Be The Guy and related games would be better on easy because the harder difficulties simply reduce the amount of checkpoints.
Games like CoD/BF SP I play on Normal or Easy. The only real difference in difficulty in those games is that the AI is hyper-accurate and you die almost instantly. Doesn't really add anything to the game to increase the difficulty.
