I just finished my first runthrough of Bioshock 2. I had a good time, but as I was crawling through the halls of Rapture, I noticed an alarming trend.
I wasn't dying. At all.
Three hours into the game, and I used my first health pack. All in all, I used somewhere between twenty and thirty health packs for the entirety of the game.
I was raised on Dark Forces (the game terrified me as a child, no kidding), Duke Nukem, X-Wing and Mechwarrior. Now, I find it funny that these franchises are dead (I'm not holding my breath for Duke, and Mechwarrior 5 has officially been red taped out of existence). In these games you were far from fragile, but you could still except to be slain by the AI every know and then.
Now, don't mistake this as an underlying "I AM A GOD-TIER GAMER, FEAR ME" message. I'm not unstoppable, I'm not unbreakable. Oh, and I wasn't playing on easy, either.
It just seems like most modern games I can breeze through with little or no problems.
I want to hear your thoughts? Agree? Disagree?
