BIT.TRIP you are too difficult

   0
My relation with the BIT.TRIP series is akin to one between an abused wife that still clings on to her husband. There are so many aspects I love about it, the music, the art style and the devilish simplicity, but there has always been one thing that has always held me back from truly loving this series. The difficulty.

Now there is probably many a masochist that really enjoys this challenge, and there are also many people who enjoy getting fists inserted into their anus. All jokes aside though if you're not already calling me a whining bitch please take the time to see were I'm coming from.

You see, there are a few things the BIT.TRIP games have always had in common, simple gameplay, a modern take on retro graphics that is both appealing to look at and easy on the eyes and fantastic music which the game rewards you with if you do well.

I don't know if I'm crazy, but to me these are all aspects that would make for a great game for more entry-level or (dare I say it?) casual gamers as well as more enthusiastic gamers who just want a fun experience. Unfortunately with the current difficulty I can't even recommend it to my other gamer friends.

I consider myself a competent gamer and I do enjoy a challenge (like Super Meat Boy), but having me restart a 15 minute level after fucking up is just sadistic and certainly not fun. I've had BIT.TRIP.BEAT for over a year now and I'm still not past the second level. Every time I try to beat it I inevitably screw up half-way through and I have to start all over again. And yes I have rage quit. Quite a few times.

BIT.TRIP.RUNNER is a bit more forgiving with most of the levels being shorter than 2 minutes, but once again I have hit a stopping point (level 1-11 if you want to know). The sad thing is I was having a wonderful time with this game, and then it felt the need to make me suffer.

Again let me reiterate that there are most definitely people that enjoy the BIT.TRIP games because of their difficulty but I think they could be so much more if they weren't busy trying to bust our balls.
