Brutal Difficulty: Motivator or Demotivator?


I found Ninja Gaiden at GAME the other day for $12. Sensing a bargain, I picked it up, knowing that by buying the vanilla version of the game, and not the 'Black' version(which I think is banned in Australia), I was forfeiting any kind of easy difficulty option.


That was a mistake.


The difficulty of that game is FUCKING INSANE. After beating the first boss, I've simply put the game back on my shelf and left it there for about a week. I don't know if I can go back to it now. The controls and fighting mechanics are absolutely brilliant, but the difficulty is a huge turn off for me. This is my question for you D-toiders, is brutal difficulty something that motivates you to keep playing a game, or, like me does it just scare the hell out of you?
