I'm honestly getting tired of repeating myself. So this is my last Twitter statement on this People, influential people, journalists and the media outlets are making this confusing by continuing to use the language "easy mode" - Accessibility means options, not easy gameplay

In any game, whether it's Sekiro, Dark Souls, or any other skill-based game, there should be options to allow your health to be modified, your enemies help to be modified, and the game speed adjusted. This does not make the game easy. It allows people to make the game equal

In fact, I'm going to begin calling it "Equal Mode" where the options are in place so that I game can be made difficult, stay with the artist's "vision" and still allow people to play the way THEY HAVE TO. Equality means FAIRNESS. Easy for you is not easy for someone else

Nobody is advocating that we take your favorite game that is famous for being frustratingly difficult and make it so easy nobody cares. The only request on the table is to allow people who cannot "git gud" by learning, to have the options to make the game playable

Hard disagree. The notion of difficulty was always relative. This not a new concept. Artists have some artistic vision and the difficulty is part of it. If by acccessibilty you mean options to enable to modify control/ visual options so that it negates your disabilty than sure

games should be as accessible as they can be. If by accessibilitty you mean modifying actual difficulty level than no, thats altering the artists vision if the artist wants a game on a certain difficulty level.

This was what I tried to explain in the recent THR article! We are hurting accessibility when we hyper focus on "Easy Mode" You make a great point with this.

That distinction is incredibly important, and you're right it should be the new term. Thanks for all the learning your feed gives.

Ooooh. I REALLY like this idea. Because not only can it be used to make the game more accessible... it could also be used as a way to customize the difficulty in the other direction too. That's... heckin sweet.
