Because these aren't even trying to be the characters themselves, they are pretentious teenagers roleplaying and, as such, they all have the same personality.

Because it's not actually my waifu talking, just some cool teenager that tries to be funny with these things and changing the character's personality. They probably imagined a Touhou character's personality from all the doujins they've read and IOSYS MVs they've seen. You can't really see much of a Touhou's attitude and whatnot from the games and most of the official works though.

On the plus side, the drawings are somewhat cute. It helps them improve drawing their BL fanart I suppose.

>> No.8382453

I actually agree. If I create a game I want as many people as possible to play it, and an easier mode is a good back door to avoiding frustrating game mechanics I may have been unable to fix from being too frustrating.

Not everyone should have to have Skills to enjoy a game, I think. It gets a bit pretentious otherwise.

The good thing about Touhou is that at least you can keep playing and find yourself getting better, and memorising more patterns. It's a little frustrating but it has a real skill curve, unlike most "difficult" games. Though some titles(Shoot the Bullet) break this too.

>> No.8382448

Gotta control that rank !

>> No.8382451



>> No.8382532

you can find yourself getting better in any difficult game the more you play it. the skill gains in touhou are more noticeable because they're relatively easy, so you make more progress faster.

maybe "difficult" games with fake skill curves are just too hard for you.

>> No.8382568


>> No.8382574


Not really, I tend to hit a wall where I get too frustrated to go on.

With the Touhou games I just ended up getting too busy with college and lost the mental energy.

A lot of games are only difficult because of bad controls or game mechanics so those who are "skilled" at them are just those who have the most tolerance for them.

ZUN himself agrees that EASY MODO is for babies and casuals through his descriptions on difficulty settings. It all comes down to whether you feel okay with actually being called a baby or a casual.

Also, playing on Easy doesn't help you improve. Just like doing easy stuff while exercising doesn't help you shred up.

>> No.8382588


that's not really true. It still helps you remember some of the bullet patterns and get a feel for the game in general.

You probably won't improve as fast, but for people that get stressed out easy it's a good stopping off point.

ZUN wouldn't put in Easy Modo if he didn't think it was necessary.

I haven't played on easy since I was like 12 or something, it just seems like you don't get to enjoy the game at it's fullest :V

If you play on Easy, you remember patterns the wrong way and end up getting killed on higher difficulties by following your standard "Easy" movement. Essentially, you have to learn each stage all over from scratch.

Easy is "for Sunday shooters" and that's its only necessity. You play it only if you don't really feel like improving.

>> No.8382657


I'm actually a primary :/ I first downloaded Touhou after my bigger laptop was in for repairs and I needed something fun that'd run on an EEEPC.

I still say Easy can help you give a feel for how the game works. I think introducing it to someone who's new to the series, it makes sense to start them off on that. When they can clear one game on easy, then they can step up to Normal on the rest.

I play my Touhous on easy because memorization as the most important part of the skill challenge is bad and gameplay design at its most superificial.

I'm not saying it can't be enjoyable, but I just feel stupid having to 'learn' a game in that way.

You are right. You are paying to have a fun, not an obligation. I have almost no time to play a game due to obligations so why have to get more obligation like "play only at hardest mode."

If you're having to memorize spellcards (especially on Normal), you're either going about playing the game incorrectly, or are trying to capture Phantom of the Grand Guignol. Having a general feel for how the spellcard works combined with perception, anticipation, and reaction are far better than memorizing when to move where.

Whenever I play a touhou game, I always just hop straight into the highest difficulty. After all, arcade games don't really have difficulty options. Some do, but they hardly make a difference most of the time unless it's something like Gradius. DOJ on very hard also made a big difference, but who plays on anything but the default settings in arcade shmups?

And I'm sorry, but if you seriously can't clear Normal after a week of playing, you probably shouldn't be playing these types of games. Stick to just watching superplays or something, kids.

>> No.8383288

I can 1cc hard now but i think i had gone too far. Any more playing won't improve my skill any further and the danmaku is really intense now. So i get back to Normal most of the time, playing as 75 or 90 FPS is more fun.

The only thing i keep trying now is STB and some hardest DS cards remaining.

>> No.8385697

this is obviously a lie; higher challenge can never be fun. or at least that's what /jp/ tells me
