This kinda makes me happy, because all these hipsters who claim they're way better at games than me just because it's "cool" to be a nerd these days, who play Indie games and other mainstream shit like League of Legends, they're probably involved in this statistic, and I was right all along.

Simply a matter of genres changing, platformers are less and less important and the whole genre is more being taken over by the puzzle platformer, with the emphasis on the puzzle. In the same way I might point out that most modern gamers dont know how to strafe jump in goldsrc games, why is that? Pretty simple its just a style of game that isnt used anymore even though the actual mechanic is key to that style of games and is pretty simple to do.

What? But that level is easy, I don't get why people can't finish it.

I was wondering why I didn't shit myself at boss fights like I used to. The game really is easier. Disappointing for the gamers who can actually play platformers pretty well.


Many thought the coins were enemies and tried to avoid them.


Well this certainly cracked me up.

Games are no longer difficult because the new generation wants reward without the challenge.
