Bird, I play Blood. On Well Done difficulty level. So you can't criticize SHIT for whatever choices I make on difficulty levels elsewhere.

I’m playing through Last of Us Part II on Hard. This enemy AI is a son of a bitch. You get your tits torn off every minute by these smartass sunzabitches. Sometimes its nice to take a break from hellzone fuckstorms with a more casual game.

Sometimes the game is too hard, even on Normal or Easy. In other cases, we just want to experience the story and world without dying every 10 minutes.

Because I want to navigate the story narrative and not respawn at the auto save over and over again because the npc's are more powerful than my sprite though I do play CoD on 'insane' setting for the 'killfrenzy' joy,haha.

 Yes. It usually is.

 I just want to play for fun, and I'm not very competitive or interested in challenge. I'm super casual.

I think in some of the newer 3d ones like 3d land and 3d world, if you die a certain amount of times on a level, you get a golden tanuki suit that is basically permanent star power.

People play on the easiest mode because they want to have relaxed gameplay, and they don't want to be stressed out. Games are supposed to be fun, not stressful. Like most games I play I play on the easiest mode, because I want to have a relaxed experience. I do play on normal at first, but I end up changing it to the easiest mode. Ghost Recon is an example, played it on normal at first but for missions dealing with UNIDAD I changed it on Arcade Mode. I liked how chill it was, so I left it on.

If its a new genre or game, then I think playing on Easy is fine because you need to learn (IE, guitar hero, or for me, XCOM). But i think its much more rewarding to play on the harder difficulties if it makes it a challenge, like almost every cod on Veteran. I do think that the trend for games to handhold for bad players is awful. At that point, just go watch a walkthrough on youtube.

I don't have as much time or patience with games these days because I'm getting older, have a lot more responsibility and the fact there's just not enough time in the day to dedicate 3 to 5 hours.

The only game I've played on hard is MGS4 and I'd never played a MGS game before that. I'm playing through MGS1 on easy now:3 
I'm just into games for the story and characters, gameplay comes secondary to me always.

First time I'd never pick that option but it's a fun one to pick for a third or fourth playthrough when you want to absolutely dominate the enemy. There's a great deal of fun to be found in that... but only real fun when you know otherwise how difficult they can be.

Depends on the person, the game, and the reason they're playing it.

And like :iconherbaldrink: said, difficulty is subjective.

That might not be bad for some genre's of games, say, a platformer or the simpler hack and slashes, but for some games that's beyond stupid.

Easy modes usually aren't something I care for, but I'm sure there are plenty of people that just want to sit and relax with a game instead of chiseling away because it's too difficult. Games should be enjoyable, not a chore.

Sometimes, the game just has bad difficulty option balancing. Many fighting games are really bad about it. The worst I've found was the version of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo in the Capcom Classics Collection.

It really depends on the game. In the case of hack and slash games, such as Samurai Warriors, I tend to play on the easiest difficulty to make it easier to level up. The only exception to this was getting all the character's 4th weapons, which requires the player to play on Hard. It was brutal at times and some stages required many retries.

Depends; some game's "difficulty" is pretty bullshit, ie just throwing more enemies or making enemies damage sponges. That's not very fun of a challenge.
