Video game journalists could perhaps be beyond parody.

I am sorry that you do not feel emotionally validated by Wolfenstein's difficulty menu. Get Good.
From here on out, the easiest difficulty setting for any game should be named "Game Journalist".

When you're bad at video games

Utterly predictable. Game Journalist feels shamed he can't play the game on Normal.

*Borat voice* "video game journalists!"
The man who wrote this article should sue for them using his photo as the very easy image
Okay, I didn't read the article but the idea of "rethinking difficulty menus" has got me thinking. What if games h…
Gamers in the replies: "Oh, you wrote a think piece on difficulty? Why are you so offended? You journalists are hur…
I wish I was bad at video games
I think this author is overthinking Wolfenstein's difficulty settings a bit too much, but still an interesting read
No entiendo la crítica a alguien que solo intenta hacer algo distitno del típico "Easy", "Normal" y "Hard"
Getting upset that a video game calls you a baby is exactly what a baby would do.
The easiest mode in games should be renamed to game journalist mode.
This article is dumb. Just because you felt peer pressure to play at a higher difficulty and didn't enjoy it don't…
So I see you suck at videogames huh?
Git Gud in games sucka

Complaining about the name of a difficulty settings now

It's really fun to see Kotaku get slammed more and more for their stupidity. 👌

Lmao I had to quit reading after article said turned it down to super easy WTF.
A video game journalist that sucks at video games? Unthinkable. via @kotaku
Every word of this is true.
Gaming journalist continues to define the "game journalists are terrible at videogames" trope.
People like this are exactly why difficulty menus make fun of babies. Fuck you and everyone that looks like you.
