WoW is a lot easier than SC and Halo...
I can easily play with one hand. It's insane how much Bliz has lowered the difficulty.

Wow vanilla was so easy.
Halo CE on legendary was also easy.

Yep, I totally agree with this chart

You're missing the point of the chart. This purpose wasn't to convey WoW, Halo, or SC. It was to convey the difficulty of Dwarf Fortress compared to how other popular might scale in difficulty.

Shouldn't starcraft be way steeper? Especially with scouting, counterplays, counterplays to counterplays, counterplays to counterplays to counterplays, eco management, and just plain out APM that must be done to compete in higher levels of play.

Look for something called the Lazy Newb Pack. It improves the graphics beyond ascii, makes the game much easier to play. Definitely worth the effort.

its a game thats difficult to pick up, but once you do its like any arcade game; you play and try to keep alive as long as possible before your dysfunctional society of dwarves figure out a way to kill themselves.

Anyone here played teleglitch lately?

Good game. Short but sweet, and I found it refreshingly challenging at first.

Probably wouldn't have been challenging if you looked stuff up, but idk. It was really fun to just figure stuff out on my own instead.

Which reminds me: I think that while games have definitely gotten easier (in part to open it up to a broader audience), there are also plenty of ones just as hard, you just have to look. If anything there's even more than there used to be.
However, I think one of the biggest things making games easier these days is that you can look up such a massive amount of tutorials, guides, info on wikis, watch let's plays, etc, etc such that you pretty much can't lose. Back in the day, you either couldn't look up anything so it had to be word of mouth if anything, or even when you finally could look stuff up it was pretty much just cheats for messing around with, not really anything for if you wanted to play the game legit (like age of empires cheats and stuff).

It wasn't for quite a while that people could go to a wiki and look up more than half of all info on a game in an hour or so. And there certainly weren't any "let's plays" or things like that. You'd be lucky to occasionally be able to find a tutorial, and even then it probably wasn't a video.

According to the graph, the difficulty is both fairly easy and incredibly difficult at the same point in time... Do you enter a time warp once the difficulty ramps up?

So i go to a college with quite a few interactive media and game design majors. All of my friends have no idea dwarf fortress even existed, ad they literally play nothing but video games all day. Seriously. My roommate is an interactive media and game desinger and he gets cranky when he doesn't play videogames at least every other day.
