10 Games That Insult You For Playing Easy Mode
Many games will unlock an easier mode if you die too many times in a row: God of War, Devil May Cry, Shin Megami Tensei 4, and so on. Few seem to be as insulting as The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile, though, which takes the mockery to a whole new level. Yes, if you bite the dirt way too often, the game will ask you if you want to start again in a new ‘Pretty Princess Difficulty’. Yikes.
On this mode, enemies barely pose a threat to you, and when you hit them, they bleed hearts instead of blood. Oh, and giant pink hearts appear all over each level. In case you’ve never played The Dishwasher, the game is drawn entirely in black-and-white, and features very gothic, demonic looking art throughout–so yeah, it’s essentially a constant reminder of your own shortcomings. Thanks.
