Will normal be the best difficulty?

17 replies 294 views Edited Jun 4, 2013
I've played the demo at least 6 times and I plan to play it again right after I'm done taking a dump and I've noticed something. The difficulty changes how many crafting items you receive. And I noticed that because of this I had the most fun with easy and normal mode. On hard the only thing you can craft is a medkit but if you play on easy you can craft a shiv or a melee upgrade. I want tlou to be hard on my first play through but I also want to have fun with the crafting system but I fear that I won't be using it as much on hard mode cus there aren't enough items. What do you all think?

Normal will be the best difficulty because it gives you more crafting items but isn't very easy like easy mode

Forgot to put that in

First playthrough I'm dumbing it down to Normal, then immediately going to Survivor after doing Normal+.

Hard is the best difficulty IMO. It suits the universe the most. 

 

Not everywhere you search is there going to be supplies. 

 

Not every enemy you kill gives ammo. 

 

It makes you think about your choices. And plan out accordingly what your going to do. 

 

Usually you only have enough supplies to make one out of two craftable items. Creates tension. 

 

I like it best.

Nah, I'm definitely going for the hardest difficulty possible from the beginning,

since normal gives you way too much supplies.

 

It really depends if you are a guns blazer or a stealth gamer.

Yea I'm still going for hard mode. Then survival! I actually wish there was another harder mode. Unless survival is like the hardest they can make it without making it impossible

Can somone straighten this out for me?. You can't craft the same ammount of items as you could on normal?. Or is he saying you aren't given as much items on hard but you can still craft the same items?.

I'm pretty sure he's saying that you still have the same craftability as you do on a lower difficulty, but the amount of supplies you will find to craft those items will be far more infrequent on higher difficulties.

 

Basically, it'll make you think about what you want to create and make you wary of using a valuable item in crafting.
