Now I don't drop the level because I want the cheevo for finishing a game on the harder setting but as a result I get fed up with trying over and over to do a difficult part of the game and stop playing it... unless I find it a really interesting game.
You've summed up exactly what I was thinking yesterday whilst reading this thread but didn't quite know how to word.
I've got a stack of un-finished great games that I've got into my head I must get finished on 'hard' for the cheevo (and usually better gaming experience). Looking now, I can see at least six games which fall into that category.
'Tis wierd 'cos I usually don't care about achievements; couldn't tell you what my gamerscore even roughly is without looking.
It's just those 'Complete on hard difficulty or above' ones which have me and it would seem they're doing the opposite of what they should
