Recently I've remembered of some games of my childhood.
The first was sonic chaos on the master system, which was actually too easy, since the bonus stages let's you skip the level you are in, while giving you lots of points, lives, and continues, and since it is the way to have the good ending, you have to litterally skip a good chunck of the game to truly win.... plus it is too easy since you have so many lives, even when not going to the bonus oevels, there is only 2 challenges in the entire game, the mecha green hill, and the last boss, which is fine, but really past the surprise of the first play, there is not much to do, except trying to win without losing a single life.
On the other end, another easy game, Castle of Illusion on the master system, was a really nice game, it starts easily, and never becomes unfair, just a well done game, easy but much more enjoyable, little puzzlesalong the way, appealing graphics, bosses that are fun, I have no grisp with it, it is easy but does not feel to easy.
The third is THE one, Wonder Boy III: The dragon's trap, it starts easy, then becomes pretty hard but everything is here to let you become better and stronger, and I never feel cheated even when the ennemies are becomming a pain (lionman stage, the ninjas that are just high enough to shoot over your shield... that was a sadistic trick)
As for trollgames (I am calling them like this since deep within your heart, you can heard them screaming "U MAD BRO!?LAWL"), it is really line being whipped in public, it is bad, it is not pleasant at all, but some people love this and will scream for more.
