Video game difficulty is extremely adjustable in most cases. However, developer FromSoftware has created a niche genre with strict difficulty as its core tenet. The genre, commonly referred to as “souls-like” (in reference to the game that sparked the genre, “Dark Souls”), is centered around the idea that players want a challenge.
In October 2013, Pokémon introduced the fairy type—the first new Pokémon type since October 2000. In summary, each Pokémon has one or two “types,” and each move has one type. The move’s type determines how effective it will be against the opponent’s type(s).
Turn-based video games are direct descendants of board games and tabletop role-playing games such as Monopoly or Dungeons and Dragons. This video game genre includes classic series, such as Civilization and Total War, and their gameplay consists of players making set moves within a given turn.
To have been remastered is a point of pride for video games. The game gets updated graphics, more press and, most of all, a port to newer consoles. This shift to newer consoles reinvigorates the player base and introduces newcomers to the series while enticing veterans with a second playthrough.
