I have no problem admitting that I'd rather lower the difficulty of a game than get my ass beat over and over. It's my story and I play Skyrim just to see what will come next. So when I stumbled into Snapleg cave, and got ground into spider meat repeatedly, I pussed out and went to Novice. So what? Who cares? It doesn't matter if I suck at Skyrim. What matters is that my Argonian becomes Arch-mage, leader of the companions, and president of the Stormcloaks (haven't quite got there yet). Now I won't play the entire game like this, but I have the right to dominate everything if I wanna. Right?
