I really like the hardest difficulties on the Zelda games. I'm playing through Link's Awakening on hero mode and I died 20+ times (my first playthrough ever) but it's never too punishing.
I also loved the Master mode in Breath of the Wild and WILL NOT PLAY BotW2 until they add a Master/hero mode difficulty (ok i might if it's not there but it should be there)
And the hero mode in Twilight Princess elevated that game for me.
Divinity: Original Sins 2 was very challenging for me. And I was playing on one of the lowest difficulty settings. (Classic or something.) I cannot fathom how anyone can get anywhere in that game on the higher difficulties. I really felt like I was missing some key parts of strategy in its combat because every encounter was a challenge. Either a full wipe x 10 or barely winning it on a razor's edge. For me it was slightly too frustrating to consider that the ideal difficulty for me.
I did a full honour mode run.
i made some additional streams but got removed it seems about how to figure stuff out and work your way through it. It's extremely hard to get it done in honour mode i agree with that. it costed me about 200 hours to finally make it.
For people not understanding how hard it is.
It's a 60-70 hour journey, 1 **** up can mean instant dead = remove of your save file and u got to start all over again from the start.
I must say its one of my favorite games for sure and its extremely well done. The voices the well designed area's are all incredible well done.
