    Why not a list for the hardest?

    Think I’ll pick up Hoa as it’s one of the only Vietnamese-inspired games I’ve come across on Xbox, if not the only (hoa, pronounced “hwah” means “flower” in Vietnamese).

    Partly that, and partly the fact that difficulty becomes way more subjective at the other end of the spectrum. Take something like Marvel vs Capcom 3... I'm decent at fighters and would say that's a fairly tricky completion, but if you're no good at fighting games at all, those character trials would basically make it impossible. You know what, though? I am kinda tempted to trial a hardest sale games piece now, will see how my slate looks later this week...

    I'd rather have a list of the best/funniest, regardless difficulty, than a "hardest".

    The reason we do the Team Picks thing is because a standard 'best' list from each sale would end up being the same games again and again, and this format gives us a way to spin recommendations for games that are great without having to worry about the fact that there might be technically better games in the sale — there's only so many different ways to say The Witcher 3 and Hades are amazing.

    Funniest is way too subjective to work, sadly... some people will die laughing at Borderlands gags while others will involuntarily scream 'cringe' at them. Always looking for new angles, though!

    Is League of Super-Pets any good? Haven't played an on-rails game in forever and was waiting for it to go on sale.

    A few I have never seen before, so it is nice to see this lost populated with fresh content.

    I’m realizing I never even play my purchased games because of GP, so I think I’ll skip this week.

    I appreciate the consideration. While difficulty can be subjective, what about a mix of perceived difficulty, uncommon completions and highest TA score? Maybe it could inspire people that get fatigue from playing easy games that aren't fun.

    Right on! You might consider holding out until the next big seasonal sale. That way there will be more games available to list.

    No. Rented it from Gamefly like a week or two ago. Super not worth playing.

    (Achievements are pretty easy but you have to do them all in one sitting or else they seem to all become broken. Only way to fix it is deleting all your game data/saves)

    I really appreciate these articles. I’ve been using all the free money I get from Bing Rewards to fund these cheap little games.

    Id say bad choice of words, by funniest I actually was meant for a sense of enjoyment, not jokes or a laughing matter, as there are some game that are hard but you really enjoy them while others are hard just by sheer frustration with no enjoyment at all, making it a really miserable experience of a game, also some "easy" games and totally not fun at all. And normally the hard games are really easy to tell. toast.
