Which four games would you combine to create the most diffic

Postby LexLeon » Mon May 28, 2012 12:28 pm

ult AR section? Of course, this may be a bit subjective. But I'm just wondering opinions.

It's so strange that the games can be so subjectively difficult. I thought birds, snakes and lizards, fruit stand, and Zephyr were super easy, but you are missing some of my least favorites. bus seats is objectively terrible

Don't let it. It's like what Jam said, they're subjective. I always thought snakes and lizards and dinosaurs were easy, some ppl don't. New and used cds, though, omg fml I hated/hate that game

Co-sign this. I murdered CDs in like 5 minutes first time out, with no diagram. Snakes and lizards took more than twice that.

Yeah I didn't think it was that bad. In fact I forgot it existed until ppl started complaining about it so much. And I've long held that Dino's is not too bad at all.
For some reason the 9 aisles that needed cleaning gave me the most trouble out of any game, though I'm sure most ppl found it easy. Like ppl said it's subjective.

I don't even think Dinos is the hardest game on that test.

Dinosaurs is above and beyond the hardest. I also thought the in/out game of different school subjects (history, math, linguistics, etc.) was really difficult. Other than that idk.

by the way, the four games together to make the toughest test, wouldn't just be the four toughest, but also the most time consuming. I missed a four questions on the dinos test (none on that game though) because that game takes an extraordinary amount of time. If I ran into that game and then several of the other crazy hard ones, I think I'd be screwed, if only because the dino game takes about 12 minutes.

I don't remember the other ones, prob cause they're not famous, but I do remember missing two on that section but acing Dino's.

But the only thing that really measures difficulty is how time consuming a particular game is. With unlimited time, any good LG'er will get every question correct. With easy games, they'll finish quickly. And of course, with difficult games timing is the only thing that makes the game "hard."

Dinos literally just has one key inference that isn't that hard to make. You just need to remember that you are selecting 5/7 so play it like an in/out game but multi-row it with the colors. The inference is that U/V is out and than the rule that L/U can not both be mauve severely limits the game. I found it fairly easy.

uh, I don't think this is always the case. Some are just super tricky, but if done correctly, can be done in 4-5 minutes. For instance, the Zephyr airlines game isn't that time consuming once you figure out the hard part (I don't remember it well enough, but it's some level two inference about a chain of events). It's tough to figure the game out at all, but once you do, it doesn't take too long. Then there are games that, although they aren't the toughest, take forever regardless.

This helps me make my point (at least in my case). I figured out what made the game tick, but it still took a while to run through. It's just one of those grind it out games that steals time away from tougher games. One of those circular table games they used to have was the same way.

Yea I didn't mean to say there is an absolute way of looking at it. For me at least, there is a strong correlation between how much time it takes and how difficult it is.
