One of the reasons we play video games is to give ourselves that sense of power and grandeur that we can only ever dream of obtaining in our day-to-day lives. Be it through magical powers, godlike strength or mastery of bladed weapons, we love to feel like we could take on the world and come out unscathed.
Although as much as we love to feel like an absolute powerhouse on the battlefield, it is possible for it to go a little too far. Accumulating power over the course of a game's journey in a gradual way is often the best route to go, but some games choose to give you all the goodies early, allowing you to be overpowered in the early stages.
Having a taste of absolute power is fun for a while, but having too much can sometimes hamper an experience, reducing a game’s difficulty to a simple stroll in a country park and in some cases, cheapening the entire experience by removing any real semblance of challenge.
