Instant Regret: Woman RAGES About Video Game Easy Modes & DEMANDS The World Caters To Her

They just want the game to play itself, you guys.

According to Polygon:

Depending on who you ask, there are many schools of thought surrounding the “right” way to play a game. Some people play games to experience challenges, others are in it more for the narrative, and plenty fall somewhere in between. Sometimes, your attitude on how to experience a title can entirely depend on the game itself. There’s no wrong answer here — that is, assuming you don’t try and impose it on someone else.

This might explain why in late March, a video clip by Twitch streamer Ashley Roboto exploded on social media, with over 500,000 views and 35,000 likes as of this writing. In it, the red-headed Canadian, whose streams focus on spreading positivity, goes on an impassioned speech against viewers who try and gatekeep the way she and other Twitch personalities play games.

“I want you to look right in my eyes right now,” she begins, noting that she’s only speaking to a specific audience within her chat. “Shut the fuck up … let people play games however they want to.”

In the stream highlight, she expresses disbelief that anyone would roast her for playing a game on easy mode. In an email to Polygon, she clarified that the clip occurred during a Kingdom Hearts 3stream, a game that she said is notoriously convoluted and has some of the most confusing lore in video game history. This is why she’s playing on easy — she wants to focus her attention on parsing the story.
