Gaming Thought, for " : Game Secrets Shouldn't Make Things Easier

Opinion, reflecting, on personal experience, after reading this review of Shadow Warrior's remake : RockPaperShotgun's Wot-I-Think: Shadow Warrior

Large game secrets should provide added challenges, not make going forward easier. Otherwise, how can someone access them without deflating the game experience for them? It means that people taking the game's fight head-on have to avoid them in order to keep the their chosen level of difficulty/challenge up - which is contrary to their drive to dominate everything within the game.

Secrets are wanted to be found and exploited, because that's a success of discovery skill, but that success isn't wanted to diminish the rest of the game by giving that player an unfair advantage, which is what powerful bonuses do.
