With one of the most popular games on the planet, From Software's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, proving to be too difficult for many to master (or even progress in), when is it okay for folks to complain?

Should an Easy Mode be added for accessibility?

What might such a mode mean for experiencing the game?

For the intent of the developers?

For players tempted by the path of least resistance?

And should any of that matter when considering the folks that just want to experience the journey?
