Subsequently, one may also ask, why were Nintendo games so hard?
Because you couldn't put a lot of stuff in a NES cartridge, so the games were designed in a way that an expert player could beat them in less than an hour, but to reach that skill level you had to play the game over and over and over again until you mastered the mechanics and memorized every single pattern.
