I've always hated how increasing the difficulty in Bethesda's games makes the combat extremely boring, as it just means I have to stab the enemies more to actually kill them. In my opinion, it should be like Metro 2033's Ranger mode. I should do just as much damage as I did before, but enemies should be able to do far more damage to me. The game would be more fun that way.
I think I just thought of a mod for the PC version...
I agree. I don't see a point in giving myself a headache for something I don't get rewarded for.
