LR getting more difficult?

Is it just me or is LR getting more difficult on recent tests?

I think overall it's getting a little harder. But the easy points are still there.

I was getting the impression it was getting harder - but I've been taking some LSATs from the early 90's and those LR's seem worse. I feel like the reading comp has gotten increasingly difficult though.

Logic Games however seem to keep getting easier...
Just let me in somewhere. Please!

I get the feeling that the tests in the early 90's had a greater emphasis on formal logic whereas now, that is not necessarily true

Personally I feel like the Reading Comprehension passages have gotten infinitely harder especially the 2000 and later LSAT prep. tests.  Even the easier reading passages like literature and history have started talking about 4-5 different literary theories/historical perspectives etc.  Am I right?  I usually am wrong.

I find the LR to be a bit harder, but that might be because I've hit a downward trend while I'm trying to reform my thinking on them or something. I variate between doing very well and sucking. I have a feeling I'm going to just get them soon, so hopefully that will negate my nagging worry.

Games are pretty easy.

RC is more dense, but no harder, I don't think. The number I miss has stayed completely the same: between 2 and 4.

I definitely think the RC has gotten alot harder. LG has stayed the same and possibly gotten easier (except for that A.D game in LSAT 44? which kind of threw me off).  I think LR has gotten slightly harder. Mainly, I've noticed beginning with LSAT 40, the LR sections have an average of 25 to 26 questions which is 1-2 more additional questions when compared to old exams.  It definitely affects pacing.
