    I wouldn't call Go or Chess harder than the other, the level of difficulty depends on the opponent.  Although playing Go with a three year old, and simply keeping the toddler from eating the pieces, is the most stressful game in existance.  

    Like I mentioned before, it's the fault of misused words. The word OP is looking for is "complicated".

    Complexity is relative, the nature of chess leads to stategy and calculation. 

    Simply because there are more options does not make a situation more complicated. 

    Computers are better at Chess than Go because of the nature of how a computer operates. 

    Could a computer discern which is better, Coke or Pepsi?  Or to explain the beauty of a Van Goh compared to a sketch by a preschooler on the fridge?  Questions equally impossible to calculate, although there is a disparity in the, level of difficulty. 

    Go is more a game of strategy, quite visceral, visual and simply does not lend to cold, deliberate calculation.

    That's what I thought too. I figured that explanation made more sense. I just needed someone to remind me of that.
