Default Parents visit - Invite or Apply as tourists

My parents are planning to go for a visa interview. What is difference between me inviting them to visit me versus they applying as tourists. I understand that if they apply as tourists they need to provide documents showing that they can support themselves.

Will coming as a tourist diminish the possibility of getting 10 year multiple entry visa. Any thoughts on this issue is much appreciated.

Tourists -> They support themselves financially during entire trip
Invite -> You support them financially during entire trip

The chances of getting 10 years multiple entry as a tourist is less likely, if they apply as tourists. Again, it is up to the I/O.
