Old May 14th, 2007, 01:10 PM        Hardest games
I'm thinking of possibly doing a piece on hardest video games, so if anyone has any extremely difficult games to suggest, I'm all ears. I'm thinking of oldschool teeth-grindingly hard games from back in the day, because even the hardest games these days look like a walk through the park compared to some of those.

So far off the top of my head I've got:

Castlevania
Ghosts & Goblins
Mega Man
Battletoads
Ninja Gaiden

In cases of series, I'm only going to include one game that's representative of the whole. Feel free to suggest others, though I'll be more inclined to use games that I've played or am familiar with...though if I can download a ROM of stuff I'm not familiar with, it might still be included.

I KNOW there are plenty of other games that had me foaming at the mouth in a rage, but this is all I can remember at the moment.

Maybe focus on games that are hard because of difficulty, like Ninja Gaiden or Mega Man, not stupid hard like Ghosts and Goblins or Ghost Busters that is simply hard for lack of lives?

Here's a good one though: Milon's Secret Castle

Oooh yeah, the first TMNT WAS hard. Annoying as shit too.

I played a little bit of Blaster Master at a friend's, but not enough that I remember how hard it was.

And I'm not familiar at all with Milon's Secret Castle, I'm afraid.

I cant even get fast the first driving sequence because of the godawful controls for doing a turn.

I used to get through them by just driving down the very center of the road to avoid cars, but once you got the cop car, it was just impossible.

the Genesis vehicle parts were pretty simple up to the point you mentioned, but apparently for the SNES, the programmers must have decided that pulling off turns should be as insanely frustrating as possbile.

Final Fantasy 2. If you take a wrong turn, you can wander into an area that randomly spawns monsters that are way out of your league and get killed with surprising ease.

I really think The Lion King is a damn hard game. It's not so bad until you get to a level that is constantly raining rocks down, rocks that will MURDER YOU in two hits.

I hate the Lion King.

Rayman 2 was extremely tough.

I just beat Castlevania for the first time last night on the Virtual Console

That game makes me angry

Another one I'm adding to my list is Kid Icarus. I can't believe that one hadn't occurred to me until just now.

Keep the suggestions coming, guys...I'll probably just stick with games I've played firsthand, and obviously you don't know what those games are, but some of these are sparking my memory.

Oh, and Contra is actually pretty damn hard if you don't use the cheat code.

The annoying thing about Kid Icarus is that apparently it gets EASIER as you go, but I wouldn't know because I could never make it past the second fucking board thanks to all those impossible jumps.

for more modern games i've always found the gran turismo series to be maddeningly difficult (the international license tests especially)
