View Full Version : Hardest game you've ever played?

May 21st, 2010, 11:23 AM
I love video games, but I find myself thinking every game other than Pokemon is hard. XD Anyway, what are some of the hardest games you've played? Have you actually beaten them, or did you just give up? Feel satisfied?

I can think of a series that don't play around. Super Mario Bros. I haven't beaten one of those games (with the exception of SMB3). Maybe I'm just not good at platformers or something, but I find myself always screwing up in these games. The farthest I've made it in the original game is World 5. Don't even get me started on SMB2. SMB3 isn't one to mess around either. I don't know how I even beat that, and no, I didn't use the flute (or the toot as I call it).

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is still a doozy for me, and it was the game that got me into the series. I've already beaten KH2 since, but dang! This one is just insane for me. I get a headache with all the fast paced action on such a small screen. That and not having Donald there to cure you all the time usually ends up with me dead.

Ocarina of Time also comes to mind. One of my favorite games of all time, but you stick a redead in front of me, and it instantly gets a difficulty rating of 10/10. I hate those things that much. But needless to say, I beat it and I'm damn proud of myself. I bragged a bit...even though I only beat it in February or March and most other people beat it 11 times years ago. XD

This post was longer than it needed to be, so y'all free free to not mimic my tl;dr.

'Super Ghouls and Ghosts', 'Contra', 'Battletoads', and 'Ikaruga' come to mind, only beaten 'Battletoads' and 'Ikaruga'.

As for recent games, none are all too difficult. Had trouble with Ninja Gaiden, but once I got used to it, it wasn't that bad. Too bad I had to give it back right after that happened. I was kind of sad with the difficulty of Splinter Cell: Conviction. My first playthrough was on Realistic, and I beat it in like three days.

Oh, and I've never gotten past level 5 of Pac-Man, so, yeah.

The hardest game I've ever played was God of war 2.

seemed easy from youtube, but NO!

The bosses on Persona 4 (where I got my username) are impossible, I swear.

I had so much trouble on this guy:
His rampage destroyed me every time, but I eventually won. Unfortunately I'll Face Myself will be stuck in my head forever.

Had a lot of trouble on Monster Hunter and I Wanna Be the Guy too.

definitely space invaders on the n64 on expert. i got to earth mars and died at the boss

As said before, Super Ghouls n Ghosts was a brilliant, but incredibly tough game. I never got past the Sea of Despair.

And Battletoads in Battlemaniacs wasnt that bad, but still tough. I have never finished that either.

May 22nd, 2010, 12:35 AM
Ninja Gaiden 2. Oh, my god. It's like the creators didn't want you to finish.

May 22nd, 2010, 1:29 AM
Not necessarily hard on it's own, But FFXIII No Crystarium Challenge.
Probably the hardest self-imposed challenge I've ever attempted in an RPG.

castlevania order of ecclesia on hard. as if normal wasnt hard enough. get hit twice with a bone and ur dead...

May 22nd, 2010, 3:53 AM
Ninja Gaiden Sigma. If anyone else has played a Ninja Gaiden game, they would probably agree.

Also, Call of Duty : World at War on Veteran Mode was pretty difficult as well.

May 22nd, 2010, 4:09 AM
Multiplayer MW2.

Everyone's better than me :(

Ninja Gaiden Sigma, broke two controllers in frustration at that game. And I still havn't completed it.

May 22nd, 2010, 9:20 AM

Oh, and I've never gotten past level 5 of Pac-Man, so, yeah.

I still have that game memorized. After the first two levels it is all about remembering. Specially on the speed bikes and maze. My god did I hate that maze. I hated the maze and tower levels most.

The Queen was pretty hot though.

I'm kinda surprised to hear people say that Person 4 was hard. It's harder to level up in it than 3, but you get total control of the characters again and I really thought it was a breeze overall.

Anyway, staying on the MegaTen games, if it's your first play through, selecting the True Demon Ending is insanely hard. I almost tore my hair out several times.

May 22nd, 2010, 9:46 AM
i agree with that call of duty world at war in veteran mode..damn! ninja gaiden: sigma is one of hell too.

May 22nd, 2010, 10:28 AM
Kid Icarus. Because of its smallish cult following telling me how awesome it was on GameFAQS, it was one of the first things I downloaded for the Wii's virtual console. It is pretty good, but hard as heck. XD

...freakin' eggplant wizrds...

~Gamecube's F-ZERO GX

There was this game on the N64 called Body Harvest. Omg was that game hard. I haven't manged to beat it but my older manaed to beat it within a month which is the longest time ever to beat a game. Also Super Mario 64 had it hard moments...damn Rainbow Cruise.

May 22nd, 2010, 4:09 PM
The whole Metal Slug series. Seriously once you get the the harder missions ( Mission 2 and further) You'll end up screaming from the amount of bullets they're able to dhoot at you. And I ain't even talking about the bosses.

May 22nd, 2010, 4:12 PM
Ninja Gaiden Sigma, broke two controllers in frustration at that game. And I still havn't completed it.

My goodness ninja gaiden is the first game that I got to the end of the game and just stopped at the final boss it was just how do you beat this?!?!

Demon's Souls because not only are some of the phantoms and bosses hard but one small mistake when fighting means your death and your soul level going down.

May 27th, 2010, 5:14 AM
Resident evil 3 nemisis on hard...
