"As gaming begins it slippery descent into the eighth generation with the upcoming dawn of the Wii U, it's a time of reflection for many of us as we hark back to the golden eras of gaming.

What an incredibly lazy... did you call this an article? I't just a series of screen shots... no discussion of 'why' the games are difficult? Shameless...

Most people don't actually read the articles written for top 10 lists anyway, they just get the list. Especially when the ass-hat running the site spreads everything across 10 pages.

They spread it across 10 pages so they can gain more revenue from ads. Avoid articles like this at all costs.

According to their updates some of their readers are dead. It's probably due to clicking through so many pages.

Lmao I just saw that and thought WTF, i'm guessing they mean 'Dear' rather than 'Dead'.

Bimkoblerutso1898d ago

Yeah, I'm not clicking through that many pages just so you can get a few extra hits.

I'm not sure if this list is in order, but there's no way you could put Ninja Gaiden Sigma ahead of MM9 or Super Meat Boy. Heck, where's Super Hexagon?

Captain Qwark 91897d ago

id agree with sigma, trials, smb, mm9, and demon/dark souls.

never played the rest. also id like to note that despite their difficulty, easily some of the best games this gen too

Donnieboi1897d ago

Where is Catherine? It was so hard that they had to add an easier mode, and it was STILL hard.

Fateful_Knight1898d ago

That first screen is from Ninja Gaiden 3, not Sigma.
