10 Games That Will Kick Your Ass

Cheat Code Central's Jenni Lada writes: "Many people lament the loss of “Nintendo hard” games. But if you’re willing to look for them, you’ll find that not all the insanely challenging games are way back in the NES era. If recent years are any indication, developers understand that we actually do want games that kick our asses. We want to be tested. We want to throw our controllers through our HDTVs. So if you need to be brought down a few pegs, you should spend some time with the ten following games." (Dark Souls, Demon's Souls, DmC: Devil May Cry, Fallout: New Vegas, I Wanna Be The Guy, PC, PS3, Super Meat Boy, Xbox 360)

Good list.

I would throw Steel Battalion in there. Understand i'm not one of those infected by the poison and I have and had no issues with the controls at all.

The same people that made Demon Souls made SB and it shows. I think it was to far of a step forward for the mainstream core because its immersion level is so i makes the player have to really concentrate. As I go back through it I get even more impressed by lots of things in that game. Sad it gets such a bum rap.

Note: Hardcore mode did not and does not make Fallout harder.

It just adds a food/drink component, which I guess you could say is harder, but it's not in the same "dimension" as the main game. It doesn't make gunplay scarier, or anything--it just means you need to be cognizant of your inventory.
