Some of the Hardest Levels, and Areas, in Gaming

They are either hated or loved by gamers. These phenomenons are often found scattered all over the gaming industry and have been known to truly set a game a part. Any gamer who has ever had a rage quit, thrown the controller at the television, or completely avoided a game as a result, knows that this is referring to the infamous “hard part.” That one instance in a game that is close to impossible and the only reason for its existences to frustrate the player. However, some games take this concept way to seriously, by forging levels and areas so hard that getting by one is like winning an Oscar. Some gamers fail to believe in these difficult and frustrating occurrences, so below are a few of the hardest levels in all of gaming that are hard wired to make you want to through your entire system into the street and run over it with a monster truck. (Contra, Culture, DayZ, Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo: Combat Evolved, Industry, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)

I know I have a report on this article, but considering I wrote it I don't think I need to make the changes that the report insists.

One of the most difficult/frustrating modern FPSers has to be Metro 2033 on hardest difficulty. Crossing the bridge in War (especially last push) and the escort mission is just annoying (first time through especially). Another good game though--just one that can be frustrating at times.

A good list though and not-so fond memories ;)

The end levels of Ninja Gaiden (NES). I'll never beat it.

Hmmm... Hasn't occured to me but I can probably find the ending on YouTube. I'm about to find some long lost childhood resolution, methinks.

Airwolf on the spectrum was the hardest game ever made closely followed by back to the future part 3 on the megadrive.

The people who made airwolf I think ran out of money and had to release the game (I think not 100% certain) so the so they just made an impassable wall you just crashed into.

And BTTF part 3 on the MD I used to challenge people to beat the first level when I worked in a games shop and not one person did it( other versions of the game I did first time.

I'm surprised no one ever mentions in these articles the difficulty of getting the 242nd star in Super Mario Galaxy 2. I've played the game up and through the 241st star twice now, and as many times as I've tried, I JUST CAN'T GET THAT LAST FREAKIN' STAR!!!! :P

I didn't even think of that when I was writing this article, but I agree that the last star is extremely hard to acquire.

Shrine of Storms in Demon's Souls was tough on my first playthrough
