Remove Contra. Add Chakan.

Contra was hard with just 3 lives.

Not really. Definitely not one of the most infuriatingly difficult games of all time.

Go home, dude. You're drunk. Contra was definitely hard. Play it without the Konami code or save states.

Cuphead is far less worthy of this list than Contra. It's hard, but can still be beaten in single digit days.

God forbid someone has a different opinion or maybe can handle a difficult game, right? What's wrong with some of you? If I told you I've gone through Contra with the Konami code but never lost more than 3 lives, would that make any difference to you?

DarXyde28d ago

Are you actually taking offense to me saying "go home, you're drunk"? Are you serious?

Fine, I'll make it palatable for your sensibilities...

I, and perhaps many others who remember how difficult classics like Contra are (and including Contra) strongly disagree with your exclusion of Contra from this list. It's arguably am objectively challenging title.

By the way, that question is likely rhetorical, but if you were to say you used the code and beat it without losing 3 lives, I'd call you a liar, of course!

Clearly this person never had an NES.

KwietStorm28d ago

Why do you say that? There's NES games on the list.

No Ninja Gaiden? Seriously? Ninja Gaiden Black is harder than Dark Souls.

Ninja gaiden 2 was harder for the wrong reasons

I hated karate kid but that game made me curse so much at the age of 12.

The boss fights were really terrible lol

I found Cuphead more tedious and boring than difficult.
