Top 10 Hardest Games

Pinpointing the hardest games ever is all relative. Some of you might still be puzzling over how to turn off the waterfall in Monkey Island 2, 19 years after it was released. Others might be eternally grateful EA added a two-button mode to FIFA.

Ninja Gaiden is the hardest game I get frustrated when playing it. LOL

lovestospoodge2904d ago

totally agree, ng:b was freakin impossible.
was DMC3 really that hard? i mean it was awesome, but difficult?

ThanatosDMC2904d ago (Edited 2904d ago )

DMC3 was hard. DMC3:SE was dumbed down from it's original normal difficulty.

Anyway, Shinobi i would say was harder than Ninja Gaiden and DMC mainly due to lack of moves and retarded way to kill enemies. It's almost like a retro game.

The Wii game that i found that was hardest was Mario Sunshine. I didnt know if i wanted to stop playing it, where im suppose to go next, or how fun is it to spray water on anything and anyone i met.

I never understood how some people had the hardest time against Maneater in Demons Soul's. I always thought it was the Flamelurker that was the hardest of the bunch. I had to kill him naked with Longsword +2 on my first go.

despair2904d ago (Edited 2904d ago )

sad this is that I believe that the original ninja gaiden for xbox was harder than the black edition. But normal difficulty was not hard other than the sometimes cheap Alma.

WhatARump2904d ago

Yea I didn't find MGS THAT difficult, amazing game though.

I found demon's souls really easy uptil NG+ where I pretty much get 1 hitted. People often over exaggerate Demon's Soul's difficulty.

JoySticksFTW2904d ago

Respect the game and it becomes very manageable and fun

I'd say Ninja Gaiden, because I f'n REFUSED to turn down the difficulty. Wasn't about to let the game insult me and call me a ninja dog and stuff

I would love to find someone that actually beat that game on the hardest difficulty. I'm sure it's been done but until I find someone who actually has and can prove it, I will call the task impossible.

They also could have put Ninja Gaiden 2 up there as well because that game is freaking hard too.

BlackTar1872904d ago (Edited 2904d ago )

how would one prove it? the costumes maybe? to me DMC3 on hard was almost impossible went thru a controller just beating that game. tore my x button up to nothing.

Im only asking cuz i think i did im almost positive but i would have to find it and my xbox to show anyone and then what would i do. I am interested myself now i can maybe upload a pic if im telling the truth if you can tell me what criteria i would need to prove it

BeaArthur2903d ago

Well if you did congrats, that's impressive. Although there is no way to prove it I guess because there weren't Trophies or Achievements back when that game came out.

FACTUAL evidence2904d ago (Edited 2904d ago )

I honestly think any megaman under X5 was extremely hard.

GodsHand2903d ago

I would say the standard Megaman Games were more difficult them the X series. X2 was extreamly easy for me.

Yi-Long2904d ago

... but it was never 'frustrating' to me. It was difficult at times (especially the beginning when you still have a small health bar and level 1 weapons), but it always seemed FAIR, and it was always FUN, so it just made you try again and again untill you would progress a bit further.

I certainly don't consider myself a great gamer (not even all that good btw), but as long as a game is fun, fair, and offers a bit of a challenge, I like to take up that challenge :)

Timesplitter142904d ago

Well I haven't played all those games but I can tell you without doubt that Battletoads is harder than Ninja Gaiden Black and Demon's Souls combined.

It's just beyond human skill

Dac2u2904d ago

Agreed, Battletoads was insanely hard. After weeks of playing, I was able to get to the level Terra Tubes without too much trouble(using warps of course). But, I rarely managed to beat that level. After, that the game just gets harder. Later on, when emulators came out, I was finally able to beat the game using save states, but damn, there's zero room for error in the later levels.

AKS2904d ago

Shadow of the Beast 2 would send most "hard" games crying home to their mothers. It was beyond belief at times. Games used to be MUCH harder.

kunit22c2904d ago

Demon's Souls is on here! That game is seriously hard! one of the hardest games this gen, I still havn't beat it!

gunnerforlife2903d ago

No love to the Megaman games?

hamoor2903d ago

where is silver surfer on the NES????

GodsHand2903d ago

OMG, Silver Surfer got the best of me. I never did finish that game.

Gun_Senshi2904d ago

Ninja Gaiden SNES are way harder then NG Black

Hardest Game Ever:

Paper Boy

Admit It, you never got past Wednesday in Paper Boy

Marceles2904d ago

Ninja Gaiden on NES was even harder...Paper Boy actually wasn't hard, it just depends on how many subscriptions you messed up and made all the houses red with angry people lol. I used to always beat Paperboy though, that was one of my favorite games growing up.

Pennywise2904d ago (Edited 2904d ago )

Paper boy was hard, but there is a difference between hard difficulty and bad game design aka BattleToads!

despair2904d ago (Edited 2904d ago )

god i loved paper boy :)

table2904d ago (Edited 2904d ago )

paper boy was one of the first games i ever played alongside marble madness and zelda. Papaer Boy was difficult but I always found marble madness to be the hardest. I don't think I ever completed marble madness.

I bet the AVGN will know some real tough games.

TANUKI2904d ago

Shinobi for sure.. that game made me scream FFUUUU! lol

The problem with hard games is, I usually give up after 2-4 attempts, so I tend to forget my frustrations. However, my most recent hard game has to be.... Call of Duty World at War... though, I'd say it's more cheap than hard.


peeps2904d ago

Ninja Gaiden 2 just gets really cheap towards the end. every ninja and his dog has multi firing rocket launches ffs, 1 mistake and u spend several attempts getting off the floor before being killed.

not to mention it has tough bosses that after defeating explode killing you if you were too close, but chances are you were too close cus u needed to be to attack it!!!
