GameDynamo - "The other day I was getting owned by the computer in a video game and almost threw my Xbox 360 out the window. In a flash of clarity, I found myself wondering just how hard is the hardest video game, and which one it was. "
Ninja Gaiden and Metroid on NES weren't hard at all. Replace those with Spelunkner and Milon's Secret Castle.
DOOM II wasn't really hard either Demons souls isn't hard either you just have to play defensively and it's unforgiving of mistakes...
Doom II and Contra are not hard. Those were two games I use to beat just to pass the time. Gaiares on the Mega Drive and Legendary Axe on the PC Engine now those were hard. Using The Tau Race in Dawn of War is hard (well for me it is)
Anyone remember a PS1 game called Sentinel Returns? I had a demo of it when I was a kid and could never figure out what I was meant to do. Played it the other day for old times sake and still have no clue. You build creepy looking towers is all I can work out. Fade to Black was quite hard too. NGS and Demon Souls are really hard, but can be beaten eventually with practice and determination.
I have to point out one glaring mistake with the article. Well not with the article itself, one with one of the pictures. That photo of Ninja Gaiden from 1988 or whatever is from the arcade game, not the NES/SNES games.
Older games was tougher and every boss battle was something epic.Defeating a boss meant something.Now boss battles are just an afterthought.I kinda remember Lufia 2,maybe, where you have to reach a tower top which has something like 20 odd floors.If if fail once,you're back to ground floor.
Demon's Souls was the only game on there with difficulty not necessarily being a twitch-fest, but a game that required an immense amount of strategy to beat the game. Its not "hard" like the previous games on this list...it is "hard" because it requires players to use not only reflexes but intelligence as well.
Demon Souls was an amazing game. idk what people mean when they say the game is "hard". I thought they were saying the combat was hard, it wasn't for me. in fact I loved the combat mechanic (mostly). what I found "Hard" about the game was some bosses and gathering souls. god, if anything that gathering souls reminds me of is trying to level up in Maplestory after lvl40.
