Metroid, Zelda and Super Mario all contain some of the hardest levels of all time. The whole World 8 of Super Mario Bros. 3 on NES is insane compared to today's games. VGZ made their very own top 10 of the hardest levels in video games.
Zelda and Metroid have always been kind of easy. These are some harsh points in gaming. Demon's Souls: 5-2 Pure Black World Tendency Resonance of Fate: Arena Devil May Cry 3: Dante Must Die Chessboard Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2: Ultimate Mission's BlazBlue: Score Attack God Hand: Pick something Soul Calibur 4: Tower of Souls Monster Hunter: Fleeting Shadow Dead Space 2: Hardcore
The water temple isn't as hard as everyone makes it out to be.
Speaking of difficulty, I played a shooter recently that didn't have any recharging health (initially) and it was amazing. It really made you need to avoid getting shot unlike all modern shooters where you detect where guys are by seeing which direction the blood on screen is pointing. Down with regenerating life!
Ninja gaiden on NES.. espesially last levels, that's too hard for me :) if not a emulator, I think I didn't finish it :) ant yes, first metroid's last boss too :) God hand isn't hard when you get used to it.. but one of the most fun games I've played :) sooo fun pased and with good jokes! :)
