NGamer descends through the various circles of hell, in search of the toughest games ever to star on a Nintendo platform. Abandon hope all ye that enter here...

The two hardest NES games to me were Super Ghouls and Ghosts and Time Lord. G&G made we want to fly to Japan and kill the programmers after i finally beat it and had to start over. Time Lord was difficult the whole game but the hardest part was the boss in the old west stage. I swear it takes an hour to kill that guy.

Try beating REmake on hard with invisible enemies.....actually it wasn't all that hard...but for most peeps it would be.

I am probably the only one who had this problem but I could never beat Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES

Definately not, so many people had trouble with that game. The angry video game nerd even does a video on how freakishly hard and unfair the game is.

Because you feel so ashamed and embarrassed for the talentless people who made them then remade them over and over.
