What’s the hardest game of the generation?

While Ninja Gaiden 2 and Demon’s/Dark Souls are the obvious shouts, I’d argue the case for Halo 3 on Legendary being one of the tougher nuts to crack this generation (when played solo at least) and, let’s be honest, COD: World at War on Veteran is a complete pain in the ass (how the hell can the Japanese afford so many grenades?).

Absolutely! IMO, My hardest games this gen were:

-Hard Corps: Uprising
-Demon's Souls
-Dark Souls
-Mega Man 9
-Mega Man 10
-Metal Gear Online (it was the hardest to master (yet most rewarding) multiplayer to play)
-MG Rising Reveangance (not a fan, but it IS challenging!)
-Ninja Gaiden 1 & especially NG 2
-Tokyo Jungle (especially when using herb-eating animals only)

Looking for old-school style of hardcore gaming? These games won't disappoint!

Not sure about Demon's Souls, it more had a learning curve but most fights once learned became easy and more often than not every fight had a "cheap" way to win. When I did my 3rd play-through for the Platinum trophy I got through the entire game in 3 hours, 0 deaths.

That said I have nothing to add to the list, I generally don't play anything besides RPG's. Catherine was probably the hardest game I played this gen, I'd call it harder than Demon's Souls.

You can add Dead Space 1 to 3.
Hardcore mode is hell and you pay a lot on small mistakes.
I don't remember the hardcore mode challenge for 1 but I'll tell you about the rest.
For 2, there's no check points, you start the game from zero and you only get 3 saves for the entire campaign, enemies are aggressive and resources are less.
For 3, you start the game from zero, you can save as much as you want but on death your save will be reset to the start of the game. Resources are less, and enemy will brutalize you.

Halo solo was simple for me, but [email protected] was a pain. Took me so long to beat it on veteran. Complete insanity with all them grenades

Ha I remember those damn grenades. Man they were infuriating.

Of generation 7? Well, for me that would have to be Metal Gear Rising. I've never played any other game that was as fun as it was frustrating due to its difficulty.
