You don't believe in using 30 lives to beat Contra, or nabbing the warp whistle in Super Mario Bros. 3. You possess the necessary skills to avoid spiked pits, topple bosses and slaughter players foolish enough to cross your path. That said, you probably play one or all of these hardcore games. If not, prepare for the ultimate challenge."
