A lot of games that we play today, as exciting and aesthetically pleasing as they are, have long abandoned the recipe for hard, skillful work. You know what I’m talking about, the days of Mario, Battletoads, Double Dragon, Ninja Gaiden, etc. They aren’t the prettiest games known to man but that isn’t what they were known for either. (Unless you grew up with them, in which case, they were the neatest use of creativity yet!). So Valid Gaming did some memory searching and a little bit of googling (Urban Dictionary re-enforces the ability to use made-up but awesome words) as well to compile a short list of five “Nintendo Hard” games that frustrated gamers all over the world. Now you too can share in their pain!
