Anyone want to throw out some games that are just absurdly difficult? Here are some of the one's that come to mind:

1. TMNT - NES. Who gets to the end in that game?
2. Ghosts n' Goblins - NES. Who gets to the third level in that game?
3. Ninja Gaiden 2 - NES.
4. Metal Gear - NES.
5. Out of this World - SNES
6. Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels - NES.

    1. TMNT - NES. Who gets to the end in that game?

    I agree that the last level is terribly frustrating. Those damn flying guards... man!

    2. Ghosts n' Goblins - NES. Who gets to the third level in that game?

    Beat it, sorta. It took me about two hours (as well as almost eighteen years of practice) to get through those six whole levels. Then you get the dreaded "Room of Illusion" and you have to go through the frickin' game again. -_-

    3. Ninja Gaiden 2 - NES.

    Beat it, you should replace it with Ninja Gaiden, which I also beat. Ninja Gaiden II's easier than Ninja Gaiden.

    4. Metal Gear - NES.

    Didn't play much. I like the MSX version better anyway. Also,

    FUCKM E1111
    11111 11111
    11111

    ^ That li'l code right there's what caused Nintendo to start removing vowels in their passwords.

    5. Out of this World - SNES

    *Genesis' version's death music plays*

    6. Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels - NES.

    People who think this game's difficult obviously hasn't played enough games in their life.

    Some examples of ridiculously hard games would include:

    Adventures of Lolo 3 - For people with an above average intelligence ONLY!

    Contra III: The Alien Wars (Hard Mode.) - The US version requires you to beat it on Hard to get to the actual ending. Good luck! I eventually made it, though, and it's well worth it when the game calls you a "Video champion."

    Conan: The Mysteries of Time - Not only do you need patience, but you also have to have the sanity to play through this crapola. Do yourself a favor: Don't play it.

    Darius Twin - No continues, no extra lives, 'nuff said. On the bright side, you get to keep the powerups you get.

    Life Force/Salamander (NES) - The only game that actually made me use the Konami Kode. That's saying something.

    Shinobi (PS2) - I can't imagine going through the game on harder difficulties.

    Shining Force Neo - Prepare to hear Max shout "No way!" a lot as you trudge through this game before seeing the Game Over sceen for the 180th or so time.

            I finished Out of This World on the Amiga. The 3DO version kicked my ass, though.

            I finished Sewer Shark several times on both the Sega CD and 3DO, it really wasn't THAT hard once you got the hang of the timing system for turns (somewhat Dragon's Lair-like) and made sure you kept your ship charged up for the tougher battles near the end. Loved it. A cheesy sci-fi B-movie you could play. :D

            Totally agree on those old school NES games mentioned...hard as hell, all of 'em.

            Anyone ever see that god-awful Battletoads cartoon? They only did a pilot episode, and it was pretty easy to see why it didn't get picked up. That could have been SUCH a good cartoon, I mean the friggin' game was basically a cartoon already (with the exaggerated special moves and such)!

              "Banjo Kazooie" (N64), not only is it hard, but it is confusing, well in my opinion. :roll:

                let's not forget mushihimesama
                metal gear still stands as my favourite game where I can't last for more than 3 seconds. And mario bros the lost levels isn't too hard.

                    Most of the NES games, imo, were difficult to get through. I even find the original Legends of Zelda game hard and more challenging compared to the ones after it.

                    Oh, and I did find Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels a difficult game to play. I was never all that great at the original SMB game, so the Lost Levels didn't help matters much. lol

                        Target Earth for Sega was pretty much impossible without having the cheat code.

                          Atomic Robo Kid if fun to play, but it's hard as nails. All that applying to the arcade orginal. The PC Engine Atomic Robo Kid Special is some how easier, despite the levels being rearranged. What was UPL thinking? They made their conversion themselves...

                          (The Genesis, Amiga, and Commodore 64 conversions are by other companies. Genesis converted by Treco, and Amiga and Commodore 64 by Activison.)

                            no way, pal. playing this with luigi is ridiculous. Contra III is crazy.

                              The Lost Levels are difficult, but shouldn't make a short list of ridiculously hard games.

                                Silver Surfer was a pretty hard game. Also Battletoads that one was hard as well, I could never beat it.

                                  Yeah the magazines said that too! Professional gamers and reviewers had to use the code... Athena on Nes also!

                                    fair enough. agreed.

                                    captain planet for the nes was hard as well.

                                        Silver Surfer (NES) - As a SHMUP, of course it's going to be exceedingly difficult. No surprise! But Silver Surfer's a big target, he gets hit a LOT! Cool music, though.
