Most Difficult Games Ever

Smashed TV. Broken controllers. Sawed Handhelds. Scratched Discs. Burned Cartridges. Drilled Consoles. High-Blood Pressure. And a Splitting Headache. These are the things that would happen when a game has tough enemies, ridiculous boss fights, no checkpoints and limited saving options.

This is a list of all the games that I find them to be extremely difficult. I know there are other hard and brutal games such as Zelda II: Link's Adventure, Ghosts n Goblins, Contra, etc. But I haven't played those games before so they shouldn't be in this list just yet. I also didn't put Devil May Cry 3 because I played the Special Edition and not the original one.

Difficulty Levels:

  • Hard
  • Very Hard
  • Insane
  • Headache

Good list but I have to disagree with SotC being on it. The game as a whole is quite easy. Time trials are probably the only difficult thing.

You should put alien hominid in this. That game is SOOOO hard

@ToxikPandaKoi: I've never tried Alien Hominid before. Will give it a go someday.

you should add the neo geo viewpoint to this list. it's amazingly breathtakingly alarming frightening scary difficult.

Been finding StarCraft waaay harder than C&C. Maybe it's just my taste in RTS, but SC campaign maps just boiled down to overly long, grinding battles of attrition against cheap AI.

So glad Demon's Souls was nowhere to be found on this list.

@Abyssfull Agreed.

@Abyssfull: I haven't played Demon's Souls. Is it really difficult?

It's a tough game, but nowhere near as difficult as its reputation built upon. Certainly not a game I'd string into a ''most difficult games'' list.

i find demons souls and dark souls hard alone, but easy together.

hitman games are not that hard if u know what your doing. they give u a nice challenge. but can be difficult, if u dont have experience in them.

I think that the latest king of difficult game is Saving Raylene
