What is the hardest game(s) you ever played?

Mine is Ninja Gaiden, I was foolish enough to rent it and think that I could pull it off in a week, got stuck on the first boss then quit...and also an old NES game that I can´t remember the name of, you played as a knight against ghost and skeletons and stuff, got stuck on the dragon at the end of the third level :P

Touhou series, no questions asked. Play insane mode and you'll cry blood.

Easy question for me: Ninja Gaiden 1-3 on NES. Those were hardcore games.
I remember uttering my first curse word as a child was on the last stage when the birds kept knocking me into the pits during my jumps.

Some people I know here in Japan are super into that, and I just nod and wince in pain when I see them play it

Ghost and Goblins or whatever it was called.

It's well known as being one of the hardest games ever.

Yeah, Ninja Gaiden is insanely hard. Back then it made me rage because the camera and the whole dial-a-combo madness didn't help either.

Thank god I borrowed it from a friend and never actually bought it.

I have not played NG, but my hardest is probably NG2. That game made my brain bleed as i boiled with frustration. I have never screamed at a game before i played NG2 on mentor.

I'm playing NG2 at the moment, it seems more bastardish that the first one, but maybe that's just because I haven't played the first one since I beat it.

Honorable mention goes to Breath Of Fire Five, a game made ridiculously hard but a fundamentally idiotic structure that requires you to go so far in the game, and re-start again and again, giving yourself an experience boost at the start of the game each time.

Batman returns for the Atari LYNX. Seriously, either the game designers knew nothing about game design, or they meant it as a cruel joke.

I've gotten through about eight screens of I Wanna be the Guy.
But on a more traditional gaming level, Ghosts and Goblins. I was never able to finish that.

I would say Tetris, its impossible for my brain to process after a certain point. Another choice for me is Call of Duty 4 on Veteran; thats because the game becomes so cheap at that point.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma, or Viewtiful Joe on the GC. The difficultly leap from kid to adult difficulty was immense. And one of the last levels is to beat the 4 previous bosses in a row without dying as well as an extra one. They're hard enough on their own, but put together it was nigh-on-fucking-impossible.

My most frustrating experience was probably getting the big boss emblem on MGS4. Enemies can hear you from about 10 miles away if you do anything other than sneak. I had to reset so many times.

My hardest game that I ever played would probably be Ninja Gaiden 2 for the NES. Although the last time that I did beat this I was about six years old.

Driver 2. The car chases were extremely brutal to do. You had to be near perfect.

Ninja Gaiden or DMC 3.  The Call of Duty games on veteran were pretty insane too but ninja gaiden is just nuts.

In my teenage years I found a lot of games hard. But I was also doing class-A drugs at the time, so the idea of even completing a level seemed pointless when you could run against a wall for 30-odd minutes and giggle.

Uhm...a lot. But the first one that jumps to my mind is Trauma Center. Maybe because I'm playing the squeal right now...
