Default Re: Hardest game ever?

Me and my friend played Battletoads for a whole day (from like noon to like 3 in the morning, with breaks of course), and we'd switch with another 2 friends every so often.

Let me tell you, those freaking snake levels, they just made them ridiculous. We didn't use any save states (only when we'd take breaks), just the in-game checkpoints, so you had to get past a level/room for it to save the checkpoints.

Oh and did I mention that we did finally manage to beat the snake levels after many hours, and we got to some bike on rails level which we couldn't beat at all after about an hour of trying.

Yea... when you finish the bike level(which is damn near impossible). You have to bring your weak pathetic little corpse up to kill some guy with a huge gun. Of course you only have one life left from dieing so much in the bike level.



BATTLETOADS NEEDS TO BE REMADE! Wow that franchise was so great. Battletoads and Double Dragon was my favorite of the series.

What's the hardest game you've ever played?

And it should be a game that's hard due to level design and hard enemies, not because the controls suck so you are always getting killed.
Metal Gear 2 for PS2.

for the final boss you had to kill 3 metal gears. freaking thing was hard as hell, but after a day of working at it, i finally got it

Shadow of the Beast for the sega genesis.

If anyone knows a person who has beaten this game, I'd love to meet them.

Quote:
The Sega Genesis port is considered by some to be one of the hardest video games of all time [2]. This is due to a sloppy conversion; the original had a 50Hz refresh rate, but all Sega Genesis games had to have a 60Hz refresh rate due to being made for NTSC televisions. Accordingly, the conversion team increased the refresh rate to 60Hz, but did not change the amount of time each frame remained on screen, making it run 16.7% faster than the original. Many gamers struggled to complete it after its release, but due to the incredibly high difficulty level very few achieved this goal until Sega revealed the invincibility cheat in January 1992.

Well that would explain some of the difficulty.

The Amiga version is also ridiculously hard without the speed problem.

There are all sorts of dead ends where you simply get stuck and cannot progress so you have to kill yourself.

EDIT:

Other games that are extremely hard are Blackthorne, Out of This World (Another World), and Flashback. I've beaten them but it was very difficult and Blackthorne and Another World really tested my patience a lot of times.
