Target Earth
R-Type
Action Fighter


Back when I was young we didn't have wussy things like "continue" and panzy ass things like "save game." In my day when the last boss of the last level killed you, you had to go and start over from the very beginning of the game.

We got thick callouses on our thumbs and got bad grades and we liked it that way!

I remember a game called Target Earth for the Sega Genesis. I remember it being the hardest game I ever played. An adult cannot beat this game. Only a child with a pure heart of gaming can defeat this game.

Another tough one was Action Fighter for the Sega Master System.
Also R-Type was nearly impossible. I cheated by pausing each second to get passed the rain of enemy fire.

Ninja Gaiden on Xboxis relatively very difficult. I mean, who the hell puts a very hard area of many monsters (on which you waste near all your health potions) only in the next area of the game to pit you against this hard ass skeleton dragon boss.

LOL! Battletoads!!!!!!

As for me the last level of Far Cry and the stairs in the "last" level of STALKER... if i did not get killed by the AI, the radiation would kill me... I finally managed to get through it somehow and the 2nd time through the that place (2nd time through the game) was much easier as I was much better prepared. Also GTR, GTR2 and RBR can be extremely hard and stressful when you are trying to lower your time.

Oh man... how about Sega Master System games? So many of those were insanely hard.

Shinobi... irritating

Alien Syndrome... aggravating

Thunderblade... infuriating

Global Defense... nearly impossible

Zillion 2: Tri-Formation... IMPOSSIBLE

Still, the system had a lot of really cool games that played nothing like nintendo games.

Battle Toads was maddening, but seriously, give Kid Icarus a go before declaring BT the ultimate nightmare.

My list would read:

Ghosts N Goblins C64 version
Phantom of the Asteroid C64
The Last V8 C64

Mastertronic games were notoriously hard (the 2nd and 3rd on my list).
