    currently knack on very hard mode, the checkpoints and enemies are unforgiving and cheap.

    Life isn't a game unless you yolo.

    Also, I would say the most difficult game I've ever played is Contra for the NES or Battletoads. Something about them old NES games are just so cruel.

    Super Ghouls N Ghosts on the SNES. Months and months of hard work memorizing attack patterns only to finish it and be told I had to go through the entire game again to actually get the ending.....fuck that!

    So many hard games.
    Battletoads, Contra, both hard.
    But for some reason the first Ninja Turtles game for the NES broke my childhood sanity.
    I played Baroque for a while and thought it was the hardest game I ever played, until I realized that game just sucks.

    - Megaman Zero collection on DS (F*** this game)
    - Etrian odyssey 1-2 (3-4 are easier but still hard)
    - Super ghouls and ghosts (F*** this game too)

    ^ The only ones i can think of right now that made me ragequit because i got fed up of dieing. Im sure more will come back to me but these stand out as games i hate with a passion.

    Hard to say the hardest cause there is alot of titles I've never beaten. So I'll have to choose between my 2 hardest\fav shmup titles for the Sega Genesis. Gaiares being the hardest, I've actullay come close to beating Wings of Wor, made to the last level before getting slaughtered.

    Gaiares
    Wings of Wor

    R-type on the SNES was damn difficult back in the day. Ghouls n' ghosts wins pretty much hands down though. That shit was tricky.
    Animaniacs on the SNES was also pretty hard. I haven't touched in years but back in the day I remember hating it with a passion

    I dunno, but Cave Story on Hard mode gives many games a run for their money. Dat Blood-Stained Sanctuary.
    Megaman Zero Collection on Hard is pretty insane as well, especially if you want S ranks. Oh, and there are some maps on osu that still seem impossible and I've been playing that shit for a year.

    The Adventures of Bayou Billy.... The game is a challenge just to get to like level 3.

    I am excluding games I was not able to complete due to bugs...

    Impossible Mission on the Atari 7800.... I love the game and still play it from time to time but I play the fixed version via emulation lol

    *On the whole Contra or Battletoads thing, those games are hard but at least doable, and not nearly as hard as Ninja Gaiden on the NES. Hmm special note on Battletoads.... The game is impossible playing it 2 players.... if you want to beat it, play it alone!!! lol Of course I don't know if I could beat any of these games anymore. I am pretty sure I could still do Contra as long as I used the Konami code for a crutch lol Toads would make me cry again for sure. Ninja Gaiden I refuse to touch again. I still have bite marks on my NES controller from it. yes I bit it... lol

    Hard as in reaction times?
    Hard as in memory test?
    Hard as in logical deduction type things?

    Am I allowed to include either hacks or things I did on top of a game (play without using ? move and the like)? Going further this could also mean high score vs just beating the level.
    Do games with bad controls count for the reaction times one? I have played some nasty ports over the years (*recalls tetris machine in the pub and shudders*) and if I had played the originals all would have been fine.

    Alas this is rapidly heading to "what is a game?" territory so I think I will have to leave it there.
