Recently I heard the Megaman 7 remix of Ghost N Goblins.  Along with it came memories of the HARDEST game ever.  I don't even think I beat the first stage.  What is a game you've played that was comparable(okay, bad word to use with this game) or at least difficult enough for you to suppress the memory of it?

I've finished I Wanna Be The Guy with no real issues and I never got frustrated.

Can't say I find there to be particularly many games that are difficult enough to discourage me from playin' 'em without some kind of stupid design flaws bein' involved.

Touhou. Probably 07 - Perfect Cherry Blossom. That whole series is insane.

Hard or Lunatic. I'm pretty damn good at arcade danmaku games, and most Touhou games can give me a run for my money on Normal mode.

Hard. I could do very hard if I felt like it but I'm too occupied with other games now.

I would have to say Fester's Quest for the NES. If you die, you start over from the beginning. The only difference is that any bosses you beat stay gone.

I gotta say, Gaiares for the Genesis is pretty friggin difficult, even if you cheat and use the T-BRASTER. The third level is damn near impossible without precise pinpoint perfection at dodging traps. Having the best weapon in the game is meaningless when the level itself is what kills you.

And while I'm on the subject of Genesis shumps, Thunder Force. Enough said.

Mmmm, Gaiares.

...

Third level is the one with all the satellites at the beginning, right?

That's the second level. Third one is the hyperspace looking one.

I've actually gotten better at that game over the years. I used to just be able to count the number of times I even got THAT far on one hand.

In the shmup genre, I'd say Radio Zonde and it's sequel, Hellsinker, are the hardest I've played. In Radio Zonde, the last boss is so inasane that you'll need every one of your infinite lives to beat her.

In other stuff, um... I'd say Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, because Nintendo seems to have forgotten the definition of the words "control scheme," and instead made the game control entirely with the stylus. This is equivalent to playing Zelda with a mouse.

I found Actraiser as one of the hardest games that I've played. It's still great, just tough.

Actraiser. Where God getting his ass kicked is merely the start of the adventure.

So... it's Diablo?


I nominate Tempest 2000.
