Re: Gametrailers: Top 10 Most Difficult Games

I think if we made a list for "Top 10 words used in this thread" then 'brutal' would be #1 XD.

Jokes aside, yes, Lost Levels is a challenge of the gods. There is a jump on 2-2 (or maybe it was 2-3) that I have still not figured out how to do reliably despite owning it on Super Mario All Stars on SNES, Super Mario Bros Deluxe on my GBC, and the original FC disk system download for Virtual Console.

Re: Gametrailers: Top 10 Most Difficult Games

Some of those Mario hacks are beyond brutal, I'll sometimes sit there for 2 minutes using the rewind function on my emulator to complete a single jump.

That is quite a challenging game, I really hated the poisonous mushrooms, and the fact that, in the Famicom Disk System version, they didn't really look all that different from the good mushrooms. Plenty of the jumps were next to impossible too.

In Lost Levels, I got all the way to world 8-3. Couldn't figure out how to get out of that castle.

Re: Gametrailers: Top 10 Most Difficult Games

I remember another good challenge:
F1 Circus'92 (PC Engine) - A top down perspective racer, excellent. I simply love it, but never won a race. Once I got third place, because it was raining and Brazilian drivers goes well in the rain, it's traditional. Just one move wrong - you lost.

It is very hard, get your facts straight people:

Super mario Bros.: not hard
Megaman 2: not hard
Battletoads: hard
I agree. I'm not in the Battletoads is easy camp. My point was people talk about how hard Battletoads Coin-Op is, but they are playing using one credit so they think it's much harder than the NES version. My point was if the NES version was limited to three lives it would be just as hard as the Coin-Op version.

Battletoads has always been a brutal series, and I love it for it!!!

I know Battletoads isn't easy, it just isn't the hardest game in existence, it is actually of a manageable difficulty if you are willing to die a few times.

I don't think Battletoads is the hardest ever either, but I think it is very challenging.

I think these top 10/20 lists often list games that are famous instead of games that might actually be the hardest, best, most fun, etc. If the list was made up of just 1945k III, Mushihimesama Futari, and Radiant Silvergun, hardcore gamers would get it, but the average gamer would have never even heard of the game. I think a lot of these lists should be called something like, "Hardest Game Made that Everyone Has Heard of" or something similar.

Personally, I don't think Contra for NES should even be on the list at all since it's not even in the same difficulty league as Battletoads, Ninja Gaiden, Castlevania, Ghouls and Ghosts, or Shinobi. I would have put something like Guardian Legend above Contra any day.

Re: Gametrailers: Top 10 Most Difficult Games

I disagree with you Winnebagel, how many times did you failed to make it past the waterfall
with just those 3 lives?

But I think they should have choose Super C, that was much harder.

Maybe I am a bad judge since I have played the game so much. My brother and I used to play it to see how many times in a row we could beat it on just one life. We did play it a lot. Maybe that's why it seems so easy?

I agree that Super C is harder. The bosses in particular are more difficult than in NES Contra.

I still enjoy Contra a lot either way.

Talking to you about it makes me want to play Super C again.

The hardest game ever

When I donate I will make a contest. But in the end the contestants have to master the most impossible game ever. I want you to post your reply on what game do you think is more impossible than: Battletoads, 1943 Kai, Ghosts n' Goblins, Spelunker, Contra, Anteater, and Batman.

Rules: The game can't be hard just because of suckish controls or just choosing the Hardest difficulty in a game. The game must be impossible during gameplay. The game must also have an ending. And finally the game can't be a bad game, for example: Cheetah men II.

re: The hardest game ever

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Zombie Raid

Lots of the Coin-Op games are near impossible on one quarter. They just weren't really designed to be played that way.

Might be best to narrow your search to console games.

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Kid Chameleon

---------- Post added at 03:29 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:21 PM ----------

Some of these games might not seem too hard at first but after you get a few levels in they start to ramp up the difficulty and completely beating them would be a big challenge. I haven't played them enough to know for sure if the challenge is greater than Battletoads but I think they might.

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Bank Panic
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Battlantis
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Binary Land
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Dragon Crystal
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Fatal Labyrinth
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Flashback: The Quest for Identity
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Gain Ground
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Lode Runner
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Marble Madness
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Moai Kun
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Ninja Kun
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Rampart
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Speed Attack!
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Taloons Great Adventure Mystery Dungeon

---------- Post added at 03:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:29 PM ----------

Also some of the hacks are incredibly hard.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Faster, Harder, More Challenging Q*bert (prototype)
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Ghosts 'N Goblins Hardtype
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Super Mario Bros. 3 Challenge
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Super Mario Bros. 3 Ultimate
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Super Mario Bros. Challenge
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Zelda - Timecrisis: Fall of the Moon

Re: The hardest game ever

I would think that Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels is the most difficult game ever. Even playing it on Super Mario All-Stars is darn near impossible. I died maybe five hundred times on its world D-3. And so, I am playing the original to truly test my skills.

I tried for a high score in Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels here on Retro Uprising, but needless to say I never got to the first castle. If you're looking for a perfectionist's challenge, you've got to play it! If you're not able to be online all that much though, get it for Virtual Console on Wii.

This makes me want to go at it again--mamamia.

Re: The hardest game ever

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Solstice - Might not be hard but it was for me.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Starflight - Seems like a straight forward sci fi RPG but it is pretty damn difficult if you don't know what to do.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Loopz - Another game that seems easy but it's really not. I dare someone to set the high score.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Shadowrun - great game and difficult. The genesis version is also great but imo it's not nearly as hard.

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Heroquest - I couldn't even move nevermind progress in this game. Kong said it's playable but I have my doubts. I think it's the most brutal game I've ever seen or heard of.
