1) Battle Toads. circa 1991
Can’t really argue that. It WAS hard. you could even play with a friend but that never seemed to help. In fact, chances are you just accidentally killed each and had to start over.
2) QWOP. circa 2008
YUP. One key for each part of the leg to run…..never again.
3) Demon’s Soul. circa 2009
Never played it. Looks kinda like a God of War – Assassins creed love child…maybe. According to Yahoo! you will die a LOT. Deaths aside, they also claim it’s a pretty good game.
4) Contra. circa 1987
Another platform for the yester years. Awesome graphics and 8 bit sound what’s not to love! Can’t we just call ALL the games between 85-92 HARD. I mean if you didn’t jump JUST right….I’m getting anxiety just thinking about it.
5) The Oregon Trail. circa 1974-1985
WHAAAAAT?!?! This wasn’t hard!! I even avoided shooting any rabbits. What kind of dumb imbecile thinks this is hard. Make yourself the doctor and you’re set.
6) The Heist. circa 2011
Ugh I HATE puzzle games. I hate games with puzzles IN them. I have NO patience for puzzles. Even that REALLY easy puzzle in the first quest in Skyrim where you have to pick Snake, Bear, wombat….whatever…..I panicked and before even looking around at the answer that was RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME I called my friend and begged for the answer. (yes that means I did not google it first).
7) Super Mario Bros: The Lost Level. circa 1986
Pffft….they were all hard! I was 5
8) Trials HD: circa 2009
This game looks kinda dumb.
9) Ghosts ‘n Goblins. circa 1985
Falls under my blanket late eighties – early nineties rule.
10) I Wanna Be The Guy. circa 2007
WHAT IS THIS?? This looks fun….who cares if it’s hard.
So what about MY list? That’s tough because I am so awesome at everything that I do. But I will give it a try for your entertainment.
1) Call of Duty – any of them.
Maybe not hard, I’m just really bad at them.
2) Marvel vs. Capcom – any of them.
See above. I just really suck. And while I’m on this kick I’ll just name 3) Street Fighter because it’s the same set up and I suck at that too.
4) Shadow of the Colossus.
SOOOOO hard sometimes….and scary….but ooooooh so deliciously wonderful.
Ok maybe not really that hard but some of us don’t have a lot of experience in this type of game. I sure didn’t. I had NO idea what I was doing. I didn’t even realize I had magic till I was like level 16….no joke.
6) Dr. Mario…..
…..for anyone playing against me because I am unbelievably good.
7) Battle Chess
The queen is a snatch.
I NEVER made it past the part where you go to the moon. NEVER….I have NEVER beaten this game!
9) Dragonquest VIII
The hard part was caring long enough to finish. I got to hour 100+ and just lost interest. Then went back a few years later and of course completely forgot what I was doing.
10) The 80’s.
