You’re right. Platform games take mad skill. One false move means you fail and have to start over.

Mega Man is brutal. Mega Man 11 is in the top 5 hardest in the series. I am a huge Mega Man buff and even I got slaughtered by MM11 on normal. Torch Mans stage is insane.

Mega Man 8 is crazy too though.The hardest MM games are 7,8,9 and 11. The original is hard as fu*k too. The hardest boss is Wily Capsule in Mega Man 7. fu*k that sh*t.

Sonic 1 is not hard except for Scrap Brain and the fact you have to f*ght the final boss with zero rings. The game forces you to perfect the final boss. sh*t is insane.

Donkey Kong country 2 is insane your first time playing it. The only reason I’m good at it is because I played that game since 1998.

Ninja Gaiden for NES is fu*king ridiculous.

Mario is easy due to having flawless controls from jump street that improved with each successive installment.

Sonic 1 isn't that hard

Platformers are hard as sh*t tho

I think the MegaMan franchise as a whole is unforgiving.

Ninja Gaiden is harder

Shinobi as well

Great observation. I beat most of them. I can't remember how hard Double Dragon 3 is. I know I just beat the one that is on the Switch with the cloud subscription.

Yeah, I heard "Cuphead" is hard AF. They recently dropped that for the Switch.

ya platformers are definitely the most difficult cause of the amount of time you spend going threw trial and error to get to the finish line, especially games that dont have unlimited continues once you run out of lives.

roguelike games are also very unforgiving

ya ninja gaiden for the NES is ridiculous with enemy spawn points cause once you move out back a frame and forward a frame the enemy respawns automatically and they you had to climb up walls using the dpad in a half circle method was a challenge

i could always get to the second form of the ryus fathers battle but could never beat him

The only game to make me break a controller was Brave Fencer Musashi. I both loved and hated the game. My brother and I did beat Contra without the cheat codes and if you play Battletoads enough to memorize it then it's not that hard. MK Mythologies Sub Zero is hard because it's just a horribly designed game.

^^agreed

i remember renting Mytholgies on N64 as a kid. It was very cool, but was extremely difficult for me. I couldnt even get past the 3rd stages and then ended up using cheat cods. Eventually i just figured it wasnt meant for kids and after the week was over i returned it.

In 2016 i looked it up on Youtube and watched a play through of it and noticed that YES, in many aspects its just a poorly designed game.

I will say one underrated type of game is f*ghting games.
It is very difficult to be legit at different f*ghters.

The more serious you take it the more you realize how difficult it is (especially when you start learning about frames).

It might be my fav genre but im trash in most of them.

Ninja Turtles for NES ruined my childhood, one time i was playing that THAT DAMN WATER LEVEL, died for the 50th time in a row and hurled that big bulky wireless NES controller across the room, i literally felt the game was made specifically so I couldn’t beat it












Then I returned to TMNT my final semester of college and would play on my laptop during one of my lectures, got a well earned “C” in that course lol, and left with my degree, all while basking in the joy of finally beating my childhood demon...lol
