    Battletoads! Got it for my 8th Birthday, I'll never forget the first time I beat the turbo tunnel! Then onto that Ice level and onto the snake pit, I don't think I ever beat that part, can't remember any subsequent levels anyway? The NES Turtles game, the one with the side scrolling parts and overhead view parts, was tough (for a sub-10 year old) but I did beat it once, Shadow Warriors! That should DEFINITELY have been on here! And Bart Simpson vs Space Mutants , never got past the museum as it seemed to just stop working half way through??

    I actually managed to beat GX's story mode on Hard. Hell, I think I beat a few levels on Very Hard too. I doubt I could pull that off again though.

    Good god--are you Anakin Skywalker?

    To be fair, DKCReturns also offered the option to skip difficult levels, a la New Super Mario Bros, and I did wind up using that function a couple times. It meant missing out on all the collectibles for a level, but you were able to continue playing.

    Dustforce was patched with the Mac release so that you could gradually fill a meter by getting better scores, rather than requiring you to get SS to advance. But you still need to get an SS on every level to reach Giga Difficult and the like. Really wish they had released a variety of flowing, easier levels with tons of tricks like the rest of the game, rather than just throwing in a dozen incredibly difficult levels and calling it a day.

    God Hand was quite did YOU guys find it hard?
  • Boonehams - April 18, 2013 9:15 a.m.

    The difficulty of F-Zero GX killed that game for me. I enjoyed playing it, but because of the game's difficult AI, I found myself not recommending it to my friends and not playing its multiplayer with them. Everyone was turned off by it. I got to Chapter 7 of Story Mode (farther than anyone else I knew), threw my arms up at how hard it was, gave up and never looked back. Not only that, but they had the gaul to lock characters away until you beat Story Mode on Very Hard, which was just an insulting, cruel joke.

    I don't think my brother and I ever got through the first level on Battletoads without "accidentally" killing each other. From there it turned into hours of throwing each other off cliffs and hitting ourselves. We only ever saw past the 4th or 5th level because of a Game Genie! Yes I did memorize the second level but christ was it a pain in the ass. The later levels (besides the snakes and the gravity wheel) were pretty damn cool.

    GX...the only game that ever made me break a controller. By throwing it at a wall.
  • Darree - April 17, 2013 9:11 p.m.

    GX is soul crushing. But Hotline Miami? That game didn't seem that difficult at all. Shoot bullets to attract attention, kill incoming enemies. Repeat. Although mad charging with melee weapons was more fun.

    God Hand always seemed to make my hands hurt, so I never got more than a few levels in. I liked Maximo: Army of Xin, but it was much more forgiving than G to G. I've been playing more games on easy lately, mostly games that are a year or more old, that I get for $20 or so, that I want to see what's going on, but don't want to put as much time and effort into.
  • Ravenbom - April 17, 2013 5:56 p.m.

    Yeah, GX was one son of a bitch. I wouldn't have minded an easy mode or at least infinite continues in Gargoyle's Quest instead of just 2 lives.
  • SUCKxITxEZ - April 19, 2013 11:06 p.m.

    Ya, the save system in that game is too cumbersome for 2 lives. Pretty difficult, but I never gave it more then an hour, so I have no idea how tough it gets.
  • Letter11 - April 17, 2013 4:46 p.m.

    Dustforce is so freakin' tough. So many hours put in to remain completely awful, it's just disheartening thinking about it. Wonderful game nonetheless. Unquestionably an easy mode would be a nice edition to it and these other games, but deep down I know, I'm much to proud to ever let myself select them. It's completely foolish, but I'd rather never beat a game than beat it on easy.
  • Redeater - April 17, 2013 4:45 p.m.

    It's almost criminal that Punch-out isn't on this list. I have beaten pretty much every game I have ever owned on the hardest modes. Modern games are a joke when it comes to difficulty. I played Punch-out on my WiiU the other day and got my ass handed to me by the second Don Flaminco fight. For now I'm blaming gamepad lag instead of old age but I'll have to accept that I'm never going to beat Mr. Dream.
  • shawksta - April 17, 2013 5:07 p.m.

    The second Don Flaminco was the biggest bullshit ever, he keeps taunting and stalling out time and you HAVE to KO him or else the Referee lets him win
  • Redeater - April 17, 2013 5:22 p.m.

    Fuck! Come to think of it he didn't hand me my ass. I beat that fucker 2.9 times every round. Then he won the decision at the end with only hitting me a couple times and no knockdowns. That's pretty much the reason I haven't played Punch-out since I bought it for the WiiU! Goddamn that made me angry.
  • shawksta - April 17, 2013 7:51 p.m.

    Im playing it on my 3DS and i stopped playing because how Bullshit it is. NORMALLY if you knocked the f*cker out enough times you should be called the winner but the match was specifically rigged so you HAVE to KO him. Speaking of Which,Punch Out Wii, f*ck TD Bald Bull
  • Fuzunga - April 17, 2013 4:40 p.m.

    Yep, I gave up on GX story mode when I had to race Goroh on a cliffside with falling boulders.
