Hardest Video Games


The Contenders: Page 2XW


Anyone remember this? No? Nothing? Okay...

22Dragon Spirit

I had a friend who beat this game easily. I saw him do it several times. It was amazing. I couldn't last but few seconds.

23A Monster Ate My Homework
25Super Meatboy

Not long played the trail on Xbox 360 arcade... Damn it's hard

The levels start out easy but as you progress they get harder and harder, I can't tell you how many times I've quit to the map and gone to the next level and my personal hardest level is level 13

I think this game should be higher on the list, it's that hard

This game is so hard! Not as hard as The Binding of Isaac (from the developer of this game) in my opinion, though.

Never have I ever gotten so angry at a game as I have with super meat boy.

Completed it. Final stage took days. - GreenDayFan97

Come on. only scientists, cheaters, hackers, crazy people or very patient people beat this game

27Demon's Souls

Way way way harder than dark souls. Should be #2.

28Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Overall, this is actually one of the EASIEST games of all time. - xandermartin98

Pretty easy compared to lots of others castlevania games, with the only really difficult boss being galamoth

How did this even make the list? Alucard is an overpowered playable and some bosses go down in 6 seconds. Well, Belzebub, Galamoth and Dracula aren't that easy but I don't have problems with them either. I'd rather SotN is really easy, and there are several spots to have a good luck.

29Ninja Gaiden (2004)

I usually don't say this but F! @$# that game, this is perhaps one of the most brutally hard games you will ever play even playing on normal mode still feels like your playing on hard mode. - egnomac

Ninja Gaiden definitely made itself one of the signature high difficulty games. Not only is is game hard, but you have to be a literal ninja to beat very hard mode. - Mcgillacuddy

36Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

Skylanders is a complete rip off the spyro franchise

Ok. The final boss is the HARDEST PART! But I still liked it. At least the final bosses in later installments were easier.

? This game is balogni why isn't a more legit game taking this spot like megaman or ddr

37Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Destroyed me for video games. It was the first video game I ever played. Put hours and hours (and hours) of time into it and gave up after about 50 attempts at Great Palace.

I've never played an adventure game since.

How the heck is this number 36, it should be number 1! Adventure of Link is the hardest game I've played... took me a long time to finish level 1, don't get me started on the Great Palace.

I played this once and I didn't even get to the 1st dungeon. I died trying to get an item.

38Final Fantasy X

100 Hours to Beat it.

Challenging puzzle, bosses, and side quests.

EXTREMELY hard to meet the requirements for getting the ultimate weapons.

Awesome game, though

Never passed got stuck with the big dragon during the marriage and never played the game again ill just wait till 2014 for the hd remake - SexySiren666

39Super Meat Boy

With freakishly hard levels in the game, it's impossible to beat. And there's 250+ levels in that game which makes it a total nightmare!

So hard that it's on the list twice.
