Top 10 Hardest Video Games of the 21st Century

The Top Ten

1 Dark Souls Dark Souls Product Image

True but it isn't as hard as people say it is. Don't get me wrong, it is really hard but don't fall for the "extremely difficult" hype either.

The one that made me pull my hair and set a new type of RPG for some to follow (sadly, not all are good i.e. Lords Of The Fallen). This game is not only difficult, but it's absolutely fantastic. It's one of the few games that have replay value for me nowadays. - MKBeast

2 Dark Souls III Dark Souls III Product Image

A perfect sendoff (though not for the Xbox because frame rate). Dark Souls III is a game best experienced than watched. - MKBeast

3 Ninja Gaiden Black Ninja Gaiden Black Product Image

Game was insaneley hard especially on the most brutal difficulty I bet many peoples fingers needed operation after this

4 Super Meat Boy Super Meat Boy Product Image
5 F-Zero GX F-Zero GX Product Image

I really wanna play this game some time. From what I've seen, it's a thrill ride from beginning to end. Blistering speed, stunning visuals for the time, a metalhead's soundtrack, and extreme difficulty sounds like a perfect combination for me. - MKBeast

6 Demon's Souls Demon's Souls Product Image

The game that started it all. The grandaddy of em all: Demon's Souls. From what I've heard, it's the easiest of the series, but definitely had some memorable moments; I especially love it when you somehow beat the tutorial Vanguard, then the Dragon God just punches you square in the face and knocks you out. - MKBeast

11 Dark Souls II Dark Souls II Product Image
12 VVVVVV VVVVVV Product Image
13 Cuphead Cuphead Product Image

Grim Matchstick, Dr Kahl’s Robot, Rumor Honeybottoms, Djimmi the Great, Beppi the Clown, Phantom Express, Cala Maria. These are only a few examples of why this game is difficult.

14 Geometry Dash Geometry Dash Product Image

Because of the users level. Deadlocked is actually kinda easy-medium for me. Bloodbath and Bloodlust is really hard. - 50
