Top 10 Hardest Video Games of the 21st Century


The Top Ten

1 Dark Souls

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 Ninja Gaiden Black

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

3 Dark Souls III

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

4 Super Meat Boy
5 F-Zero GX

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 Super Mario Maker
7 Demon's Souls

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

8 Mega Man 9
9 Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening
10 Bloodborne
