any list that does not include Who Framed Roger Rabbit as one of the hardest games ever is incomplete.

the final boss battle is nearly impossible.

Back to the Future on NES is also insanely difficult.

Kid Chameleon (Genesis) is unbeatable (at least I've never known anyone who could beat it w/o Genie), so it should be high on the list.

Or how about Life Force (NES) w/o 30 lives code? That game was near impossible with 3 lives.

edit: hell, even games like Metroid and Kid Icarus were tougher than games these days, even with continue codes.

I think a distinction have to made whether a game is difficult (Ninja Gaiden, Kid Icarus) or poorly designed (Jedi Power Battles, Double Dragon III)

Yeah, some of the poorly designed stuff comes to my mind first. Top Gun, where landing on the stupid aircraft carrier was next to impossible. And ET that bankrupted the old Atari. If you fell in a hole it was pretty much not possible to get out.

Some of these games i didn't even know had endings. Defender ended?

Demon's Crest was a pretty hard game. Never actually beat it.


Also, this seems a tad ridiculous.

Wow, God Of War wasn't difficult in the least. Shouldn't be in the top 1000.

Still a great series, though. My favorite, probably.

There's Doom 1, but no Doom 2 as well...unless they both count as one whole?

I'm with you that cod4 is not one of the hardest games I've ever played, but it isnt "easy" on veteran difficulty.

Life Force (Salamander) isn't too difficult… Gradius II SNES was alot harder and thats the first stage! Still manageable… I can 1cc Life Force NES as well as the Saturn/arcade version. The second loop, now thats a different story

Kid Icarus and Metroid become far more manageable with a map… again, the Nintendo black book offered maps for these games as well.

COD 4 definitely does not deserve to be on that list. Hardest game I have ever played was Battletoads.
