1. Oregon Trail

[pic - click to view]


The game that introduced a brand new generation to the dangers of dysentery was nigh impossible to beat. Try to ford the river? Dead. Increase the pace of travel? You break a leg. Dead. Travel during the hot, sweltery summer months? Dysentery. Dead. You get the point.

2. Contra

[pic - click to view]


Modern shooters like the Call of Duty franchise with its auto-save and unlimited continues makes life too easy. Meet Contra, the grandaddy of all shooters where you get three lives. Period. No shields or auto-regen life here, you get nicked by one pixel and you're dead. It's no wonder this game popularized the popular Konami cheat code which gave you 30 lives, but even then the game would be a white knuckle ride all the way.

3. Demon's Souls

[pic - click to view]


Most modern games treat gamers with kid gloves and bubble wrap. Not Demon’s Souls. This game is more of an exercise in masochism than entertainment and will see you dying repeatedly just trying to figure out the basics. To further add to the morbidity, the only a.ssistance provided by the game is notes left behind by players who died at the particular spot that you’re about to die at.

4. Dark Souls

[pic - click to view]


This is the spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls. ‘Nuff said.

5. Super Mario Bros 2: The Lost Levels

[pic - click to view]


You know the game’s hard when Nintendo executives decided to not release it in America for fear of ruining the franchise with its frustratingly difficult gameplay. The game featured enemies with completely random placements and poisonous mushrooms masquerading as 1-ups that k!lled you instead of granting an extra life.

6. Battletoads

[pic - click to view]


Widely considered one of the hardest, if not the hardest game ever produced. Screens were literally cluttered with enemies making it virtually impossible to beat alone. Co-op mode you say? Good luck with that, the designers made it possible for you to k!ll off your team mate in one punch as well.

7. I Wanna Be The Guy

[pic - click to view]


Take every annoying boss or difficult level from the best of 8-bit games, wrap it all into one side-scrolling platformer and you get I Wanna Be The Guy. Prepare to double jump like you’ve never double jumped before.

8. Ghosts 'n Goblins

[pic - click to view]


Getting gear is one of the driving forces behind gaming. Now imagine for an instant that all your hard earned loot could disappear once you were hit once. There’s Ghost ‘n Goblins in a nutshell for you. Every moment in the game, you’re paranoid that you’ll make a misstep and be stripped of your armor and have nothing but your boxers to help you fend off hordes of undead.

9. Zelda II: The Adventures of Link


Grinding experience is a necessary evil of most RPGs, but Zelda II made it even worse. If you died, reset, or turned off your game between levels, you would lose all the experience that you had accumulated thus far which forced many players to simply leave their NES systems on for days instead of losing their hard earned xp. Oh and did we forget to mention that you only had three lives before you have to start over from the very beginning?

10. QWOP


Who ever thought running could be so hard? With awkward controls linking the keyboard keys QWOP to calves and thighs, players would be hard pressed to make it a couple meters in the game without turning into a tangled mess of limbs

Me and my brother had sh*t loads of fun with battle toads but could never finish it . Had to take it back to blockbuster when we were renting games in the good ole days.

Oregon Trail was wack. I only got to play it when my class went to the computer room once a week for 30 minutes. You had to finish number munchers first, then you could jump on Oregon Trail. By then there was no time left. I was always dying tryna rush to the end.

In the original comics they were all rocking the red mask. Then they gave em colored ones so people could tell the difference.
