Devil May Cry 3 is your hardest game? Seriously???? It was way easier than
the Souls games BY FAR! I mean sure it had a few hard parts but I beat that
game forever ago. And yes it was the PS2 version not the PS3 HD Devil May
Cry collection thing.

It's fun to watch people who don't know how to handle "hard" games rate
games on a list like this. More than half of these weren't on my top 10
list of toughest games I couldn't see to the end.

Author Daniel Hunter (27 days)
Contra is freaking easy. Stop putting it on lists of difficult games.
Battletoads is hard though and level 9 is ridiculous.

Dmc 3 is too easy, i played it long time ago,and i remember only hard is
the bosses,but not too hard

Devil May Cry 3?! Infinite Difficulty... really? I had this game before and
playing it in normal was just very easy for me and when I finished the
whole f***king game I set it in Hell Mode next and what I got was just
another Easy-Piecy-Nice and Shitty play. Heck even the Grim Reaper in the
game was just childs-play even 2 of them just pulled my Fun meter just by a
bit.This list is wrong, number one should have been Dark Souls for PC

lol typical a hardest top 10 made by an idiot would have dmc 3 at the
number 1 holy shit the ignorance. Breathe of fire or Kaiten baitos probably
beats this whole list. But surely he wouldn't know what a real hard game

You know what is WAY harder than Final Fantasy III for Nes? Final Fantasy V
for snes, in all japanese, without knowing jap. Try beating the super
bosses without cheating. Too me 500 hours to master that one. And then FF
II for NES was also harder than FF III....I think even part 1 was harder.
But to each their own I guess

Ninja Gaiden and the DMC and Souls games weren't monstrously hard, they're
just some of the more popular modern games that hold any challenge at all.
Classic roguelikes would dominate every spot on the list if they'd bothered
to include any. Put Dwarf Fortress in there somewhere. I remember finding
Spec Ops: Stealth Patrol on PS1 to be completely unplayable due to its

I am still incredibly puzzled as to why Mega Man 9 is hard to so many. Its
not even the hardest in the series.

Author Phoenix Stratus (3 months)
I couldn't beat battletoads even with a game genie cause it was so damn
hard. However, I can beat zelda 2 without saving, and without dying (on a
good day). Lesse.. Faceball, megaman 3, alien hominid, adventure, road rash
(ps1), einhainder, that walking vertical tank sim, marble madness, stardust
(ps3), yea... a few missed contenders.

But they missed the absolutely hardest game of all time, a game so hard
that NOBODY beat it. The #1 hardest game ever: E.T.
