  • those games are difficult however not hardest. I can toss few out of my head that are basically impossible to beat like Ikari warriors (no continue in this game), Ghostbusters, Star Force, Lolo 3 or cobra triangle. All you did its call all well known games honestly. You lack of research mate ;/

  • I agree with Battletoads being number 1. Great game, but brutal.

  • Ninja Gaiden are the hardest game because they are fair you can beat it without cheats. It really is all about the skills

  • Contra was easy dude, I completed in first go. The hardest nes game was The Final Mission in which they both were in air

  • TMNT is beyond a doubt the most difficult NES game in my book. It’s not even the dam level…it’s the city. Constant respawns of random enemies, never consistent, make it very annoying. Even after that level, the following stages are pure chaos, and some areas, you MUST take damage to proceed! Unfair! I beat it with the Game Genie and called it a day. It’s not worth the frustration and time to beat it without.

  • С контрой, черепахами, ниндзей и зельдой категорически не согласен. Эти игры были достаточно простыми и даже при том, что пиратские картриджи были с завышенной сложностью. В жабах только два уровня проблемные были – мотоциклы и змеи. Остальные так себе.
    А вот Сёрфер – просто адище адское. Я её проходил. Но хитбокс Сёрфера это попаболь.

  • Hudson's Adventure Island should have been on that list maybe even edging out Battletoads as Number 1. The game starts deceptively approachable enough but as you progress the difficulty curve suddenly starts to ramp up. Even with experts playing there are no deathless playthroughs that I know of. And even with experts playing completing the game takes countless attempts. It is seriously one of the hardest games ever made.

  • Im 33, when I was little most NES games were above my skill level though I played most of them thanks to my older brothers, I've never beat any of them and im still struggling today. Im currently switching between super mario 3 and startropics. Your sanity can only handle so much every day.
