Spelunky, can die within 10 seconds of starting a level. You will still hit restart, but its the principal of the thing...

I'm glad that I took the time to beat this fight on hyper mode on Metroid prime 3. It was one of the few fights in my video game history that I've ever rage quit (on the hardest difficultly) after a month of trying lol I finally managed to clear it after coming back a few months later some years ago. Part 1 and 2 on video below

This. Actually I got stuck on hard, or whatever difficulty is just beneath Legendary, in a boss fight with infinitely respawning enemies that attack incessantly while you need to melee the boss, or something. (It's been a few years.)

Honestly, there arent all that many 'hard' games anymore. You cant even compare modern shooters to what we had before (instagib CTF on facing worlds anyone?). The most difficult to play games are still going to be your traditional strategies, WC3, SC2 etc and the MOBAs now. With a few real shooters around, T2, Q3A etc...

Last game I got stuck on would be.... probably amnesia, more due to my own pathetic nature than the game being hard though.

There are only two games that are difficult for me:



Gitaroo Man(Ps2) on Master Play.
...still haven't beat it.



and Dark Soul.

Demon's Souls wasn't hard.

Dark Souls without a shadow of a doubt. Also Shin Megami Tensei's Devil Survivor. I have to pick the 3DS version of that up at some point...

Definitely the Ninja Gaiden games. The combat mechanics are just so well done that learning the nuances is fun even if you're getting kicked in the face time and again.

Dark souls and demon souls can be fun, but also at the same time makes me wanna smash my controller.

Dark/Demon Souls makes dying fun.

As an aside, the message system is brilliant.
