Impossible Games that Kill Gamers' Souls

15. Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening - PlayStation 2
Capcom once stated that the development of this game would include "changing difficulty" (or something of the sort). Meaning that if you played like garbage that game adjusted to you playing like garbage and made the enemies easier. On the flip side if you played like a monster then obviously the game became more difficult.
To bad it was good in theory, but failed in execution. Gamers all over were complaining worldwide of it. So that forced Capcom to go back and release a "Special Edition" of it with a fixed difficultly. It was a success. Again!?
Not to say that the game was unbeatable in the first place. Just took a little more patience.

14. X Men Vs Street Fighter - PlayStation
I have seen people cry when facing Cyber Akuma!
And yes he is a bitch to fight!

13. Viewtiful Joe - GameCube
This game isn't impossible by old school standards, but it is still a pain in the ass. It made new school gamers cry over the challange. With patience this game can be mastered.

12. Ninja Gaiden - Xbox
There was a small segment once in EGM (gaming magazine) showcasing the wake of all the broken controllers caused by none other that Ninja Gaiden.

11. Mega Man 2 - Famicom and NES
The "Mega Man" series was not made for half-assed gamers.

'Nuff said!

10. Mega Man 3 - Famicom and NES
Inside a Capcom staff meeting:

Suit #1:"10 kids around the world have beaten Mega Man 2. Parents and kids are complaining that you guys are making the game to difficult. Please take this into consideration for the next game! Tone down the difficultly level."

Developer:"Well tough luck! Those kids must try harder. I do not want any kids to complete this game! I must be harder!"

9. Ikari Warriors - Famicom and NES
There is no way, I repeat NO WAY! to complete this game. Nevertheless complete this game on three lives.

The endless amount of white bullets never seem to end. Neither does this game.

8. Wolverine: Adamantium Rage - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
One of the many games in Wolverine's long history of video games that actually suck playing as Wolverine. Therefore makes the game even harder to play considering that the game is difficult to begin with.

7. Contra - Famicom and NES
Pure fun no question about that, but is it beatable without the use of the Konami code?

Probably how many people can do it?

(hint:3)

6. Total Recall - Famicom and NES
This is a shitty game that has you running around in a pink jumpsuit(?), dodging random drive-bys (?), and trying to avoid midgets who punch you in the crotch(?)!

I know it makes just as much sense to me as I am typing it.

5. Friday the 13th - Famicom and NES
They give you "rocks" to defend against the immortal Jason Voorhes. Rocks are you serious!? Added bonus is that you play as one of the camp consulars who are just fit the prerequisite for a nice death by being rammed against a tree in a sleeping.(!)

4. A Nightmare on Elm Street - Famicom and NES
Punch snakes in the face or jump over them.
Punch "rock-ish" creatures or attempt to jump over them.
Attempt to Punch Freddy and he appears UNFAZED!

3. Ninja Gaiden - Famicom and NES
Ah, the awesomeness of playing as a ninja when you are younger. All of that awesomeness when you reach the fourth level though. Slowly but surely you realize that:

THIS GAME IS IMPOSSIBLE!

2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Famicom and NES
Ultra really had a lot of children with their Ninja Turtle themed rooms asking their Mom for a Game Genie. That kinda of made the game sorta easy. This game single handedly boosted up the sales of the Game Genie by 400%.

1. Battletoads In Battlemaniacs - Super famicom and SNES
This game can and will make you cry.
Possibly even consider suicide as an option.

Then to boot the game isn't all that good! Even for nostalgic reasons.
Mr. Lays's rating:


 

These games are the reason that bullies come to school and want to beat up on the first person they see. And it makes perfect sense. Old School game designers came up with the concept of making the game so difficult to help out Nintendo's mascot Mario. Really think about it if Mario was so accessible then the "bad guys" had to make their games next to impossible. I know I sound like a conspiracy theorist.
