Unlike many other people, I don't hate this game. Ultima IX was amazing technical achievement back when it was new, I mean it had a full 3D world with freedom to do pretty much whatever you wanted with zero loading times slowing you down. The problem here was that the development was a catastrophe in itself, they had to start over at least three times, the main developers walked out of the project and much of the original stuff had to be cut to be able finish the thing in time.

The result is a buggy mess even after all the updates, patches and other fixes. Everything related to the story, characters and the Ultima mythology is completely in ruins. My friend has been able to finish the game multiple times without much problems, but it seems my copy is so cursed and broken that somewhere along the way the game just doesn't let me through so I could finish the job. Once I got stuck in a teleport and kept going back and forth endlessly, other time an important event refused to trigger and open my path, etc.

Vagrant Story - PlayStation
Vagrant Story is one of the best games on PS1, without a doubt. When I was a kid I always wanted it, but by then Squaresoft was already a household name and all their games were very expensive. I tried it out later and was very impressed with it's design, but somewhere along the way I got stuck and my laptop broke or something. I really should try it out again.

Mega Man - Famicom and NES
Some years ago I decided to play the first three Mega Man games, but at the end I never beat the first one. If I remember correctly there was a part where's this one secret item you're supposed to get or else you can't get to the end. Naturally you couldn't know about this thing unless you had already screwed up, cheated or had help from someone beforehand. That's bullshit.

I used to play this thing on an emulator and still never made it to the end. SMB2 was supposed to be more advanced and difficult version of the first one, but somewhere along the way they got really carried away with the idea. It mostly works just like the original, but now there are all new hazards that can kill you instantly plus all the infamous jumps that require one nano-pixel accuracy.

The big boss of Nintendo America tried this game out and was so frustrated with it that he instead told Nintendo to give Western players something else.

Demon's Crest - Super famicom and SNES
I can't remember the last time I played this gem, but I remember feeling very frustrated since the difficulty isn't easy. Maybe someday I'll have to try it out again.

Demon's Crest reminds me of this PC hysteria we have these days. Back in the day conservative parents lost their shit when they saw this game, since it has so many references to gothic horror and all kinds of evil forces, so that's why it's so rare these days. The game itself is brilliant.

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness - PlayStation 2
This game is frigging huge, the story goes forever and the combinations of all the custom options make the thing feel infinite in its depth. I haven't beaten this one yet, but some day maybe. Starting all over again is my worst fear, since there's so much to do and get lost into.

Contra - Famicom and NES
I love Contra and played it like crazy back in the day, as a multiplayer it's not that difficult. The reason I've never beaten it is because I haven't had anyone to play with in years and the solo mode is hard as balls.

This game is legendary hard. So hard in fact, that I've never managed to beat it without cheating. Last time I made it to the second to last boss after hours of preparing and got my ass handed to me. No matter how good you think you are in this game, the last dungeon is still the Mount Everest of frustration.

A very impressive game for its time, but I remember it being somehow weird, maybe my age had something to do with it. Ever since I came to know the main designer and her wonderful body of work I've wanted to try it out again.

Even though I LOVE the original, I've never bothered to complete this one. The Sega-CD version is just perfect as it is, but I found the remake mostly boring and slow even if it's nowhere near as filled with new content as Silver Star. I know the original doesn't start really kicking until few hours in, but this is like 10+ hours or so and that's way too much.
