    There were so many Nintendo games that were really difficult. The turbo tunnel in Battletoads sucks but there are even harder levels after it.

    You forgot to mention that in the waterfall stage in Contra, if your partner goes ahead of you and doesn't wait up, you die. And thus, making you feel like to strangle your friend.

    Every level in Doom during the "Thy Flesh Consumed" chapter. Even on the easiest difficulty, it's still nearly impossible to get passed the second level. Also in Doom 2 when you get to the ruined city chapter. Just damn... I literally gave up at one point and said the challenge is just not worth it.

    I've played most of the games on this list. By far the hardest level of any game I've ever played is SOCOM US NAVY SEALS 1 in 2002 mission 8 pow camp. 6 months it took me every night after work. The last stage i could beat in like 5min. best game EVER

    Watch mojo was really on point this time. That damn dam level in teenage mutant ninja turtles was designed by Lucifer as far as that turbo level in battletoads, I never beat it. I consider it one of the signs of the apocalypse. 😂😁 But I am shocked by the " Cortana" level in Halo 3 even being mentioned. It was tough, but by no means unreasonable. I loved it. The water temple in Ocarina of Time gets a bad wrap....or should it be rap??? It never bothered me because I had the "Perfect Guide" strategy guide to take me through it.😉😋 that said, it was long and tedious having to keep switching back to those iron boots was a pain.

    There is a warp level in the 3rd level of battle roads which takes you to the surfing board. Once you learn where the warp flash is, that part of the game becomes much easier. I personally though the airship level (basically the same as the 3rd) because I couldnt not get through it. Most people who claim the 3rd level to be the hardest obviously havent gotten to the snake level. Lol.

  • Kyle Simpson
    Kyle Simpson Месяц назад Hi everyone :) I have been a musician for nearly my entire life and I have been a gamer even longer. lol So naturally, for as long as I can remember, I have been absolutely fascinated with pretty much all forms of video game music. So I started creating my own arrangements/covers of my favorite retro video game songs about a year and a half ago (made most of them back then and they have just been sitting on my computer collecting dust) and have really been enjoying it. I wasn't going to post these initially, but I love them so much and I made so many of them that I felt the need to share them all with the world. So feel free to check this out or never look at it even a single time. :) lol And there you have it.🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶

    The problem I had with Water temple in OoT was that you had to keep pausing, equip the iron boots, unpause, rinse and repeat.At least most Zelda games since Wind Waker made the iron boots part of your item commands.
