Agree with Ninja Gaiden on Xbox 360. I found this utterly unenjoyable to play as the difficulty ramped up not too far into the game.  I felt neither the inclination or desire to play it after that.

I'm sure this one isn't that hard but I've been playing it most nights during this month, but I cannot, yet, get to the end of Rush 'n' Attack on the XBLA!

Final game ill mention now, also on XBLA, is fraking Spelunky!! Aaaargh! Damned annoying little game.

Been a while since I updated this. Some of the Batman games I've tried lately have been pretty hard (see first post).

The 2600 and 7800 versions of Double Dragon are bloody difficult, especially compared to the super easy versions on other systems.

I never found these versions of DD to bee that difficult.  A game that I do find difficult is Rolling Thunder, though.  I have the ports for the NES and the PSP and both are difficult to play.  The PSP version is even harder!

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

I have lots of systems and games, but two NES titles immediately come to mind:

Ghosts and Goblins
Castlevania

Both are maddeningly difficult and make you want to fling them through a window.

Just after posting I realized that I was wrong

The hardest games I ever played are mostly shmup butn ot only, here are some examples:
- Zero 5 (Jaguar) could only unlock 4 levels
- Every Extended Extra (PSP) one of the few game that give the will to destroy my PSP while playing (specially that mother f****r 3rd boss)
- Tombi (PSone) cute but extremely hard
- Space INvaders Extreme (PSP) could pass thourgh the 3rd level

Darksiders PS3-gave up on 1st boss due to horrendous control scheme for lock-on/special attacks.

Darksiders ? Come on it is quite easy ... Which boss exactly the first one or the firsto ne after you are send back on earth ?

Other wise I forgot

Ninja gaiden 2 on Xbox 360

Grand Prix Challenge on PS2 control are just too touchy

Power Drive Rally on Jaguar the second skills test is nearly impossible...

Dunno about Darksiders being 'easy' i just found it an utter ball-ache to play, in terms of boss fights.It was 1st fight on earth, you vs Dargon type lass, controls were awful and each time you died, which i did often, you had to trek back, sit through unskippable cut scene shit, listen to same old speech, only to die, rinse and repeat.Though F-this.Gave game away to a mate.

Ninja Gaiden II however, i sailed through and completed.Each to their own.

Funny to see which games are difficult to some are easy to others.

I had the exact same experience with Darksiders so you're not alone RT.
The game was fairly easy up to that point but I got pissed off at that same boss and turned it off and never played the game again. It didn't help that the game was a huge Zelda ripoff and I have gotten bored with every Zelda game I ever played and never finished one of them.

:-) Glad it was'nt just me.I found the 'difficulty' to be finding the desire to continue playing the game past the point i got stuck.75% of the time i'll leave a game, for months, hell even years and return to it, this however? interest killed stone dead.I was told it was like a modern day Soul Reaver game, so hopes were high, but nope, fell at 2nd hurdle for myself and killed any interest in the sequel.

Thing is today? i'm not exactly going hungry for games, got pile of shame on so many formats, if game kills interest off early on? it be f*cked.why would i want to spend time struggling to get past an early stumbling block, if they could'nt even sort the basics out?.Just was'nt going to happen.

Yeah that's how I'm starting to look at games these days too. So many games I want to play and there just isn't enough time. If I find I'm not really enjoying a game what's the point in playing more? Might as well move on to another game in the pile.

Most recent case in point for myself:

Mate at work lent me:Sniper Ghost warrior II on 360, just as he had the previous game, i don't care if it is powered by Cry Engine III, it's awful, been deleted from my HDD, going back to him in the morning and i'm moving on.....
