I never felt that Rick Dangerous was unfair. Rock, yes. Unfair, no. You get crucified repeatedly but the point is that each time you know that you shouldn't fall for that one again so when you do you blame yourself not the game.

I think the latter Halo's were designed to be played Co-op on Legendary, or they're ridiculously difficult to do. I don't even think it's possible on Halo 3 on your own.

Really? It's been a while but I'm thinking of taking on the trilogy from scratch on Legendary, seems it'd be quite an accomplishment if I beat them all. I just got myself Halo 3 ODST, I wonder if I could clock the lot before Halo: Reach comes out?*

* Bah, it comes out on 14th September, I'd have more chance of getting a blowjob off the pope.

Oooo, forgot one. T2 on the NES. One paultry life, a punch thats as powerful as flick to the face, and damage resistance that would make Superman cry.

The original V-Rally - the handling... AAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHH!!!
And the Nintendo 64 version - double AAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHH!!!
Thankfully they fixed it (mostly) for the sequels.

Before. Thing is, I really wanted to like the game. But all I can do now is hate it. Still, at least I've got the much better Amiga version.

that sounds about right for v rally on the n64 it really was AAAARGHH !

with abysmal graphics and poor controls
v rally 2 was so much better on the ps 1 and the dreamcast
with the ps 1 being a short arcade like racer and the dreamcast version a more lengthy affair

i played the mega drive version of terminator 2 once
didnt play it for very long
hey wait ! i got a new complaint !

Obvi', I'm going to have say the hardest game I ever played is Chakan The Forever Man.

And the most unfair game I played was making a movie of Wonder Boy.

Actual most unfair game I ever played; Shadow The Hedgehog. Unfair I spent money on that.

Actual seriously most unfair game I ever played; Treasure Island Dizzy. Ouch.

The whole of the TNA Impact - a constant game of cheap AI that could (and would) decide to beat you on a whim.

I know that happens with all wrestling games (where the AI will have a little phase of being untouchable), but in TNA it really was the whole game.

Oh, I did swear a bit playing that.

Transformers: Mystery of Convoy. Not just bad, but insanely hard. I literally die in 5 seconds in this game.

The AVGN did a great review of it. Incredibly, he actually played through the whole thing.

Ninja Gaiden II was fun until i met the 2nd Boss, and i threw it in after the 50th try.

Urban Reign ( LOVE IT) had really cheap a.i, i only managed to get through 30/100 fights, just enough to unlock a few fighters for multiplayer.

Aliens Vs Predators, i just cannot enjoy, i just can't master it.
