    3 Most Challenging Video Games of All Time

    Over time, video games have changed in not just graphics but also, their focus. The games of the older times didn't drive their viewers mad with frustration with their inherent difficulty. In those days, deaths were cheap but so were lives, there was no flexibility in checkpoints like current video games and the codes had passwords that were infuriatingly long and confusing.

    The key to defeating these hard games is to stay away from sharp objects, like you do in real life. If you want to try your luck with some of the hardest video games, then the following list will sum up some of them –

    1. Adventures of Link – Zelda II – Legend of Zelda was a legend indeed and was on top
    of popularity charts. The much awaited sequel that was pretty hyped made the gamer
    look askance at the developers. The game had become a fist clenching hack and slash
    RPG that was much more difficult that their beloved Zelda. There were three lives but
    those took no time to extinguish.

    Another thing that made people squirm was the fact that you lost all your experience
    points every time you lost all your lives. Also, the Dark Maze was almost impossible to
    wade through.

    2. Alien VS Predator (the Jaguar version) – Alien VS Predator saw Jaguar shine like
    never before as aliens tricked you from behind and your face was eaten. Agreed that the
    main reason for such difficulty was probably the poor graphics and limited technology
    but that doesn't take away the fact that the game was very hard. You had three options
    to play as – alien, predator or marine. Many people believe that they would have fared
    better in an actual invasion by aliens.

    In order to survive in this game, you have to be on the edge of your seat and most of the
    times, you are literally on your toes.

    3. Contra – Contra is that game that made cheat codes not only popular but necessary. You
    might have a faint memory of sitting with your friends and beating this game but do you
    remember that you always used cheat codes when you did that? If you didn't, you are
    truly a hero and a gamer. But most people wouldn’t go far at all if they played solo and
    battled Red Falcon on their own.

    There are 8 levels with three lives that seem to fly away when you’re without the safety
    net of codes. There is a waterfall level that has caused many nervous breakdowns to
    gamer because it is almost impossible to finish. If your enemies don’t kill you, the
    moving screen’s edge certainly will. So, you have to protect yourself and be fast enough
    to live.

    There are many other games like F-Zero GX, Mega Man 9 and others that are pretty difficult as well.
