Quote from: lexluthermiester on February 28, 2017, 01:13:04 AMHow in hell did the NES Battletoads miss this list? That game was COMPLETE misery! Every other game mentioned in the thread can be beat if one gives enough tries, has patience and studies the game. Battletoads however? Forget it, you are not beating that game without an extreme amount of luck. Don't even bother playing two player. Spooniest mentioned swearing at people using Ninja Gaiden levels. For a while in high school calling someone "Battletoads" was a deep insult that only the gaming portion of the student body understood.To date it is the only game I've owned and never beat without cheats. MegaMan2 on hard was easy by comparison. I literally daydreamed about finding the people who made the game to give them a swift kick in the crotch.
QuoteYou played as Rash, Zitz, or Pimple, because we really were that dumb as kids, and their quest was to defeat the Dark Queen, because it's really easy to manipulate dumb kids. Battletoads wasn't a game, it was a secret project to electronically destroy the human soul. The game was harder than a diamond strap-on and did similar things to you when you played with it.Either that or it was a secret project to trigger latent psychic powers, as that was the only way to get past the jet bike levels.It was proof that kids would spend four months subjecting themselves to thumbscrews if that was what they'd spent their birthday money on. And it was jealous. It would murder your friendships to force you to spend more time with it, because friendly fire was always on. You had a better chance of staying friends with someone if you entered a Saw trap together.Thumping each other was fun, but every Battletoad was equipped with the grappling equivalent of the double Vulcan Nerve Pinch: holding a friend or enemy above your head paralyzed them, while you could walk around the level, loudly wondering which instant death pit you'd cast them into. There was no way to break out. Wiggling your joystick might as well have been a euphemism for all the good it would do, and at least then you'd be showing them who could be the dickiest while playing together.

Quote from: Bregalad on March 01, 2017, 02:02:04 AMI didn't mention the game on purpose. Sure it is very hard but my opinion is that its difficulty is grossly exaggerated (by you and other people). I didn't beat BT myself but I reached level 10 (Rat Race) legimately, which is some 75% of the game (ok maybe not 75% of difficulties). There's so many games I cannot even beat level 1, so it'd be ridiculous for me to say Battletoads is harder than them.Also the part about luck is completely wrong. Most of the game is very predictable and you just have to remember the exact movement you have to do and time it perfectly. A single mistake and you're dead. However it remains simple memorization. There is rarely more than 1 or 2 dangers simultaneously in BT, while some games throws dozens of bullets at you (i.e. Silver Surfer or King's Knight).

QuoteBattletoads requires exactly zero luck.
QuoteThe weapons in MM2 are ridiculously overpowered. Everyone knows about spamming Metal blade and how most bosses are weak to it
QuoteMM2 is not only the easiest MM game by far, but it's also one of the easiest NES platformers period.
