10 Outrageously Difficult Games From Recent Years

As gaming begins it slippery descent into the eighth generation with the upcoming dawn of the Wii U, it’s a time of reflection for many of us as we hark back to the golden eras of gaming. Whether you grew up with an Atari, NES or PS1, childhood gaming experiences are one of the great sources of nostalgia that the modern gamer can rely on. One thing we so often see in our gaming pasts is the sheer difficulty of some of these older titles. Pitfall, Contra, Battletoads etc. These retro classics are some of the hardest games out there, but difficult games haven’t completely receded in recent years. To hush all the hand-holding cake walks out there are plenty of titles from the past five years that will truly have you tearing your hair out. We’ve picked out ten of them for you.

Check out more exciting features here. Stay tuned for more news and updates.

    dark souls wasn’t very hard it was tough but no where near as hard as demon souls was but that’s just my two cents.

    Demons’ Souls was the harder of the two. I’m actually grateful for these two games actually proving to me that difficulty is not an obstacle. I’ve quit plenty of games over the years, thinking they were too “difficult”, but in retrospect (and compared to these two masterpieces), they simply achieved their “difficulty” by poor programming/controls, or just plain “cheapness”. Can’t wait for another Demons’/Dark Souls game.

    Dark Souls is more annoying than difficult, It’s built to get you raging. Demons souls is actually difficult as hell, I died so many times before actually finishing it…
