There have been some great pranks in gaming, developers always seem to have a sense of humor, which is a great thing for such a high stress working environment. We see a bunch of jokes or pranks every year around from some of our favorite big-name developers who love to play jokes on one another. On the flip side of it all, most of the gaming community sure has a similar sense of humor. Unfortunately, some of these pranks can be incredibly cruel.

With the popularity of online gaming being what it is today, it seems that the cruelty is expanding and keeping pace with all the new technology, hardware and software. The only real limit at this point is someone’s imagination. Even knowing this though, there is certainly some old classics that will go down in history as some of the nastiest burns in gaming history. Lets take a look at a few of the worst we could find for you.

Earthbound:

Plenty of folks have played and love the absolute hell out of Earthbound, most of us though have played it way back on the original SNES, or at the very least an emulator years later. What most of us didn’t have a chance to experience (thankfully,) is the Super Hard Mode version of Earthbound.

The designers built in a little bit of a surprise for folks who managed to get their hands on a non-authentic version of a Super Nintendo. The surprise is that the game becomes incredibly difficult, spawning enemies too fast for the player to handle it. Basically, the game just becomes way too difficult for anyone to actually play. It’s a brilliant idea, really.
