Checkpoints and save points in video games can be rather underrated. You don’t really notice their importance until they’re gone…or unless some they’re spaced, forcing you to go long stretches without dying. Let’s take a look at 15 of the most unfair checkpoints in gaming.

Blood Stained Sanctuary – Cave Story

The Blood Stained Sanctuary is truly the toughest challenge that Cave Story has to offer. It has three sections filled with death spikes, falling blocks and respawning Butes. By the time you get to the end of the third section, it’s a battle with the first boss Heavy Press. But wait, there’s more! You then proceed down a passage to face the toughest boss in the game, Ballos with his four phases. Now make sure you do all of that in one go or you have to start from the beginning.
