It's a real shame that some great NES games are marred by their almost impossible difficulty. But a wise man once said about old games, "The games weren't too hard then... They're just too easy now". There's a lot of truth in that statement. I used to beat some pretty tough games back in the day but not so much anymore, which is probably because newer games have dumbed down my reaction times/patience/etc. I think patience more than anything.
Agreed, I remember beating ninja gaiden 2 which was very hard for its day. I played it again and I was like, "How did I ever do this without cheat codes?"
I will admit I hate games that tend to be difficult due to lack of game design though. It's like they made it challenging on accident.

TATTOO ASSASSINS!
I'm surprised this one wasn't in this topic already. Well, now it is!
Tattoo Assassins is basically an extremely rushed and incomplete game. You should play it just to see how hilariously bad it is.

Can you believe this game is the reason Johnny Cage and Raiden aren't in MK3?
Copied from MAME's info on the game:
"Carlos and Daniel Pesina from Midway's MK series worked in Tattoo Assassins. After that, Midway didn't want them to work with them in "Mortal Kombat 3", so they killed Johnny Cage (the only Daniel Pesina character that didn't wear a mask) and excluded Raiden (Carlos Pesina)."
One of the programmers also wrote how painful it was to develop the game. It's pretty long, so I can't post it here. It's on the MAME info though. Check it out.

Funny you picked that. Back when I was doing Random Mame Game of the Week, this title came up. It is truly AWFUL! :sick:

It popped up during a conversation with Hiero and Thulsa and I thought it would be nice addition.

I was also surprised that Tattoo Assassins wasn't in this section before. I actually thought it was, but I must've had it mixed up with one of the other MK rip-offs. Stupid games.

Oh Atari, our love can never be. I'm too young for you!
I'll take this chance to say that I think Atari games are the creepiest games ever. It must be because almost everything is left to imagination.

Shadow The Hedgehog. Some people like this game, but I can't look past it's issues.
The camera pretty much forces you to walk instead of run and the gameplay is choppy as all hell. It feels like an incomplete game.

It even looks hard to control just watching someone else play. Plus, guns in a Sonic game? What the... :wtf:
