Top 10 Obscenely Hard NES Games

Real Talk by: Rickayyyyy

It’s weird how the definition of a hard video game has changed over the years.  Games we view as hard now would have been a walk in the park back in the days of NES.  See, when Nintendo released their first game system, it was very limiting in terms of how complex the games could be.  They just couldn’t make most games long enough for a single play through to be considered worth it.  So they took a much different route than most modern-day games: they ramped up the difficulty to such a degree as to make it incredibly hard to beat.  Also that there was less knowledge of what made a good game contributed to some games being much harder than they needed to be.  As a result, there are many obscenely hard games on the NES.  Here’s my list of what I believe to be the 10 hardest.

With 12 films (including the reboot and awfully funny Freddy vs Jason), Jason is one of the most prolific fictional baddies that endures across decades. His inclusion in the recent Mortal Kombat X has piqued PlayLegit’s interest in going back to Mr. Voorhees’ gaming roots: the infamously difficult and rather pointless Friday the 13th NES game. How does it hold up after 26 years?

The Guardian Legend Retro Review (NES)

Real Talk By: The Wizard

If you’ve played through a lot of the NES library and are looking for something different, today we will be reviewing The Guardian Legend. This is somewhat of a hybrid developed by Compile way back in 1988. It takes 2 great genres, Action RPG and SHMUP, and attempts to meld them together to create one great game.
