Hardest Games According to Reddit
We've put together a list of the hardest games according to Reddit users. From classics like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES) and Ghosts and Goblins, to more recent indie games like Rocket League and Escape from Tarkov, here are the games that'll test your mettle like no other.
While the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles NES game is cited as being tough, some say the difficulty really ramps up in the airfield sewers and technodrome in the Konami arcade game. Some users even share tips and tricks to make it easier, such as respawning pizzas.
When it comes to difficult games, it's hard to come up with a more classic example than Ghosts and Goblins. Many players in their 40s still struggle with the retro platform game, with its notoriously brutal gameplay. Even the Super Ghouls and Ghosts SNES remake is described as "incredibly hard" by some users.
There are plenty of other difficult games on the list, from the hard levels in The Lion King to the Star Wars games on the SNES. We've even included the difficult Tinder game, with some users sharing their own struggles with fake accounts and their standards for potential matches. Of course, we couldn't leave out the hard games that you might have grown up with, from Battletoads to Earthworm Jim.
