The hardest videogame of all time

The hardest videogame of all time

Visionary, absurdly difficult games such as this gain cult followings. It is the game I remember most from my childhood. It is the game I love (and despise) the most, because it was the hardest, the most complex, the most challenging. The world it presented was like being exposed to Plato’s forms, a secret, nonphysical realm of pure ideas and logic. The challenge of the game—and it was one serious challenge—was to understand that other world. Programmer Thomas Foote had just started college when he picked up the game: “I swore to myself,” he told me, “that as God is my witness, I would finish this game before I finished college. I managed to do it, but just barely.”

I thought it would be Ninja Gaiden on NES. I actually beat SGNG, never beat Ninja Gaiden.

I was going to guess either Battletoads or Contra. Fuck, those games frustrated the hell out of me as a kid.

Goddamn Battletoads, the ultimate quarter eater, right next to Raiden.

For me the hardest video game is definitely ADOM, still not even close to ascending it.
