    Brain Re: Top 5 hardest NES games (MSNBC)

    Battletoads was a hard game
    bionic commando was a really hard game
    I don't think I ever played contra without using the konami code
    paperboy I think was hard because the object of the game and contols were silly
    I never thought mike tyson's punchout was that hard, it's just timing

    now what about back to the future?
    How about skate or die?
    And finally… could you ever keep your feet on the power pad for track and field? Really?

    Zelda 2 is hard as hell, but the hardest game I have ever played is Smurf: Rescue in Gargamel's Castle for the 2600. I cant get past the first jump.

    The first 2 Ninja Gaiden games should have been on that list as well. Also I can't believe they left Silver Surfer off the list.

    You just need a top 50 list to do justice to every hard NES game

    Yea I would have to agree with 3 of them maybe

    -B. Commando
    -Contra
    -Battletoads

    but yes I'll always remember silver surfer as being the hardest and don't forget about the 1st mega man.

    Deadly Towers was the hardest game I ever played. I hated myself for continually trying to beat it.

    Maybe it's just cause I was 13 and didn't know any better, but Time Lord killed me every time. I think it is the only game I have ever owned that no one I know could beat.

    Contra became easy once you learned the game...eventually you don't need the code. Takes practice though.

    Bionic Commando was a blast. Love to beat that game. Played it last week. Was not that difficult to me. Especially since the original storyline of the game was intended to be where you fight the Nazis and a resurrected Hilter. Personal favorite.

    As for the other three.......
    MTPO-Gave up..Don't have the patience for that one
    Battletoads-Horribly difficult in my opinion...Gave up
    Paperboy-THAT GAME COULD BE BEATEN?
