In the old days, you didn't come back to a game again and again for anything as fancy as online multiplayer or user-created content. No, you came back because the games were freaking impossible. That was the only way game designers of the Nintendo Entertainment System and SNES days could extend the play time: through mindless, frustrating repetition.

These are the 10 games so infuriating, their very mention makes the hairs stand up on the back of our necks.

I figure'd this was an obligation to post to my fellow retro gamers. The list is pretty accurate as far as games go.. i'd pretty much have to give it a 9/10 for accuracy, 9/10 for choice (try out some of the NES rpg's that were almost impossible without the case & instruction booklets...) and, perhaps a 10/10 for descriptions..

its a good read! read it now!!!

Thanks for the link!

Contra also forced you to share your pool of spare lives with the other player, so you were forced to pay for his retarded mistakes (something we're sure ruined many childhood friendships).

This would be funny except that it was me who made those retarded mistakes most of the time. I got things thrown at me every so often. original.gif
