Hardest NES Game?
« on: June 01, 2011, 08:39:46 am »
Vote. Which one is hardest?
My opinion is Megaman, especially Megaman 2 (Quickman... O.O)

Well, going by this list I'd say Contra is the hardest followed by Metroid, then Megaman, then Castlevania. For games that have multiple titles, I assume you mean the series as you listed Megaman in the poll, but mentioned Megaman II. Of the original (NES, I-VI) Megaman games, III is definitely the hardest. If you want some punishment give that one a try. Quickman psshh... I can beat him with the buster. :P Oh, and if you want to see some NES games that are really difficult you should check out Ghost's and Goblins, Battle Toads, and Snake rattle n' roll (later levels).

I personally can't give an honest opinion on the subject, since I haven't played too many NES games. However, you should also add an "Other" option for those people who think some other game is harder.

Metroid, it takes ~1 hour to get back out of the first boss' (not ridley) lair, you have to literally do the wall climbing glitch to get back up again without frustration.

I would say Metroid, because you always start with 32 HP and have to refill it to 6 bars to beat the final boss and repeat everytime you die. It takes friggin long.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Would say Super Mario Frustration, if you count hacks. This hack is kinda insane.

Except for Airman, Megaman 2 isn't that bad once you beat Metal Man. Though Crash Man is annoying as heck too...


Spoiler For Projects:

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

megaman 2 is the easiest of the series. once you figure out the patterns all the enemies/bosses use, though, you can almost run through any of them with your eyes closed. it's sort of like guitar hero :p
metroid is long, and both contra and battletoads are difficult, but for me the hardest game has always been blaster master. there is no save function, in overhead mode being hit both takes away health and makes your weapons less effective, and there are certain glitches which, if ignored, and get you stuck in a spot that is impossible to escape, requiring a restart XD. oh, and it's long as well, meaning that beating it is at least a day long ordeal.

Well, you could use the time stopper to freeze them. If not, it is actually possible to dodge every single one of them. =)

Yeah, that's kinda how it is in MM2... But I don't agree about what you said about Guitar Hero. :P I've been playing it for a while now and I can tackle pretty much every new song in new games that gets thrown at me (except for ridiculous stuff like Satch Boogie and TTFAF and whatever they put in WoR). If you've played the game enough, you learn the game, not the songs in the game.

I've actually found that Megaman V is the easiest in my experience, in both playing through levels and boss fights. It is however a pretty polished and graphically pleasing game.

*edit* Can someone add an option to change your vote please?
