I gave up on Battletoads (NES). I did beat it, but I'm pretty sure we had to cheat with a Game Genie. That game was ridiculous.

A game I completely admitted defeat to was Rad Gravity for NES. Right before I sold off my NES, I went back to play a few games from the list. I whizzed through a bunch of them, got owned by a few more, but Rad Gravity has always, always been a black mark on my list. It's a 2d platformer/action game with mini collection aspects, and it was just stupid hard. I used Game Genie for infinite lives but could never get past the Volcania level as a kid. When I tried it again much much later (and grown up), I looked online for a password to get to the last level, and couldn't even get past the first few screens. Needless to say, this is one game I have never beaten and never will.

I remember giving up on some boss in Metal Arms: Glitch in the system but I think I just bought another game because I didn't really give it many trys i remember.
I play Halo 3, Rainbow Six, SSBB, Carcassonne, Worms, others online. PM me to play SSBB, send friend request to play Xbox Live.

Tough games I've given up on? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Golgo 13: Top Secret Episode, all for the NES, come to mind. For TMNT, it was usually around the infamous Dam level, where you had to disable the time bombs and avoid the plentiful electric seaweed. For Golgo, I could stand the vague directions and poor dodging mechanics (No ducking, even though your enemies could do so), but when I got to the first featureless first-person maze, any fun I had with the game turned into frustrating boredom.

That being said, the hardest game I've ever beaten - and probably the last difficult game I've actually beaten - was FreQuency for the PS2. For those who haven't heard of it, it's the ancestor to Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Same racetrack game design, but using a standard controller and a strong focus on electronic music. The game was digital crack.
Despite having terrible reflexes and shaky fingers, by some fluke of physics, I managed to beat every song on every difficulty, including the blistering final secret track. To this day, as I struggle with Hard difficulty on Guitar Hero and Rock Band, I wonder how on Earth I pulled it off back in the day. My fingers get tied in knots by the end of the first phrase when I attempt it now.

The toughest game I gave up on was the Original Super Mario Brothers. Everyone may say this game was easy but for some reason on 8-4 I could never get past it. After stepping away for years and beating many other games I finally came back and beat it so many years later. You guys can laugh but SMB was my unicorn for a long time. lol

Still is my unicorn, dude. Every once in a while, it decides to just prance into my living room and shove its horn up my butt out of spite. Just can't beat it.

I beat Startropics, remember having a heck of time with the last boss and I have "747" burned in my mind.
I gave up on TMNT and Battletoads. Couldnt get past the van level in TMNT but I could get pass the hoverbikes in Battletoads. (Still can, fired it up and I can pass without cheating.)
(Thanks Mega Man 9 for saving me $10, too hard for me. If it was $5 I'd see if there was a level I could beat.)

Hardest game I gave up on was Battletoads. I even used a Game Genie to level warp to 6 (the farthest level you could choose with a Game Genie) and me and my brother couldn't even beat that level, even with infinite lives.

The game that was so hard I gave up on it was... well lots of them really but I remember being particularly annoyed by Bart Vs. the Space Mutants. DAMN that game is hard.

i get frustrated with really hard games to be honest... i'd have to say i'm very proud of my completes on the donkey kong country series.
