Most difficult old-school game?

Arcade: Ninja Gaiden (good lord the first level was harder than anything I've ever played; what a waste of a quarter, or should I say many quarters)
NES: Batman (This is the first game I ever remember "losing hope" on. I got to the Joker ONCE and he wrecked me. After that I could never get past his sub-boss so I just gave up)
SNES: Maximum Carnage (This is a real stamina test... Wow. To add insult to injury it has the CRAPPIEST ending ever)
Genesis: Gods (Now this was a very good game, a real grower if you will. The difficulty is only crazy because it has a unique control scheme. Once you give it a chance you realize that it's a really fantastic title)
Turbo Grafx: Victory Run (Honestly, who the hell ever beat this game? It's IMPOSSIBLE)
Playstation: Soviet Strike (Remember this one? If you don't consider yourself lucky)

Do you remember G.I. Joe for arcade? Now THAT was a good deal for your money. You could actually spend a decent amount of time on it for just a quarter.

I managed to beat the Joker once in Batman for NES. Not sure how the hell I did it, but when I went to show my older brother again how I did it, I never could beat him again.

I would have to say King's Knight for the original NES.

For playstation I'd say pretty much any of the tomb raiders. Falling into the river and starting all over.

Otherwise I'd say Beavis n Butthead on genesis. Never got the final piece of ticket that I years later youtubed the video to find you get off the principals head.

Also Bubble Bobble NES. I could get through about 50 or 60 rounds but never officially beat it.

You know actually I was able to beat Beavis n Butthead for the Genesis. And seeing how i'm from Richmond, VA I ran into Dave Brockie from GWAR and he and I actually had a talk about that game.

The hardest game that i ever beat was probably mega man 3. I remember the ending being totally epic with all kinds of parallel scrolling in space, fighting all the bosses, and dr wiley in like 3 forms. I remeber using all my energy tanks and then punking wiley the first time i ever played him and beating him with the littlest sliver of health left. The hardest game i ever played was probably samurai spirts 3 on level 8 difficulty. I can only beat that game on level 1 difficulty. Any of the oldschool game with limited continues would be enough to make my little cousin cry though.
