Could Old Video Games Have Been Any Harder?

Old video games were super hard. I’m talking about classics from the days of Atari and Nintendo. Most of those games didn’t have save features and you we’re only given a 3 lives. Did you ever play Contra WITHOUT the cheat code?

Here are my picks for the hardest games I’ve ever played, all from the NES

  • Contra
  • Battletoads
  • Mike Tysons Punch Out
  • Ninja Gaiden
  • Mega Man
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Those games were hard, but imagine if they had a “hard” mode. I think I’d probably break all of my video games out of frustration. Check out this video to see what hard mode would’ve been like.
