Agreed... Homeworld 2 was, at times, ridiculously difficult. Mission 3 and 4 had me despairing. But I don't know if I would call it the hardest game, for the rest of it was far easier than the first. That level with the battlecruisers wasn't too bad either; taking them on and out one at a time worked for me.

Re: What is the hardest game you ever played?

Hmm, this could take some thought.

I suppose Final Fantasy X was one of the hardest. I hated the sphere grid and found it awfully confusing. :/

Re: What is the hardest game you ever played?

No way! FFX was realllly easy!
In my opinion, The hardest games I've played would have to be Ninja Gaiden and Homeworld 2...

And don't forget the very first Thief game, That was really hard.

Re: What is the hardest game you ever played?

I don't think I mentioned this one previously but there was a game on the Commodore 64 (and probably other systems as well) called Impossible Mission where you had to run/jump around avoiding robots and other obsticles whilst collecting clues and its safe to say it pretty much did exactly what it said on the tin.

I didn't find Final Fantasy X too difficult, but I hated the Sphere Grid, too. Far too confusing, and really difficult to get the things you wanted unless you planned far ahead in advance - which isn't entirely my style at times with games!

Re: What is the hardest game you ever played?

Hardest game . . .

This question is too easy. I might have even answered it somewhere in this thread, but there is no way I am going to remember for certain.

Might & Magic, Book One: Secret of the Inner Sanctum

This game will kick your ass. Do not play it unless you are a sadist. Do not play it unless you are the kind of person that beats every videogame on "advanced" or "hard" mode overnight. Do not play it unless you are a self-professed gaming pro. MM1 will dump you into the middle of a strange town with no sense or feel for who you are, where you are going, or what your ultimate goals are. The entire game is one like massive RPG-riddle, a joke played upon the gamer. Only after several years of fighting my way through as a very young teenager (11-13ish) did I realize the plot of the game was to discover the meaning of life. WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? Why would anyone make such a game? I know it came out for a few platforms back then, but the most difficult version was the NES I believe. In any event, it is the one I played. More Might & Magic games were cranked out as years passed, all a bit more fair than their mighty predecessor, but the entire series generally holds a reputation for being stupidly hard and frustrating. The franchise fell off the map a few years ago and is not likely to ever rear its ugly head again.



Cheers,
WD

PS: The game was so hard that at the end of the instruction booklet was provided an address. If you took a picture of the final screen at the end, you could send off and were awarded a certificate for completion. The instruction guide, I might, was big and fat but utterly worthless for helping you advance in the game itself.

Re: What is the hardest game you ever played?

Well some people have said that Homeworld 2 was hard, but I found it far easier that the predecessor (spel?) Homeworld - which also had a far better story; but if oyou want a challenge then go and play Baldurs Gate 2 without ever playing Baldurs Gate 1. It was so hard I still haven't finished it - though thats a little more to do with actually getting enough hours to finish it!
Other than that try playing Fire Emblem The Sacred Stones on the GBA without losing a single character - the auto save is so evil and the character always dies just as your about to kill the end of level boss -far harder than most Pc strategy games.

Re: What is the hardest game you ever played?

I have been trying Dawn of War the Dark Crusade, unnnnnn, why do they make these games so annoying. Easy, its no problem, try hard, or even the medium setting, grrrrrrrr. I took the Space marines and have been handed my head so many times, and theyre supposed to be the easiest! It just gets a bit frustrating. After playing Dawn of War and Winter assault I thought no worries.

Now I'm going home to cry!

Re: What is the hardest game you ever played?

I'd probably say Legend of Zelda, second setup (where you use "Zelda" as the username.)

That freaking thing was HARD. I couldn't even get the white sword in the second setup. Though the white sword was about as far as I got with the first setup....

It gets worse. On Windows Vista, it tends to crash without warning.
