20 hardest games for the original NES console

The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) revolutionized the gaming industry, overshadowing Atari and becoming a household favorite.

Titles like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghosts ‘n Goblins captivated players with their challenging gameplay.

Battletoads, often likened to TMNT, stood out for its intense difficulty. Silver Surfer, though lesser-known, earned a reputation for being nearly impossible.

Despite its challenging nature, Mega Man's initial installment laid the foundation for a beloved franchise.

The enduring popularity of the Mega Man franchise is remarkable, considering the formidable difficulty of its inaugural title.

While each installment presents its own challenges, the first game's difficulty was sometimes unintentionally erratic, adding to its unique charm and legacy.

After breezing past Glass Joe, the challenge intensifies with each successive opponent like Soda Popinski or Mr. Sandman. The ultimate test awaits in the final showdown against either Mr. Dream or Mike Tyson, depending on the game version.
