Ghost and Goblins for sure. Also honorable mention goes out to Paper boy. Hell, I don't think I ever got past the second level of that bloody game.

Not like that, it's just hard by definition- so many variables and things to worry about mechanically. I love that kind of stuff, but it's by far the hardest game around in terms of skill cap- I played professionally for a year.
It is so incredibly straightforward though. Early scouting tells so much about a player, one can easily shape the game with an early build to win in their favor. Few people have mastered the manipulation of micro to successfully beat the power of a good macro, or the utilization of an individual unit, which is what the majority of variables come down to.

I didn't know you're Korean.
Only part time.

There are many more variables beyond the scope of micro.

RE: The Most Absurdly Difficult Video Games Ever!
I am well aware of the calculations one needs to make to squeeze out that last Archon before pushing. I know all about when and where to construct a supply depot. I know all about scouting to see how much gas a player is getting, how many collectors he has, and what he might be going depending on the amount of beginning units he has.

But, at the end of the day, one cannot calculate quite enough. It would be best that you simply construct an elastic build that can be adapted for seemingly any situation, as opposed to fretting about what actual build to go by. It is purely mechanical, and the only thoughts you should be making is about timing and unit placement.

That's why you was platinum, and I was GM.

I'll go with WoW 4.2: Cataclysm-Rage of the Firelands. RAGNAROS HC was simply unbeatable for any human being. Most hardcore raids got stuck with the guy for several months and decided to stop playing the game until new content released.

Zoids Legacy -
This game is really boring, you have to be EXTREMELY desperate to play this game. Along with poor graphic qualities, the wild ZOIDS become harder to fight and you can't run away from them all the time. (I think this is based on your ZOID team. )

Action 52 -
OH MY GOD, this game glitches out. Some of the games don't even work, and it has bad controls.

Batman Forever -
This was always confusing, if this is the right game I recall. It had poor weapon control and it was just a beat 'em up?(?) I don't remember because I only played it a few times but I could never really get far.

The Lion King - SNES
The game is actually fun, but the last few levels are extremely difficult. I still haven't beaten this game today.

Pokemon - for the Nintendo 64
The only good way to beat this game, is to import your team from Red/Blue/Yellow, however the AI becomes extremely difficult once you get into the higher levels, cheap too. If you fail once for certain towers - you have to start over from the beginning. The Jap. version is even more difficult.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.
Bury me with my guns on, so when I'm cast out of the sky, I can shoot the devil right between the eyes.

I don't know if I've said it yet or not, but the original Prince of Persia.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

If you can get past lvl3 you are some kind of fucking god.
