Through various seg-ways, puzzles, dungeons, set-pieces, and mission layouts, there are always those one missions that takes everyone numerous tries to complete--if they haven't given up on it already. When you just want to shove your controller up the ass of the developer for making your blood pressure rise, from sitting through such a daunting task to complete. I myself can't even begin to list the games that come to mind that have turned me over to the dark side with just one mission. I guess the point of the game is to be challenging, but it's like they sometimes shoe-horn these kinds of missions in at the last moment and then give them unnecessary conditions that make them difficult. Sometimes you even have to face them after going through an entire mission prior to that one with the same health and barely any health boosters or items to assist you.
I also remember back when I played through Uncharted 2 and I got to that part where the blue possessed, cursed people or whatever had came out and they were mad overpowered and I had like no ammo to fend for myself really, plus the support was being pretty useless. On that note, the same thing happened on on The Last Of Us, when I was on the part where that creeper starts chasing you around in the diner as you play with Ellie. It was damn near impossible to beat on the harder difficulty. The list goes on and on because the hardest mission doesn't even have to relate to a boss or time restraints or handicaps, it can be literally anything. There are obviously games out there designed to fuck people over, like Dark Souls or that one game where you play as the little cube and then hop across platforms to avoid vanquishing and having to start all the way over (Probably should of done research on it before mentioning it here, but this is all just from the mind), but there's many games out there like that one anyway that are indie-based.
Additionally, since everyone has a game that gave them migraines in the time of excelling past that point, I would also like to know what game is universally hard for every gamer. Like, is there a game mission that absolutely no gamer can pass on the first attempt or even the first few attempts? Some games have the intention of never being beatable, but many people find ways of exploiting that overtime. It's be interested to see which ones you all come up with. More importantly though, which game mission is the hardest to beat and why? Comment!
