Holy Taco’s Eight Frustrating Games You Never Beat
Everyone’s got that albatross, that white whale – that one game that no matter how hard you tried, you never beat could it.
Some of us have more than one, and in fact, our friends over at Holy Taco have eight of them listed today. Here’s an awesome excerpt from their list:
“Battletoads (NES, 1991): There is a reason this game is on the top five of everyone’s “hardest fucking games ever” list. Battletoads is the antichrist of games. It is the Al Pacino in The Devil’s Advocate of games. It’s the Commodus, King Joffrey and that old bastard from Braveheart all rolled into one, of games. I’m not sure what sadistic programmer made it so you could make an amphibious creature on steroids hopping around on a jet hover vehicle making jumps that he CLEARLY HIT only to fall into the ether. Despite the heavily masturbatory appeal of the game’s final boss, this game frustrated many 80s babies into submission. If anyone ever told you they beat it alone without the use of a Game Genie, THEY LIED TO YOUR FACE.”
