Video games are meant to do many things, but many times players go to these titles to challenge them. They play to earn every level, every ability, every reward, and of course, earn the right to say that they beat the game. If a game is too easy, we feel we wasted our money. However, if it’s too difficult we “rage quit” and sometimes don’t pick it up for a long time. This raised a question among Redditors, “What Nintendo games have you never finished because they were too difficult?”
While you might not think that Nintendo makes difficult games, the opposite is true. They’re known for making tough games. Especially in franchises like Metroid, Fire Emblem, Legend of Zelda, and even certain Mario titles. So there are difficult ones out there, and players were all too happy to recall some of their struggles.
A player mentioned that Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze was giving both them and their friend a lot of trouble:
“My friend and I are on the last level of Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze. Weve played the whole game co op but cant beat the final boss..”
Another title that was mentioned was the original Metroid. Apparently, once they got the Morph Ball they got stuck on what they were supposed to do next, and death kept happening. Metroid 2 and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes were also listed among them.
The Mario Galaxy games also got mentions. Not because they were hard per se, but getting certain stars and completing the “perfect run” was something that was very challenging to players. So, what are the Nintendo games that you couldn’t beat? Or the ones that took you forever to beat? Let us know in the comments below!
