16 Incredibly Difficult Video Game Levels and Moments

It's time for another fabulous list of sentimental video game information! 

This time, we're going to take a look at some of the hardest video game levels and moments from games released before 2005. This list is not limited to these games; go ahead and add your own in the comments below if you'd like to see them added.

You'll notice that this particular list doesn't really have many newer games in it; there's a very good reason for that. Newer games have a much higher complexity level and are really more difficult than a lot of these earlier games. Putting them in the same list felt a bit like pairing up a tangerine with an orange--similar, but really not quite the same, because one is much easier to peel.

Another list is forthcoming for newer games. Happy reminiscing!

    Have you played F-Zero GX on the Gamecube? If so, that should definitely be included on this list, some of those story missions were a nightmare on the harder difficulties.
