I never beat Ninja Gaiden, Battletoads, or Mega Man 3.

Come to think of it, I don't think I ever finished the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for NES either.

Ok, I have a question for you guys, since we're harkening back here...

Would anyone consider buying a coffee table book of the NES era? A sort of visual history of the system, with lots of pictures of games, packaging, reviews, comments from publishers and developers, in somewhat of the style of old Sansweet Star Wars book?

gran turismo 3 is really hard, actually just really long. I dont have that kind of attention span. especially for the 2 hour races where you are required to use lousy cars...just so boring

I'm having a heck of a time beating All Star Cup Mirror Mode in Mario Kart:Double Dash. Reflexes play a big role here, as you want to turn right, yet you need to turn left! Plus, All Star Cup is all 16 races, which means you'll be playing for at least 30 minutes.

I'll edit this with a full list of hard games for me later once I think of some more.

OK, I have a new hate: Ninja Gaiden Xbox! This is evil hard. Its a killer game though, and that says a lot coming from me - I'm about as jaded as it gets. Cool game.

Well, its on my list of Someday I'll Get Around To Its. I never seem to find the time or really the motivation, but I certainly have all the materials and since I'm sadly now considered a game industry old schooler, it seems up my alley.  I was just curious to see if anyone would find it interesting.

I would depending on the price point.  I think it is a great idea, but wonder if it would be profitable.  Somehow I think that most folks would rather play then read about old school games.   Kids nowadays for sure, so you would be banking on a certain age group.
