#RTCQ Levels (we hate)Hey RT,

The time has come. After reminiscing about your favorite game moments last week, it's time for you guys to vent all of your frustrations against the virtual bastards that made your life a living hell!

What is a level you played over and over again because you JUST COULDN'T BEAT IT?

There's a little Michael Jones in all of us. Why don't you let him out in this journal?

My answer:
[EDIT: Totally just realized my answer wasn't posted]
Game: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Level: The Fire Temple

Surprised? Yes, it is true; I had an insanely difficult time traversing the Fire Temple because of a STUPID LEDGE THAT SHOULDN'T EVEN EXIST! Okay, so SPOILER ALERT, there's a room in the Fire Temple where you jump around on metal platforms while a wall of fire chases you. In this room, there is a locked door. Now, this door sits atop a rather tall structure in the middle of the room and it appears that trying to jump to this ledge would end with a dip in the lava pit. So, I tried everything else. Hook Shot? Nope. Bombs? Nope. Hammer? Nope. Every single song on the god damned ocarina? That's a big NOPE.
Finally, I cracked. I looked up a guide, I searched for the Fire Temple, and I couldn't believe what I read.

"Jump to the ledge..."


All I had to do was JUMP!? BULLSHIT! There was no way that little fairy boy could make such an impossible leap!

But of course...it worked.

But you know what? I still think it's bullshit. The climbing animation is totally off, you should not be able to make that jump, and dear god, NAVI IS USELESS.

Whew! Glad that's out of my system!

Piston hondo from the first punch out

when I was younger I used to never be able to dodge his rain of punches special move and even on the recent Wii punchout that move is still very hard to beat
He may have been the first boss but beating him felt like beating mike tyson himself

I am currently trying to get through Batman: Arkham City on the hardest mode. I am stuck in Poison Ivy's level (As Catwoman)...I'm punching the couch cushions...I have shouted things in my living room that would make my mother ground my 32 year old ass for months.

I've been trying to finish the last Catwoman challenge for a while now. I know exactly how you feel.

The mission in Halo: Reach where you have to make your way into the building, kill the brutes and hit a button. You can either take out Wraiths, Choppers, Hunters, Brute Chieftains and various baddies 1 by 1 or try to ninja your way through the window to avoid everyone and hit the button. Oh - on Legendary. Single player ;D

Oh, and every single fight mission in Mortal Combat: Deception on the xbox.

I don't remember where I just rmember THIS game as being stupid hard at one point. And then I came back to it when I was older and wiped the floor with it.

Shin Akuma from Street Fighter Alpha 2, on my SNES.... He wrecked me all the fucking time. Finally one night I was in the zone while playing Ryu. I DESTROYED him first round, he DECIMATED me second round, and third round was down to the wire... but I finally defeated him... and immediately shut off my SNES, pulled the game out, and have not played it since.. I knew immediately it was a one-time deal that I would never be able to recreate.

Any Halo 3 level with the Flood on legendary with the mythic and famine skulls on. Hardest shit ever....
#24  Posted 3 years ago
That stupid level on final fantasy XII where you need to save the stupid princess on the airship and need to fight like 4 judges and a ton of guards. >:(
Someone (me) might have played the game without upgrading weapons and stuff... Ever. And also someone might have thought that multiple save files were dumb and ignored all the prompts that say "you will not be able to leave this place easily save to a new file"
I suck at final fantasy.

The last fucking run in Ninja Gaiden(Black), Master Ninja, the rest of the game you could just advance by chunks, kill a monster over and over and buy fucking everything, BUT the last 2 chapters were straight, no pauses, no saves and NO GODDAMN SHOP!

The 2 chapters went like: monsters, ice sloth boss, monsters with satan's help, tentacle boss, monsters with a lot of satan's help, lava dragon boss, full on bitch satan, bone dragon boss, pissed of satan on his period, all of the above bosses, then satan transformed into a fire-skull shooting super horned skull, then the final boss which was hulk and hades baby, on acid and steroids.

Fuck Ninja Gaiden, I broke 4 Xbox controllers doing that, I came MONTHS after thinking "Time has passed, I'm gonna kick the living shit out of all of them"

Nope, fucking impossible, goddamn it Ninja Gaiden.

The entire section of Uncharted 3 where you have to rescue Sully from the pirates. Not only was it a challenging section, it had nothing to do with the main story, and the only rewarding part about beating it was that I knew I would never have to play it again.

That title of "Level I can not beat" was from Final Fantasy X and the level: Lord Braska's Final Aeon. For almost 9 years, I never past that boss, until with a help of a friend and an internet reviewer I manage to beat him in little time.

Current "Level I can't beat" title: Ninja Gaiden Sigma: Murai Boss Battle. Even with all of my ninja skills, I still can't defeat this douche of a boss. Completely unfair.
