The game you just can't / couldn't finish on the hardest possible difficulty ?

Is there any game that you put all the effort on and you just can't finish it on the hardest difficulty simply because it is way too hard ?

Not that I've found. Unless you want to count something like Guitar Hero or Rock Band where expert drums is just beyond my skill level.

One game I couldn't finish on Professional made was Resident Evil 5.

The two bits that stopped me was the boss battle in Chapter 2-3 and Jill Valentine on Chapter 5-3.

Some who had done it had gotten friends to help them.

World at War was a complete bitch, still haven't done it 100% on my 360 or PS3 and I've tried and tried. I've done all of the others near enough but this takes the mick.

Spec Ops: The Line is also another that I gave up with due to fustration, will probably go back to it at some point but until then I'm not going to think about it.

Also Dead Space/2, can't bare to do it!

It's kinda unfair considering I haven't even unlocked Hardcore mode on it yet, but I think Dead Space 2 on Hardcore difficulty would be a real pain in the ass for me. Not only are ammo and supplies very limited (more than usual), but you can only save THREE TIMES. That's right. You can only save 3 times in Hardcore mode, meaning you have to make every step count, because one mistake will undo hours of hard work. Again, I haven't unlocked Hardcore mode yet, but I get the feeling that when I do, I'm in for a world of Necromorph rape.

Haven't touched it in a while, so my gaming skills may have honed in enough skill at this point, but Ninja Gaiden 2 was incredibly hard for me even on a lower difficulty.

Ninety Nine Nights, even on the easiest difficulty. I had never played any hack and slash games before, so I'm probably not used to how things are meant to be played. But for the life of me I struggled so much that I just give up. Especially when if you fail near end of the mission you would have to restart the whole thing over, no checkpoints what so ever.

I found UFC 2009 to be quite difficult during career mode, maybe it was because I didn't build my character right but I kept struggling in fights.

Smackdown vs Raw 2009, theres an achievement for getting 5 people into the hall of fame in career mode, I remember that being difficult and just stopped trying after a while.

Other than those, I can't really think of anything recent that comes to mind, If a game gets too difficult I'll give up after an hour trying really. I just hate difficulty related achievements.

From my brothers experience, he only beat Catherine on either easy or normal and he still had trouble with it.

From my experiences, guitar hero expert+ is difficult because I can't double bass to save my life, I can for a little bit but then I start hitting both feet at the same time.

Mortal Kombat 2, even on normal, Kintaro and Shao Kahn are so cheap with their massive health and damage

I can't think of any others right now but thats a few

I agree with UFC, I could hardly win a fight at all. Svr 2009 was easy enough just pretty time consuming I thought...

Yeah, CoD3... I'm playing it now and still manage to die even on easy... Still love those hand to hand QTEs, though! CoD: Classic, too, I don't think I could do it on vet. I have a few others that I doubt I could do on the highest difficulty.

I cannot seem to complete Mass Effect 2 on Insanity. I made it all the way to the last big battle without too much trouble, but I am stuck at the Collector Ship. I've watched strategy videos and everything. The problem being my team members die almost immediately and I didn't bring enough medi-gel. Unfortunately for me, I don't have a recent save that I can go back to so I can better prepare myself. It is the last achievement I need to 100% the game. I'm sure I will get eventually... but I traded in the game. I need to find it cheap somewhere since all I need is one more achievement.

That 61/62 drives me crazy!

Same here. I failed completely and traded it. I do want it back so I can have another go at it. Having just 1280g on it really is grinding my gears. Also want to go back and do Mirrors Edge on hard. I'm currently working through Hitman Absolution on Hard for my last aachievement. But most the time I play on normal.

CoD:WaW is the only one I can remember giving up on. Freaking grenade spamming bastards just burned my patience away, I wasn't aware that the Reichstag was a grenade factory when I started on veteran. I don't give up easily and it's the only game I can think of that I didn't persevere with once I'd started a hard play through.

I'll never finish CoD4 on Veteran. I've done most of the missions, but there are a few that I just know I won't be able to get, especially Mile High Club.

I don't have any examples. I really don't like to give up on the hard achievements even though I am struggling.

Not unless you count World At War, which I don't because it's just cheap cheating AI. I could beat it but I don't have the patience to sit through all that, it's just lazy from Acti/Treyarch.

I haven't yet beaten Blur on the hardest difficulty, but I haven't tried that much and sure I will when I get in the mood to play it again.

Nothing else though, any other game I've tried to beat on the hardest difficulty I've eventually done it.

Man, I had the worst week attempting veteran, I'm actually surprised I stuck through it. I think that's what put me off difficulty related achievements. Since then, If I get into a tough spot on a game I'll just give up. I don't want to find myself stressing out like I did back then.

My opinion. Some achievement which need to play with someone online is a problem. One trouble things is you need to play this game after this game release in short time ( About 3 month after release date ) because it is out of player to play with you if this game is get cold on market.

Lots.
  • Homefront, too much online, too long.
  • AvP, Marine on Nightmare is too damn hard. No checkpoints is bull.
  • Quake 4, impossible online and really hard.
  • And pretty much any other game with online that's hard to boost.
