I cannot believe NO one mentioned Demon's Souls, which knocks all the Souls games out of the park.

Imagine fighting EVERY single boss on half health, the first time you encounter them, that's what being hollow meant when that came out.

None of this namby pamby Dark Souls health scheme ;p

Seems like you missed my post.

I did, where is it?

Demon's Souls was hard to plat. BUT. That ring. The Theif's ring I think it was called. It made 2 boss fights much easier. Including the last boss. I beat him 2 out of the required 4 times without it. Then, on the third fight, he was one hit killing me, and it became a chore to have to start over repeatedly, so I put it on and killed him with arrows with literally no resistance. I pussed out. Not proud, but I'll admit to it. Curious if you or anybody else used the ring to exploit the 2 bosses. I believe the other boss it worked on was Flame Lurker.

I did not use the theif's ring with Flame Lurker, I just decided to go against him using melee attack which resulted in sucking over 3 hours of my life to beat him and more than that on NG+. At that time I wasn't aware of the magic and arrow trick and even if I was i wouldn't use them because that ruins the game IMO

Flame lurker was my favourite boss fight. I literally jumped up from my couch and fist pumped when I beat him on melee combat. Best gaming feeling and moment ever!! Demon's Souls made you care sooooo much about your character's life. Your character's life meant so much to you because it took you back so far. It almost felt like your real life was interlocked with the character's. Other souls games are fun, but I care less about my character's life. Bloodborne is the only other Souls-ish game which is as satisfying as the origin Demon's Souls.



Recent Ninja Gaiden games were rough when even the base enemies could one shot you. Definitely some grumbling on the way to beat those.



The Last of Us on 'Grounded'. It's hard to beat the game without any ammo, every enemy has so much health, and you die instantly. Worth it though.

Pretty much everyone who beat Flame Lurker on Melee combat had the same exact feeling, you can take a look at youtube and see how people reacted after beating that boss. Whilst Flame Lurker was the hardest IMO, there were other bosses and instances where I had similar feeling, especially with Maneater, except it was more infuriating with Maneater especially when they push you and make you fall of the ledge.



Metal gear solid on extreme and european extreme is brutal. Died hundreds of times but eventually done it.



Call of Duty World at War on Veteran. The last part of the game was brutal.
