Silver Surfer - Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) - Worst Video Games Ever
Avoid This Game At All Costs
If you've never played Silver Surfer on the NES, count yourself as lucky. This is without a doubt one of the worst games ever made. Why? Well, you probably know already, but it's hard to a degree that is absurd. It doesn't get much harder than this game in terms of 2d platformers. If you want to try and beat it, good luck. It will take a long time.
So, essentially, this game cheeses you to death over and over and over. That's why it sucks.
Basically everything that you touch kills you. You move very slowly, and enemies and projectiles are everywhere. There are stages where you have to micro maneuver your board around, and stages where you have no idea what you can and can't fly over. Sometimes the projectiles are hidden or impossible to see, while other times you're just cruising forward and a crap storm of bullets flies into your face. This isn't just one of the worst games ever, it's also one of the most frustrating video games ever made. Oh, Nintendo, why did you stamp a seal of quality on this turd?
Speed Run of the Whole Game. Yes, Somebody Spent Large Portions of Their Life On This Game That They Can Never Get Back. I Feel Sorry for Them.
How Stupid Were the Programmers, Anyway?
They included a Mega Man style select screen for the stages. I imagine they did this because they realized that the game was pretty hard - but did anyone even bother trying to play through and beat it when they made it? I doubt they did. This thing is beyond impossible. It just boggles the mind that a company could create a game and not bother play testing it for even a few days. It's like when you see people driving around late at night without headlights. How come these idiots haven't figured out that their lights are out? How many illegal substances were they carrying in the trunk?
The only thing that's good about this game is that it happens to have a really kick ass soundtrack. Too bad you won't get to hear a lot of the music though, since the game is virtually unplayable.
Now, realize that most of this article is tongue and cheek. Do I really think that Silver Surfer is impossible to beat? No. Anyone can beat it with enough practice. Seriously though, do you really want to sit there for a month or more memorizing a bunch of patterns in order to beat a lame game like this? If the answer is no, then that's the reason why this is impossible. Nobody wants to beat it, and nobody wants to play it. It's just too absurd to even play.
He's a superhero, people. He dies to... everything! If he touched an infant baby in this game he would die. I can't imagine there being anything much worse on the Nintendo Entertainment System in terms of difficulty - unless you want to count cryptic and confusing Nintendo stuff.
