The Witcher 2- Insane. Not only is it Dark Mode-level difficult, it also includes perma-death and deletes your save when you die. Oh, and almost everything one-shots you. And failing some QTEs could kill you, too.

NGL, I watched this hoping to see something I've beaten on here. Turns out I need to get good.

X-Com Impossible Ironman should have been #1.  Not saying it's impossible, just saying it cannot be done.

nerevar x (8 days ago)
seriously if you wanna see a difficulty that will break you try perfect darks perfect dark mode and set everything to MAX. the game becomes fucking impossible to beat. THAT is a difficulty i would call "this will break you"
nerevar x (8 days ago)
also lol at resident evil remake modes. seriously? invisible enemy can be played on VERY EASY since its its own mode. when everything dies in 1-2 hits it doesnt matter if its invisible to begin with. one dangerous zombie? thats not even a difficulty setting seriously. its just 1 zombie beeing replaced by forest. and only in the 1st 3rd of the game. then he is fully gone. and he isnt even hard to avoid at all. and that is clearly not a difficulty setting. so it doesnt belong on such a list.

pure survival mode on ds3 is not hard LOL. its all about planning ahead. its not really gonna break you seriously. classic mode is way harder due to the base guns beeing trash in that entry of the series. there is also hardcore mode. that one is easyly the most difficult mode. as 1 death = back to square 1.

The Evil Within 2 Classic Mode. No autosaves, you can't upgrade your weapons or abilities and only get a total of 7 saves the entire playthrough. Now THAT was rough.

The Shadows Rushed Me in Max Payne 3. I completed New York Minute Hardcore. It was brutal. I died twice on Becker (final boss) and had to start over from the very beginning. But damn, by my final run, I could waltz through the airport terminal using only 1 painkiller.

FUCK THE FUCKING FUCK OUT OF HELL OR HELL MODE!!! I legit lost my sanity to that mode, the dreams/nightmares, the waking up at 5am sweating shouting "I'VE FIGURED IT OUT!" just to turn my console on and get molested again... Didn't complete it until last year, bought it at release 😭
Dominic Ybarra (18 days ago)
Ranger mode wasn't that hard. I never maxed out the ammo I could have and all my guns had suppressors after I could pay for them. Take it slow and it's a lot easier than you'd think... On Last Light, good luck.

Ninja Gaiden, like any of them? I've played all of these games on the difficulties listed except for X-Com because I've never played it but they are babies compared to that game.

I did the hell and hell me and nym hard mode saying it was difficult would be the understatement of the century i thought that i died like a hunderd times only coming out with the tiniest bar of health you can possibly or impossibly imagine if you want to feel bad about yourself and feel incompetent for not completing this be my guest if do not want to feel like that better be prepared to sit infront of your pc or console for hours on end so that you can finally get past a boss or that one fucking level for those who completed this you have my unconditional respect

Eeehr, I finished both Metro Games on Ranger Hardcore.. It's not that hard. In Metro Last Light there were QUIITE a lot of forced combat arenas with bullet spongy enemies however, which was quite frustrating..

I always remember when i tried to play Sniper Elite 3 in authentic, so authentic that made a german who was firing a nebelwerfer hear the shot of my welrod about 5 meters from his position, while the nebelwerfer was making the loudest noise as possible while firing, after that shit, i didn't play the game anymore

Those "P.S." videos at the end are really getting annoying. There's already a request for sharing, liking and subscribing (which is already pretty boring) at the beginning, so another one at the end is just desperate.

Finished Ranger mode, since this is the only way you should play Metro games, duh. And Classic mode in Dead Space 3, becouse its unlock the Engineer armor for Isaac! Also I would suggest Ori and the Blind Forest difficulty mode. That game wants you dead, there are many instant-I-dont-care-how-many-life-points-you-have death traps, the game requires split second reaction times and the knowledge where everything is. And in this mode not only everything that does not kill you in one hit smacks you so hard that it realy does not matter, like in hard mode that much, like in hard mode, but if you die ONCE (my first walkthrough took like over 1000 deaths, the second only 50) its game over, you need to restart the howl thing (you can also save scum by manually uploading the save file from the game folder everytime and then, but thats cheating and who would do that). Also Glass Soul mod for Hollow Knight - that guy who made that mod is INSANE! Its basically rework of HKs Steel Soul, a mode where if you die once its over and you need to start the game from scraps). But in Glass Soul if you get hit ONCE its over.

HOW THE FUCK DID DOOM (2016) ULTRA NIGHTMARE NOT MAKE THE LIST MINOR ENEMIES WILL LIKELY KILL YOU IN 2 HITS ANY BIG DEMON IN 1 HIT AND ANY DEATH MAKES YOU RESTART THE GAME GTFO OF HERE
Knight And SpaceShip (1 month ago)
Ultimate vault hunter mode from borderlands 2? Enemies have 4x more HP then the normal mode (2x then true vault hunter mode) and the enemies have health regen! even if you are hitting them! meaning your DPS has to be higher then there HP Regen rate to even damage the goddamn enemy. Also it scales the enemies at your level (mostly 0-2+ levels higher then you) Aleast the mode improves alot slag which is useless in the other modes but it's annoying at the same time as you gotta switch to a slag weapon and once the enemy is slagged, switch to another weapon. This mode is nothing like the first two modes and makes you change your style of gameplay if you even want to have a chance. alot people just stick to true vault hunter because of its huge difficulty difference. aleast on the pre-sequel they made it much more forgiving.

Easily the toughest mode in any game I have ever tried was Last of us grounded mode. I played the game on the PS3 before this difficulty was added, so when I got the PS4 remaster I clicked on it thinking it was the equivalent of Uncharted's crushing mode. Boy was I wrong. I went from essentially finishing the game on hard mode on the PS3, skipping crushing and going all the way to grounded, all because I was not paying attention. I did manage to complete the game in that mode, and while it did make for some frustrating moments (especially the boss fight in the gym), but the sense of achievement at the end was something else.

Enemy Unkown?
Branden Lucero (1 month ago)
Invisible Enemy was easy as shit. and One Dangerous Zombie is not a mode, it's a feature. Also, Hell or Hell mode only adopts "Sons of Sparda" difficulty, which is a step below Dante Must Die.

Glad I ran into this video, I've just finished Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux in Survival/Ranger Hardcore mode within one week, and it freaking broke me because the ennemies detection range and reaction speed are insane. Even hiding deep in the shadows cannot avoid you being detected anymore and you die in 3 hits. Thankfully, they didn't remove the checkpoints, so you don't have to worry about having to redo the whole level or even game. I've also finished Dead Space 3 in all modes and difficulties, and here's a funny thing : it took me the same amount of time to beat it in easy difficutly and in classic mode, with a difference of just one minute.

The Dead Space one sounds like what the game should have been. Also, XCOM impossible isn't that hard, you just have to play it like a rogue-like and practice.

Bleach is overrated. A good anime shouldn't go over 24 episodes.
