The Evil Within, AKUMU: One hit, you die. The Evil Within 2, Classic Mode: No upgrades, (meaning no ambush and bottle break) very scarce ammo, no autosaves, death kicks you back to your last manual save, AAAAANNNNNDDDDD... 7 saves. For the entire game. That you can't get back. At least you can take a few hits...

You can't beat halo on legendary? Why are we watching your videos if you can't even do that.....

No brutal from uncharted? Or grounded from tlou? I’m surprised
Jonathan Reisman (17 days ago)
this is hard but not surprised this wasn't in the list. arkham origins knightmare mode if you die the whole game restarts and you are playing on new game plus

... so I am a monster for completing the hardest mode on DMC 4... ... COOL!

Actually the most soul crushing mode in devil may cry is devil may cry 1 easy mode. Your so crap it just sits down and dies giving you a game win. Yes it's not hard but how soul crushing is it for a game to literally say your a pussy so hears some help

I know that the legendary difficulty in skyrim elder scrolls V isn’t unique but I’ll be damned if it isn’t one of the hardest fucking thing iv ever tried in my life and I’m salty af cause it wasn’t even mentioned in this video AT ALL

Any of the Doom games on hardest. They are brutal. Civilization 6 on Deity is equally brutal. they get improved production, gold income, science, faith, culture, and combat and experience bonuses for their units. They start with 4 free techs, 3 settlers, 5 warriors, and 2 warriors. I also noticed that at Emperor, Immortal, and Deity, they love nuking you.

Dead space 3 difficulties and metro 2033 difficulties were a piece a cake, well maby that's because I've played them over 20 times-no joke. Anyone remember the Outlast difficulties?

Ghost Recon Wildlands new Ghost Mode.... you have to complete the whole game again in one life and you have to unlock everything over and even WITH everything unlocked, added into the hardcore mode it’s absolutely ridiculous

What about DOOM 2016's Ultra nightmare?

Metro Ranger isnt that hard UNTIL (notice i said until) you reach the library, where you will be either raging or whimpering at every little sound and movement.

Stalker has the best difficulty mode, not surprising. Its very simple. The harder the setting, the more damage _everyone_ takes.

Metro Ranger Hardcore isn't even that hard... compared to other hardest difficulties in games. Then again maybe I've just played Metro too much.

Metro 3033 and metro last light ranger modes are my favorite game modes ever lol, they we're so fun and I loved playing with no HUD, it was just amazing. Hard yeah but hey

What about Doom’s “Ultra Nightmare”..... enemies basically one shot you, a regular imp takes 100 rounds to kill and it’s permadeath with little markers that mark every single place you failed

for xcom i hate it i hate that hit or miss shit you play rng the game every tactic and strategy is thrwon out the window

Dead Space 3 isn't hard at all in any respect. It's unquestionably the easiest of the three. DS2 hardcore was much harder. It's more of a trophy than a mode, I suppose, but beating Mega Man 9 without getting hit was rough.

I've completed XCOM: Enemy Unknown on Impossible difficulty and the Resident Evil HD remaster on Invisible Enemy mode. I spent 219 hours with XCOM though... RE only 61.

Master dificulty in far cry 3?¿ That is for purfectionists. Any shot that isn't a headshot is a waste of ammo as the enemys are only killed by headshots .. decently fast .... so stealth and snipers maybe the answer but even a sniper rifle can't kill a scummy, small enemy with a shot to the torso... only headshots... ... hardcore but fezable till now... but enemys kill you in a blink of a eye ... snipers? RIP , one shot.... AKs? 2 bars per burst .... 2 pirates almost killed me 5 times ... wtf

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.
Storey Gillingham (2 months ago)
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.

Akumu mode. Evil Within. YOU WILL DIE
nerevar x (2 months 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 (2 months 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.
nerevar x (2 months ago)
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.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Mein Leben should have been included here too

I died probably 27 times in Metro 2033 on ranger mode, mostly because of ammo and filter shortage Edit: Where's Ultra Nightmare mode from DOOM 2016?

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 (2 months 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.

Hell and Hell mode wasn't that difficult if you knew all the the counters to the bosses and had your timing down.

Scinohpytrid (3 months ago)
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

Minecraft's hardcore mode.

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..
