    Ya know another one you left out of the vault was "Trojan". I still remember renting that from Safeway when game rentals first came out and that one was murderous. I still remember that Battletoad surf sequence was no walk in the park either but I polished it off as well as the game (no cheating either) But Ghosts and goblins was another story entirely, too frustrating to count the ways, and ninja gaiden should`ve made the cut guys. First game of it`s genre to have cut scenes and good ones at that. Would`ve liked to know where you ranked Bayou Billy, still get nostalgic beating Deliverance back water wannabes over the head wit my ugly stick, well there`s my two cents, those be fun times.

    BATTLETOADS!!!!!!! ARRRRRR that game nearly broke my gaming spirit. It made me feel inadequate. Till I stomped on it with my spiked boot.

    There are several more games that are difficult to me...
    #1 - Time Lord - No continues means that if you lose all of your lives, you have to start all over again. The time constraint is annoying enough, but the amigo boss in Round 2 just can't seem to die.
    #2 - Treasure Master - I respect that the game was designed for a contest, but shouldn't it be a bit easier for the players to win the game so they could be entered to the contest? No? Okay...
    #3 - Captain Planet and the Planeteers - Yea, not a good game completely. Having to tie your ammunition to your health bar is DUMB. Oh, and collision detection is r-tarded.
