Did you ever not finished game because of its difficulty?

Tempest X3 (PS1) for me. At the beginning I liked the game, but difficulty was EXTREME. After playing this game for 10 hours (and after I got stuck on 95th level) I've gone insane and broke game disk in half. Then on the next day I used front cover and instruction booklet as toilet paper. This was the most horrible waste of money I've ever did.

Did you have any similar experiences with video games?

I didn't finish this topic because of the difficulty does that count?

Perhaps you need glasses.

Super Meat Boy. I have made it to the dark world or whatever it was called.

Cave Story

I did beat it once on easy, but I don't feel like counting that. The final boss on normal is infuriating.

I don't finish 75% of the games I play so there's that.

Original Ninja Gaiden for the NES. I've gotten quite far, but can't beat it.

In the same vein, I haven't beaten Master Ninja Mode on Nokia Gaiden Black. Got to chapter 10 I think.

VVVVVV
I rescued all the crew members (as far as I know), so I'm not really sure what's left. I was playing the android port so it became nearly impossible at that point and I stopped.

I also have to beat the final boss in Guacamelee, but it's only been a few days and I'll get back on that soon enough.

Sword the Stars:The Pit.

117 hours on Normal and keep dying of hunger.

I often don't finish games that are too easy. There is nothing enjoyable in just breezing through games that don't have other redeeming things like story.

I can throw dozens of other NES games into the fray as well. Rygar, TMNT, and Bart vs the Space Mutants come to mind right away.

As far as recent games go, no.
