Did you ever not finished game because of its difficulty?
Ghouls N Ghosts, Anyone?
We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong.
We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

Weirdly, I've beaten both TMNT and Bart vs the Space Mutants (if that's the Simpsons game I'm thinking of). There were two RPG's for the NES that I could never even get close to beating (unfortunately I think they were obscure, can't remember their names), but for the platformers, I've actually done pretty well since I was young. I used to have to use the Konami code for Contra, but I can beat Contra with regular lives four out of five times probably.

Also the despawning enemies, so if you do suck...you can literally just walk to the boss with nothing in front of you.
100s of attempts and I still haven't retrieved the Orb of Zot...

Though despawning enemies also made it a little tougher to grind souls, so its a bit of a trade off.
If possible, I'll just cheatengine a game that's too hard for me to beat, tbh (I can only remember doing this once though)
I got tired of Frozen Synapse and Spacechem because they got pretty annoyingly hard later on and stopped playing them. Can't think of any others

Ended up rage quitting on a certain boss.
What's a knockout like you doing in a computer-generated gin joint like this?

Hoshigami on the PS1. F*** that game.

This has only happened for old games. I don't know of any games from the last 20 years where the difficulty was the ultimate deterrent.
