Glad to see Whitney get a mention. Battle Toads is no surprise; turbo tunnel is a huge roadblock. Pinwheel race is still the hardest part of that game for me though. I still can’t beat it consistently without pause buffering.

The number 10 entry is pretty weak I think. I know it was a personal experience, but my 7 year old daughter is playing the game for the first time ever right now and beat Croco on her second attempt.

Other than that I think it's a good list though I haven't played all of the games on it.

Honestly, I should have put Bowyer as the real difficulty spike, but thinking back on how many hours I wasted taking him on at level 3; that’s why he’s on the list.

Edit: Though I do admit it was my fault only for making it hard, but Croco was the point where the game said “get your butt in gear”.

Why? It was only 3 threads down the list in the first place.

Battletoads does not get any easier after the Turbo Tunnel. My first thought after reading that was:

"Hi, I'm the Ice Caverns. Have we met?"

The game is pretty simple and straightforward up until the speeder section of the Turbo Tunnel, then it cranks the difficulty to 12 and doesn't look back. I do, however, wholeheartedly support Battletoads being the #1 entry.

I like to add an honorable mention:
The ice block levels of Catherine.
Those stumped me good and I quit the game
