Most point n click adventures are stupidly hard, because the puzzles are so stupid. "Use bottled sunshine with fart hammer" or something, really ridiculously obscure stuff.

By the way games set to a really hard difficulty dont count, they have to be just plain frikkin hard.

With regard to metal slug, the arcade versions are pretty hard, I have them emulated so I can just punch the insert coin as many times as I like, but some parts are just stupid, the old 1-million-projectiles-coming-at-you-from-all-angles-at-different-speeds syndrome. 1 hit kill of course. And when you die you revert to your pea shooter default weapon.
