Do these even count as games?

I would go with the phrase “meat grinders” sooner. Whilst browsing the tropes page for Unwinnable games, I found this: a video for an unreleased (and probably/hopefully fictional) old NES game, called “Hitler’s Revenge”.

No, not that Hitler. This is a compendium of the funniest, cheapest… I’m not even going to say it.

I just wish that something this cruel and heartless existed.

Oh wait, it does! “I Wanna Be The Guy” is hereto help! IWBTG is a legend on the internets, telling of a game so hard that the FAQ has the questions “WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM?” and “APPLES DO NOT FALL UP!” A game where the difficulty is automatically set to hard, and if you set it down to medium, the easiest setting, your character gets a little pink bow in his hair.

And I’ve started downloaded it, out of curiosity.

If you like 8-bit masochism, then check it out here. Its only redeeming feature so far, beyond crossing the line twice, is great music. Stolen from other games. That I have to hear on repeat, as I redo the same level OVER and OVER.

What, you’re still here? You have more time to kill? Then go do the spellchecking on here, and try not to laugh/facepalm. Shooting fish in barrells it may be, but it’s not like I’m asking you to go through the youtube comments.

Possibly my favourite xkcd ever.
