Top 5 games from Childhood considered impossible but I beat

"It's impossible" said many. "It's too tough" said some. "ALMOST" is most commonly heard. When I heard these sayings. It's my job to say, "It wasn't so hard." Yes they were hard, but NOT impossible.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

It's always the same story with this one. "The swimming level" "the damn level" yes I was plagued with this task. I however was able to make it through this nightmare and onto greener pastures. Stage 3 had tricky jumps in the sewer. Stage 4 had spikes and Stage 5 had underground monsters that would eat you alive but Stage 6 was the mother of them all.
See the full review, "Bogus dudes! Our game is a kids game isn't it?".

Played on the SNES All Stars Mario cartridge, it was the same Super Mario Bros that we all had except ramped up challenges  More complicated mazes in Bowsers castle, power down mushrooms, and reverse warp zones. Not to mention the cheesy traps like super springboards that send you way off screen and even wind gusts. No real tricks to this one other then alternating with Mario and Luigi for some levels.
Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse [Wii]

Taking things back to the original action platformer that Castlevania was and away from the RPG elements of it's direct sequel and many fans rejoiced. Then they screamed HELP ME at the games murderous challenge. Similar to the above Mario title but moreso in what it brought to the table with new allies to help you on your quest and more enemies to slay along with it's branching path ways.
Legacy of the Wizard

Exploring, experimenting, it was all important before your quest for the family's crowns to unlock a powerful sword that can destroy the dragon that is set to return. A LOT of backtracking is required with characters going into the dungeons for items as well as  finding items and solving puzzles.  When I was given this game, the owner promised me money if I got through it without hint guides or cheatbooks. I failed.
Mega Man

How could this be hard with only 10 levels? Actually it is. Some of the bosses could be taken on from the start, the others can't and THEY'RE weapons will KILL you in a scant 3 hits.  No passwords, no RUSH dog, no energy tanks.....Ow. Again, there are no secrets short of exploiting a pause glitch to further damage enemies with your attacks and doing this to win ISN'T FAIR. It's cheating.

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

Fun game but damn hard compared to the others. Megan Man 2 was really fun to play on difficult after all these years.

I'm wimpy -- every SNES game seemed unbeatable to me, but there were a few that I managed to whoop! Like some Super Mario and Donkey Kong games :D Nice list!

A lot of these games you played cause they were fun and some of them you just had to have that stubborn energy to see them through. Some of these games I didn't complete until I picked them up years later. The old NES era is gone where some games were just seen as impossible. Now almost any game is beaten within a week.

Sometimes I play for the sake of playing, but I always love being able to truck through a game, especially with flying colors. I was so proud of myself for being able to beat all of Super Mario World and a couple versions of Donkey Kong over one spring break. Unfortunately, I could not find all of those huge DK coins :P
