The Most Hardest PS4 And Xbox One Games To Play
In the constant pursuit of exposure and mainstream popularity, difficulty and video games have become more and more estranged from one another. Whilst the arcade origins of the medium meant insanely hard A.I. would only result in more coins being expended to overcome the challenge, these days people are more likely to trade your game in, complain about it online, not feel like they’ve gotten their money’s worth or worse, not buy it at all, simply because they aren’t confident they’ll even make a dent.
Now for a 2D side-scroller completely soaked in charm – so much so that it negates any annoyances you’ll have when coming up against its screen-filling boss battles.
Playing as a bloodline of knights, every time you die, it’s your inheritor who takes up their parents’ quest. This means your abilities change every time, rather like a dice roll in regards to character buffs and which weapons trickle down. You can strengthen your family to get different classes (and thereby, different abilities), but the basics are always the same – you’re a knight going into a procedurally-generated castle to thwart evil and look for loot.
You’ll die thousands of times and form quite the wall display of fallen heroes – but every time you learn from the mistakes of the past, carry through some equipment for a better chance, getting that little bit better every time.
Oh, and if you unlock the ‘chronically flatulent knight’, pick them. If nothing else, you’ll gain one hell of a speed boost.
