Oh no, I know. I've seen that cited as the reason the 'proper' SMB 2 never came out in the US. I just think we would have been able to survive somehow. lol

R-type series and Contra 3 come to mind. Also Actraiser 2. All for SNES.

On the PS, Megaman X6, ODT. I'm sure there are more.

It also seems like when a Japanese game (FFXII comes to mind) is released in the U.S., a newer and more awesome version is released in Japan shortly afterward. Damn you, Final Fantasy XII International Zodiac Job System! Damn you, I say!

I actually read a GameFAQs review of the FF12 International (the only one on the site), and it was rather lukewarm. It's apparently a fair bit easier than regular FF12, the new License Boards can be rather frustrating as your chosen jobs cannot be changed, the most powerful spells have be got from obscure treasure chests rather then being bought at shops, some of the new weapons have a very unfinished feel to them, and the most powerful new weapons also have be found from treasure chests on airships (which only have about a 1 in 1000 chance of containing the weapon you're looking for).

All in all, it had some improvements but some very questionable changes too.

But, still...there's more "International Versions" for games than just FFXII, right?

Star Ocean Till The End Of Time had one i think. Final Fantasy X i heard had one too. i dont see how many of the nintendo games could get any harder than they already were.

I know FFX did, but cool thing there was that the European version of FFX was so late that it was based on FFX International, meaning I effectively have that here. Unlike FF12 International, FFX International actually has improvements you'd want to have (raised difficulty, choice of sphere grids right from the start, dark aeons). I was disappointed the same didn't happen with FF12 until I read the above review and realized we got the best deal.

River Raid-Atari It was relentless non stop river raid'en!!!
(I still have nightmares!)

Street Fighter 2010-NES The game was cool graphically(for its time) but was such a pain.

Cobra Triangle-NES..could you beat the triangle? Freaken sweet times.

Nintendo and Atari were the king of non save one life start the stage over games..I could say most of em were fairly hard.

In more modern times..I'd have to say most of the Japanese (action) titles on the 360 have some crazy feats..but nothing takes the cake like racing for 50+hours in Need for Speed: Carbon and still not getting an acheivement..and thats an EA Game!

Consider this your official warning. posting in all caps and using "2" instead of "to" will result in an unsatisfactory mark on your official testing record. Followed by a temporary ban.
