Super meat boy is the only one that comes to mind. The others are just tedious.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is the only one that comes to mind. Playing it on the hardest difficulty (forget what it was called) with Ironman mode enabled (which prevents you from loading an older save) is the closest you can get to a pure, unadulterated, nigh-impossible challenge.

Eh. They're only hard in the beginning. Once you get the hang of them, they're no harder than any other action game.

I'd agree that XCOM is an utter dick on the hardest mode.

I also found Mass Effect to be really really hard on Insanity.

Killzone 2 on elite difficulty.

Killzone 1 bot matches playing against the ISA on hardest difficulty.

Most FPS games were hard for me to finish, due to boredom..

I'm not sure about hardest, but got a greater sense of achievement and satisfaction from beating Dark Souls than any other game in this generation. Enchanted Arms could get a dishonorable mention as the most difficult game this gen, as I did finish that game despite the storyline being amazingly terrible.
