Old classic NES games aside, what are some of the hardest games you've played and finished from current or last gen? Not really asking about base difficulty like in Soulsborne games, but the hardest difficulty modes in games that would otherwise be a breeze to go through.
Never had the patience to even try single save file, no checkpoint modes (such as Ironman in Xcom) or die-and-start-all-over modes (Dead Space), but I definitely enjoy harder difficulties as long as they don't require absurds amounts of time. They make you appreciate some games a lot more. In some cases, they remind me of how it felt not being able to get past some sections in old 90's games and taking turns with whoever was there with you.
Do you enjoy hard difficulties SW?
