When asked to name something hard one might suggest Mr. T or the Incredible Hulk. What you don't know is that there is nothing harder on this Earth than the video game Metal Slug. It is honestly one of the most punishing arcade experiences of my life.
Obviously it's designed to be this way since it prompts the player to feed more and more coins into the machine. It took me 41 continues to finish the entire game, that would work out at over $10 if I was spending quarters.
Why would anyone play such a difficult game? How about because Metal Slug is bursting at the seams with action and humor. Along with Turrican and Midnight Resistance it's one of the best side-scrolling, run and gun shoot-em-ups ever. Watching things blow up has never been so much fun.
But you'll be getting blisters pretty damn fast on the tips of your fingers.
