Back in the '80s, video games didn't have the advanced storylines of today; {{Excuse Plot}}s were the norm. So much of the feeling of accomplishment one could derive was from overcoming the insane difficulty that the games provided, if only so one could {{brag|gingRightsReward}} to one's friends. [[GoddamnedBats A plethora of enemies]] and difficult jumps were not just the name of the game, they ''were'' the game. These games weren't just hard; they were ''[[TitleDrop Nintendo Hard!]]''

When only one or few levels or areas of the game are Nintendo Hard, you're probably dealing with ThatOneLevel, or SNKBoss if it's the end. If the game reaches an obscene difficulty at a certain point and never looks back, look for DifficultySpike. Examples of Nintendo Hard head-to-head fighters generally go under TheComputerIsACheatingBastard, since crazy-hard opponent AI is nigh-universally the culprit. EarnYourFun is a common argument for those who like such abusingly difficult games.

Contrary to the claims of some derisors, modern Nintendo games can still be Nintendo Hard - they just tend to save it for the {{Brutal Bonus Level}}s (or HarderThanHard difficulty settings) rather than spreading it out throughout the entire game.

* No way to [[DifficultyLevels adjust the difficulty]], or doing so is pretty much superficial.

* No way to [[DifficultyLevels adjust the difficulty]], or doing so is pretty much superficial. Even those that did allow difficulty changes featured EasyModeMockery, making it often not worth the time to even play on Easy.
