I thought I'd start another Vote to Win, so this one'll be about levels, or parts, or worlds (anything will do) of video games you think are tough, or irritating. This'll start after Vote to Lynch is over.

I'd like about 100 50 nominations, but I'll shorten it if we can't get that.

When you're nominating, say the level or the part of the game you want to nominate, and then mention the game in brackets. You don't need the name of the level to be completely correct. When the polls come around, you have to vote for the level you think is the hardest.

Re: V2W: Hardest Video Game Level

You can also nominate bosses, by the way, but I'd like to have a limit to the amount of bosses, because I'd imagine there'd be more infamously tough bosses than levels. Maybe something like 25?

Re: V2W: Hardest Video Game Level

Does the True Arena from Kirby Super Star Ultra count?

If not...

Hell Temple (La-Mulana)
Sacred Grounds (Cave Story)

Re: V2W: Hardest Video Game Level

Actually, scratch that allowing bosses stuff, this is just about levels or worlds, or stuff like that.
