Of all the games I've ever beaten, Metroid and Castlevania 64 stand out as some memorable toughies.
Of the two, I think Metroid was the most difficult. Castlevania 64 had some moments that were really just difficult because of the awkward transition to 3D. The end boss battles were difficult. Much rage was had.

Castlevania 1. After very little thought. I might be back.
Yes I fail. No one cares. Especially not me.
Playing the original A.P.B from Midway and arresting criminals like "Freaky Freddy" was quite a challenge.
Are you not Entertained ?!?

Ah battletoads. The bane of my existence. Never was able to beat it
Definitely Battle Kid dude. I highly suggest watching the 3 part series on youtube of the Game Grumps playing it, the ending alone is worth the arduous journey as Arin descends into madness.
Zelda 2 for me.
What kills it? MOMENTUM. Zelda 2 looks like a platformer but uses fighting game battle system while keeping the slippery ass moment from the original SMB.
in terms of a fair challenge, I'd say Megaman 2 or battle toads but in terms of the game being broken, id say sonic 06?
Yeah, I don't speak much...

Even if it counted it's hardly the "hardest" ever. Meat Boy has PERFECT responsive controls and unlimited continues.
It's easy to 106% meat boy.
Castlevania makes me wanna ram my skull against a brick wall
LITERALLY ALL THE FORUM THREADS I'VE MADE!!!(last updated December 10th 2017)
Have you ever fallen asleep watching a documentary about insomnia?
"Hardest" is a really subjective term and is subject to being very open ended
There are hard retro games because the game developers half assed the games, so there are a lot of broken mechanics
There are hard retro games that are perfectly working, but require very specific pixel accuracy to being able to progress (i.e. some platforms look like you can jump on them, but have a "pixel sweetspot" where if you land anywhere else on this platform except for those 10 pixels, you fall through)
Then you have competently made games like Contra and Ninja Gaiden that are hard, but are hard because the game mechanics are well made and thus difficult for all the right reasons

Probably Dark Souls. Shit's so retro.

Well, I found it incredibly fucking annoying. That small red prick.
I just tried to go back and play Mortal Kombat Trillogy for the Playstation...
Even on Very Easy the boss Shao Kahn is fucking impossible.

Isn't battle kid a non-liscensed game?
Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2 are pretty easy, it's just trial and error. The controls are perfect in those games. I can beat them both under 15 minutes after three years of playing them. Haven't had the chance to play the 3rd one though because of how stupid expensive it is.
The hardest one for me is TMNT on NES, because I lack the willpower to beat it. The gameplay is just too awkward.
Also shit like the Miracle Piano, probably the hardest one overall because you actually need to learn piano songs to progress .-.
There are so many retro games that are just way too difficult to justify playing till the end.

Oh man I got to the final boss then the game took a dump on me.
Such a good game.
Let us wallow in the filth of the void clinging to one another.
