Very hard games for PC at Gameseal

Some topics return in the gaming community discussions like boomerangs. One of them is a never-ending dispute about levels of difficulty in games and if it’s ok to play on the easiest settings. It mainly concerns single player, since in online games you can’t really set a difficulty.

There’s nothing wrong with a little challenge. There’s also nothing wrong with a huge challenge. Both are equally ok. Some people just like to game hard, and in this category, we’re here for them with our offer of cheap games for PC.

What games are the hardest on PC?

Game difficulty depends on many factors, and what is easy for one person, can be a challenge for another, so it’s really hard to pick up games that would be objectively the hardest. We did select a few titles though, that in our opinion are challenging enough to be significantly more difficult than others. Check out our small list of the hardest games for PC you can find in every game shop.
  • Dark Souls 1/2/3 - Do you like being punished? Because in this game you will get punished for every single mistake, even if you don’t know it is a mistake. Even though it’s a nightmare to beat this game, it became so popular, that this series began a new era in gaming of games like Dark Souls, which tried to imitate its unique style and gameplay.
  • Cuphead - Oh dear, would you look at this sweet graphic style of cartoons from 1930. This game should be cute and easy, right? Actually no. The cute aspect is here to sweeten your defeat which you will encounter. A lot. You can find ​​Cuphead Xbox and any other platform version here on Gameseal, but are you really ready for this storm in a teacup?
  • Elden Ring - pushes the boundaries of gaming with its unique playstyle and demanding precision. The absence of an error room makes it tough initially, especially for melee enthusiasts facing intense boss battles. Yet, the beauty lies in the learning process as players adapt to this distinctive experience. Whether a seasoned veteran or a newcomer, Elden Ring offers a relentless challenge that fuels the joy of continual improvement and tactical evolution. Every defeat is a lesson, and victory is the sweet fruit of adaptation.

If these titles are still not enough for your challenge-thirsty soul, you can also raise the difficulty of any game by trying to complete it 100% with all its secrets and achievements. You might get surprised by the level of difficulty of some of them, even if the game itself is pretty chill.

Why very hard games are so great?

Some people might think: “Why should I bother with hard games when I can spend time on some easier entertainment like online games? Life is hard and enough of a challenge.” But for others, very hard games are a great way to find fulfillment and brain exercise. There are many reasons why people long for challenging games, let’s try to unfold some.

Every gamer knows a feeling of a thrill, when, after many tries, they defeat that pesky boss (Demon of Hatred from Sekiro - I’m looking at you), beat that level they couldn’t finish in days or solve a difficult puzzle that has been haunting their dream. This sense of accomplishment can be addictive because everyone loves winning. And victory tastes even better when the challenge was exceptionally hard.

The other reason we like hard games so much is that they’re engaging. It’s a no-brainer that sometimes virtual reality is more exciting than real life. When we are bored, we seek stimulation, and hard games are just perfect for that. Some days we just want to chill with Dirt Rally and simply drive around the track, other times an evening with Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin and sweat dripping from our foreheads seems like the best idea for fun.

What is life without a little challenge? Sometimes “a little” is not enough. Another pull-in factor of hard games is a sense of competitiveness. Some achievements in games are so hard and rare, only the most dedicated players are awarded for their completion. This feeling of being one of a few chosen ones is enough to excuse hours and hours spent on a particular game.

Are the best Steam games very hard?

No matter the difficulty, it’s fun that counts. It might be true that the best games on Steam are usually the harder ones, that gather a wider public, but it’s always worth remembering that gaming is about feeling good and having fun! And whatever you would like to play, Gameseal is here for you, to help you get the best game deals.
