Top 10 Hardest Single Player Games

While some people like the games that come to the fore with their difficulty, others can leave them unfinished. Especially the difficulty of Souls and derivative games can reach the level that can cause hair loss. In this list, we have brought together the hardest single player games that the players started lovingly but left unfinished because they did not want to destroy their computers due to their difficulties.

The Hardest Single Player Games

Demon’s Souls

Demon’s Souls, by Hidetaka Miyazaki, was originally released for PlayStation 3 in 2009. The game is known as the ancestor of the Souls series, and that is why it is loved so much. In 2020, Remake reappeared with the production and it was very difficult for the players.

Dark Souls series

There is no one who does not know the Dark Souls series. This Souls-like series from FromSoftware takes precedence over other games in its difficulty. It is already one of the series that gave its name to the Souls genre. Dark Souls 2 especially manages to take its place at the top of the list of the hardest single player games.

Nioh series

Combining Souls-like with Hack and Slash genres, Nioh does not neglect to offer players challenging Boss battles. Apart from the classic Souls games, the Bosses here can fight faster and more tactically.

Elden Ring

The popular game of recent times, Elden Ring, is notorious for its difficulty and long gameplay. The production, which will probably deserve many awards, looks like a game that will be left unfinished with cancerous Boss fights!

As it can be understood from its name, ALTF4 is a production that can make you escape from the game by doing Alt+F4. It stands out with its parkour and physics difficulty and it is harder to finish than you think.


There is probably no one left who has not heard its name. Cuphead is one of the hardest single player games with its difficulty. It is unlikely to deceive you with its great music and cartoon-like graphics, but it can also make you drop the difficulty quickly.

The Surge

Combining the souls-like genre with mechanics, The Surge is one of the productions that stands out with its difficulty. It’s the same in The Surge 2, but the difficulty of the first game is still legendary.


Developed by FromSoftware, the architect of Souls games, Bloodborne was a production that managed to enter the PlayStation 4 bestseller list. But since it is also famous for its difficulty, many ‘How to pass?’ videos was shot.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Again FromSoftware, again a very difficult production. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a very difficult game that won the game of the year award at the Game Awards 2019. It is very popular for combining ninjas and the Souls-like genre, but it is also easy to let go.

Super Meat Boy

Having tough platform foundations, Super Meat Boy is a tough competitor with nearly 300 episodes. Even though being reborn instantly after death prevents us from quitting the game, there are parts that cannot be passed as a result of long efforts.
