UCB Presents: CONTROLLER FREAKS Tries Not to Rage Quit

You know you’re in for something intense when a video starts off with the words “Silver Surfer for the NES.” That notoriously hard (and hard to enjoy) comics cash-in from LJN kicks off Controller Freaks‘ look back at some of the most rage-inducing titles of gaming’s past.

We’re not just talking bad games here – that first Ninja Gaiden is legitimately one of the greatest action games ever made. It’ll also make a nun want to punch a puppy, it’s so tough.

The gang, including comedy writers Eva Anderson and Nick Wigner, actor Echo Kallum, and game designer Whitney Hills – look at that fine line between love and “I hate you so much you stupid skeletons, why won’t you just die already” among some classics and modern hits that are both challenging fun and masochistically bad.
