    Default What is the most difficult pc game you ever played?

    I finally started playing Scourge of War: Gettysburg and seems to be really challenging. The interface is difficult to understand and even winning a battle in the second tutorial is challenging.

    What about you? What is the most difficult pc game you ever played?

    command modern air and naval operations or DCS with it's 1800 page manual for just one plane.
    Scourge of war is not difficult as a game, it's interface is just really poorly designed.

    Sail your ship as part of a fleet. Devs previously worked on: Darthmod, World of Warplanes, World of Tanks, RaceRoom, IL2-Sturmovik, Metro, STALKER and many other great games..

    Neverwinter Nights 1 when it comes to pvp stuff, or building a character strong enough to go through dungeons designed for very powerfull characters. These dungeons are made by players after all.

    It's pretty much rocket science to build something effective in this game. Even if you think your character is strong, you might not even be able to hit someone else, and if they are a mage they might have ways to disable you before it even starts. And on the other side if you play a mage there's around 120 spells for each spell caster class that goes to level 9 spells. Finding out what to use and how to use the combinations the best can be pretty tricky too.
    And of course there's multiclassing. 40 levels in total, but you can be up to three classes. Which tend to have prerequests. There's 23 classes. And each class can be used in many different ways.
    Aside from that many weapons are straight up useless because there are clearly superiour alternatives, and the order of which you take the levels of each class also matters, and which feats and ability score improvements you take at what levels.

    That game is torture. I don't know any person who endured it.

    Europa Universalis 4. It took me over a week to figure out how to play, and even when you know all the tricks it only takes one mistake or missed opportunity to lose the game if you are playing as a minor nation.
