The Evolution of Ghosts 'n Goblins (1985-2021)
Players take charge of Arthur in his quest to save the princess, who has been kidnapped and taken away to the Demon Realm. Thanks to its brutal difficulty, beating this game back in the day bestowed instant status to those few who proved themselves worthy. One of the original "hardcore" games, this title helped pave the way for an entire genre.
