5. The Demise Of "Skyward Sword's" Diffculty

Gamer: sirhu923
Game: Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was the Wii's swan song, the last major release on Nintendo's popular console. Skyward Sword was innovative. The developers had such ambition (and perhaps business sense) to require players to buy an additional peripheral, the Wii Motion Plus, in order to make the motion control more accurate. It was an interesting idea and it was mainly successfu, but it led to sometimes irresponsive motion controls that could leave you high and dry mid-swordfight.

We'd tell that to sirhu923, but we don't think he wants to hear it. He's perfected the Wii Motion Plus like a modern day virtual Lancelot. The game's final boss, Demise, is the Zelda equivalent to Satan. So the game's conclusion pits an elf against a twelve foot tall demon king. Hardly a fair fight.

In this feat, Demise waits a millenia for a chance to impose evil over the entire world only to get his shit absolutely wrecked without dealing out so much as a virtual bruise. If you look up "badass" in the dictionary, no doubt you'd see "sirhu923," sitting on his ass simultaneously battling an ancient evil as well as cystic acne.
