Zelda: Nightmare mode

Zelda 2 Adventure of link captured many peak frustration moments from my childhood. Still, in it I can kind of see a kindred spirit to dark souls. That makes sense since the game was meant to evoke some of the feeling of Castlevania. Even going back years later, I find myself needing to check walkthroughs (I believe the original game came with a map and legend!). It's merciless. I always make sure I have Shield, Jump, and Life as early as possible, otherwise the palaces can be borderline impossible. The real key isn't items or upgrades, though. It's patience.
