There are tons and tons of games that I had to give up at some point, mostly because they got very hard, or because of some point where I was not able to get past.
But in most of them I had to give up already nearly the end.

However, there are also some where I already gave up in the middle or after a few levels. The main problem for me is that most of these games take a lot of time until I get back to the point where I gave up, so I am not enough motivated to try again.

Examples for these are:

Battle Sqadron
James Pond II
Shadow of the Beast
Driving Force on high difficulty level (15 courses to beat)
Lotus III on high difficulty (also 15 courses, I think)
Chuck Rock
Saint Dragon
Arabian Nights
BC Kid
Fire and Ice
Kid Chaos
Tiger Road
Black Tiger

On these, there was a certain point which I never made it past:

Castlevania (that level wher you have to cross the water)
R-Type II (2nd or maybe 3rd level was too hard)
Project X (if you loose one life, you can turn off the Amiga because you loose lots of extra powers, which makes continuing completely senseless)
The Plague (cannot remember, but got impossible somewhere in level 3, I think)
Joe & Mac (there was one stage where hundreds of fishes jump out of the water and always kill me)
Titus the Fox: I think in level 9 or something I was not able to find the level code, and I did not want to replay the level before all the time)
Disposable Hero (got too hard in level 3 or so)

Then there are the ones where I gave up at the end of game fight, or shortly before the end:

Targhan (did not have enough energy left in last savegame to be able to beat the end of game enemy)
Chase HQ II (never made the last time limit in level 5 before the bomb explodes)
Sword of Sodan (never was able to kill the wizard at the end)
Terminator II Arcade (could not kill the T-1000 in front of the truck)
Push Over (could not complete level 98)
Elvira Arcade Fire level (I picked up everything and klled everything, but level did not end ?!?)
Nicky Boom II (last level is a bitch)
Lost Vikings (somehow I was not able to complete the last level 37)
Wonderdog (could not kill the end of game enemy)
Motörhead (always die in last level )
Double Dragon II (the end boss with the gun kills me)
Nucleus (l cannot manage to complete the last level ?)
Rise of the Robots (last robot before the supervisor is too hard for me on hardest level)
