    Worse.

    Worst is used when describing something as the 'worst'. As in, "This is the worst day of my life."

    Or if he had said: "I've lived through worse or the worst." That's also correct, I suppose.

    That works but it's part of a conversation and not a proper sentence as there is no indication of what the 'worst' is.

    Correct.

    Using your example it would go something like this -

    person one - "how has your life been?"
    person two - "I've lived through the worse of the worst."
    conversation continues...

    As you see it gives it context where if you just say it there is none. The rest of the conversation would be person two indicating what the 'worst' has been.

    As a statement it implies something but what is the 'worst' for one person is not necessarily the same for another. To me the 'worse of the worst' would indicate extremely bad but maybe that's my dark side.

    In spoken English a lot of short cuts get taken when we talk. We don't use proper grammar a lot. We shorten sentences, words and even create new meanings for words and even new words to convey things.

    However, when it comes to writing, grammar plays a more important part. You can easily lose your meaning when writing something incorrectly.
