    A thread to talk about the classic series Castlevania from the original NES games, Symphony of the Night, the Netflix series, to even the DS games like Portrait of RuinPS4Wallpapers.com_659950-1056x594castlevania-portrait-1


      SOTN is my jam <3


        I have so many Castlevania games this forum won’t allow me to show them all in one post, lol.

        Looking at a list I pretty much own every Castlevania game released on Nintendo, MS and Sony consoles and handhelds in some for or another (like Rondo of Blood I only have as unlockable on the PSP game Dracula X Chronicles), including Kid Dracula, excluding Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth and Castlevania: Harmony of Despair.


        Favorite Classic style game: Rondo of Blood

        Favorite Metroidvania style game and favorite one overall: Dawn of Sorrow

        Favorite Metroidvania style game: Tie between SOTN or Portrait of Ruinc370ee0befffd73f01d621e158c6e7c1Castlevania_ Symphony of the Nightcastlevania-portrait-1


        All great picks.  Never got around to playing PoR though!  I have the other two DS games, but not that one.  Need to track down a copy.


        PoR has a very special place in my heart because it got me through a very difficult time in my life


        did you ever play the GBA Castlevania like Aria of Sorrow or Harmony of Dissonance?SI_WiiUVC_CastlevaniaAriaOfSorrow_image1600wSI_WiiUVC_CastlevaniaHarmonyOfDissonance_image1600w


        Unfortunately no!  Dawn of Sorrow on the DS was actually my very first Castlevania game, so I’ve been playing catch up ever since haha.  I should download the GBA trilogy on my Wii U.


          I have so many Castlevania games physically and digitally

          CastlevaniaCastlevania The Dracula X ChroniclesCastlevania Lords of Shadow 1Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2CastlevaniaCastlevania JudgmentCastlevania 1Castlevania 2 Legacy of DarknessCastlevania 1 Dawn of SorrowCastlevania 2 Portrait of RuinCastlevania 3 Order of EcclesiaCastlevania Circle of the MoonCastlevania Double PackCastlevania I The AdventureCastlevania II Belmont's RevengeCastlevania Legends

          Digitally I have the Castlevania Anniversary Collection on Switch of course, Castlevania Chronicles as PS1 Classic on PS3, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD on PS3 and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on Xbox 360.




          My favorites are Super Castlevania IV, Rondo of Blood, and Symphony of the Night.

          By the way, I find Lords of Shadow games very underrated.


            Symphony of the Night is one of my favorite games ever. Lords of Shadow was an interesting trilogy. The last one was odd, though.

            Bloodstained, the spiritual successor, is pretty fantastic too. I made some trophy guides for a few of these over on, for Bloodstained and Castlevania Anniversary Collection. Don’t tell I sent you though, I hate those people right now lol.


            I’m an old timer so my favorite will always be the first game. Being an Indiana Jones fan I was immediately drawn to the game because it was one of the few games on the market at the time that the hero actually used a bullwhip as his main weapon. Hell, I think it was the ONLY game out that had the character using a whip. Of course there’s the old Atari Raiders game but I prefer not to think about that. LOL

            Anyway, I played the shit out of Castlevania. I loved Simon’s Quest and Dracula’s Curse too. Symphony was also a lot of fun and I loved the RPG elements of that game. I played a few of the portable ones but just couldn’t get into them. Super Castlevania was “Ok”……best part of that game was the ability to use your whip to swing. LOL

            After those games I’ve lost track and never really got into the new stuff. I’d love for them to reboot the series and maybe turn it into an open world type of game and explore a big map. Think Grand Theft Auto or Red Dead Undead Nightmare. I think that would be really fun. :)
