That is some ugly past.Smiley LOL  I think PONG is largely responsible for School Violence in the 1970's.

I blame all violence that happens TODAY within 15 miles of any place of education on that gaming system from the 70's!

 

For those who don't notice what we are doing, well, sarcasm!

DId you happen to see the Penn & Teller video ID posted?  Very good.  Had to take it down for language, but it is very poignant.

 

Whoops, sorry.  Not hijacking here, I swear.  Last comment unrelated to OP, promise.

Well, I love the Castlevania series (even Simon's Quest; anything before Lords of Shadow), I remember how frustrating Pong was on the Atari (was that game programed to make it impossible to win? Smiley Indifferent), aaaaaand I used to love Asteroids and Centipede. I guess I'm old.

 

Forum-wise, I joined in '09 (when I first got my PSP and started back using Playstation platforms as my main gaming devices).

My favorites Castlevania games were II, Simon's Quest, and of course the BEST, Symphony of the Night.

 

Of course, after playing them, I had a yearning to get a whip and go out vanquishing Vampires.  At least those I suspected of being Vampires.  Not the shiny ones either.Smiley LOL

My favorite is out of Dracula's Curse and Rondo of Blood. Rondo was a beautiful game all around. It still had that Classic Castlevania difficulty, but it also gave the player more abilities so you wouldn't feel overwhelmed (Item Crashes, jumping on stairs, etc.). Dracula's Curse was awesome because of the many paths you could take and the ally combinations you could come up with.

 

No disrespect to SotN or Super Castlevania IV though. I just wish SotN had more levels. After you got all of Alucard's gear, you were basically god-like lol. Richter was already god-like at the start.

Very true about all.  As far as the franchise after SotN, I barely played any after that.  The over demure characters got a little too anime for me.  

 

As well, I did not enjoy the N64 bastardization and attempt at 3Dimensional game play.  I played half way through Lament of Innocence, but it just did not pop for me.  Guess I grew out of the title, much like other games in my "tapping out" thread.

 

Still a classic franchise though.
