So aside from Castlevania

What other videogame series and franchises have your attention?

Resident Evil is my second favorite big name series. Metal Gear and Silent Hill are close behind, followed by Metroid, Tales (I haven't played every single game but I definitely enjoy them more than Final Fantasy), Ninja Gaiden, Far Cry, and most recently Ys. I'll always have a soft for Command & Conquer and the Ages RTS games too.

Too many games to name off the top of my head. I did try one of the games from the Tales series (Tales of Berseria). It was the only one I played and finished cause it interested me enough to try. However more then halfway through I started feeling bored with it and that was due to the combat system. I feel the game would benefit more from real time combat (Ys style) rather then wandering around till you impacted with a monster, entered the combat mode and fought. Traditional RPG game combat just doesn't really work for full-on 3D games it just slows everything down, and not in a good way. I also felt that this was a problem with the Valkyrie Profile games (the first 2, and more specifically, the second game as it is 3D). The more recent Dragon Quest games also do this as well, however with those titles it doesn't seem as bad as the aforementioned.

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 was really good after getting used to its own quirk. Inti Creates on its own CAN make decent 2D game which almost rivals the stuff of Mega Man X4. The Luminous Avenger iX2 spinoff also looks promising, but price tag is a bit too high, I guess I'll skip its initial launch and purchase if it got a discount someday.
Also I wish Inti Creates to collab with IGA once more. Some goodies were unfortunately been neutralized by the 8-bit-like overall style in Curse of the Moon series.

And thanks to Touhou Luna Nights I had a huge truck of marathon reseach of Touhou Project and its offsprings. I was shocked that a next finalized game with Touhou + Metroidvania hybrid playstyle is still yet to surface.

Top franchises for me (not in order):

- Castlevania
- Zelda
- Final Fantasy
- Metroid

There’s no clear 5th, because there’s too many random awesome games, some of which are one hit wonders..

A lot. If I had to cut it down to a top 5, it would probably be the Souls series, Streets of Rage, Doom, Resident Evil, and Nioh.

Other than that, I've always been a big fan of Ninja Gaiden (both old and new), Contra, Double Dragon, Legend of Zelda, Metroid (only the 2D ones, though), Wolfenstein, and Mega Man X.
It's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, but instead it's Who Wants Fried Chicken? I do.

We could have the same list if you swap Streets of Rage for Half-Life.

The only games I've actually joined communities for have been CV, Metroid, and Mega Man.
