LOL, yep, it was coming. For me, pretty much almost all the CV titles were likable from the get-go. CV 64 took some getting into due to it's fully rendered 3D theme rather then the traditional 2D I grew up with.

The quadrilogy is done, the prophecy has been fulfilled  :P

About the thread:
Almost every Castlevania official and un-official game, and any CV stuff, for that matter.

Castlevania Aria of Sorrow. I have played that game so much that I'm now tired of it and will probably not play it for years 'til the day I reflect back to my past and pick it up again. But that game will always be regarded as one of my favorite game in the series and no Castlevania has ever made me love 2D so much as AoS.

I understand that.

Portrait of Ruin is one of the games I've played most in the CV series. More than 70 hours with Charlotte only. Then the rest of characters, all of them at max stats, 1000%, and always 100% of everything in the game if possible.
SotN is 2nd close. And I played it again every time it was re-released, and in every version and with every character.

But I'm willing to pick up PoR again as soon as I buy a 3DS XL, to experience it in a new and bigger screen.

It's hard to stand the test of time, but some really do.

I can say with confidence that Dracula X SNES, Castlevania III, and Castlevania IV are still a delight to play. I will add that while I liked Castlevania 64 when it came out, my respect for it has multiplied in the last handful of years. It really is a good base template for Castlevania in 3D.

Dracula's Curse. It was one of the best games I'd ever played back in 1991 and it still makes me extremely nostalgic whenever I play it now. Playing the Famicom version a few years back was a new experience and was like playing for the first time again - when I play that, the enjoyment I get from it isn't even something old enough to call "nostalgia" since it's still relatively new to me, and it rivals Super Metroid as my favorite game of all time.

Bloodlines. To me, some subtle element of the artwork, the style of the music, and the "feel" of the game harkens back to the first Castlevania, making this one quite possibly my favorite ClassicVania to date. It's still a joy to play and it still rubs me the wrong way (like it did in 1994) when people compare it to Castlevania 4 and dub it "sub-par" by comparison.

Belmont's Revenge. It's everything that Adventure should have been and wanted to be and is as good a ClassicVania as any.

Simon's Quest. I played the first game first and played 3 extensively before I'd played much of SQ, but something about SQ's "feel" defines Castlevania beautifully for me. I have a lot of nostalgia for grinding for hearts in a few specific spots, finding the Fire Whip for the first time, "cheating" and playing the later half of the game first (with everything taking 16 or 32 hits), and how desolate and empty I felt going through that gray, empty town knowing that it was the last in the game. Entering Castlevania and hearing the music start up with the visuals still hasn't lost its magic for me. It's a beautiful game.

Dawn of Sorrow. There were a lot of "THIS is Castlevania" moments the first time I played it: walking around in the Alchemy Lab with "Dracula's Tears" playing in all its jazzy glory; the vast Chapel with its Castlevania 3-esque stained glass windows and Castlevania 4-throwback dancers; the Ruins, complete with "Vampire Killer" and phantom bat; the Condemned Tower; even the Abyss screamed "this is how Castlevania is supposed to feel" with its terror-inducing lava background and almost incomprehensible music. I had doubts here and there with the anime-styled character portraits, silly plot, questionable boss battles, and a few "not very Castlevania" songs, but every time I've put it down for months and come back to it, it's always brought me the same joy as that first playthrough. It's probably my favorite MetroidVania, though I realize SotN does it better.

Geez louise, 4 topics almost exactly alike, was it really?

And no you didn't have to. If anything this could go into Classic CV discussion if anything.
