No. But i do find it odd to call a game metroidvania style, when it's not a castlevania game. If it's that style, it'd be metroid like, wouldn't it?

Exactly, at these times I find it to be retarded. This only shows sometimes how much these so called reviewers or people from news are newbies about these kinds. I dont have seem people calling a game "metroid-like" or something like that in years, they call it Metroidvania lol

Hell yeah, I find it EXTREMELY annoying (and here I would use the word of the OP) when they call MetroidVania something like Guacamelee.
I'd like to say to that stupid critics: where the hell is the Vania part!!??!!
It's sacrilege to use a sacred word as Vania in a... thing?... I don't know what it is... like Guacamelee.
Now I'm tired, eternally walking... forever dying, and never stopping. I feel in sorrow, all I see is white. I’m following a blind way beneath a sad sky.

Could just make the distinction between both types by calling the old linear games the "Classic" ones, and the exploration-type the "IGA" games. I dunno.

The terms do sound kind of dumb, I guess, but not as bad as Castleroid. Ugh. Castleroid sounds like what Dracula gets when he strains too hard on the toilet.
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

The problem is Simon's Quest and Vampire Killer are exploration games, and those are not Iga games.

But they're not largely considered Metroidvanias, either.

No, MetroidVania and ClassicVania will stay because the forest fairy council has dictated so, and it must be with capital V all the time.
Infractors will be punished with a night stay at the bondage cabin the the fairies woods with Pamila supervising and the slave from chapter one ready for punishment action (it's an in joke, don't worry if you don't understand it  :P).

Good, 'cos I certainly don't. :O

And the Castlevania Chronicles logo says your capital V can eat a dick.



Heck, might as well start typing it CasTlevania after the GBA games. :p

No, Castlevania doesn't include a capital V.
Only MetroidVania and ClassicVania.
Those who write Castlevania in a wrong way will also be punished.

The Punisher is a good movie  :P

By the way, it was a Bondage Fairies joke  ;D
