  1. 9:09 Bodies on Bodies by Vio-Lence. From my favorite thrash album of all time. I have been enjoying the channel for a bit before this, but that moment just earned my sub. Hell yeah

  2. I'm kind of late to the party, but eeh.

    1) Castlevania: Bloodlines
    2) Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    3) Castlevania: Lament of Innocence
    4) Akumajou Densetsu
    5) Castlevania: Rondo of Blood

  3. My top 5 Castlevania games?

    1. Castlevania: Bloodlines (Genesis)
    2. Super Castlevania IV (SNES)
    3. Castlevania (NES)
    4. Castlevania: Chronicles (PS1)
    5. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS1)

    Did I have to include Castlevania in every title for my list? Yes. Yes I did.

    I can't help but gush over the music in Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, though! Superb!

  4. Never played the PlayStation one. I was surprised at number 1. I was expecting Rondo of Blood, which I also have not played. CV3 is a worthy winner.

  5. I first started playing Castlevania in 1995-1996 with Castlevania Bloodlines on the sega channel adapter. I need to complete it. Then I played the nes versions in highschool 2001. Friend showed symphony of the night when I spent at the night at his house. Then on to the GBA versions like Aria of sorrow. I could have sworn I played circle of the moon, but I don't remember it after watching gameplay. Skipped the N64 versions because it did not appeal to me. Glad I did after seeing the author's review of Castlevania 64. Father took me to best-buy in October 2003 and bought Lament of Innocence for me. Loved it and hard as balls with the second side story of Joachim. I never finished Joachim since I had difficulty with him. I did not know of the second hidden character of Pumpkin until now. I waited for the next game, Curse of Darkness. I saw the review in PSM magazine and skipped it. Same friend said the game was OK. I just bought it two days ago, over 10 years later. I had purchased other castlevania for the nintendo ds (Dawn of sorrow and Portrait of ruin). I still haven't played them. I am still waiting a sequel to Lament of Innocence that includes Mathias.

    Top 5 (no order).
    Castlevania 1
    Castlevania 3
    Castlevania 2: simon''s quest (YES I SAID NUMBER 2. Ducks into cover. Though it was hard and you had difficulty where to go. I liked the story and music.
    Castlevania: Lament of innocence.
    Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. (Did not finish but love the idea of hidden characters that were included)

    These may change until I play the others.

  6. Great video. Having played through most of them except the GBA and DS metroidvania style entries, Castlevania 3 and maybe the second one on N64, Super Castlevania 4 is probably my favorite standard style game in the series. SOTN is up there too but is a very different type of game, like the other metroidvanias. SC4 is definately easier than most of them but I really enjoyed the atmosphere and music, level design. I just did a complete run of SOTN and it was great to finally be able to fully appreciate the game. Back in the olden days I just took the shortcut and ended the game early, wrote it down, of course missing the upside down castle and maybe most of the first castle. I think there was a way to fight dracula very early. I was more about the end result back then, ha ha. SC4 I am just finishing up a run to edit together as a tutorial on the game. It was nice to revisit that game again. Have to get back to the Castlevania 3 and finish that one as well.

  7. Super Castlevania IV is def at the top of the list for me. I couldn't believe the music was coming out of the videogame console at the time. I'm in the minority where I wasn't that crazy about SOTN.

  8. Myranking of the ones I have played
    1. Symphiny of the Night
    2.Castlevania Rondo of Blood / Dracula X
    3. Castlevania 3
    4. Castlevania Bloodlines / Castlevania 1
    5. Castlevania 4
    6. Castlevania 2: Simons Quest

  9. My top 5

    1 – symphony of night
    2 – dawn of sorow
    3 – aria of sorrow
    4 – circle of moon
    5 – portrait of ruin

    Just started order of e.

  10. My top 5 list for me is (1)Castlevania 4 (2)Castlevania SOTN (3) Castlevania (4) Castlevania legacy of darkness (5) Castlevania 2 Belmont’s revenge. Remember this is my list not asking anyone to agree with it only to respect it.

  11. The only ones I still play:
    1. Symphony of the Night
    2. Bloodlines
    3. Rondo of Blood
    4. SC IV
    5. Legacy of Darkness

    I find III too difficult to enjoy and the original too bland compared to the 5 on my list.

  12. 5. Castlevania, 4. Super Castlevania IV, 3. Symphony of the night,2. Lords of shadow, 1. Castlevania 3 Draculas curse.

  13. I only have a top 3 cause thats all I've played so far. #3: Super Castlevania 4. #2: Castlevania Bloodlines. #1: Castlevania Symphony of the Night. All 3 are around the top of my all time fav games period

  14. 1. Castlevania 64(cause shut up) 😂
    2. Castlevania rondo of blood
    3. Castlevania SOTN
    4. Castlevania order of Ecclesia
    5. Castlevania 3 Dracula’s curse.

  15. 2. It and Legend of Zelda were the premiere controller swapping games on the NES for my friends and I. I love Dawn of Sorrow as well. Bloodlines should be here as well.

  16. Wes My top 5 are
    5 legacy of Darkness N64
    4 Bloodlines Genesis
    3 Chronicles PS1
    2 Rondo of Blood TG16
    1 Super Castlevania IV SNES

  17. that's 5 i would have picked, although i never really played part 4 to compare i to, i would say rondo of blood/castlevania x

  18. Good list, man. I've been playing Castlevania since 1989 and it's one of my favorite series. I'm not that fond of Castlevania IV since I beat it first try. Way too freakin' easy. I'd rank my top 5 as follows:
    5- Castlevania 3
    4-Rondo of Blood
    3-Castlevania Legacy of Darkness (incredibly underrated game!)
    2-Aria of Sorrow
