Castlevania is one of the biggest 2-D video game franchises of all time. A combination of extremely engaging game play mixed with exotic enemies against a layered background, role-playing elements and some of the most intricate level designs. Yet, the factor that caught my attention and keeps me coming back is that the series has some of the best soundtracks that are right up there with the Final Fantasy and Zelda soundtracks in terms of variety and sound depth. The music became such a major factor that several of the games, including my favorite game Symphony of the Night, are titled like classical concerts. Vampires, werewolves, and mother f***ing medusa heads!
