People have no fucking heart, no diversity. Take your heads out of your asses and stop trying contradict new ideas. This is why I can't stand most video game fans. They're like the fat family cat that nobody cares about. They're too afraid of change. I'm takin' my ass back to Screened!
Just because I know there are gonna be a good number of people saying this one, I won't mention Symphony of the Night (though that is my true favorite), and instead go to my next favorite, Order of Ecclesia. I feel that it is the only entry in the series since SotN that has actually managed to be as good as that masterpiece was. Through incredibly memorable music, intricate level design, punishingly difficult bosses, and beautiful but strong female protagonist, OoE manages to stand out as a triumph amongst the other two still-good DS Castlevania games. That's my opinion, at least.
