Hey there. I've been getting into the Ys series and Falcom in general and I'm taken aback at how fucking good their games are and why it took me so long to find out.
Other than my mild tidbit there, I guess you could call me a retro gamer of sorts, as I usually play games or franchises as old as myself, or perhaps older. I've been a long time Castlevania fan and it amazes me to see that Ys has better songs than most of the titles from that franchise. The fan in me sheds a tear, as my eyes cry of joyus wonderment from Falcom.
I love Castlevania too, but I'm really bad at the older ones. I try them, but I never get very far. Any recommendations on which one is best for practicing on...?
Super Castlevania IV is the easiest Castlevania the Adventure Rebirth has good difficulty options that allow you to slowly ramp up the challenge as you get better (and tons of hidden paths so it's fun for several playthroughs) Castlevania Chronicles on remix mode is moderately difficult. But the original X68k version is on par with the original game (slightly easier though) Dracula X Chronicles for PSP is easier than the TCD version IMO. But TCD Rondo of Blood (also available for Wii Virtual Console!.. or as an unlock for the PSP version) with Maria is pretty easy due to how lenient the controls are. She doesn't take many hits though
CV 1 & 3 are just classic hard
