I still rock the old school 8-bit track of it! I've always loved that game and the soundtrack.You guessed it. The mix on my playlist has a bit of an...ahem...harder edge...but there are tons of mixes out there. I might end up replacing this one with a more "Gothic" sounding mix.
When that game came out, i was still too little (3 years old), but my Dad would play it on the NES and I would watch him play it, like watching a movie. Eventually I got big enough / good enough to play it myself, and I've always been hooked on Castlevania ever since. Castlevania is really the perfect Halloween video game if you think about it, there are always things like ghouls, werewolves, vampires, etc!!
