    Currently Super Castlevania 4 takes the cake for me.
    Its hard as hell yet so fun that you can't stop playing it.

    After I finish Castlevania 4.... I want to find another fun 2D Side Scrolling game.
    So, I thought why not ask the guys at TFW?
    So tell me what is your favorite side scrolling game, old or new?

    There isn't a favorite one for me, but I do like the following:

    Mega man (nes and SNES ones)
    Contra (the side scrolling ones only)
    Rushin attack (such an underrated game)
    Terminator (sega cd)
    Super mario bros (all the side scrolling ones)
    Castlevania (NES, SNES, Genesis, PS1, and DS)
    Metroid (again all the side scrolling ones)
    Metal slug
    Gunstar heros (includes super heros)
    Street fighter 2 (and all incarnations of it)
