I recently bought the Castlevania Double Pack for GBA, and I'm going to be giving a presentation about Symphony of the Night for my Intro to Interactive Design and Game Development class. So now I have Castlevania on the brain. I'm approximately halfway through Harmony of Dissonance, and it's been fun so far. Everything about it feels like what playing Symphony as Richter should have been. As in everything cool that Alucard could do: use magic, collect items and relics, gain experience, etc. And that's probably all of the appeal of Harmony. Symphony was my first Castlevania game, and I still love it to this day. Everything about it made it great: graphics, monsters, items, spells, relics, and the soundtrack. In fact, to date, this is the only game I've actively sought out the soundtrack to purchase. Best $16 I've ever spent. I'm really looking forward to playing Aria of Sorrow, but it has to wait until I finish Harmony. I think it would feel strange playing through two similar, but different games at the same time. But when I finally get to play it, Aria of Sorrow will be the fourth Castlevania game I've played. The other three being Symphony, the original, and Harmony. If the demo of Lament of Innocence counts, then I've played five. And I find that sad, considering I'm a fan of the series. That's why I really wish Konami would release a Castlevania collection, especially since 2006 is the 20th Anniversary (of Vampire Killer). They've made 23 games, and I doubt I'm the only person that wants them all in one collection. Of course, five of them (Harmony, Aria, Dawn of Sorrow, Lament of Innocence, and Curse of Darkness) are a little too recent to be included, but still. I'd love to get the other 18 games. Hell, I've wanted to play Super Castlevania IV since I first saw the two-part strategy in Game Players back in 1991. So, I'm hoping I'm not the only Castlevania fan here.
