The Evolution of Castlevania

Published by at 11:00 am under Video Games,Videos

I wrote in my article on shooters (as compared to action games) that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was one of the upcoming games that I’m really looking forward to.  The Castlevania franchise has been around as long as I’ve been playing video games and although it’s had its ups and downs, it is one of the stronger, more prominent franchises of all time.  I think part of the reason for its success – as well as the success of any video game franchise – has been its ability to evolve.  From an 8-bit linear action game to an action adventure with role playing elements, Castlevania has evolved quite a bit over the years.  Below, you can check out each step of the Castlevania evolution.  (There are a LOT)
