      This. It's a bummer that Castlevania 3 is so goddamn difficult since it's otherwise such an awesome game. After the beginning every fricking screen is like the last screen in Castlevania. But yeah, the first one is a piece of cake.

    This is where I usually get filtered.

    I feel like everybody who say this game is le good game design are just memeing. They've could work on the game more instead of forcing player to master clunky controls. Even Ninja Gaiden gives you full control of your abilities before releasing all the bullshit at you.

      I don't find the controls clunky at all just very deliberate. I find the game very fun and well designed. Every screen has intricate design even for characters just spawning with no powerups yet I'd say its fun even if its frustrating, the infinite continues alleviate pretty much all frustrations though

        Wait, they are?
        I think there were only two or four when I've played the game as a kid. Hence why I've never beat it. I've only made few serious attempts recently but got frustrated on this stage and didn't want to continue,should try some more.

    They're not that bad, except for the Quetzalcoatl part that part is fricking moronic if you died or didn't keep Holy Water.

      Anyway the hardest part by far is Stage 15, especially since if you die I'm pretty sure there's no Holy Water in the whole block and it makes the hallway of death and Death himself much easier if you manage to keep it the whole time

        Honestly it's more fun to fight Death with triple crosses, weaving between everything like a badass while the crosses hit Death and take out multiple scythes.

          On the bright side it turns out there is Holy Water. At the beginning of the level. So if you game over on purpose and go through the stage without dying it's probably easier. Or if you wanna be a real gamer you could just hope to get multipliers for the cross (pretty sure it's a higher chance if you hit the candles with it) and fight Death pretty much the intended way.

    The movement Castlevania should be the easiest: no matter, your jump is always the same length, and it's precisely 2 blocks long, in a game where the level design is blocky and thus the blocks can be used as a visual cue. The weapons also always travel the same distances and have the same directions

    There are no variables, it's the most simple thing. And yet it still filters people who complain about "controls" (it has nothing to do with the controls). I don't know how that is possible.

    It shouldn't take more than jumping half a dozen times to master all there is to master about the jumping in this game. Thus, I believe Castlevania to be a revealer. A revealer of one's unability to learn and adapt to simple things, and a revealer of how little intellect and learning modern gaming requires.

      I don't know how intellectual this is... it's not like we're playing sudoku or Civilization or something. It's still a real-time action game in which you control only one character and fight only one or two enemies at a time. I think the problem might lie in people's ability to maintain a strong, live connection to a certain type of geometric intuition, not in their general intellect. If the game were turn-based like Toribash or something it might suddenly become easier for some of these people.

      That's all speculation though, since I have the same feeling you do: It's a simple game that poses simple problems, and you shouldn't have any trouble in most sections of it unless you rush in impatiently or fail to do the small amount of memorization it calls for. Hunchbacks, ravens, Death, the giant bats just beyond Death should maybe cause some trouble with their wild movements, but... none of that is in the underground section OP's image depicts. So like, yeah, just whip that bat, or jump over it. Jump over the pit. Get shoved off by the stalactites and instantly memorize that you need to duck on the moving platform. Go upstairs and fight the birds and okay occasionally get tagged by a fleaman, oh well, it's obvious you need to defeat every enemy ASAP in that section so just memorize that trivial fact and then do it. And there's meat up ahead anyway. The only part that isn't always simple and straightforward is the boss, which is appropriate because it's a boss.

        I guess my point isn't very clear. No, it's not very intellectual. Yet it's still too much for the modern player.

              The difference between me and the anon that posted that clip is I have no desire to replicate to "authentic" CRT experience. CRTs are by and large crap and I spent the ENTIRE GENERATION moving from tube to tube CONSTANTLY looking for upgrades and improvements, ever-flatter screens, ever more precise color, ever sharper pictures, *because they were never good enough*. When I emulate games now I like to include some of the aspects that are reminiscent of my youth like a bit of halation/glow, but "iT HaS tO bE ExAcTlY rIgHt" is moronic.

    There is something else that is a revealer about Castlevania: the holy water exploit (against Death specifically but not only).

    Back in the day most players wouldn't have known of the exploit, or they would only have found out after a long time of playing, because at first glance the holy water looks like the worst fricking weapon you want to avoid at all cost. Maybe they'd also eventually have found out through magazines or word of mouth, but they wouldn't have known without playing.

    These days everyone will know before he even starts playing. Yet, most people don't even read the manual anymore so they're unaware of some of game's BASIC mechanics like the fact that hitting certain candles with a subweapon drops item II and III. They don't know basic mechanics, but they know all the cheats and exploits, the player knowledge when starting a game is completly reversed.
