So uh... Hi. :D
I've never played Castlevania before. My friend in real life is a fan of them and has always recommended them to me, but I've always been too stuck up Link and Samus' asses to give it a try (plus, I've never thought to buy them). However, lately, I've been itching for more 2D side-scroller games to play, so Castlevania seems like the perfect thing to dive into. I currently have Order of Ecclesia loaded on my DS and I've only played it for about 5 minutes now, but I'm enjoying it so far. I like how it plays, so I want to get into the series in the right manner.
What games would you guys recommend me starting with? I can only play NES, SNES, GB, GBC, GBA, NDS, N64, and any games on the Wii virtual console (I doubt I could run Playstation games, but I can try...), so... please limit choices to those. ;d
Also, if there are any JP exclusives, I can play those as well.
