Most gamers tend to have some serious backlogs of games they haven't gotten to yet, and some of the games within can be quite embarrassing to admit to. In the first of many for me, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of those games.
To be honest, I never really wanted to play it. I always found the original Castlevania for NES fun, but generally speaking, the Metroid-vania genre has never appealed to me. I consider that a decent enough excuse to have skipped out on the PS1 classic, but times and interests change, so here I am today firing the game up for the first time.
