Okay, so I plan on going ahead and playing all of the Castlevania games. My main reason is that I'm not a fan of vampires, and many have told me that this will indeed make me a fan, and if this won't, nothing will.

However, if I'm going ot play this whole series I'm going to do this right, but my main problem is chronology, which seems to screwed up, I've checked Wikipedia which seems so random, and I've checked the English site, which neglects many of them.

I'm trying to sure the most recent remakes possible, and I don't have access to a PlayStation1/2/Xbox so for now that's out (My PC is too crap to emulate it probably too...)

Well this is my current list, but I'm sure it's off (I gathered it from wikipedia, and a few other sources)

Castlevania (NES Remake) - Game Boy Advance
Castlevania II: Simon's Quest - NES
Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse - NES
Castlevania: The Adventure - Game Boy Color
Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge - Game Boy Color
Super Castlevania IV - SNES
Castlevania Bloodlines - Genesis
Castlevania: Dracula X - SNES
Castlevania Legends - Game Boy
Castlevania: Circle of The Moon - Game Boy Advance
Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance - Game Boy Advance
Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow - Game Boy Advance
Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow - Nintendo DS
Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin - Nintendo DS
Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia - Nintendo DS (Soon to come)


My main concern is that this seems to be more or less the release list, is this also the actual way they should be played? Is there a best order, is it the order of availability or not?

I do have an N64, but I have a feeling that finding the games somewhere will be a mission from hell.

You forgot the prequel to Order of Ecclesia, Order of Shadows:

Not great though.

Also Akumaj? Dracula X Chi no Rondo aka Rondo of Blood which took place in 1792. It was on PC Engine and one of the best Castlevanias there is. Only in Japanese but there are fan translations.

The game was remade on Super Nintendo as Dracula X, it had the same story but different levels and wasn't anywhere near as good. The game was also on PSP as part as The Dracula X Chronicles.

Thank you VERY much to both of you, that's exactly what I was looking for Ryu, but it seems that it wasn't on the net (Although Wikipedia makes 'reference' to it)

Time to re-order them and put a list up somewhere on my DS in a text file :3
