Favorite Video Games of My Childhood: IX
Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
I liked this game much more than the original Castlevania. That game drove me nuts, making me start over from the beginning every time. It still ticks me off. This game had a much better story in that it was closer to the Dracula myth, and it rewarded players with codes that didn't force them to start over from the beginning every time! Man that still ticks me off. The only knock on this game is that Dracula was too easy to defeat. I remember just crushing him. I don't think he got near me. In other words, I seriously pwned Dracula.
Other than that, I found this game very satisfying.
