Rate the Game: Week 35

So Castlevania got some decent love last week but it's time to see how it rated overall. I didn't officially vote in the poll but I took my rating of 4 into account when I did the average. So with that in mind, Castlevania earns an average rating of 3.8 which puts it together with some interesting company on the leaderboard. Let's take a look:

1. Super Mario Bros. 3 (4.7)
2. Donkey Kong Country (4.44)
3. Super Mario Bros. (4.41)
4. Metal Gear Solid (4.33)
5. Super Street Fighter 2 (4.15)
6. Sonic the Hedgehog (4.14)
7. Super Mario 64 (4.07)
8. (TIE) Grand Theft Auto 3 (4.06), The Legend of Zelda (4.06)
10. (TIE) NBA Jam (4.0), Super Mario Kart (4.0)
12. Final Fantasy 7 (3.94)
13. Mega Man (3.89)
14. Half-Life (3.83)
15. (TIE) Castlevania (3.8), Devil May Cry (3.8)
17. Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver (3.7)
18. Mortal Kombat 2 (3.67)
19. Diablo (3.66)
20. StarFox (3.61)
21. (TIE) Doom (3.6), Mortal Kombat (3.6)
23. Resident Evil (3.58)
24. Killer Instinct (3.5)
25. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (3.39)
26. Resident Evil: Nemesis (3.38)
27. Quake (3.2)
28. (TIE) Time Crisis (3.0), Tekken (3.0)
30. (TIE) Silent Hill (2.6), The Sims (2.6)
32. (TIE) Tomb Raider (2.5), Halo (2.5)
34. Gran Turismo (2.3)

We can mourn later, though, as it's time for another game to rate. Whatever shall it be?



And let's take a look....alright, this week's Rate the Game is dealing with...Contra (NES)! Well, damn, Konami gets another shot at getting a game up in the top. Those plumbers and primates have got a death grip up there. Well the question now is how does Contra rate with you? Vote and discuss and be merry! Until next week!



No matter what may happen to me, just remember Lzzy Hale gave me the bedroom eyes.

One of my favorite games to play on NES.




all the talk in the Castlevania thread last week caused me to buy the collection from the Xbox store. Was on sale for $10 which is a steal for IV alone. Also have Bloodlines from Genesis, which I fondly remember.

Great game to it's core, I rate it 4 because it was a tad short and left me wanting more.

I will give it an easy 5. One of my favorite NES games next to Castlevania and Mario. Fun, challenging and just overall, unmatched on the platform.

I can't call myself the biggest Castlevania fanatic but I can easily call Super Castlevania 4 boss as fuck.

This brings up a question: I trust you guys are taking replayability into account?
