Rondo of Blood and IV are the best ones.

ReBirth and III are really good, though.

Ok, I looked up Vampire's Kiss on YouTube. It's just Dracula X.

I just got Rondo of blood and love it, mostly the music. Better than the arcade and GB game I played (And no, it was not "Castlevania the arcade", it was Vs Castlevania)

Why does everyone rate rondo of blood so highly? Multiple unwarranted deaths , poor collision detection , a zillion enemies to deal with at once , dodgy controls , the list goes on! My character kept walking and whipping even though i wasnt inputting the commands! And u cant whip on the stairs unlike castlevania IV . This is overrated in my book

Castlevania 4 I can run rings around that game :-D I once scored 290k points on there my first death was on Slogra .

I own all of the VC Castlevanias and i personally would put these in order
1 - Super Castlevania 4 ( What can i say ? i personally believe this is the best out of the classic franchise, when it changed at SOTN 10/10 would defainaitly recommend. )
2 - Casltevania Rondo Of Blood ( lots of hours in the game, branching paths, hidden items and the anime cut-scenes are very good for its time )
3 - Castlevania 3: Curse of Dracula ( Again lots of branching paths, hidden characters
4 - Castlevnaia 1 ( HARD AS HELL, still to this day i cannot complete the first CV, but you can score 999,999 points on the last Dracula fight .. Lol )
5 - Castlevania 2: Simon s Quest ( Meh nothing special i personally like CV 2, others hate it because of what AVGN said about it and just go of that .. )

Such a shame Bloodlines has not been put on there it looks very good and i would certainly buy it in an instant

Well he was correct about its flaws.

Also Ghouls n Ghosts.

A game can be incredibly flawed and frustrating but still remain somewhat enjoyable.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

Ghouls'n Ghosts is flawed? I played the Mega Drive and SNES version to death and can't say that I found any flaws. Also the Mega Drive version (on the VC) is somewhat easy because you have unlimited continues and can use the suspension save. And even after continuing you start at the last checkpoint.

I think you meant Ghosts'n Goblins. But even that doesn't have many flaws. You can beat it if you are patient enough. (At least the Arcade version. I don't know much about the crappy NES version.)

But the problem with Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest is that the translation Japanese => English is total nonsense. The only possible way to beat this game is to look at GameFAQs (or elsewhere) how to do it.

If you use Maria those problems fix themselves, and there are awesome music and cutscenes!

You're gonna get a million different answers, man.
Castlevania 1 for the NES is the most classic, and I prefer it the most. However, it's also the most basic.
Castlevania 2 for the NES is the least linear, but it's also the easiest and most rough around the edges.
Castlevania 3 for the NES is the most advanced of the NES games with the most features and gameplay options that greatly extended replayability and made things easier for both the inexperienced and the patient. It is, however, the most frustrating, with some downright evil level designs and bullcrap moments that'll leave even the most hardcore of gamers fuming at the mouth.
Super Castlevania 4 for the SNES changes things up with a new gameplay style, and it's most technically advanced of the VC CVs. However, it also goes back to the level structure of the first CV, removing a lot of the gameplay features Castlevania III set in, which gives it far less replay value. It's also kind of on the easy side, and it's also a Black sheep in the series. I personally don't care for it, but then again, I'm a purist when it comes to CV.
Castlevania: Rondo of Blood for the TG-CD is a return to form for the series, bringing back the gameplay elements from Castlevania 3 while still keeping the difficulty below controller-breaking levels. The Music and graphics aren't as good as Super CV4's, but it's still pretty impressive at times, and the level design is very good, and it expands on the gameplay set by CV3 instead of taking it away. Still, if you liked the gameplay in Super CV4, you'll be frustrated by the less lenient control scheme in Rond of Blood (which is similar to the rest of the series).

If you're looking for a game to start you off with the series, I highly recommend Castlevania 1, because if you like it, you'll like the rest of the series, since they all build upon its foundation. If you're looking for an easier and more unique game in the series, I'd recommend Super Castlevania 4, since it's the most visually impressive and the gameplay is very different from the rest of the series. If you just want the best in the series, personally I'd say that's Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. It's the culmination of the series, expanding on the gameplay, with the best balance of difficulty, high replayability, some impressive graphics and sound, and some of the best level designs and boss fights out of all of the VC CVs.
