Oboro_Jack commented on Talking Point: Is The Castlevania Series Finis...:

I'm a huge fan of the series and would be sad if Konami ditch Nintendo. I've pretty much played all the games in the series on many different platform and I like the many different approach Konami took with each iteration. If they didn't take different approach the series would've gone stale much sooner.

Unlike a lot of fan I actually like the Lord of Shadow series because of the story, presentation, combat system, and atmosphere. The music was different but understandable because you can't really apply Michiru Yamane's style to LoS. Even so I thought the music was pretty good. With Mirrors of Gate they took some of that element and made it more of a 2D classic Castlevania, which is cool too. My only gripe with Mirrors of Fate was that it was too short and it couldn't make up it's mind on whether to be a classic Castlevania or a Metroidvania. I would love to see the next Castlevania be a mix between Metroidvania's exploration, RPG elements, secrets and Lord of Shadow's combat, presentation, and atmosphere. And yea you can say LoS was a ripoff of GoW but GoW was also a ripoff of other games in the same genre.
