I just watched about 2 hours of Angry Video Game Nerd and saw his piece on the Castlevania series of games. It was one of those series I just never played, even though I can recognize it's greatness and see why it gets so much love. It seems I missed out on some major games for arbitrary reasons.
For me I missed out on all the Metroids - tried it and liked it, but never liked the box art for any of the versions enough to buy it. I know lame excuse.
Resident Evil - I have 4 but never played it beyond the first ten minutes or so. I can see how they were good though.
Rachet and Clank - They seem to be great games, but I just never cared to play them, even the ones I have.
You guys have some similar experiences?
