Hey all! Squalid Pumpkin here. I've recently created a list of games fitting the Metroidvania criteria (as well as generally Castlevania- and Metroid-esque games), and would like to share it with you all and ask if any of you have any other titles to offer, or perhaps suggestions for the list. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Super Metroid, Kirby & the Amazing Mirror, Tomba!, Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap, Mega Man ZX, Cave Story, Shadow Complex etc., they're all here. There's also a category for Castlevania-esque games like the Shaman King: Master of Spirits series, 8 Eyes, Inferus, Barnyard Blast: Swine of the Night and one for Metroid-esque games like Scurge: Hive.

The list can be found at Mr. P's Castlevania Realm, from the following link...

I've just sent Mr. P an update to "Metroidvania List", which can also be found on Listal, where I frequent under the username "Pumpkinate":

http://www.listal.com/list/metroidvania
http://www.listal.com/list/castlevaniaesque
http://www.listal.com/list/metroidesque

Very nifty site if you like to keep track of what you own or list things. The Listal version of the Metroidvania list has less items on it than the vgmuseum.com/mrp version due to not all the items (especially the online ones) being in the Listal database. Plus, it was on vgmuseum.com first!

The Metroidvania List has been updated with neater alignment for the games. There are still some updates to be made - especially when the next burst of new Metroidvanias comes pouring in with the release of the 3DS.

I've begun work on another article titled Metroidvanias in Review. I'm keeping myself busy with lots of games so I can add some more reviews to this list (and for fun, of course), so expect it to grow. I'm also collecting pictures since that always helps pretty a review up.

I am working on a Listal version of that last one, but will release it to the public when it's more comprehensive so I can receive more votes and thus the list will get more noticed.

As, contrary to Listal, there's no way to comment on these things besides shooting me an e-mail, if anyone has any comments on any of these articles just make a post here and I'll respond. Thanks!

Okay, so I've updated my Metroidvanias in Review article . A while back I released the Listal version too, in case anyone wants to check that out as well.

What's been added:

1) I touched up a couple of the older reviews for minor specific reasons.

2) I added a review for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, "The Great Maze" to the Consoles section.

3) I added reviews for Dr. Franken and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Radical Rescue to the Handhelds section.

4) I added reviews for Daniel X: The Ultimate Power and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions to the end of the Handhelds section.

I plan on making a somewhat minor (though important) update to my Metroidvania List soon... I'll post it here when that happens.

The Metroidvania List has been updated! What's been changed (beyond the usual addition of new titles/arranging of titles in proper sections):

1) Since I've received two e-mails sharing some, I added a Flash subsection to the Onlines section.

2) I added descriptions of each credit to the Credits section describing how exactly each contributor helped out.

3) I abbreviated most of the primary systems to those the video game community is used to, to conserve space. The indenting has been altered to match the thinner listings.

Thank you very much, guy! Obviously I haven't updated either for a few months, but I'm certainly keeping tabs on what new MVs come out and own several that I need to play and review.

making lists is fun. I list LPs by band and video games by series!

I hate to advertise, but you should love Listal, then. Here's a few lists I've made that I'm particularly proud of and which should give you a sense of what can be done with the site:

All-Time Favorite Video Games | Comic Book Collection | Game Characters Meme | Giant Monster/Robot Movie Faves | Greatest Giant Monsters/Robots | Childhood TV Favorites
