#45: Castlevania: Circle of the Moon (2001)
Last Year: 42

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon was as much of an impulse buy as you can get. I have no idea why I bought it when the GameBoy Advance launched in 2001, as I had never played a Castlevania game before then. Maybe it was the awesome sprite graphics or maybe it was the thought of battling a plethora of famous monsters from fables and myths. But buy it I did, and at that point I was introduced to the awesomeness that is the Castlevania series. Super tight controls, engaging gameplay, beautiful sprite graphics, awesome music, and a wonderful gothic-inspired world full of monsters and demons to strike down. Not only that, but the game was immensely replayable, with multiple different modes that changed the nature of the gameplay. I played this game so much that it wore down the cartridge... so I bought another one. You know a game is great when you played it to death. Thanks for introducing to the wonderful and sinister world of Castlevania.
