My favorite Metroidvania game is Castlevania: Symphony of the Night though. As I was very much into rpgs at the time, the rpg elements, and the Metroid elements mixed into a Castlevania game made me love that game a lot. But it was also due to many of its unique ideas, like the upside down castle, that it became such a memorable game for me. And one that I have replayed a few times as well.

I have no idea how this has came to be, but I have never played Symphony of the Night.  I've played all or most of the GBA Castlevania titles and have loved them all, but for some reason I just never had access to this game.  It's certainly a game I look forward to playing, but for some reason not enough to seek it out.  I'll have to do something about that soon.

The GBA ones are similar, and a couple of them were even produced by Igarashi. Interestingly enough I never played the GBA games for some reason, but I did play Order of Ecclecia for DS, which I also liked. I'm curious to try them out. Especially the ones made by Iga.

Symphony of the Night is one of those games that's commonly mentioned among all time greatest games, so it has popped back up on newer consoles in many different iterations, so it shouldn't be hard to find a version of it to play on a current system, if you're interested to try it.
The game features a really nice soundtrack as well.
