Sure it does. One or two zoomers claiming they enjoy retro games doesn't change the fact that game preference is highly correlated with age.

no it's objectively not
platformers, rpgs, adventure games, etc are genres
retro is an age term like vintage
like no one goes out looking for "vintage records", and wants it to sound like xyz, they're looking for old records
well usually they do want it in a genre but then you'd say something like "vintage rock cds" or something

Castlevania has clunky controls like most early games; it came out in Japan in 86 and third party NES devs often struggled to get stuff to control well. Late period Konami titles like TMNT III almost feel like they're on a completely different system.

>> No.8913906

The controls are great, tight and responsive. The fixed jump arc has nothing to do with controls, and it's an intentional gameplay feature. Castlevania isn't a platformer, it's an action sidescroller like Rush'n' Attack / Green Beret (which has the same fixed arc jumping), it's closer to Kung Fu than it is to Super Mario Bros or Adventure Island.

The Goonies by Konami came out 7 months before Castlevania and had more free jumping. Because the game is more of a platformer than Castlevania.

>>8913163
but it does you retarded retrofad zoomie, how else do explain somebody that wasn't even born back then not liking a very early form of control scheme?
I mean, how the fuck is someobody stupid enough to not understand that Symphony of the Night's control evolved through the years and was not magically put into the first game in the franchise?
And you see plenty of similar posts on /vr/ proving the point...

>Castlevania isn't a platformer
Then maybe it should have had less platforming? What a stupid argument. It clearly has a massive focus on platforming.
