The Castlevania series has been heralded for its music since its first appearance on the NES. These games helped redefine what was possible for 8-bit music composition, giving players exquisite melodies which evoked feelings of adventure, mystery, and fear. Every Castlevania game since these beginnings has featured a incredible soundtrack, but while games like Symphony of the Night and Lords of Shadow are quite musically impressive, we here at According to Science wanted to give a special shoutout to the era that started it all. That's right - for this list we focused solely on Castlevania installments which appeared on the NES and Gameboy systems. This resulted in a smaller pool of songs than we're used to, but we're confident that longtime fans and newcomers alike will discover some new favorites.
