Yeah, I know it's random, but I did love Simon's Quest. I liked the different elements of the game; the whole night/day thing, and the strange way that you had to complete the game. I usually played sports games, even back then, but I loved that one and it just stuck. It was a lot less linear than the first Castlevania.
True, very different. The whole day/night thing WAS cool and pretty unique for that time period. Awesome music though, even if I wasn't overly crazy about the decision to make it non-linear. Still a great game though even if the Angry Video Game Nerd hates it,
I thought they executed the non-linear mode in Castlevania 3 the best. Still somewhat 'linear' but kind of the "choose your own adventure" thing. Thought that was cool.
Breaking the terms of the thread, best non-linear Castlevania game was Symphony of the Night though in my opinion. Ever play it? Bought it at Montgomery Wards for $10 before they shut down.
