We all needed an Inoue, especially for this frickin game series.
Yeah, this was one of the few games I really needed a Game Genie just to beat. I see he plays Milon's Secret Castle in one of his videos. For the life of me, I never figured that game out. I always got stuck in one of the first places you go and couldn't move onward.
Games of Milon's Secret Castle were split into three distinct phases.
Phase 1: Make it to the well with the correct items to complete it.
Phase 2: Actually complete the well.
Phase 3: Figure out what you need to do in the towers in order to beat the game.
I made it to phase 3. Sometimes.
I found Castlevania 2 to be way easier. I mean I wouldn't always get a "good" ending, but I could be guaranteed to be beat the game sooner or later, as long as I just kept slogging through it. The only boss in the whole game was Dracula.
The challenge to Castlevania 2 was figuring out the ridiculous adventure game bullshit, which was impossible without a guide.

I loved this game, even with its horror inducing impossibility. I can't wait untilhe takes on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles(the non arcade version).
Also, only trade Grant for the Mage(and onlyif your daring)
People that say Castlevania III is the best in the series have never played the bottom route.
Bloodlines, now and forever.
This is a good, and quite hard, game, but it's certainly not the best. I go for Bloodlines too as my favorite.
Bloodlines was a great way to end the series. SOTN, although a breath of fresh air in the context of 1997 (first Casvtlevania in years, one of the few 2D games on PS1), was the beginning of the end of the precision platforming and difficulty of the earlier games. Turning Castlevania into a grindfest was a huge mistake.
Urrrrrrrrrrrrgh! That fucking bat! I remember there is the point where I quit.
Huh? This game was middle of the road as far as NES difficulty went. The original Castlevania was a lot harder.
How was the top path a shortcut? You had to play through an extra level (twice!) and then you still had to go through the owl level.
Wow, was this scripted to have him fail for more laughs? I know it's some middle aged guy being hilariously beaten by old games, but he's usually a lot better than this. Here he just keeps walking straight into enemies and never uses Alucard's bat to skip the problem areas even after he knows about it.
How can you beat Ninja Gaiden but not this? That's like beating Battle Toads but not a Mario game.
I'd argue that, unlike Ninja Gaiden, the biggest challenge in the NES Castlevanias is adapting to the clumsy, unintuitive control scheme. During the owl stage I was yelling THROW THE CROSS ARINO GOD DAMN but realized it took me awhile to reliably use subweapons while jumping.
You must own some hacked Castlevania cartridge that removed the holy water, because that's the only reason I can see for someone saying that CV1 is way harder than CV3.
You don't even need the cross. Just jump and whip the owls before the reach you. It's like he forgot the jump button existed the entire video and kept getting hit into pits by flying enemies. Since that's pretty much the entire Ninja Gaiden experience I was baffled how he managed to beat that one but not this.
It took most kids 15 minutes to realize the knife was the worst weapon and that Alucard/Grant were mostly useless for anything but bypassing problem areas. Arino never figured it out after 8 hours of Alucard's weakass fireballs failing to kill anything before it hit him.
It's a funny video but it almost seemed staged. Out of the tons of 8/16 bit era games these guys dig up, Castlevania 3 was the hardest? Your average Mario game is more difficult.
If they really want ratings they'll throw him to the mercy of Ghosts n Goblins or Battletoads.

How are you supposed to play video games all night without weed? Unless that white thing on their heads is some kind of ingenious Japanese THC patch these guys are doing it all wrong.
I remember one time my brother was on acid, trying to play Super Mario 64, and I kept fucking with him and telling him he needed "The Rainbow Key". It's right there in the lava, man.
oh shit the boner lamp!

I watched the whole thing and felt really frustrated and angry along with him. Then they played a Capsule song right before the end, and I felt better.
Wow, I just watched a Youtube video on how to properly fight Dracula.
Apparently just using the subweapon on the second form is the 'wrong way'. Attacking it with the whip gradually destroys the faces on the thing, partially stunning it and causing less Dracula jizz to seep out as each face is destroyed. Attacking with the subweapon will not destroy the faces and thus slow down its attack.
Of course you have no way of knowing this and wonder why its beating the shit out of you 200 times in a row. Konami wanted people that did it the 'wrong way' to pay the price. Fucking Konami!
