I thought I would make a thread where I can look at different games and examine their graphics in some detail, maybe see what makes them tick, and why they might be appealing or not. I don't know how often I'll be doing this, or whether I'll be doing it more than once, but I thought it might be interesting/helpful.

Tonight I am going to look at Castlevania 3, because I found a page full of handy screenshots, and while they may not be pixel/color perfect they highlight the game's graphic design very well.

I always thought that Castlevania as a series on the NES looked very "busy," graphically crowded. They tried to cram in as much detail as possible with very limited graphical capabilities, and didn't always succeed.
