While Castlevania hasn't gotten much new content in the way of games lately, its been lighting up the charts on Netflix. The animated series is doing a lot to stir up nostalgia in some lapsed players, and that includes DC Comics' writer Scott Snyder. In an interview with Comicbook.com, Synder talks about his time with the Castlevania series, both when he was younger and nowadays.
"We bought an arcade this past Christmas, and it's really like a PC in an arcade cabinet; you can get any old game through Popsicle through its library, and we've been playing the Castlevania games. Look, I love the classic Universal Monsters -- Invisible Man, Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolf Man -- from when I was a kid. In the house, I have my action figures from when I was a kid: The glow-in-the-dark Creature from the Black Lagoon, the Boris Karloff Frankenstein -- all of it. I adored that game and I remember struggling with the Frankenstein Monster, with the Igor on his shoulder, and throwing holy water to keep him from getting closer and closer. I don't think I ever beat the first one, but I did get to Dracula."
