Metroidvania is a subgenre of action-adventure video games. The term is a portmanteau of the names of the video game series Metroid and Castlevania, with games in the genre borrowing from both series.

Typically based on two-dimensional, sidescrolling platform gameplay, Metroidvania games feature a large interconnected world map the player can explore, though access to parts of the world is often limited by doors or other obstacles that can only be passed once the player has acquired special items, tools, weapons, abilities, or knowledge within the game. Acquiring such improvements can also aid the player in defeating more difficult enemies and locating shortcuts and secret areas, and often includes retracing one’s steps across the map.

Through this, Metroidvania games include tighter integration of story and level design, careful design of levels and character controls to encourage exploration and experimentation, and a means for the player to become more invested in their player character through role-playing game elements.

  1. How is Ecclesia on here? It was like the dollar store Aria. Really at this point no CV title should be in a difficult metroidvania list… not any more than a metroid title. Once they ditched the pit and spike insta-death mechanics it's was an uphill climb into approachability.

  2. I'm average at games and I didn't find Blasphemous very hard at all. Some of the platforming is infuriating though.

  3. I didnt expect to see Valdis Story en the video

  4. Honestly I'm just happy to see Order of Ecclesia footage and seeing it presented pretty much anywhere.

  5. How about Slain: from Hell, and Valfaris?

  6. does anyone think Circle of the moon is harder than ecclesia? I personally think so just because of that Dracula fight.

  7. lol at hollow knight being considered difficult

  8. This video would be a lot more useful if it said WHY these are the hardest Metroidvanias. If you explained what makes each game difficult then people would be able to decide which ones they should try to beat based on their own abilities and play style.

  9. beated Blasphemous but gave up Teslagrad (tower ascencion), thats not even in the list

  10. I only played "salt and sanctuary" and hollow knight, I really loved those games
    I got platinum on salt but hollow knight i really had a hard time completing the white palace but the path of pain I couldn't unfortunately, I love this game genre because of these two games..

  11. i really found that to be a good list! would you consider bladed fury and bladed assault to be metroidvanias? i think they are.

  12. q asco los juegos todos pixelados en 2021

  13. Hey, many of these games are underrated. I have found some titles that took my interest to play. thanks for sharing mate.

  14. Wait. Hollow knight is the hardest? No way. Why i feel its easy. Compare to dark soul

  15. Blasphemous is one of the most difficult and beautiful games I ever Played. A real work of art. Highly recomended! Confusing history though…

  16. I love the imagry and lore of of hollow knight so much I wish I wasn't too dumb to play

  17. Dead Cells is not a Metroidvania… I will die on this hill.

  18. Are these available for vita? Or 3ds? Don't have a switch yet

  19. Dang I thought katana zero was gonna be in this list.

  20. Feels like you’re running out of ideas.

  21. Awesome! Definitely in agreement with Blasphemous haha

  22. Nämen så trevligt med svenska spel!

    Translation: oh, so nice with some Swedish games!

  23. bits&Beats make a new video:
    Metroid and castlevania: ohhh!! So you decide to break…. *Sees they are in the list*…
    Ok… For this time…

  24. What song is this in the first game cathedral

  25. I consider Dead Cells practically impossible, it took me 300 hours to accept that I couldn't get the true ending, which is only unlocked on hell difficulty.

  26. Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse is up there. Jesus christ those controls are just awful.

  27. to think that most people have never beat Simon's Quest
    the truly very first Metroidvania that ever happened
    and the one that had the balls to be legit Cryptic
    even games such Demon's souls and Bloodborne took so much inspiration from it's concept

  28. Who else is counting the days to play Metroid Dread?

  29. Wait a minute…
    Castlevania order of Ecclesia is here but not Circle of moon?

  30. You forgot Dark souls, the best and hard metroidvania game

  31. Played eight of these. Only finished three of them. So far…

  32. I've postponed playing hollow knight for way too long. also, your outro rocks too much, sir.

  33. Thank you for including Valdis Story. It is such a beautiful yet underrated metroidvania.

  34. I'm sorry, but who thinks Order of Ecclesia is hard? I feel like the Metroid-like Castlevanias can't really be considered hard when you can level up and farm equipment and heal with potions. I guess there was one particular challenge in Order of Ecclesia that was really hard, but pretty much only that and a couple of fights only.

    And I also didn't think Momodora was particularly hard.

  35. Grime caught my attention. Is it really THAT hard. If it is, I’m passing

  36. Rabi-Ribi is excellent, fully recommend that one.

  37. In no particular order / Sin un orden en partícular

    Enjoy! Disfrutad!
