I've mostly been revisiting some of my favorite metroidvanias (Super Metroid, Castlevania SotN, AM2R, Iconoclasts) while I'm trying to patiently wait for the next expansion to Hollow Knight.

I'm probably going to wait a while as GOG probably will get the Linux version of the update last.

On a slightly different note. I always love revisiting Super Metroid and seeing what order I can do things in by sequence breaking. That is such a great game for getting people to think a bit outside the box.

I love those types of games. Full open world sidescroll platformer. I have too many fond memories playing SotN, especially since Alucard looks as though you're playing as a victorian vampire Sephiroth. Loved Metroid, but haven't played since I was a kid, and I haven't tried AM2R or Iconoclasts yet...

I'd recommend checking out Hollow Knight then. It captures that atmospheric loneliness really well, has tight controls, beautiful hand-drawn graphics, great orchestral music, allows for creative sequence breaking, and all the expansions so far have been free.

The base game itself is only 15USD.
