Article created[edit source]

I've copied the extended version of this article from Wikipedia, which is currently in the process of deletion. Cheers 12:07, 15 December 2006 (PST)

Er, I'd also like to add that while copying from Wikipedia is generally discouraged, I feel it's acceptable to do so for two reasons:
  • Reason 1) The article on Wikipedia is currently up for deletion (with nobody weighing in with a Keep yet), so it's likely going to be gone soon and the article deserves better then that.
  • Reason 2) I'd estimate that roughly 80-90% of the article as written was contributed directly by me to the Wikipedia article anyway, so rewriting something I've already written makes little sense.

Metroidvania - Metroid-like Castlevania or Metroid-like-Castlevania-like game?[edit source]

Metroidvania - Metroid-like Castlevania or Metroid-like-Castlevania-like game?

This needs to be addressed or resolved in this article.  Calling a game such as Metroid itself a "Metroidvania" makes no sense whatsoever and is completely redundant. 20:59, March 12, 2013 (UTC)
