Two big classic RPGs that I've never played.
I played through Final Fantasy X for the first time (PS4 version).
The difficulty is all over the place with this game. Especially the gab in difficulty between the boss fights and everything else in the game. Like, it's pretty "easy" for the most part and then you do 30 times on one boss.
Long long ago, there was a man who try to make his skill ultimate.
Because of his bloody life, it's no accident that he was involved in the troubles.
--Samurai Shodown II
Just finished up Super Castlevania IV on the SNES Classic. This was the first game in the series I've played and I can see why its so highly revered. Great controls, level design/variety, music/sound effects and a challenging difficulty that remains consistent and (mostly) fair throughout. Overall I had a great time playing and found it immensely satisfying each time I progressed through a level or beat a boss. I'll have to track down some more games from the series for sure
I'd recommend you to not skip Rondo of Blood. It's often overlooked because it has not ben available on many platforms but it is coming to the PS4 pretty soon and it is actually regarded as one of the best games in the series (and if you'd ask me, it's the best).
Great idea. Maybe this will push me a little.

Well, I've beaten all numbered Gradius games and Gradius Gaiden ^^
3 > 2 > 4 > Gaiden > 5 > 1 is how I would rank them in terms of difficulty. Or atleast that gave me the most troubles.
