Castlevania

Searched and didn't see anything recent this cheap on Switch. May need to redeem in the e-shop on the Switch itself.

The games are pretty good. But nothing compares to the original. That's arguably the best game on nintendo and an all-time classic.

Ah. There's no reason to suspect you'd have to use joycons to play it. They really suck for old-school games, I agree.
We only use fullsize controllers for all the games my family play.

Hopefully someone can help my lazy ass. What games would these cover that I don't already get for free from my NSO sub?

That only works for single-player. You need ...B A Select Start for two-player extra lives. iirc. And that recall is going back a loooooong way....

For those who don't have fond memories of these games, I don't recommend them.

Super-castlevania was a pretty looking nice quick level-by-level platformer. But 1 player. And is definitely outdone by modern metriidvanias like Hollow Knight. The nes castlevanias are unplayable imo.

Contras are pretty good for laughs if you have a buddy. But weaker than many modern co-op platformers and twin stick shooters like Enter the Gungeon or bro-force.
