Catlevania Series

Catlevania Series

Castlevania is a whole series of games, with about 40 titles if you count all of the spin-offs. Grimoire of Souls is a 2D side-scrolling game, and Lord of Shadow is a 3D action/adventure game with a lot of content. This gives the company’s fans a wide range of games to choose from.

Castlevania gives a new spin on a classic story by adding to and changing it. In the series, Dracula goes to war with people after they kill his wife because they think she was a witch. The famous vampire-hunting family, the Belmonts, and Dracula’s dhampir son, Alucard, fight against the legendary vampire and his war on humanity. They fight through waves of demons that Dracula sends after them to get to the legendary figure himself.

Legacy Of Kain: Blood Omen 2

Legacy Of Kain: Blood Omen 2

Legacy of Kain has been called one of the best vampire-themed games ever made. It is a series that follows the adventures of the title character, a vampire, through a unique and original world. Players can enjoy action, adventure, exploration, and puzzles in this series of games. Blood Omen 2 shifts its focus away from puzzles, which were a big part of earlier games in the series.

Not only that, but Kain is back as the player character in Blood Omen 2, after Raziel took the lead in Soul Reaver. The team that made Blood Omen 2 put more effort into Kain’s character and story, making him more interesting. Blood Omen 2 goes into Kain’s past and shows how he tried to start his own empire.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt is the best game for gamers who want to feel the power of vampires but don’t care much about story or world-building. Bloodhunt is a battle royale game based on the tabletop RPG Vampire: the Masquerade. Each player takes on the role of a vampire and can choose from a few clans from the TTRPG. More clans will be added in the future.

The game is fun, fast, and full of action. Depending on the clan and subclass chosen, players can stun enemies, jump through the air, or make themselves invisible. Fans of VtM’s complicated story might not find much to like here, but battle royale fans will have a lot of fun.



Dontnod’s vampire RPG is a long way from Life is Strange, the game series that put them on the map, but gamers were surprised by how deep the game’s mechanics, story, and lore were.

The story takes place in Victorian London after World War I. When army doctor Johnathan Reid goes home, he is turned into a vampire. He wakes up in a mass grave full of bodies, blinded by his thirst. He trips over a woman and drinks her blood, only to find out too late that it was his sister. With such a scary start, the weight of his sin hangs over him for the rest of the game. This raises the question: can a vampire keep their humanity and resist the urge to drink blood, or are they all doomed to give in? In the end, it’s up to the players to decide.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Redemption

Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption

Even though the graphics and gameplay are a bit old and the game’s mechanics aren’t as good as they could be, Redemption is a huge and sprawling RPG for people who don’t mind the game’s age. Redemption is mostly about how Christof, a French Crusader from the 1200s, became a vampire.

The story of the game moves through the ages, all the way up to the late 20th century, when Christof is in London and New York looking for his lover, who was taken from him hundreds of years ago. As you might expect from a vampire game, the player will have vampire powers to help them on their quest. They will also have to make hard decisions that could cost them their humanity, which is a burden all vampires have to carry.

V Rising

V Rising

V Rising is a great game for people who want a gothic vampire experience that will challenge them. V Rising, made by Stunlock Studios, has an immersive and open world that players can explore. They can also upgrade their castle, gain allies, and defeat enemies while trying to avoid the sun’s deadly gaze.

V Rising is a surprisingly rich experience, with a deliciously gothic world, a lot of monsters to beat, and even a Dracula expansion that gives players a bit of Transylvanian royalty flair, which fans of the book will love.

A Vampyre Story

A Vampyre Story

This point-and-click adventure game is devilishly charming. It tells the story of Mona, a woman who is turned into a vampire and taken to a castle to live with her kidnapper, who is also a vampire, until an accident with a stake frees her from his hold. Then Mona leaves to go back to her home in Paris, but the trip is anything but easy.

Slope Game has a lot of charm, and names like Baron Shrowdy von Kiefer show that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. However, the game’s lightheartedness goes well with its creative art direction and the story of a woman coming to terms with what she has become. It’s a great adventure you shouldn’t miss.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong

Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong

Fans of Dracula who liked how it added to the vampire mythos should definitely check out Vampire: the Masquerade. It adds to the vampire mythos in a unique and ambitious way, with different species (clans) that have different powers and drawbacks. Vampires live among humans in secret, pretending to be part of the living so they don’t get caught by hunters who are getting more dangerous with the help of technology.

Swansong includes three of the clans, and each one has a different way of playing. As they investigate and uncover conspiracies in the nights of Boston, they have to be careful not to let their animalistic sides get out of hand. Galeb of Clan Ventrue can use abilities like “Dominate” to control other people’s will, “Presence” to charm or persuade them, and “Fortitude” to take damage. Emem of Clan Toreador is a siren who can use Presence to lure her prey, Auspex to see beyond the veil of the living, and Celerity to leave quickly if she needs to. Leysha is one of the Malkavians who has premonitions because of her Auspex power. She can control other people’s minds and memories with Dominate, and she can hide herself from other people’s eyes with Obfuscate.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines

Bloodlines, which has been called one of the best RPGs of the early 2000s, wasn’t always so popular. Bloodlines came out as an unfinished mess of a game with so many bugs that most players couldn’t even start it up. Critics and gamers alike wrote it off, but it got a second chance when dedicated fans fixed it with the Unofficial Patch, making it playable, improving the graphics, and adding extra content.

Since then, it has gotten praise from RPG fans all over the world because it has a great modern-gothic story about the struggles of becoming a vampire and the same White Wolf faction and clan politics that made the series popular in the first place. Bloodlines is a must-play for all vampire fans because it has a cast of colorful NPCs, lets you choose from 7 core clans, and has more than one ending.
