    The castle in Resident Evil 4 was massive and grandiose,was my fave area

    Is the castle in Lords of Shadow really better than the one in Symphony of the Night?

    Drangleic Castle looked very impressive from the outside, what with all the heavy rain, and the shape of the castle against the moonlight, but the actual interior areas where very bland and empty. It felt like an unfinished area of the game.

    Final Fantasy IX castle was also awesome. That one even had wings. Also Figaro Castle in FF VI could hide itself under the desert. My favorite Bowser Castle is the one in Paper Mario. It can float while carrying Peach's Castle and look mean, it even had an angry smiley. The black fortress in Bomberman 64 is also a favorite, a mix of high tech and gothic design. Also the structure in Pandora's tower, who has it's own overdramatic video:

    All this is nonsense, Rogue Legacy had the most imposing castle.

    First thing to come to my mind as i read the title was the Nali Castle from Unreal. It pales in comparison to most of the examples in this article, but it was both a technical and an artistic marvel at the time.

    Damn I love the vista where you first see Drangleic. I actually stopped for a good. 2 minutes and stared.

    It might be just me, but I consider Anor Londo's castle to be far more impressive, imposing, and just pretty to look at. Sure, Drangelic's Castle is perhaps bigger, but it honestly doesn't look particularly memorable, what with looking as grey and dour as most generic castles. Anor Londo's castle says "Fuck that shit" by being a fucking Golden Castle sitting pretty in a eternal sunset. And it even makes you pay more attention to it by denying easy access to it. "Front door? Pffft, wimp, you gotta EARN your passage, up the battlements and chandeliers and ceilings with you!"

    I like Anor Londo for the feeling of accomplishment you get once you've taken down Ornstein and Smough, as well as making it past those damn archers. However I like Drangleic for not making me put up with either of those two things. I also like the room of death with the friggin ruin sentinels behind every door, and the King's Passage was one of the most badass things with the lightning going on and the dread of wondering just when are these statues going to gank me.
