That is...actually a hard choice.

I've loved all of the games, each had a unique grasp to it and the overarching story was beautiful, even to this day I still return and watch whenever I am dull. From Blood Omen's dark tale to the hopeful end of Defiance; the Legacy of Kain is, as Denis had perfectly put it, 'Memorable'. Even Blood Omen 2 despite its apparent disdain compared to the rest of the arching story, with its purpose being the repercussion of Soul Reaver 2's Paradox from Raziel's original fate.

My first real attention into the series came when I was real young and my father was playing Soul Reaver. That intro captured me and my imagination, it had an influence that I will forever treasure and appreciate in ways I can't really describe. The shakespearean language that the series used, the fantasy violence, the styles of the setting and the vampires was so unique and different, and growing up - it only grew from there to the point my dad often tease me if I was a vampire.

I almost fell into a rant just thinking about it all. All in all, they are all my favorite - despite the puzzles. I would even suffer the puzzles to enjoy this series and their secrets are still being unveiled to this day! When I found the small coven of communities that had the same passions as I, I had a certain peace to know that the Legacy of Kain will not die if by some cruel fate that I would wander away.

However, if I had to make one choice - it would be probably Soul Reaver because of Kain and his empire. Even if it is just a leap from Blood Omen and its original placing, I can say with all my heart, it was a good sequel that few games these days can't truly match.

The Correct Answer will always be Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain.
It was the first really dark game I played and was so excited to get it at launch {though i'm sure i was a little bit under age but my parents didn't mind} and it so far has been the best dark game I have played.
Hoping it will be replaced by DHS of course, but it will always have some great memories for me.
