Basically what the title says,what do you define as a "Metroidvania" games and what makes it different compared to other genres for you? I define Metroidvanias as games where you explore a large interconnected area,find new abilities to uncover new areas. I count games from Metroid and Castlevania up to games like Hexen,Hexen 2 and Powerslave (Exhumed in Europe) as Metroidvanias. But what about you?
I believe I would define metroidvania as a 2D or 2.5D sidescroller with a large map, backtracking, bosses, weapon upgrades, treasures, hidden passages ect. Hollow Knight which was linked in another thread is a good example in my personal opinion.

purifyweirdsoul: That's all true, though the actual fighting game of SFxT got great in the 2012 patch. It felt like an older Capcom fighting game. We used the default gem sets too, so that DLC wasn't really an issue

purifyweirdsoul: Hopefully Injustice 2 is careful with its gear system, to not be much like how the gems were. That could be a problem
