The games from the genre created by Metroid and solidified by Castlevania Symphony of the Night.
And what is a metroidvania? It's a sidescrolling platforming game where you can explore an interconnected map at will and find new abilities that then you can backtrack and use to reach previously inaccessible areas, so the game opens up by means of new traversal skills as you explore it. Some of these skills even can be used in combat situations too.

What I look for in a metroidvania, personally:
* Cool traversal powers;
* Challenging platforming;
* Lots of content;
* Cool art/music;
* Puzzles;
* Exploration.
Note that none of this is mandatory, just desired by me.
