I must have beated Metroid over 100 times, and loved it every single time. In fact, I love the experience every single time I play the game, I got so excited just thinking about it that I said "beated" in the first sentence when I should have said "beaten", lol.

A bunch myself. I've gone for the best ending and won in in under and hour, and I've taken the time to get everything in the whole game too. Lots of fun still.

I completed it back in the 80's when I first got it and didn't mess with it much after that. I recently dug out my NES and started Playing with it a bit, but to be honest, I've more time with Deadly Towers and Zelda :)

Kind of embarrassing, but I want to say it anyway:

In the late 80's when I first played Metroid, I used to be completely, totally OBSESSED with the fact I was on this mysteriously dark planet, trapped inside a maze, and I had to find my way out of there. I still remember very clearly the atmosphere, and the feeling of adventure this game gave to me. It was like I found the reason why I exist, lol.

Even though I'm an adult now, every so often that feeling comes back, and I remember what it was like to feel the excitement of exploring a strange and wonderful planet that I felt so strongly when I was just a kid. For that, Metroid will always remain a great game to me.

The way I see it, we're on a Metroid message board. Nothing should ever embarrass you ever again lol.

lol, alright :)

I think it's the music in the game that plays a BIG part in the memories. You know, you start up the game and hear this eerie and memorable dark theme. You never forget something like that as a child, so when you come back to it years later, a chilling feeling comes over you.

and when the game begins, you get a catchy upbeat theme, that urges the player to explore the planet. Both of these themes play a part in adding to the unforgettable experience.

Kraid's theme gives you this feeling that the place is very desolate and dangerous, and it sure is isn't it? There are parts of Kraid's lair you never have to go to, but it's cool that you can if you want. And all the FALLING down that huge vertical room with those destructible blocks... Ahhhhhhh!!

There's also that one part in his lair where you can (attempt to) bomb jump from the left side and over, when from the right side it's very easy because that's the way the designers wanted you to go. But the fact that you can do something that's not what they intended for you is awesome, no matter how small.

Yup, Kraid's theme gives off a feeling of a confusing puzzle that keeps looping, and you can't find your way out of there. I was IN that situation a few times, and can relate :)

I was never able to master the bomb jump trick. I thought I had it plenty of times, but I either messed up the rhythm, or something else went wrong.

I can do it, but I don't think that move was intentional and as such it doesn't work a lot of the time. They've since made it an "official" Samus move, so that you can do it much, much easier in later installments like Zero Mission.
