I just came in to say Metroid 1 sucks hard.


Preposterous.

Metroid 1 is a classic. If it had an in-game map it would be regarded much more highly. Obviously the graphics are dated, but the gameplay is solid.

The story and dialogue and cutscenes etc. destroy Other M's enjoyability but everyone seems to forget that it still has fairly solid gameplay. I strongly suspect a huge portion of it's critics have never actually played it.


The gameplay? You mean mash dpad to win?
Yeah ok.


The gameplay? You mean collect items to win?
Yeah ok.



I can strawman everything too. It might not be difficult but it's essentially easier Ninja Gaiden with light exploration and power up collection elements which is relatively fun. Not every game has to be ball crushingly difficult to be good.


collecting items and powering up isnt mindless. Mashing the dpad isnt.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

Legitimate question: How good are the pinball physics in that game? I do enjoy me some pinball so I'm always on the lookout for some fun.


They're great! And the dual screen set-up works wonderfully too, heck, even the touch-screen tilt works great. All in all it's a great pinball game, and probably my favorite game on the DS. Great Metroid content too, really does a good job representing Prime.

I'd also recommend the multiplayer mode, back in the day we used to play with up to eight people, lots of great fun.

No one cares what you're currently playing.

Super->Prime->Zero Mission-> Prime 2-> Prime 3-> Fusion->Other M-> Metroid-> Metroid 2

Super is still the best and prime is arguably as good. I would love another Prime 1 like game from Retro, or better yet another Super Metroid as Other M was NOT super metroid.

I enjoyed the sense move, and the insta kills but I should be able to get energy capsules, and missiles, and give me some &%&%#$^*# exploration! dont give me an obvious crack that leads down a narrow path to a missile expansion and then back to the main room. Super metroid hidden paths always lead to big vast new areas to explore. I miss that.

People are going to rage at me...

01. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.
02. Super Metroid (Metroid 3).
03. Metroid Fusion.
04. Metroid Prime.
05. Metroid: Other M.
06. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.
07. Metroid.
08. Metroid II: Return of Samus.
09. Metroid: Zero Mission.
10. Metroid Prime: Hunters.


Anyone that rages over the opinion of favorable games is an idiot. Questioning why you like particular ones is okay, but attacking for opinion is idiotic and does not deserve recognition.
