What exactly is wrong with Metroid Other M? *SPOILERS*

#1liveman789Posted 4/14/2013 10:10:22 PM
I never really understood the overall hate for it, as I've never played the game. But, the reviews don't seem very bad at all.

So, what exactly is so bad about it? If it's story wise, spoil away. I don't mind.

Here's a good example.

Retro Studios originally thought Samus was a generic Hunter similar to Boba Fett who was a hard ass. Nintendo said she wasn't that kind of "hunter" which confused Retro as what they thought was dramatically different from what they were told.

Replace "Retro" with "fans" and you should have your answer.

Fans originally thought that Samus Aran was an all-around badass butt kicker, but Sakamoto corrected them all, saying that all along she was actually an emotionally-insecure child with severe daddy issues, who needed a man to lead her around by the nose and tell her what to do because she was a woman, and thus inherently inferior.

Boy, were our faces red!

It just had poor writing. That's all.

AND NOTHING MORE ABOUT IT SHALL BE SAID. Seriously, there are two other topics on the front page that both have reached between 50-100 posts and involve the exact same people making the exact same arguments that they've repeatedly made to each other, over and over and over. You all suck at debate, so please stop.

I post on other sites, too. Don't think that's how I spend all of my time.

I don't know, everything's been pretty much said already, but the diehard defenders of the game just won't accept that people hate it.

Oh, hypocrisy...

Seriously, Buretsu, Pandaman, those guys whose names start with C, and all the rest: No matter which side of the debate you're on, you're failing horribly at it. All of you. You cannot claim A, be refuted with B, refute with C, be refuted with D, then refute with A, and continue like this for literally years with the exact same people. And you certainly can't act smug about how obviously right you are afterwards.
