What Other M brings to Smash sucks, or is done worse than other games.

It doesn't do any unique areas - at least, nothing that FEELS unique (its basic setting is "space station with alien environment simulation areas owned by the GF", which is the exact same thing as Fusion's setting); Samus' design is smaller and worse in both suited and zero suit form; Samus doesn't have any new, worthwhile power-ups; no new items; and quite frankly, if there are any bosses in the game, the best to include would be one of the bosses that were ripped from past Metroid games. There's just nothing creative about this game.

I can't tell if you're defending Other M, disagreeing with my points, or thread ****ing.

Perhaps all of the above?

Indeed. People just start spewing stupidity when they fervently (and irrationally) hate something.

Metroid went downhill years before Other M.

Other M was the nail in the coffin.

The Other M hate is pretty rational. There are enough reasons to hate Other M that could fill a book. I'd love to read that.

So, do you have the time to comment on what I said? Since I don't have a proper rational for my hate, it should be quick. Am I wrong when I say that the most noteworthy elements of Other M are from other games, or don't do anything that feels new from previous games?

The only element that can be taken from Other M that couldn't be taken from other Metroid games is making Samus weak. So, if Sakurai explicitly makes Samus bottom-tier, it would be very much accurate to Samus from Other M.

There's a fair statement to that. Fusion was polarizing, it wasn't nearly as smartly-designed as Super Metroid. Metroid Prime 3 also felt too linear. However, their contributions to the Metroid canon are at worst harmless, and at best very important. They have very good settings, and the atmosphere is fantastic.

Honestly Vyers, I say you should ignore any of the posters acting like Metroid is still a good series or that Samus is a good characters.

You can put them in the same list as the Sonic and Zelda defenders.
