When I used to go to Blockbuster as a kid and rent games I kind of forced myself to judge a game by its cover. It was shameful. its one of the reasons I never got Super Metroid in the SNES era.


Aw... that makes me sad.

Super Metroid is like my second favorite game of all time.

2nd only to Ms. Pac Man.

However, how is this:

Not the greatest game, but it was fun:

I hate listening to dreams. It's like flipping through a stack of pictures. If I'm not in any of them, and nobody's having sex, I just...don't care

For some reason I never even noticed Samus on the cover, the Dragon just bugged me for some reason. It looked like a futuristic RPG to me lol.

Don't worry years later I went back to play it without any nostalgia glasses (since I never played it before) and the praise was well deserved.
