I like MetroidOtherM2 but I want to try and break it and this looks like a fun way.

I think Metroid Other M is a bad game because the d pad makes it hard to control.

It kills one of the primary "genres" of Metroid - Exploration

It's a bad game because it takes Samus's strong character that was built up over several games, and has it killed and put on display.

It's a bad game because the logic sucks at times. "We're sending you into a hot area. No you can't have your Varia suit, why do you ask?"

I can go on.

Metroid other M is a great game (I thought) but what I don't understand is why does Nintendo neglect what made the original games so great which is 2D gameplay (just like Zelda) Nintendo needs to make a 2D Metroid with amazing 2D graphics....that would be great (maybe a 0-6 hour games with all secret and everything...(On the WII U of course)

I personally liked Other M's 2.5D style, but the rest was an abortion.

It's way too linear, you have to beat the game to skip cut-scenes, their attempt to justify the upgrade mechanic is badly written, the obligatory pixel hunts are always a pain, having to flip the wii-mote to aim and fire missiles is disorientating, and I'd much rather have health pickups than Concentrating. It's not a terrible game, though, just well below my expectations for the series. If it was just some generic game, it wouldn't be so bad but you expect more from a game that bares the Metroid name.

Here's one I'm pretty much alone on; I didn't like Samus' finishing moves. Everyone says how they look so badass and whatnot, but to me, they're usually too over-the top and anime-like for my likings... and besides that, I just don't think they fit the character.

Wii remote on its side on a 3D game. I personally hate that control scheme. Seems like the Wii U hasn't learned from it though and is even going more backwards considering Mario Party 10 (requiring to use a last gen controller).
