Proteus Ridley.


Despite that, I'll probably be replaying it in the future. I think Super and Zero Mission are slightly better overall, though.

Same here, though I'll probably go ahead and add Fusion to that list as well. Not that the game was bad in any major way, but when I think of Metroid, Super and Zero Mission are what come to mind to me personally and Fusion was just very unique and amazing in a completely different way. Samus Returns on the other hand, as amazing as it is, is still just Metroid II. The hunting Metroids premise just isn't as interesting to me as the other games that have way more unique boss encounters than just the varying Metroid forms that you kill over and over again. Only 3 bosses really stand out for me and they all occur towards the end of the game. I also gotta say, it felt weird not having the speed booster in a 2D Metroid game. Still a great game though.

Anyway, anyone seen the Chozo memories yet? They look so damn amazing in 3D and the last one makes me very excited for the possibility of Metroid 5.

I'm not sure what games I like the best. It's probably the Prime games because of their first person view.

Super Metroid was the first game I seriously played, and owned. I just bought it on a whim with some of the money I got for Christmas in 1994. Since then, I've been buying Metroid games as they came out (sans Metroid Pinball and Federation Force), and decided to get the first two. I got a used copy of Metroid II where there were just a few Metroids to defeat, and I actually defeated the Queen Metroid in it. I still haven't really played through the first two.

Believe it or not, I still haven't played all the way through Other M either.

You're not missing anything.

This somewhat spoilery video breaks it down.



I finally beat this game last night with 70%. I'd like to see at least one more traditional (less melee oriented) Metroid game on the 3DS in the future, but I might actually purchase a Switch if the sequel is on that platform as well.

A future port of Samus Returns would probably create less hand cramps when playing on the big screen with a Pro controller.

Now that I'm done with it, I might actually finish Fusion...
