Metroid My Friend
Samus: A Rememberance
Metroid.. ahh what can one say about one of the best classic games of all time.
My first encounter with Samus was on the snes. The first time playing it and getting to the boss just to die was sad and exhilarating. I was in love with Metroid. I was in love with the gameplay the artwork the music (so relaxing) and finally Samus. I then went back and played it on nes then gameboy then gba. Loving ever minute of it until that fateful day when samus and I ended our journey together when she transcended into the 3d realm. I could not and can not go with her...

The metroid series was like a good wine.. tastes great at first, but then sour's over time. And That is sad. Games should be like new wine.. the longer it stays, the better it gets.
This series is not how it used to be, (you know a series is going when you see a pinball game of it)

I always liked the 2d gameplay of metroid,but didn't think jumping to 3d was good. The series dosen't even feel like Metroid anymore. Metroid Other M is ok with the flashbacks, but the game is not the same anymore. (makes it feel like any other game out there)

The best thing about metroid was it's uniqueness, now it's just a game.

I will always love you Samus (but you've gotten old girl) :)
I will always remember the great times we had,
Goodbye Samus :(

Dude I agree 100%. Metroid Prime wasn't as good as it could have been, and I refuse to play Other M. 2D was the best.

Everyone's entitled to their opinion but I thought Metroid Prime was absolutely fantastic, and Super Metroid was my favorite game growing up. Prime found a way to equal it for me. And I'm usually not a first person guy, but I just thought everything about it was fantstic. I don't prefer one style to the other I love first person Metroid and 3rd person 2D Metroid.

But yeah Other M is garbage it was made by Team Ninja. The next game Team Ninja worked on after Other M was Ninja Gaiden 3, both garbage. I don't even consider Other M a real Metroid.

I still play Super Metroid and that game is even more fun now that I can properly wall jump and X shot. If any of you haven't watched the guys at AGDQ or SGDQ speed run any of these games you need to check them out. Search them on YouTube.

I love playing these type of games, these are the games that taught you how to play games. Nowadays games have become so simple so easy so 3d
