Sure, walking through an exact copy of the same room for the 27th time is an awesome experience xD

We had the map in our heads, it was the password system that made it janky.  Getting stuck in pits was <ahem> the pits, too.  But as far as the feels are concerned, the original Metroid was an experience I'll never forget.  In retrospect it doesn't look or play as smooth as later Metroid games, but at the time it was cutting edge.  It was hands down the best game on the system...save for maybe Zelda and Super Mario Bros for the fun factor.

But the fact that Super Metroid took you back to the same world gives me the nostalgia coupled with great gameplay, sound, and sequence breaking to the nth degree makes it a much better experience for my money.  Of course you may just be trolling with your comment anyway.

My best time glitchless 100% was around 75min, can't remember exactly.

Is that in-game time or real time? (edit: just noticed the "100%" part, yeah it's obviously in-game time lol. I never did 100% speedruns, but my best any% was around 65 minutes in real time.)

And honestly, that urge to sequence break is a very Metroidvania thing. I try to sequence break every Metroidvania I play, even on the first playthroughs - I even played Super Metroid out of order, and that was my first game in the genre lol.

One of my favorite franchises. Couldn't get my hands on the original until much later but that Metroid II Gameboy commercial made it a must have. After that, I was hooked.

Super Metroid is the ducks nuts.

A remaster of that is worth the purchase of any Nintendo system.

Trying to source a copy of Metroid Prime: Trilogy... But the prices on those discs are bullshit.



I remember having truly a difficult time with Zero Mission which was my first attempt at a Metroidvania game.

Samus Returns nonetheless completely convinced as for why I should be interested in the series. One of the best 3DS game on the system and one of the few utilizing the 3D right !

Lots of good fan remakes and Nintendo doesn't even strike them down.

Amazing series, think outside of Mario and Sonic it's possibly the franchise where I have the most games completed.

One outstanding thing for me was during metroid Prime, I upgraded to a 32 widescreen philips TV after buying my GC and was so happily lost in that game, playing it til all hours of the night... and only late on did I realise the flashs that you see sometimes when you strike something too close to Samus... those eyes man, they scared the hell out of me when I actually seen what it was on screen. Amazing effect and I think it still holds up to this day just how subtle it is in the game.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8
