Metroid prime 2 still my favorite. Best suit so far.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

You sure?



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

Metroid Fusion is my favourite Metroid game, would love to see a remake on the Switch.
The Metroid Franchise is up there as one of my favourites. Looking forward to Prime 4.

Okay, let's do this thread right.

1. Super Metroid
2. Metroid Prime
3. Metroid Fusion
4. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
5. Metroid: Samus Returns
6. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
7. AM2R
8. Metroid: Zero Mission
9. Metroid II: Return of Samus
10. Metroid Prime Pinball
11. Metroid
12. Metroid Prime Hunters
13. Metroid Prime: Federation Force
14. Metroid: Other M

Metroid Other M is not worse than Federation Force, Hunters, original Metroid, Pinball or Return of Samus. Not even close.



I haven't played all the metroid games but quadraxis from metroid prime 2 echoes is still one of my favorite and most memorable boss battles ever

Metroid Is awesome, and i want Metroid Prime 4 to be GOAT. That's all i have to say on the matter.

I truly love the Metroid series and I'm always shocked it's not more popular than it is. I'm really curious as to how a new 2D Metroid (on a non-dying system) would sell with the rise of Metroidvanias in recent years.



Signature goes here!

Something that I really think can get in the way of a good Metroid game is a story. The best Metroid titles utilize simple storytelling mechanics that require the player to investigate further if they need more motivation to advance through the game. The fact is, for myself at least, I don't need to know why I'm getting cool powerups and abilities. The only purpose I have when playing a Metroid game is to become more powerful, more agile, more confident in the world. I aim to conquer every aspect of the environment so its something I no longer fear. And achieving that aim is euphoric, like the moment you have Space Jump in Super Metroid, or better yet, when you have both Space Jump and Screw Attack.

That's all we need to compel us to play a Metroid game, and so far, for the most part, Metroid Prime at least has done a pretty decent job of keeping the narrative somewhat secondary. I really hope with Prime 4 they continue the same, but I do have some fears. The regular 2D Metroids need to return to the "less is more" approach when it comes to the story if they want to live up to the greatness that is Super Metroid. Less story allows the game designers to be more free when it comes to areas you can reach out of sequence. They don't need to rely on grayed out doors and hand holding to keep you confined to specific paths. And by all means, stop telling us where to go...please!



Super Metroid is my fav.

But Metroid Prime is a close second. Absolutely amazing games.

I can't believe how many people haven't played this games..

I really don't understan why. The controls are easy to get into, and the beginning of pretty much all Metroid games are awesome. Is it a marketing issue? Someone please resolve this once and for all. Why don't more people buy this game?

I think that some people get turned off by a game that is more of a maze than a straight shot to the finish.  Some people really don't like backtracking as to them it seems pointless, wasteful, or makes them feel upset that they couldn't figure it out.  Personally, back tracking is one of my favorite parts of a Metroid game as it rewards exploration and allows you to take time to smell the roses as you investigate every block and impeded path.  But I do believe there are plenty of people who don't want to have to think while they're playing.
