45. Super Metroid (SNES)

First Played: 2003

Times Completed: 5

I enjoy all Metroid games, from the NES to the Wii, but this is still my favourite. The exploration, upgrades and the atmosphere are what makes it such a good game. The balance of difficulty is just right and even though I’m pretty familiar with the game, it can still provide enough challenge when I replay it every few years. The gameplay gradually gets more and more complex as you unlock new abilities and you are able to reach new areas of the map. This is pretty similar to all Metroid games, but the execution just seems a little better in this SNES game.
