Like Rol, I've beaten everything except pinball. In my opinion, it's the perfect series.

I love Metroid games, but I have the hardest time finishing them. I usually get near the end and find that I don't have enough energy tanks to beat the final boss and the idea of hunting down hidden stuff in all the places I've already been is so exhausting that I leave it unfinished and play something else. I've never been a 100% completer and the Metroid games kind of punish you if you don't actively search under every rock. I own and have played about 90-99% over each Metroid game, with the exception of Metroid Pinball which I don't have yet. Maybe I rely too much on the energy tanks and not enough of suit powers. I still love the series though and keep buying them, I even bought Metroid Prim Trilogy so maybe I'll replay the first two games and this time power Samus up to the extreme.

Start with Super. The NES one can (like a lot of NES games) be extremely obtuse, though the most frustrating thing about the NES one is that every time you put the game down and save, you start with only the basic amount of energy (you keep your acquired tanks, but upon restarting, they're all empty) so you have to grind your life back up every single time.


That's what put me off the game eventually.



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

None, sadly.
I was planning on getting Other M (or that other one made by Retro) when I was younger but it never played out.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Is there a particular order storyline wise for the games or it doesnt matter which one I play like Zelda?

All main series except Prime 3 (unfinished) and Other M (unplayed)



Super Metroid will always be one of my all time favorite games.

The chronology is thus:

Metroid/Zero Mission
Metroid Prime
Prime 2
Prime Hunters
Prime 3
Metroid II
Super Metroid
Other M
Fusion

But ultimately the story tying any of them together is very loose. For instance, playing Other M before Fusion would clue you in on a few things in Fusion, but the game will always make everything you need to know to appreciate the story explicit, because aside from the big things (What has or hasn't gone extinct yet) the overarching story has minimal impact on each game.

Super Metroid's story is basically a re-tread of the original Metroid: "the Space Pirates are trying to weaponize Metroids in their base on Zebes. Stop them."

The ending of Metroid II does help you appreciate the impact of the end of Super, but that's neither here nor there.



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

All of them except the original and Metroid 2.

Those games have aged very poorly.
