I have only played Fusion and I like it very much.



I am a Nintendo fanatic.

It's pretty awesome so I don't blame you :D



Can anyone give me a recommendation (or whether to stay away from) Metroid 2? I've got some extra coins on my Club Nintendo account and I was thinking I might try and pick it up.

Save yourself the headache and just play AM2R.
Metroid 2 has aged very badly IMO, It just isn't fun nowadays.

Nintendo should have just remade Metroid II instead of giving us Metroid: Federation Force.

Fusion is probably my favorite game in the series, only GBA game that ever made me scared! It did a better job than horror games. I really want to see a sequel to know how the story progresses.

Yeah, I'm with you on everything. Though a Metroid: Super Mission also would've been nice.

Like Super Metroid you mean?

I played it for the first time on the Wii VC but gave up on it quickly, I found the whole world lay-out very confusing and I sucked at the bosses (I'm bad at 2D Metroid games). It has a great ending sequence though (which I looked up on youtube). I liked Fusion more because it was better/faster paced and it had a greater narrative/atmosphere. Not to mention better controls...

And call me a graphics whore, but I didn't like the graphics at all! Fusion and Zero Mission have imo aged much better.

Did we get a ton of new Prime 2 fans here or did somebody spam the poll?

Anyways, I'm thinking about making a hacked Metroid game, like say Metroid 3.5 or Metroid 5 out of Fusion's ROM, thing is, I'm not sure if I'd want to start something like that and stop midway because I'm notorious for starting stuff and not finishing them,

Yeah I'm with you on that, I'd take Fusion and Zero Mission over Super Metroid anyday! Thing is, Super Metroid is a lot more popular :-/
The GBA being 32-bit really helped them make games that're much smoother than SNES games, while also somehow looking as good/better in some cases.
I can't go back to Super's floaty as heck controls after playing Fusion and especially Zero Mission. That's why I want them to remake Super, lol.

Probably people from dark VGChartz found the portal to our light VGChartz and picked Prime 2. :)
