Still plugging away at learning to like Metroid. Decided to try the game in the series that I had the most fun with.

Now while this is a good game, even in its era it was not mega super special awesome. It was just a game that was not complete tripe.

Decided to start over, as my last save file had somebody hijack my game, and play it a certain length. So I decided to see if the only reason I liked it was because I was further.

I still like this. It is not the most awesome game out there... but at least this one is fun to play... in small digests. I really could not see myself sitting down in front of this for too long.

If you're trying to like the series rather than experience it through, it's best to start with Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion, or Metroid Prime. Those are easily, EASILY the best three.
Yeah--have been trying Super Metroid... not loving it at all. I am enjoying this one a lot more than when I was playing Super Metroid.

Maybe I will pick up Metroid Fusion again--do not recall it being an awesome game when I played it last time (with people commenting on my disliking of it, as, "well, it is not one of the better Metroid games")

At this point, I am more than a little leary of getting Metroid Prime.

As I think the only reason Metroid got popular was due to the Justin Bailey code in this one.
You are obviously completely insane :P

And who are these Fusion haters? I will beat some ass up in here.
@amedeus8 what? Because I suspect the only reason people like Metroid games at the idea of seeing Samus Aran with next to no clothes on?

Yeah--it was a long time ago that I had to deal with the people who dislike Fusion... it would have been about five or six years ago that I was playing Fusion thought. Maybe I need to revisit it?
Wil Wheaton has a section in "Just a geek" about playing Metroid on NES way back when, it ends with him and his brother playing all night to finish the game and then they go "Dude, he's a chick!"


....Well it's funny when he says it ;)
@AlexanderA It sounds funny now.
