  1. My first attempt was Super Metroid in a hospital. They had a Sega and a SNES.

    My favourite is Corruption. My favourite 2D Metroid is Zero Mission.

    • Reminded me of Dr. House, who played Metroid in a GBA SP in some episodes.

  2. I think my first Metroid game was Metroid Prime on the Gamecube. It was an absolutely fantastic game, and I can recommend it to anyone. I’ve played most of the games since then, and I think my favorite in the whole series might be Fusion. The gameplay and atmosphere are phenomenal. I’m a fan of both styles, and I think the 3D games lend themselves more to building the lore of the areas you visit, thanks for the scan visor. The 2D games often have a more focus on fast-paced action, which they do wonderfully. I’m really looking forward to whatever Metroid game comes next, it’s been surprising that we’ve waited for so long without much word on the next official game. I can appreciate what Federation Force is trying to do, but I understand the want for a main-series game.
