A remix of a video game theme is certainly noteworthy, as such musical productions rarely occur.

Didn't care for it as a whole, but now I want to learn the bass part.

I wish I could delete that game from memory and play again. As a whole, I think I'd rather play that game through start-finish over a weekend than play most new games for a couple of days and be disappointed in crap design, story, gameplay.

If only to experience the final escape for the first time again....the panic you experienced in the beginning escape does not compare to trying to remember your way out of the maze while the clock is ticking down.

and to see the little shimmer of spaceship flying off into safety, letting me know my little friends got out alive. Accomplishing that is worth more than any achievement.

Sadly, the Metroid series seems to have ended with the Metroid Prime trilogy (all three games are worthwhile, though the first remains my favourite). Unfortunately, no Metroid games have been announced or released since Metroid Prime 3.

Blast from the past man that's the exact one i had! I used that badboy until the power / lock button broke off on top. It worked but i had to use a paperclip to turn it on until i upgraded to this sweet piece of 90s cutting edge electronics.

An ENTIRE CD of MP3s, no tracks! To me it was the difference between putting a handfull of songs on my previous one versus being able to put whole folders onto the disc. Folders man, folders! At the time it was madness man, MADNESS.

I get bugged when people do that. They miss out using the opportunity to beat the perpetrators silly with the abomination they foisted on the public. I know that there is a Will Smith movie named "I, Robot", but I have never seen it, because i own the original book, and know the film isn't really a Positronic Robot movie as I would have wanted. But dang it, I use the movies existence as a warning, and while it does nestle into "Complaining About a Show You Don't Watch" as defined by TV Tropes, I don't want to be lumped into the really crazy crowd.

It's not your fault in the grand scheme of things, because I doubt you created it, but I hold you personally responsible for introducing me to that page. The rage...the rage at the fact there are people who rage to the point where they say something didn't really happen, when in fact it did and there's nothing you can ever, ever do that will make it not have happened. THEN the rage at the fact there's a page devoted to that. it's like a rage rage.
