Given the general attitude at the time that Nintendo was a flash-in-the-pan passing fad, I have weirdly complex feelings about articles highlighting my outcast childhood hobby as history.

The music in NES metroid scared the hell out of me when I was a kid. My favorite metroid game is.... Axiom Verge :p

Yeah, Axiom Verge was fantastic.  The new side-scroller is apparently a direct sequel to Fusion, which I loved the absolute hell out of.  I wish they'd get off their asses and port the Prime trilogy to Switch; Nintendo's always really weird with their blend of rehashing old IPs while keeping the older games themselves locked in the vault.

The one for the Super Nintendo was excellent. I replayed it a couple of years ago and I think it still holds up pretty well.

I remember beating Metroid and seeing Samus under the helmet. Then beating it again and she took off her armor.

She never took off her suit after the third time I beat it. So disappointed.

There are solid arguments about why it's sequel "Super Metroid" is the best game ever made. If you like retro gaming you should definitely seek it out.

I couldn't play super Metroid. I would watch and help my older brother. But I always had severe hibby jibbies when I tried to play alone.

Recently (like last week recently) found out Hip Tanaka released an arrangement album for Metroid and Kid Icarus all the fark the way back in early 87, before Metroid even released here. Pretty neat moody, synthy takes on the main theme and other tracks, including the extra bits of the Escape Theme that ultimately ended up in our version of the game but not in theirs.

Some time after the release of Metroid Prime I got it in me to try to run through Metroid II: The Return of Samus after not having played it for at least five years.

Without a guide, I managed to get through it in under three hours, getting the best ending.
