The Metroid Series Official Thread Metroid, the series that started the phenomena of female protagonists. Starting with the original game, we got a strange and very interesting spin on scifi for the NES. The exploration of Plant Zebes was a experience that will not be forgotten for those who had the privalage to play the original game. Ever since then, there have been games in the realm of 2D that were like, disliked, hit, missed, but ultimately entertained us as kids through it all. Games that made the 2D platform in order: Metroid, Metroid 2 Return of Samus, Super Metroid (aka Metroid 3), and Metroid Fusion (Metroid 4). A remake of Original Metroid was made on the 2D platform called Metroid Zero Mission, and it was rather good too. With the advent of 3D gaming going full swing with the Gamecube, Metroid Prime made the scene. This promoted much skepticism and many were not too sure that'll go well. Once people got their hands on it when it hit the shelves, it blew any doughts of it being a good game out of the water. It gave a new experience we now love today. I personally can vouch for the Prime series being excellent. With Other M and the new Federation Force coming out, there isn't much hope for a proper new Metroid game coming out soon. Though I still stand firm in hope. It may take a few years but Metroid will be in the upswing again. Go ahead and discuss the Metroid series with others. Whether you are interested and never played it before or someone who knows the games well, tell us what you think or want for the series. I'm a major Metroid buff myself and I'm sure other have played and enjoyed it too, so don't be afraid to ask questions! Discuss away!
