I've been contemplating about Nintendo, and I think that they're slipping. Like Apple, they seem to just keep on running by making remakes and what seems to be "Plan B" games. Nintendo doesn't seem to be doing very well either; the Xbox and Playstation are slowly catching up.


Is Nintendo just milking fanboys of their money? It kinda feels like it.

Well, yes and no.

Does the name Mario boost sales? Of course.
Do they make bad games just for money? Nah
Do they recycle games akin to guitar hero/rockband? Not that badly (look at how much changes between non-sequel games, 64->sunshine->galaxy)

They make excellent games, and their characters become known for it, and its an unwritten deal between us that they won't fuck us with a flagship title. Even wii music must have been fun for the "wii crowd"

I personally quite liked other m, while the prime series wasn't fun for me.

Personal preference and making bad games are different.

Why's Other M get all the hate?
I think it's a rather fun game that adds a bit to the Metroid formula.

What I think is the worst Metroid ever.

What I think is the second best Metroid ever.

What I think is the worst Metroid ever. There's no any exploration, is only a mocking Sakamoto’s crazy statements ("maternal instincts", "so young and naive" trailer, etc.). So please, don't compare this shit with Super Metroid. I insist that Retro be assigned to make a 2D Metroid for the home console. It would be glorious.

Off the top of my head and in no particular order:

1) Samus' voice actor is mind-gratingly horrible.
2) Completely unnecessary and counter-intuitive first-person wagglestick mode.
3) Due to 2, no Classic Controller/Gamecube support, forcing your hands to be raped NSMBWii-style.
4) The complete desecration of a character we used to know and love.
5) Nonsensical plot.
6) Easy-mode permanently enabled (auto-targeting and magic-dodge-everything).
7) Completely linear level design.
8) Unimaginative boss battles.
9) Generic soundtrack that fails to compare to that of any previous Metroid game.

Uh, Fusion and Zero Mission were awesome.

The Prime games and Other M are totally different; it doesn't make one or the other bad. And you shouldn't nessacarily judge someone based on their post count. (See:me

Juan - why is zero mission not a "true" metroid game, while the original is? Its a remake. A really good one, at that. Fusion wasn't bad either...

I understand Other M but how are Fusion and Zero Mission not "true Metroids"?
Zero Mission is a remake of the first Metroid.

Added something that make the game the worst Metroid.

I hope in the next Metroid, Samus doesn't have the period. Oh, and developed by Retro Studios.

Zero Mission is a remake of the first Metroid.

Well simply because the linearity imposed by Sakamoto to place certain presentations what make just losing the spirit of the original Metroid, making them lineal. The best thing would have been a completely revamped NES Metroid technically and solving the two major challenges to the game, but no, Sakamoto wanted place a story in the game although the animations are 4 or 5 that say nothing.

Off the top of my head and in no particular order:

1) Samus' voice actor is mind-gratingly horrible. (Playing a game for voice acting is worse than playing a game for graphics)
2) Completely unnecessary and counter-intuitive first-person wagglestick mode. (I thought it added something new, practice with it)
3) Due to 2, no Classic Controller/Gamecube support, forcing your hands to be raped NSMBWii-style. (If you had problems with NSMBWii's controller, you may want to go back and play an NES title)
4) The complete desecration of a character we used to know and love. (Silly opinion is silly)
5) Nonsensical plot. (Unless you read up on them, other Metroid games have almost no plots)
6) Easy-mode permanently enabled (auto-targeting and magic-dodge-everything). (Didn't you have a problem with the controls anyway?)
7) Completely linear level design. (Play Fusion... enough said)
8) Generic soundtrack that fails to compare to that of any previous Metroid game. (Playing a game for music is just slightly better than playing for graphics)

Also, Juan, they are indeed true Metroid games. While not the best in the series, they're still loads better than what most kids today play.
