Metroid other M has now placed the Metroid franchise at the pinnacle of my gaming all time list.
The old NES and N64 games were fun as hell at the time.
Metroid Prime took the idea of the original and morphed it into the most mesmerizingly bas ass first person game imaginable. the Wii version took it 1 step further with the pointer moving the gun so seamlessly you lose yourself in the realsim of it.
i was at first put off by Metroid other M, because it doesn't use the nunchuck........how can you get the immersive realism with just the wiimote?
Other M blends the simplicity of the original side scroller, with the ability to point the wiimote at the screen and suddenly switch to first person view and blast with the pointer as seamlessly As in the metroid prime 1,2,3.
Metroid Prime is the most immersive first person shooter possible. I am not arguing that it is better than other games (although I will) but this does put the wii forward as the single best platform (again not arguing best games necessarilly) since you point a gun, you point the pointer. No little crosshairs on the screen moved by a toggle can touch it.
