WOW.

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.

The original was kick ass.

All after that are not nearly as good.

Metroid and Kid Icarus are my all-time favorite games. They blew "Zelda" out of the water!

Yeah. I'm not too sure about that, but it was pretty good.

Yes. I bought the special edition pack for my nephew and played it. They are all addicted to it over there. Even caught my older sister playing it. It's just not my thing.

I don't think anything can compete with my memories of playing the original for hours on end with my BIL. And the twist at the end that blew our minds.

Right on! I understand. The original was fantastic! So was Super Metroid for NES.

Really just the immersive quality of running along and independantly aiming your gun wherever is amazing.

That was a good one. I think it is $5 to download that one to the wii console. May have to do that.
