    I have Super Mario 3D All Stars digitally so the joke is very much on you.

    Yeah I do as well. But it's not available anymore, I mean.

    Played 10 minutes of Metroid, loved it so far. Has the right nostalgia feels with the music. Fun controls

    Made it to the third zone in Metroid Dread. This is my first Metroid game. Enjoying it so far, I’ve died a fair number of times. Not sure if it’s gonna beat out Hollow Knight or Ori but we’ll see.

    I almost envy the people who never played a Metroid game before this.

    I've been playing Metroid since the original on NES. I've probably played and beaten Super Metroid a literal hundred times...and it's making Dread a hundred times harder as a result.

    I have almost thirty years of muscle memory playing Super Metroid in me that can't just be switched off over night. Playing a 2D game with a control stick, free aiming with the L-button, switching to missiles with the R-button, parrying with X, sliding! Sliding! I've been at it for hours and I still haven't gotten the morph ball, but I can run, aim-and-shoot, leap and parry, land and slide like a shortstop...and sometimes do it all while looking halfway adequate. Sometimes I hit the buttons at the right moments and what appears on the screen looks as fluid and smooth as peak Bruce Lee. Most of the time, though, I looked like Michael Scott trying to do parkour.

    Loving it though. So glad to have 2D Samus on the big screen again.

    Yeah you could say that. The one hit kill from the EMMI things can get maddening

    I actually deflected once (not counting the tutorial), felt like a god.

    Metroid is more fun as you unlock powers. I think the aiming is clunky — feels like an outdated design.

    Gotta say my favorite game is watching my OLED Switch do a lap around every FedEx facility in the Midwest en route to Florida.

    Picked up Metroid today. Would love to see a Prime redux from GameCube.

    Also hope to see Conker’s Bad Fur Day released online. That game was top notch.

    Well not the very beginning. That NES game is hard to enjoy these days. I played it to death as a kid in the late 80s but time has not been good to it.

    IMO, play these games if you're trying to get into the 2D Metroid experience:

    Zero Mission
    Samus Returns or AM2R
    Super Metroid
    Metroid Fusion
    Metroid Dread

    Though playing Super Metroid after Zero Mission and either Metroid II remake will be tough because there are gameplay additions and quality of life improvements that weren't there in 1994. Still, Super Metroid is the GOAT so have at it.

    Not defending it but put 6 people on it and it’s $13.33 per person, or a little more than $1 per month per person.
