My favourite Metroid game

Super Metroid

The Metroid games are great, but for me Super Metroid has just never been beaten. There is no single reason why it's a superb game, it's atmospheric, has great music and graphics and most importantly excellent game play. It just has everything that adds up to make it a great gaming experience.


  1. I am too ashamed to call myself a retrogamer, having not played this. I shall rectify this oversight tomorrow. I loved Fusion on the GBA, so this is a no-brainer really.

  2. What? Never played Super Metroid. Get away from my blog and never darken my doors until that has been rectified. ;-)

    I love the game, it's absolutely fantastic.

  3. Not just one of the finest games from the 16-bit games, it's also one of the best games to come out from Nintendo. Heck, it's one of the greatest games, period.

    When I was playing through Super Metroid on the Virtual Console last year, I FINALLY learned how to wall jump! After that, it was a cinch to do in Metroid: Zero Mission when I played through it again.
