Post Put your Metroids in order
Spook started it.

Metroid Prime > Super Metroid > Corruption > Zero Mission > Echoes > Fusion > Metroid > Prime Pinball > Other M > Hunters

I haven't played Metroid 2 enough. My brother had a Gameboy and I borrowed the game, but had to give it back. TS is fixing me up nicely, and Metroid 2 is in the mail. :metroidanim:

Toughhhh

Super Metroid > Metroid Prime > Metroid > Prime 2/3 > Zero Mission > Fusion > Hunters > Pinballlol

Still need to get a Wii again someday, to not play Other M. ;-)

Metroid 2 I've also never finished so I won't put it up there. Someday...

Don't own Hunters, and pinball doesn't really count imo. Metroid 2 is my underdog, because despite it not being as fantastic in terms of music or design, it has some incredible atmosphere, it's a pivotal chapter in the saga, and has some well-designed enemies. Also introduced many gameplay elements and designs that still exist today.

Already made it before...

*search*

No way to find it. Just have to start over...

Prime > Super Metroid > Zero Mission > Echoes = Fusion > Metroid > Other M > Corruption > Hunters

Haven't played RoS. Pinball is a very good game IMO, but no way to put it here.

And yes : Prime is f**king genius !

Post Re: Put your Metroids in order
You guys putting Prime first - why? I know I vote with a definite bias towards nostalgia (and good 2d in general), so someone convince me that Prime is better than Super.

I agree it's amazing and was ahead of its time in 2002, but would it have had the same impact if it were the first (or only) Metroid game, in a Universe where Metroids 1-3+Fusion never happened? Did the Metroid IP help Prime, or (in my case) hurt it, by always having to be put on a Spectrum with Super Metroid, which is just about as close to a Perfect game that I've ever played.

tl;dr: SM frvr k?

I like Prime more than Super Metroid. That's it.

I would say the same thing about Prime. I played SM way after everyone else, so I'm sure that has something to do with it.

Post Re: Put your Metroids in order
It's funny I think Prime vs Super Metroid is almost like a LttP vs OoT kind of thing. It's like they're the same game, but OoT/Prime brought that stuff to 3D and did it really well.

If Prime were a game without the Metroid name, yeah it probably would've lowered my interest a bit but I'm sure I probably would've still stumbled upon it and loved everything about it.

I say it all over the board but I always think Echoes deserves more love. Nothing I'd put first, but it's a step up from Prime 3 and the increased difficulty was more than welcome. Guess it's a love it or hate it kind of thing, like Majora's Mask!...

Metroid Fusion > Metroid Prime > Metroid 1 > Metroid Prime 2 > Metroid: Zero Mission > Metroid 2: Return of Samus > Metroid Prime: Hunters > Metroid: Pinball (if it counts) Metroid Prime 3: Corruption > Super Metroid > Metroid: Other M

Fun-wise (or rating wise, if you will)
Super Metroid > Metroid Fusion > Metroid: Zero Mission > Metroid Prime series (in order of release) > Metroid: Other M > Metroid 2 > Metroid 1

I guess that explains my bias.

Super Metroid > Metroid Prime > Zero Mission > Prime 3 > Prime 2 > Fusion > Other M > M2 > Original

I haven't actually played the original or M2 that much. I got to the ending of Prime 1 and 2, but didn't beat the final boss each time. I just decided that was close enough. Did the same thing in Fusion, actually. I have beaten Super Metroid over and over and over.

I've decided that I really had fun playing Other M, but it's not a very good Metroid game. If I don't think of it in that context, and skip all the cutscenes, and don't expect to do any exploration or backtracking, it's good.

Pinball is fun. I play it from time to time.

What is this "Hunters" of which you speak?

I flogged M2 relentlessly when I first got my gameboy. It's not Super Metroid, but it's still damn fun. Some of the music in it is quite good too... *nudge nudge, wink wink* ;-)

Super and Prime are really close, but I think Super is slightly better. I haven't finished Prime 3 or Other M just yet, so I don't want to cast judgement on those. I haven't completed the original or II either, but I don't expect to do those anytime in the forseeable future.

Not sure how this is supposed to go, but I'm going to put them in the order of my favorites to least favorites
Echoes > Super > Corruption > Other M > Fusion > Prime > Metroid II > Zero Mission > Pinball > Metroid > Hunters
Yes, I've played all of them and beaten all of them with 100%. I obviously have no life. And the sad thing is, my girlfriend encourages doing this lol

While I would replace Fusion with Echoes, I agree with your sentiment on the "f**k everything else" front.

Why do ppl hate on Hunters? Sure its not the best Metroid game, but it sure as hell was an awesome DS game. I love Hunters. But everyone is putting it last... :( And how is Zero Mission better then Fusion? Took me a 10 hours to beat Fusion. Took 4 hours to beat Zero Mission. And I did a nice amount of collecting ing Zero Mission. Dont get me wrong tho, I love Zero Mission. :)

Prime/Super (no seriously. Dead tie) > Fusion > Prime 2 > Zero Mission > Original > M2 > Prime 3

Hunters was a mistake and an insult to the Metroid name.

haters gonna hate

SM > Prime1 > M1 > Corruption > Hunters > Fusion > M2 > Prime2 > ZM > Pinball

I base my criteria (crateria?) on the impact each game had on me at the time they were released.

I don't get the beef for Echoes or Other M.
Hunters was okay, but it just wasn't Metroid.

Prime 2 > super metroid > prime 3 > Prime > zero mission > original > metoid 2. I haven't played the others.

I love the old school version, but the first person world explorer thing is just sweet. Prime two actually made me scared I would die at any moment and have to go back to my save point, the other two didn't.

Post Re: Put your Metroids in order
This is really hard. I love every Metroid. I beat the Queen in Metroid II a long time ago, just because I had a used copy, which was all I could ever find, and there was a file with all items collected, but I only beat the entire game myself a couple of years ago for the first time on an emulator. If I had to put them in order (Corruption through Metroid II are all fairly even, but I was just winging it.) it'd probably be like this:

Metroid Prime>Fusion>Super Metroid>Corruption>Zero Mission>Echoes>Other M>Hunters>Metroid II>Metroid

The reason I put the first Metroid NES last was because it's the one that I've played the least, ironically. :shot: I rarely got far without using NARPAS SWORD0 either. :shot: I never had an NES or SNES, so I had to wait for Super Metroid to come out on the Wii Virtual Console... :shot: (I didn't know about emulators at the time.) I played Fusion first, but Zero Mission was the first Metroid that I got. I was looking for Fusion, but I couldn't remember which one I had played. I guess it's good that I got Zero Mission since it was both a remake of and had the original on it. I thought Prime was perfect. After Echoes, I got the rest of them whenever they came out, so I guess I would consider them fairly judged. (If you know what I mean.)
