Top 10 Questions to Ask Metroid Fans About the Franchise

The Top Ten

1 Should there be an official Metroid/Halo crossover?

One word: YES! (That is, if Nintendo and Microsoft would collaborate or make a new system together, but I doubt it will ever happen...)


Realistically, no...but in my dreams, most definitely - xandermartin98

2 Most overrated and underrated games of the series?

Overrated: Fusion
Underrated: Prime Trilogy - iliekpiez

OVERRATED: Metroid Fusion, Super Metroid, Zero Mission, Prime 1, AM2R

UNDERRATED: Other M, Samus Returns, Metroid 1 and 2, Primes 2 and 3, Hunters - xandermartin98

3 Best remake game, not counting Super Metroid and Prime 1 of Metroid 1 and Super Metroid?

Samus Returns - iliekpiez

Honestly, AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake) for overall quality

Zero Mission for authenticity and especially fanservice

Samus Returns for combat mechanics and creativity - xandermartin98

4 Favorite Brinstar theme between the original, Upper Brinstar and Lower Brinstar?

Original - iliekpiez

Original for heroic motivation

Upper for being just plain badass

Lower for its chillingly dark atmosphere - xandermartin98

5 Favorite moment in Super Metroid besides the final boss and ending sequence?

Crocomire death - iliekpiez

It's kind of a tossup between Crocomire's death, electrocuting Draygon with the Grappling Beam, overgrown Brinstar and the ancient Chozo Ruins in Lower Norfair if you ask me - xandermartin98

6 Which was scarier to you, Prime 2 or 3?

Prime 2 atmospherically, Prime 3 story-wise - xandermartin98

7 Fusion Suit or PED Suit?

PED Suit - iliekpiez

Both suits' absorption gimmicks become entirely useless once the parasitic threats that they were designed to protect Samus from have already been removed from the universe altogether...but aesthetically, I'm going to have to go with the Fusion Suit on this one - xandermartin98

8 Was Other M REALLY that bad?

Gameplay was fine, but Samus was so good but they just ruined her. - iliekpiez

Other m is not as good as the prime games but its still good

Well no, certainly not AS bad as it's made out to be, but still very much a 5/10 game - xandermartin98

9 Light Suit or Phazon Suit?

Phazon Suit - iliekpiez

Honestly, Phazon Suit looks A LOT more badass, but Light Suit is WAY more powerful overall (AND is actually a real suit, whereas the Phazon Suit was really just a glorified Venom symbiote layered on top of Gravity) - xandermartin98

10 Favorite beam upgrades?

Hyper Beams - iliekpiez

1) Annihilator

2) AM2R Ice Beam

3) Nova Beam

4) Prime Wave/Plasma Beams

5) Hyper Beams - xandermartin98

The Contenders

11 Overall easiest game in the series?

Tossup between Super, Fusion and Zero Mission, with Prime 1 and 3 being not far behind - xandermartin98

12 Most annoying thing about Metroid Prime 2: Echoes?

Dark/light world transition cutscenes

(that, and also the Boost Guardian boss fight on Hypermode difficulty; yes, even WITH the updated Wii Remote + Nunchuk controls) - xandermartin98

13 Your opinion on Zero Suit Samus?

Hot. ^_^ (And I don't care what anyone thinks otherwise)

14 Ridley or Meta Ridley?
15 Should Ridley be playable in a future Super Smash Bros. game?
16 SA-X or Dark Samus?
17 Ice Beam or Ice Missiles?
18 Which was stupider: recovering health by concentrating really hard in Other M, or ammo by absorbing green parasites in Fusion?
19 Super Metroid or Link To The Past?
20 Favorite Super Metroid ROM hack?
21 Which was overall creepier on your first playthrough: Metroid Fusion or Super Metroid?
22 Best overall soundtrack of the series?
23 Favorite final bosses of the series?
24 Do you forgive Metroid Fusion for serving as the main source of inspiration behind Other M?
25 For the side scrollers, do you prefer eight-directional or gyroscopic aiming?
