Top 10 Reasons to Be Excited for Metroid: Samus Returns

xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 Finally, another official Metroid game that doesn't suck and isn't lazily shoehorned into the Prime series as yet another pointless spinoff
2 Finally, another official Metroid game in the classic side-scrolling gameplay style
3 Looks to be a much more unique, fresh and imaginatively designed take on its source material than Zero Mission and AM2R before it
4 As far as we know, no more skimping on the actual boss fights and being overly reliant on the cheap and irritating Metroid fights in-between them like what AM2R did
5 It being announced at the exact same time as Prime 4 is basically like the franchise's Fusion/Prime phase from back in 2002 all over again
6 New dynamic aiming system, complete with the badass melee-counter feature
7 Literally "another Metroid 2 remake" to supplement the tragically, unnecessarily copyright-stricken fanmade one before it (and more than likely blow it out of the water)
8 The soundtrack features Lower Brinstar from Super Metroid
9 Has legitimate potential to actually become the next killer app on 3DS, even despite Metroid having only the most insufferably niche of fanbases
10 The cover art is phenomenal

The Contenders

11 Such story, much lore

Actually, not so much compared to AM2R - xandermartin98

12 If it sells well, it means more 2D Metroid games in the future
13 Actually requires you to use all of your abilities at basically all times for once
14 Major difficulty increase for hardcore Metroid players
15 Improved saving system
16 The soundtrack in general is fantastic and also features Lower Norfair from Super Metroid
17 Killing the Metroids is nowhere near as pointlessly irritating as it was in AM2R
18 We now officially have THREE different ways to play the classic Metroid 2
19 Metroid 2 is finally getting recognition amongst the Metroid community
20 Metroid is officially back
21 So many brand-new areas
22 Something else to play on the stupidly overpriced 3DS
