Top Ten Reasons Why Metroid Is Overrated

All metroid games are completely overrated! And I honestly don't care what you say to me. Because everything on this list is true. Enjoy.

The Top Ten

1 The Characters

Let me stop you right here. This listt was made by a bunch of idiots/trolls/ignorant people/Nintendo Haters/misinformed fools. People these days are just used to Call of Duty and such where the whole thing is spoonfed to you. Metroid remains as one of the few examples of a game where you ACTUALLY HAVE TO THINK in order to find out what to do next.

The characters are awesome! What the hell! - IronSabbathPriest

Mostly Other M has terrible characters. Metroid Prime has Dark Samus which is 100% unnecessary. - Chaotixhero

THE CHARACTERS ARE AWESOME! - venomouskillingmachine

2 You Never Know Where to Go

That's the whole point! It's an adventure game. - IronSabbathPriest

It doesn't matter if you have a map, you still don't know where to go until you run around like a idiot. - Chaotixhero

That kind of is the point...

IT'S A ADVENTURE GAME! - venomouskillingmachine

3 It Rip Off Mega Man

People are idiots, Stupid

The first metroid game actually came out before the first mega man game! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Megaman came out AFTER Metroid

Mega man is level based metroid is open based

4 Metroid Prime Series

I don't mind it. It's pretty cool except for one... big problem. IT RIP OFF Call of Duty! - Chaotixhero

Metroid Prime is the worst Metroid series ever!

It is a Zelda rip off because exploration!

Metroid prime is NOTHING like Call of Duty. besides
Metroid Prime release date: 2002
Call of Duty release date: 2003
So um, no NOT a Call of Duty rip-off

5 It Was Made by Nintendo

Nintendo is one of the best video game companies

Nintendo is cool because they made the Zelda series which is my favorite series of all time!

So! Both Metroid and Nintendo are awesome! - IronSabbathPriest

Wait... Really? I'm sorry but you cannot expect me that Nintendo made a game like this and made Mario so childish and so stereotype like? Screw you Nintendo! - Chaotixhero

6 Zero Suit Samus

First, you complain about Nintendo being childish. And now you complain about them making a sexy character... Really? - nintendofan126

Wow now hold up! She looks so... WOW. Nintendo you realize she is in Super Smash Bros which is a kids game! They made her look like A... Never mind. - Chaotixhero

Samus is sexy and she know it. - Chaotixhero

7 The Voice Acting

Every single Metroid game has terrible voice acting. - Chaotixhero

Who ever said every single Metroid game has terrible voice acting is an idiot since only a few do. And except for other m, it's done well too

In Metroid: Other M, some characters sound like robots thanks to the terrible voice acting. - Chaotixhero

Alex is fat

8 Metroid Pinball

Metroid pinball is great. I can understand why some people might dislike it, but to call it the worst game ever? Really? - IronSabbathPriest

Sega made sonic, pinball. - nintendofan126

Metroid Pinball? Worst game ever! It a joke - Chaotixhero

9 Metroid: Zero Mission

Nintendo needs to either convert the ROM-hack "Super Zero Mission" into a real game or just remake/redesign Super Metroid. NOW. - xandermartin98

A remake on the first game... Wow. - Chaotixhero

Well, Super Zero Mission is actually secretly the best 2D Metroid of all time and shows strong potential to become one of the best games of all time if its annoying Shinespark puzzles and primitive Super Metroid limitations were removed.

10 Metroid Prime Is the Only Good Metroid Game Ever.

No it's not. Metroid Prime ECHOES is just as good as the first. - IronSabbathPriest

NO IT'S NOT ALL METROID GAMES ARE AWESOME! - venomouskillingmachine

Super Metroid (and Phazon, Eris, Super Zero Mission, Z-Factor, etc.)
Hyper Metroid
Metroid Prime 2 and 3
Metroid: Zero Mission
Metroid Fusion
Prime Hunters
Prime Pinball
Metroid 1 and 2

Need I say more? - xandermartin98

The Contenders

11 No New Metroid Game Yet

Thanks Obam- I mean, Other M

Go play AM2R to fill in the void

then track down some Super Metroid hacks

Just saying - xandermartin98

12 Several of Super Metroid's ROM hacks are vastly superior to the actual game overall

The whole point of ROMHACKS is to add something to a game that couldn't previously had been done, due to technical limitations.

13 Every Metroid game lacks Mario

This is just stupid now.

Because its not a Mario game! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Zelda has Mario when you look through the window in the castle courtyard. Why not Metroid?!

Is this REALLY a complaint!
Metroid Prime:
+ Immersive gameplay - No Mario
+ Awesome Graphics
+ Great Story
+ Amazing Soundtrack

14 Samus is a Ridiculously Overpowered Character
15 The music is extremely overpraised

(cough, Super Metroid Brinstar for example, cough) - xandermartin98

16 Too Difficult

Overall, most Metroid games are too EASY, actually.

17 No TV Series or Anime
18 No Archie Metroid comics
19 It isn't even Nintendo's best selling shooter

Duck Hunt, Link's Crossbow Training.

Lol. Just Googled it. Link's Crossbow training actually did sell a lot more than any Metroid game!
