I hope it's alright to post a thread about a Nintendo game

Anyway I prefer the Original Metroid series to the Prime series, it's 2Dness made it fun to navigate what ever ship you were trapped on. I love first person shooters but it's not a place Samus should have gone in my opinion and now with the trailer of Other M Samus is venturing further away from the her 2D roots that made it a joy to escort her through the Metroid infested levels.

you cant really tell which direction Samus will be going in Metroid M though. i mean being developed by Team Ninja who knows what tricks will be in this game. FPS elements, but potentially it'll play like Ninja Gaiden :)

i have to be brutally honest now i never played any 2D Metroid games other then the Gameboy Advance titles. i did really enjoy them of course, but i loved Metroid Prime 1 & 2...

not got around to getting 3 on the Wii yet, but think i'll get this...

I do think in Other M Samus Aran's combat style will be more realized but I would much rather another 2D Metroid game because it was fun no matter how many times I died and it's never fun to dye in a FPS

if you have not sat down to super metroid i beleive your doing yourself a disservice by not playing that game. Metroid prime 123 all played very well and same with fusion and zero but super metroid will always take the cake.
