After about an hour of debating, I have to choose Super Metroid. It's only the best game on the Super Nintendo.

They don't call it Super Metroid for nothing!

Super Metroid : 5
Metroid Prime : 7

My favorite game in my favorite series. Spent some time with it last night; it's definitely one of those games that I can replay over and over again! :D

That's not really fair since Metroid Prime was a trilogy and you can't just think of Metroid Prime without the other 2 especially since their stories intertwine. Super Metroid was amazing though I really liked it but I liked the Prime trilogy too.

...and Super Metroid was supposed to be the end of the Metroid trilogy as well.

@mamp, when it says Metroid Prime, it means Metroid Prime. As in the original game, not the trilogy :p

even compared to other recent series with continuing plotlines, Metroid Prime 1 (and arguably the sequels) can be played as stand alone games anyway. If anything, Metroid Prime is better that way as the sequels, while quite good, cannot get the perfection of the first Prime game.

Had I experienced Prime 1 with Wii pointer controls for the MP Trilogy on the Wii instead of the robotic & clunky analog controlled GCN version the experience would of been a complete night and day difference for me. As it stands, i had a love/hate relationship with the GCN version that's for sure. And for the millionth time, I haven't personally played Super yet, but I've experienced a few bits here and there including the beginning back during it's release when i watched my best bud give it a whirl. Amazing stuff no doubt. :D

Super Metroid seems to have so much charm due it's eye catching 16-bit visuals and basically everything else it has going on that i could never choose Metroid Prime over it. I don't even think it's fair to compare the 2D Metroids to the 3D ones to be honest! Anyways, I don't even have to play Super Metroid to pick the winner here. Watching those moments of Super Metroid eclipses my entire playthrough of Prime 1 on the Cube.

If Metroid for the NES was completely erased from your Mega memory you might not feel the same way! :p

I haven't participated in this until now, but this one was WAY too easy.

Metroid Prime. Duh.

Metroid Prime not only has very tight and exhilarating gameplay and a greater sense of discovery than I've found in any other videogame ever, it also demonstrates without a doubt the GREATEST story telling of any videogame that I've played before or since. It shows a full understanding of the interactive nature of the medium. Instead of pretending it's a movie and forcing you through cutscene after cutscene to experience the story, it realizes, "Hey, I'm a game. Let's let the player uncover the story." By hiding bits and pieces of the story into the game's world and letting players scan and discover what's happening on their own if they want to and to what extent they want to, it captures the full sense of player control, something very, very ,very few other games have done. Metroid Prime is a perfect game because unlike 99% of games made today, Metroid Prime KNOWS and EMBRACES the fact that it is a videogame.

Better than being constantly lost in the original. :P I don't see how you can find it boring. Did you find Super Metroid boring, too? I think you liked the first one, right? It's basically that game, but with more bosses, more direction, and all the improvements that Super Metroid made to the franchise, plus more improvements to the controls, and an intense stealth section and a new final boss. I don't see what could be so boring about it. Those not only put it far and away above the original, but I found the whole adventure to be more interesting and memorable than even Super Metroid.

Prime. That game is great.
Super Metroid is good too, but for me...I'm just not as into the 2D Metroids. I get lost and end up going into the same rooms over and over again, with no indications as to what to do next. That being said I love all the Zelda games, so I love to explore, but for some reason the 2D Metroids just don't pull me in as much.

I haven't beaten Super Metroid yet, but I have beaten Prime and I have to say it was amazing. I just really enjoyed the atmosphere and setting and I did play it on the Prime Trilogy so that makes it miles better.

But getting lost in the original, when you originally play it, is part of its charm! Ok, I know that nostalgia heavily influences my view on this. I feel like Metroid: Zero Mission is Metroid for Dummies and no, I am not saying anyone who really enjoys it is crash test dummy. :) I was not a fan of the Chozo telling any old bozo where to gozo. I can most certainly admit that the boss fights are significantly better than the originals method of just standing there and blast away with your missiles and hoping you have found enough. OK, so maybe I need to amend my “such a bore” statement a little bit. Overall, I somewhat enjoyed Zero Mission for what it was; an enhanced easy remake of an original video game classic for everyone and their mother. :P

Now Super Metroid is my 2nd favorite game of all time and I totally get absorbed into 16-bit Zebes! :D If Zero Mission was the “for Dummies” book to NES Metroid then Zero is the “Cliffs Notes” version of Super Metroid. Cliffs Notes as in it takes a lot of content from Super and cut’s it down to an easy to understand/play Metroid. Super seems more massive and at times leave me like “crapola, what do I do now” unlike Zero which, to me, feels that it has significantly less exploration.

Zero Mission is a really good game but at the same time it's more like a worse remake of Super Metroid made too easy or Metroid Fusion without the linear gameplay being remotely fitting or an interesting story.
