I just think people act silly about the story. It's a great narrative and a different look at the actual human side of a beloved character who seemed like a cyborg before they gave her a voice. I still hold strong to my opinion that in ten years, Other M will be an "underrated classic." But I'm not trying to start a flame war about the game. It just irritates me about all the hate it gets because it dared to have the hero be anything less than a gun-toting hellcat.

Then there's the secondary complaints: Too linear, clunky controls, and unmemorable bosses. Nintendo has established that linear works in portable games since Zero Mission and Fusion are two of the most beloved games of the series. The clunky controls would have been eliminated had Other M been a 3DS title. Slap a few more epic bosses on this baby and it would have made a great 3DS game IF you're willing to embrace and enjoy the dark and emotional story that comes with it like I did.

They may be two of the most beloved, but THE most beloved games almost always fall to Super Metroid and the Prime series with most people. And to say those aren't very open is more ignorant than most statements one could make about the game.

Nintendo - Where even first person shooters ooze creativity.

i think people have taken their dislike of Other M and turned it into hate. I don't know how you played the game but the controls were perfection for me. Also, while this is a matter of opinion, I loved the story. I have gone back and watched it all in theater mode several times with friends and even they enjoyed it. I honestly think that Samus showing she has a soul and is a human being is what pissed people off. i always saw her as a BAMF until i played this game. It was then i realized that, yes she is human, she has feelings, and that just added to the experience for me. It may have been linear, but i prefer linear games. I hope Nintendo continues with the storytelling in the future, and keep it emotional. I don't want Samus to be completely heartless, i want to relate to her as a human.

The game doesn't let you go anywhere besides where you're supposed to go next, and it doesn't involve any navigation or puzzles. Instead of exploring to find stuff, upgrades are just handed to you as soon as you need them to advance. You mash the D-pad to dodge, you mash the 1 button to shoot, and that's all there is to the combat. It's not Metroid, and it is without a doubt the worst game I've ever paid $50 for.

No, it's not. If it was, the same people would hate Fusion's story.

Fusion was a MUCH better game than Other M, on all accounts. When I first saw the trailer for Other M, I assumed it would be like Fusion in 3D. In some ways it was. The environments of Other M's Bottle Ship were very similar to Fusion's BSL ship, and both games also shared a few of the same bosses. That is where the similarities end, however.

Other M was full of hand-holding, linearity, terrible dialogue and voice acting, awful plot, poorly-designed characters, cumbersome controls, I could go on. The only redeeming factors were the post-credits exploration and the bosses (Phantoon, the Metroid Queen, and Nightmare specifically). And once again there was NO 3D KRAID!!!

that didn't piss me off. i think it is good to have samus showing emotion and feelings because as you rightly said, she is not a robot. she is a human being in that suit. what did piss people off was how she was portrayed. yes she should show feelings, emotion. some of it in other M was understandable, and yet sakamoto and team ninja went about portraying those feelings, emotions in an almost emo-ish way.

nonetheless, i wouldn't say it was sexist at all, like G4 have made it out to be.

I don't get why people think that's the issue in the first place. Fusion illustrates her personality better than Other M does, and no one complains about that.

This has gotten really off-topic, so I'll just say that I won't keep playing Metroid games if they're as shallow and mindless as Other M, and I'll leave it at that.

I am going to have to go back and play Fusion again and compare the story to that of Other M. I do agree with you that Other M is a little "mindless" with SenseMove and auto-aim.

Are Metroid discussions doomed to always revert back to Other M at some point? Haha...

Anyway on topic, I am looking forward to seeing what happens after Fusion. Though I would also be interested in playing as another bounty hunter in the Metroid Universe.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Totally, the story right after Fusion has massive potential. I know Nintendo likes to jump around with their timelines, but the last game chronologically has been a cliffhanger for nearly ten years. and I want more 2D Metroid D:

I think the answer is very clear. A metroid battlefront game should be in order. You could play as the space pirates or the galactic fedaraition. and there could also be space battles:)

I never thought about that before since I only have just played Fusion for the first time this year but yeah, the storyline has been on a ten year clifhanger! Nintendo will probably end up doing a prequel to Zero Mission though which I would be OK with if as long as it was a 2D Metroid.

I doubt there will ever be a prequel to the first game. It's been the first since the beginning, and it's supposedly Samus's first mission.

I still think we'll get Metroid Dread eventually.

Maybe they'll come out with a reality show based on Samus's life and how she went from a sissy girl to a beastly man through Adam's training and guidance. And how her bond with Anthony began. And it'll be on HBO.

And that will be your prequel to Metroid. So yeah.

Just for you.

a follow up to fusion should be the next game in the series, rather than prequels to metroid 2, prime series.

If that doesn't have you looking forward to what happens next I don't know what will.
"Defying" the Galatic Federation as well. That can't make it to easy on Samus'.

How about a new metroid that uses the game play of Other M, (add movement to 1rst person view) and continue the story from fusion. They could take out the complete emphasis on story and maybe add some horror aspects to the game. Not horror like dead space, but maybe something like a toned down Alien. Or even better, make a crossover with the franchise. What better than to have a crossover with the series that influenced Metroid?

Well, um... I like Burgers. Not much else to say.

^That's what I was thinking, especially since the last two games in the timeline show a darker, corrupt side of the Federation.

Only if they get rid of SenseMove, auto-aim, beam-stacking, and fixed camera angles.

...Yeah, Nightmare and Dark Samus are long gone, only enemy she has to worry about are the pirates and Ridley. (and I guess her rival, since the hidden video in Corruption had Sylux)

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.
