At least this is my point of view, which might sound to you as cynical as you want.Well, it is generally seen as the definitive Metroid. This shouldn't be news to anyone. Every Metroid game is compared to Super Metroid. I don't think it's the best myself, but it is the game that put Metroid on the map, the game almost everyone remembers when they think of Metroid. Just read any review of any Metroid game, and you'll almost certainly see its mention.Metroid Prime was a good series, but very much a different series. From what I've seen so far, I don't really see the connection between Other M and Super Metroid either, though. Sounds more and more like Fusion in 3D... though I liked Fusion, too. You really can't compare a game without item collection to Super Metroid. It's like comparing a game without jumping to Mario. Come on, friends, To the bear arcades again.
