I don't want cut scenes in my Metroid games. Reminds me too much of Final Fantasy. Metroid should be about gameplay and exploration, not sappy boring backstory.

THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE EMOTIONAL NINTENDO GAMES.
because Nintendo made the mistake of having someone who isn't a writer, write, just because they helped make the series, or because you are unable to understand terms like "show, don't tell"? (which again, made the latter parts better, Ridley's dead no dialogue for that IRRC, same with the 2nd ending right before the escape)

You kidding? I love this game. Writer or not, I found it entertaining, so keep your opinions to yourself.

The original poster is just laughable, cause throwing away a game after the third cutscene is pretty much like throwing away a song after the third chord.
In his defense, Metroid: Other M is about half over by the end of the third cutscene.
I am very critical when I spot sexism in videogames, but to me Other M doesn't look like a sexist game and Samus' persona isn't pictured in a sexist way. She actually looks like a very real and breathing character...in a way that male videogame characters rarely are. Honestly, I thought that Other M pushed the envelope about the psychological themes that can be covered in videogames.
Aspects of Metroid: Other M would have to be considered sexist. The gender balance is way off. Notice how all the men in this game are consummate professionals and all the women are emotional Gok piles? Whether or not anyone cares is another matter.
Samus is definitely not inexperienced in this game. This is chronologically the latest game in the series, so everything you've seen her do in the previous games she's already done. She's killed Ridley countless times, she's saved dozens of planets, and killed lord knows how many aliens. Her behavior in this game is completely inconsistent with her history.
Samus truly is a veteran at this point, and like many real life veterans Nintendo has decided Samus should suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I guess that's what happens when your whole life is pirate death and space jumping. Now Samus has petrifying flash backs when you least expect them. I can completely understand Metroid fans hating this new aspect of Samus, but it was something I liked about Other M. The Ridley cutscene was alright, but I wish they would have taken it to the next level and incorporated it into the gameplay. It would have been so crazy if you were shooting pirates then suddenly lose control of Samus as she doubled over screaming.
...in my pants.

Can we please just let this die? Some people out there (like me) enjoyed the game and while it did have it's flaws, it's very frustrating for fans of the series as a whole to see all of the negative hype it's accrued based on a few overly emotional cutscenes. It makes me fear for the future of Metroid; don't be surprised if we don't see a new game till 2016 or later now.

@Mully: I, too, wish that this pointless debate would just die off, but clearly people just can't agree to disagree. Some loved this game and some hated it, let's just leave it at that. I'm sure the next game in the series will most likely play it safe, since that's what always happens after Nintendo releases an experimental game, only to have the "fans" toss it back in their faces...
@pixelman: Other M is the latest game in the series to be released, but it isn't the latest in the timeline, that would be Metroid Fusion...
"Don't make enemies, they'll stab your heart; don't make friends, they'll stab your back. Including me, including you, all men are trash. Don't love; don't be loved. Have nothing to do with other; live in isolation."

yeah, any problems this game may have caused are kinda made void by Fusion anyway.

@Gamesake: I guess I can live with that. It would've been nice if the game emphasized that (hell I don't even think it mentioned it), but oh well. It's not like the game was well-made or anything. :3
@Straw: Oh right, for some reason I had it in my head that Fusion was right before Other M, but it's the other way around. D'oh. Still, all of the other games in the series precede it chronologically... Which are a lot.
@kkslider: Yeah, I'm hoping Nintendo will forget Other M and future Metroid games will be after Fusion. :3

Why can't we all complain about Prime Trilogy...or Donkey Kong Country Returns? xD
Seriously, you people are still blabbering about the game's flaws or how "terrible" it is?

I salute anyone who has managed to get through this entire game without going insane from boredom...I mean I really am trying to get into this game. I've never had the chance to play a metroid game before this one I'm at the Snow place and was just wondering, does the story become more i don't now, interesting?

Sorry bonesy91 the story is flat and boring the whole way through. And I'm sorry this was your first Metroid experience, it's the worst title to represent the series. You would've been much better off with the NES original. Or with my recommendation of Super Metroid, which I believe to be the best in the series. Both are available on VC. For me the 3D aspect completely ruins the original gameplay and feeling of exploration that the series was known for. If you want to try out a title for the first time, your most likely better off with the originals.

Sorry, but I will blame modernisations in the gaming world for destroying gameplay. Immersion no longer feels like an achievement, it's just more immersive. And as for nostalgia, it's one of the biggest reasons why games even get additional entries into their series.

No Wii U yet.... Not enough first party wow titles to pull me in yet... And Nintendo's got a ways to go to repair the damage done during the Wii generation.
