The Metroid franchise remains a keen source of interest for Nintendo fans and, to some extent, gamers in general. From its iconic NES début to the stand-out Super NES entry, it's a series that has enough lore and variety in style to keep conversations lively for a long time.
Retro Studios has played its own part with the Metroid Prime Trilogy, of course, three titles across GameCube and Wii that brought Samus into 3D environments and revolutionised the series. It's unsurprising, then, that the trilogy gets plenty of attention from those assessing the Metroid franchise.
One of the best efforts we've seen recently, however, is this visual feature from avclub.com; it's part of an "Empty Spaces" series "examining games' most fascinating realms of desolation". It blends some text with gorgeous illustrations, exploring these themes in one flowing feature.
