Favorite Nintendo Game: Super Metroid

This month we’re celebrating Nintendo on Virtual Bastion! In honor of Nintendo’s 130th birthday, each week we’ll be covering different Nintendo-related topics, the first one of which was favorite game. And my pick was…well…do you really need to ask? It’s Super Metroid, of course!


In thinking about choosing my most favorite Nintendo game, I tried to come up with reasons to NOT pick Super Metroid.

Super Metroid didn’t immediately affect the gaming world as much as, say, Super Mario Bros. 3.

Super Metroid didn’t outdo more popular franchise titles in its release year (1994), like, say, Final Fantasy VI.

Super Metroid didn’t hold any wonderment behind its name, unlike with, say, The Legend of Zelda.

You get the idea.

    • I hope you enjoy it! I swear that Super Metroid just gets better and better every time I play it, but that’s probably just me.😜 Meanwhile, I’ve not played Samus Returns, so maybe I should get on that.

  1. Glad it’s not just me. It’s one of my favorites, as well. I enjoyed watching my husband play it many, many years ago. I played, but he is more skilled so I liked watching his gameplay. We still have it. Maybe we should get it back out.

    • While I can’t recommend it enough, I will say that it is not without its share of frustrating moments. Still, between the graphics, gameplay, and music, it’s a very satisfying experience. Hope you enjoy it when you get around to it!
