MoarPowah's Kaushik discusses why Metroidvania style games are a prime example of excellent game design, and what other games can learn from them.
A few more greats not mentioned- Blaster master (nes and overdrive on wii) Outland Guacamelle Shadow planet Metroid 0 mission
They left out MegaMan ZX and it's sequel as well At least I liked it anyway
the upcoming axium verge looks amazing too also the snes aliens 3 game is sorta meetroidvania/mission based and was good based on my rose colored nostalgia glasses
This article reminds me New 2D Metroid Please
Would love an HD remake of symphony of the night or a sequel would be even better!
there are some good metroidvanias people should try Aliens (DS) Monsters Tale (DS) Shantae series I even liked new 3DS Castlevania :)
