Is Metroid Too Difficult for Modern Gamers?

"y cant metroid crawl?" - A Miiverse post from a bedraggled Wii U owner after playing the initial stages of Super Metroid on the Wii U Virtual Console.

It's really a matter of gamers having had their hand held too much with current gen games, when playing an old school gem like Super Metroid it's important to adapt to the game and what it expects from you instead of expecting to be told what to do.

If you're stuck then either you haven't searched the area enough, or you are lacking a certain power up, it's usually never anymore complex than that beyond a frustratingly tough boss fight.

The entire way you play differs greatly from most current gen games, you're thrown into a strange world that you yourself must explore with the only real direction being that of a point on world the map, making progress at 1st is either done through trial and error or dumb luck, however once you become acquainted with the game mechanics and realise that progress usually stems finding new Items or Suite power ups and often back tracking between areas, then the game becomes very straight forward, not easy mind you but it helps if you approach the game as it was intended to be played instead of expecting glowing arrows to guide you.

I literally told 20+ gamers on the Miiverse to hold the run button to get over the noob bridge in Super Metroid. Young gamers now do not have the patience or persistence to figure it out for themselves because of there short inferior attention spans.

It's like any new game you play for the first time, you learn the controls and your find. It's no difficult than any other game.

Maybe if they weren't such a moron and first realized the character isn't Metroid but Samus, and second, looked around and found the Morph Ball it wouldn't be such an issue !!!
