Why Wait For Samus? Seven Metroid-Like Games To Play Now

Gameinformer:
"One of the biggest disappointments coming out of E3 was the lack of any Nintendo news regarding the company's popular Metroid series. Thankfully, gamers no longer have to rely on Nintendo to scratch that itch. Over the years there have been a number of great releases that have emulated Metroid's exploration-based gameplay in a variety of original ways. Here are some of the best non-Metroid, Metroid-like games that any fan of the series should make a point of adding to their gaming catalog. " (3DS, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Cave Story, Guacamelee, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Strider, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Yeah sure there are great games that use the same formula, but it's the atmosphere I love most about Metroid.

I've never been more immersed in a video game than while playing Metroid Prime. The music, atmosphere, locations, enemies etc. were amazing. Come on Nintendo I want to experience that again!

I've been borrowing the trilogy for Wii ever since I got the Wii U but I haven't once played it... I really need to change that. All I ever hear is how great those games were. Gotta be better than Other M which was really lacking IMO.

there are 2 metroid games in development .. one of them 2D other is ..who knows, but big chance it's gonna be like Prime ..

Great games, but we really need a new Metroid too, lol.

Not making a 2D Metroid on the 3DS is really a missed opportunity. I would imagine that it wouldn't take much money to make, but at the same time would sell well and sell systems. It would also be perfect to tide over people until an actual console Metroid game comes out.

Nintendo stop releasing 30 new marios every year. We want metroid!

Nintendo generally only release 2-3 Mario games a year, and they are their best selling titles. Why would they want to stop?

Metroid sells no where near as high as their other games.

Maybe it don't sell well because no one wants that metroid prime series. I rather have a 2d metroid any day over a first person shooter

Strider like Metroid ? da hell O_o
Pro_TactX  +   192d ago
The new Strider shares many similarities with Metroid.
masterfox  +   192d ago
I'm just running like crazy slicing whatever is on my path and advancing pretty easily, theres no need to search for secret locations to advance, no way I was able to do that in Super Metroid ;)

I think I'll just wait for more Samus, thanks GameInformer.
