Trust in Play, "Axiom Verge gives those of us that haven’t experienced the metroidvania genre a chance to. I have never sat down with a Metroid game and I’m well aware that’s a huge part of gaming history I’m missing out on. Axiom Verge makes it so I’m able to experience those moments of going insane performing the same actions over and over. Fighting a boss where your strategy is simply jumping over a projectile and shooting the boss at the right angle. And repeating this as many times as possible until your senses give up and you die."
