1UP: Despite its positive debut, some fans speculate Metroid: Other M has killed the long-running series. But why?
I don't care what others thought about this game, it's awesome, despite too much drama..
Well, I totally don't share your opinion but will say that a lot of BS has been talked aboput Other M so far. Certainly, there's been a lot of misunderstanding and so on but for me the games should have been all the canon we needed and making Samus a more needy character just made all the other games seem less plausible and as a result I found the character she has in Other M a bit weedy and unconvincing. Also I didn't like the gameplay because of the ridiculous insistence on using just a Wiimote-awkward for awkward's own sake and adding it not through gameplay was a cheap shot-and then to add the pointer aiming? Seriously, that's a GOOD design choice for TN? But,whatever, we're all Metroid fans and we won't ever see Dread or similar if we can't, at some level, just agree to differ over Other M and offer Nintendo a fanbase they imagine will buy into another game. You loved it and I ,really, didn't but I think it's more important that we all agree all the other games were amazing and try to convince Nity that we'd be more than up for another Metroid game should they make it. A lot of teeth gnashing went on and I doubt it helped any-I realised pretty quick that it's unlikely someone is gonna be happy with EVERY game in a series just as I don't like EVERY good(considered to be good anyway)game out there to begin with. Best to forget what divided us all with Other M and go back to hoping for more unifying future releases.
It's probably far from dead , but dont go expecting a new metroid every two years . It's not even popular much in japan After all eons passed between super metroid and metroid prime
I thought the Prime trilogy was excellent, but I hope Team Ninja never touches the series again.
Other M was my favorite so far
highly doubt that this series is dead, you have to admire the risk nintendo took by giving samus a voice though. that is very huge for any nintendo game.
I liked all of them,.. Other M is a pretty great game,..(Yes the missile use with wiimote was a bit quirky, but I actually did not mind it,..(except pixel-hunting story moments) What bothered me a bit, was the story(and it was not horrible at all),.. and those resi4 walking slowly around moments,.. I know it is added to make it more suspenseful, but it did not ad much to the game,.. Otherwise the game is pretty damn tight and quite fun.
Metroid Other M was a great game but not without its flaws, Some fans love it and some fans hate it... Im kinda in the middle tbh. I would really like the next game to take a leap like Prime did and give us a brand new story and world to explore, And exploration should come back as a bigger focus next time, no more linear gameplay its not for Metriod imo.
I heard they got the gameplay right, but it was just the slow paste story, useless dialogue, and bad direction that made it an unsure tittle
Eww I love slow paste stories...they are always sticky and hold my attention.
u heard wrong the story was not slow paste if u ask me itt even played out stuff while u were playng so yea
so when metroid has a story u guys complain? it exsplain wut happen in supper metroid without u haveing to guess and she was younger rememer? and she looked up to that guy in other metroid u dont even no why shes there and doing like part one der was 2 sentence and yeah thats it same with part 2 atleast part 3 had some story ut other m actully had ppls speaking they rare talked in prime 3 just the other hunters and that genarila guy
Other M shows the change Samus went through as is consistent with what we see in Metroid Fusion. The fact that Other M takes place after the Prime trilogy and all other games except Fusion, I can't see how it ruins the plausibility of those games. Also, "desperately seeking male approval" is a phrase I hate when people talk about Other M. Seeking Adam's approval is not the same as seeking approval from a man. If anything, she already had that with Anthony.
This game was a masterpiece. I might be the only one that thinks this now, but wait 10 years... Then you will see
Agreed. This game is what bought my attention back to Metroid
other m was awesome, dam bandwagons are ruining metroid!
IMO other m is like the wind waker of the metroid series some people like, some people dont. but honestly i dont see why it is trashed like it is the game did what it was set out to do, though i think it could have improved a little bit, maybe a sequel :)
