With the recent release of Dread, it's time to look back on the history of Metroid and rank the best — and the worst.
GF365: "Metroid had a little vacation with the arrival of the Nintendo 64. Prior to the N64, it came out on SNES in 1994 in the form of Super Metroid, and then came out on GameCube as Metroid Prime in 2002. Almost 20 years after the release of Metroid Prime, a Mexican developer and N64 fanatic has taken on the task of creating an N64 version of Metroid. This 3D Metroidvania is called Metroid 64 and sees Samus with the classic graphics of this fifth-generation console."
