If you're counting the game's original Japanese release, it's Super Metroid's 20th birthday today!

And what good times they were. Game-Art-HQ has put on another one of it tributes, with art featuring the likes of Ridley, Mother Brain, Crocomire, and other familiar faces.
I can't spend the rest of today playing Super Metroid without Hamza or Dale finding out, can I?
