Now this took a long time. I finally beat Super Metroid for the very first time. Damn, I can still remember my first try, which I actually described in one of my very first C-Blogs. Why does it always take me so long to do that stuff? So anyway, here are some thoughts I got while playing the game!
It's also interesting to see, how climatic this game is without using text or a proper narration per se. This game is a rare example of videogame-exclusive storytelling mechanisms. This makes the end boss fight so much more interesting. It immediately made me forget the beginning of Other M, because that game did not achieve the same effect with it's shiny super awesome CGI graphics.
I had some problems with bosses and sometimes the difficulty got to me, but nothing I couldn't handle in the end. Somehow I feel like I should play it again soon, which is a testament to the quality of the game. I certainly don't feel like a wasted my time as with many other games and I am happy to have closed that hole in my overall gameplay experience.
