A Weird Kid�s Top 10 - Game Series I Never Get Tired of Playing


The idea of Metroid is basically the same for any iteration of the game you might have ever seen or played. The story is basically the same each time, Samus versus the Metroids and Space Pirates. Generally you start each game without any equipment at all (making the player wonder what happened between the last game and the one you�re currently playing to have her not come equipped with anything), and struggle your way through the game picking up equipment, power-ups, and health along the way.

The brilliant thing about Metroid is the simulated free-roam mechanic that makes you think that you can go anywhere and do anything you want, but the game hampers you just enough that you don�t notice the brick wall you hit. Once suitably powered up though, Samus has free reign over the planet and all that live there. Generally most Metroid games end the same each time, with the Metroids being vanquished and generally the whole planet blowing up.

My favorite of the whole series would have to be Super Metroid. The game is just stunning and completely immersing in the way that it is put together. There are very few games that I put up on such a high pedestal and if you have any doubts on whether this series is one of the best ever made, go out and play Metroid Prime or Super Metroid one more time just to be sure.

Well, this concludes yet another Weird Kid�s Top 10 list. I hope you all enjoyed reading it. I know for certain that there are many of you out there that will disagree with some of my choices for this list, but keep in mind that this is in no way a definitive listing nor is it meant to be taken seriously. Its all for fun, just enjoy reading and take something away with you or leave a comment if you so wish.

As always, please let me know if you have a particular Top 10 that you�d like to see, and I�d be happy to oblige. For all of my faithful fans that do submit ideas, I promise I�ll eventually get around to yours. Thank you again for reading. See you next time.

Hey robots, I'm Excremento, but you cool and old skool Dtoiders know that already. I've been a videogamer for as long as I can remember. I have well over 27 years of video game experience that I rely on daily, and a near encyclopedic memory of gaming starting with the Commodore 64 and ending with whatever is the current hotness.
