Unpopular Metroid Opinions

Postby sith » 07.09.13 4:32pm

Here's two of mine:

1. Sakamoto no longer considers Zero Mission canon.

2. Mother Brain, Kraid, Ridley, and the Space Pirates have been working for the Federation (or both have been working for the same group and/or individual) all along.

Feel free to post your unpopular Metroid opinions in this thread.

I didn't like Phazon too much. It seemed like it was just everything. Highly radioactive, so it mutated everything to how it pleases. Can create living, sentient creatures out of inanimate objects. It had its own flora. In Prime 3 it showed it had its own Fauna as well. The force of the leviathan seed was able to split an entire planet into two alternate dimensions. And to top it off, it was a fricking planet.

Yeah, I dunno. I kinda hate a super substance that can just accomplish everything somehow :/

I agree about the dimension-splitting thing, because it makes no sense.

Saying whether you consider it canon is one thing, but I personally don't much like when someone claims to speak for someone else.

Metroid 2 is the most atmospheric game in the series.

The Metroid Prime Trilogy needed better movement and combat systems.

Other M was the product of desperate pandering, and it isn't the game anyone wanted to make.

Zero Mission should have been a DS game.

I want Gandrayda to get a spin-off.
:metroid: = Ultimate Warrior
8) = Ultimate Warrior
Therefore, 8) = :metroid:

Now you know why they call it Metroid.

I don't see why the idea that a game should have been on a newer console and/or handheld would be unpopular.

Yakuza is such a terrible and boring boss. Its attack patterns are so simplistic and silly looking that it literally made me question what the designers were trying to do with him. I'm surprised so many fans like him.

I don't like how Samus slowly went from "bounty hunter" to "planet destroying savior of the galaxy".

The dimension split was because of Aether's unstable planetary energy, I believe.

I'm completely opposite. The fact that it is essentially a super organism makes it seem far more threatening and unique. If it was just some radioactive substance, then what would be special about it?
At least in my opinion. But hey, different strokes for different folks, right?
I don't like how Samus slowly went from "bounty hunter" to "planet destroying savior of the galaxy".
Why can't she be both? A "Planet destroying bounty hunter who is a savior of the galaxy".

I think the Spider Guardian is a joke. Seriously, He's not that fucking hard.

Is this thread 'unpopular opinions' or 'crack fan theories'? Confused over here. :-?

:YS: projecting on to Samus.

Oh I can think of one person that wanted to make it...

Here's my guaranteed-replies opinion:

Zero Mission is slow-paced and padded out with boring filler. Nearly every 'new' thing added to the game bogs the game down in not-fun busywork.
must be some sorta side effect of the hatchling or maybe she should stop going down on Miyamoto.

Problem.. I think there's like... only one game she actually hunting some type of bounty? and that was hunters.

all the rest she's been effectively a mercenary.

People like Yakuza? I thought he was just kind of... there.

Metroid II has terrible physics.

I like the Light world/Dark World mechanic in Prime 2.
