The Metroid series is without a doubt, one of my absolute favorite franchises in all of gaming. It’s a shame that there hasn’t been any new, great games as of late, but the series remains one of my personal favorites. The feeling of exploration, of traversing an unknown, strange world, and the feeling of growth you experience as you gradually add to your arsenal of weapons and tools, all blends so well in the series as a whole.
That being said, every game in the series brings something new to the table. It’s a new experience every time, with new weapons, new alien environments, and a new story to learn. Metroid has been a series with consistently quality games, and it’s honestly been hard to pick out my favorites. But, of course, I do have my favorites- some games that just stand above the rest.
