      Reminder due to the cycle of Nintendo games and zoomers. Expect Other M to become a “hidden classic” within the next year or so. Same shit happened with Wind Waker and Sunshine. They are going to try and hold up Other M as misunderstood.

        The gameplay was genuinely fun and the finisher moves on some enemies were very satisfying. It really is just the story that is frustrating. I think Nintendo understands at this point that Metroid games should exclusively be made by western devs from now on. Mercury Steam did a great job, Retro Studios did a phenomenal job, team ninja screwed up and that one korean studio meant to develop prime 4 screwed up so bad we never even got to see the game.

        I never thought the gameplay was bad, it was actually it’s strong point. The complaints were always about the story and Samus’s characterization into this meek Japanese housewife.

        Dread’s Samus is pretty much the anti-thesis of Other M’s Samus, a complete badass. It was basically a direct response to Other M’s criticism.

          The gameplay is braindead, there’s a dodge system with 0 thought put into it, a lack of joystick, a retarded first person mode that pins up to the ground and you can just heal to 100% at any point.

          It’s a fucking joke of an action game in every way imaginable and the fact the retards like you pretend the game’s "only" problem is the story. The story is the least of its problems.

          These are from those who didn’t play the game and just parroted what they heard.

          Other M’s moment to moment gameplay is far more frustrating then the occasional hilariously bad cutscene.

      Fuck off melanoid, Wind Waker and Sunshine at least has redeeming qualities like unique settings, artstyle and new gameplay ideas that set them apart in their series

      Other M has an inane fucking plot full of exposition that constantly interrupts your flow. Even if you disregard this, the shit level design and no new abilities make inferior to basically any other Metroid game. It fails as a Metroid game and its fucking worse as a lore/story entry.

        And that is why I absolutely expect this game to try and get the redemption arc. The tedious linear approach is far more in line with modern AAA sensibilities and I expect brain trusts to latch onto it as the only good Metroid

        Yeah, there was a huge backlash when it was first shown off, because 2002 was still very much Gen X Papa Roach tier aesthetic sensibilities for the gaming world, but anyone who wasn’t a waste of oxygen was won over when they actually played the game.
        The main valid criticism of the game was that a lot of content was cut due to time constraints, with the Triforce hunt being incredibly unenjoyable, especially since no blind player would rush to the 5k wallet immediately. If that isn’t why you hate the game, you should probably have a nice day.

      I genuinely think this game had potential, it could have been a fun action spinoff game with just a bit more polished gameplay. The story and the cutscenes should be completely deleted or rewritten into something decent, though.

      I’d argue against this, but then I remember how people suck Skyward Swords dick now due the remake, so I can see it happen if it gets a re-release that "fixes" the controller. Seeing how some people been "critiquing" the would 100% been on board Other M if not for the story and controller, and if the controller was fixed the contrarian ducks could just rant how PTSD humanized Samus or some shit and not liking it is what is actually misogynistic.

          It wasn’t a bad game but it was a dull GTA game

          It had repetitive missions (its biggest crime), dull side activities, no flying, controversial vehicle handling, and more!
          Many people compared it to the very forgettable Getaway series when it first launched because it dropped the goofy GTA stuff for a more grounded, realistic experience

        Zero is deserving of its criticism, but its not the abomination some people claim it is. I wouldn’t mind it getting a Deluxe port on Switch with big improvements, but I’d much rather see a new Star Fox game altogether.

          Same. I don’t consider Other M to be the same level of disappointment as Star fox zero. With star fox zero it had hints of a great game but had its bad elements hinder its full potential. A deluxe port can definitely fix a lot of what was bad about the game while also keeping true to the original title.

          Other M I consider as fundamentally flawed since story aside, the environments are uninspiring, the combat and gamelan while looking neat is fairly oversimplific since you’d just be dodge rolling then unleashing a charge shot most of the time, collectibles and exploration is perhaps the worst in the series to date, and the music besides a few remixes isn’t anything special.

          The suit stupidity was just a retarded way of trying create a new excuse for the same old Metroid shit. Samus loses all her shit AGAIN, so you’re gated! The problem with stories is that devs keep trying to make us pay more attention to them, but it’s only exposing the age old issue of most dev teams not being able to write to a decent narrative to save their lives.

      Other M was a step in the right direction in terms of gameplay. Although playing with a sideways wiimote was a terrible idea, turning “2D Metroid” into a Ninja Gaiden esque action game makes sense. It’s thanks to the reception of this game that we’re stuck with Dread-likes forever.

        Speak for yourself bro, I still hate the Wind Waker Toon Shit Style. Don’t like sailing and the re-release didn’t fix the game. It’s simply a very boring Zelda game that’s also too easy which is saying something because OoT was easy, so having Wind Waker be easier is just annoying.

        Every word the truth. I remember being a kid and not being interested in WW at all because the artstyle was whack.
        I got the Zelda collectors edition disk with my GC and loved that to finally get to play OoT and MM after my parents wouldn’t let me get a 64, eventually I played the WW demo and it was fun af. I got WW on sale and loved it.
        The game itself is through and through a Zelda game and after people got to play it, it was well liked. It still got hit by Zelda cycle, but most of that was directed at the artstyle. It’s a classic now.

      Disagree. I know people say that story does not matter in gaming, but Other M’s story still has Adam who is frankly Nintendo’s MOST UNLIKABLE CHARACTER EVER.

      And the kicker? Nintendo’s intention is that we should see Adam as likable and even admirable. The man in cold blood like a sociopath murdered his own brother. They didn’t even show him hating that his family died, or even try to justify why he gave the order to have his brother killed. So we have to assume the worst about the character that he’s a horrible evil man and Samus’ worship of this bastard only makes him more annoying. So I disagree, no one will ever think of Other M as misunderstood because Adam is THAT unlikable also I think Dread made a huge mistake in bringing back Adam yet again. If Metroid is to continue as a series they need to forever drop Adam. He is shit.

      Other M in it’s original form was good and I’m not going to act like it isn’t. you will learn this soon enough and apologize to Sakamoto

        It already (kind of) happened:
        https://youtube.com/watch?v=KTuMfsWwd0E

        I just got this video recommended as well, it mostly focuses on how botched the localization was, and yeah the change in story beats and dialogue can be pretty stark.

        Something I thought was that even if the story was botched by the translation, that was kind of a big oversight on Sakamoto’s part, being that

        > Japanese can be notoriously hard to translate faithfully
        > The story is a huge element of the game AND the biggest market for the franchise is the english-speaking world, so you’d think he would try to work closely with the localization team to make sure it checked out

        It’s still a bad game at the end of the day, but I do wonder how general opinions on the game would’ve changed had the story and characters remained the same across regions. Probably not much.

          I think he did work closely but somehow a lot of subtlety was missed. Samus’s character went from rebellious and childish (which overcoming was the core theme of the story in general) in the japanese version to suck up adam obsessed in the localization. as well as adam going from reasonable and mysterious to aggressively authoritarian. I feel like the infamous ridley scene would have made so much more sense if Samus’s character and themes were still consistent but the damage is done. I think it’ll take some time for people to see it in a better light now that the new translation is out there. but it’s still pretty dumb regardless.

      The game is underrated as hell and it’s only hated because of the fucktard script and because it uses horizontal wii remote

      Release that shit on a proper system with proper controls, add a goddamn fucking dodge button instead of that auto dodge shit because you’ll always be using the pdad unless you’re in 1st person mode and there, you’ve got a good game

      Would have happened by now. Hasn’t happened. Isn’t going to happen. Sunshine and Wind Waker had detractors at release, but quickly won most of them over. More Mario 64 and an art style that still holds up are far better than whatever Other M offers. If anything Dread highlights all the missed potential Other M possessed. I think of Super Metroid was as prominent then as it is now (closed the show for GDQ for how many years?) I think the level of movement people were looking for would have influenced Other M.

      There is a decent game buried underneath Other M, but it’s like they made every possible terrible decision they could that compounds into an incredibly mediocre to downright shitty at times game.

      Insisting on NES controls makes the game braindead. Pixel hunting was garbage. Slowly walking with the over-the-shoulder camera wasn’t fun. The whole game was incredibly linear and having your power-ups enabled for you makes you feel like a child.

      It’s a shame too because Samus is acrobatic as fuck and feels great. I’m glad Dread manages to make Samus feel good to use, but unfortunately Other M basically killed any hope for a 3D Metroid that isn’t Prime.

        Sunshine is good so long as you do absolutely nothing that isn’t strictly required for beating the game. Blue coins, postgame and secrets are average to horrible.

      This plus Sakamoto going full Lucas with the story and, for some bizarre, absolutely fucking random reason, decided to kill the joystick for a 3D action game just for this esoteric idea of being a NES+ game or whatever the fuck he was on about.

      Also, no Keiji Yamamoto doing the score. We just got some generic composer that did boring anime shit.

        Just why exactly did he feel a game like other m had to be made in the first place? Why not make it 2D or have the story be something else and placed anywhere else besides between super and fusion?

          >have the story be something else
          I mean, the question of ‘why isn’t it just good’ isn’t something you can answer. I’m sure people thought it was good when they were proof-reading, it for some reason. I don’t know why they chose that particular timeframe, I don’t think there was any deeper thought to it other than ‘this seems like a nice spot in the timeline.’
          According to an interview Sakamoto had with IGN, the reasoning behind the story in particular was because he felt that many players had developed their own ideas of what Samus’ character was after Prime and he wanted to release a game that would clarify it and make her ‘consistent for future titles.’ He essentially wanted to write the definitive Samus that all games afterward would align with. And to be fair to the man, he character is consistent to what we saw in the canon manga (to the point where it straight up steals her having a panic attack upon seeing Ridley,) but the issue is that Samus was fourteen in the manga, and in her late twenties in Other M, so keeping her the same makes no sense.
          Making it 3d was just an extenstion of that; of Sakamoto wanting to connect the games to the Prime series playerbase that he wanted to sell the character to.

        >Sunshine
        It is a good game, but it’s more of a spinoff than a main series game. You stay most of the game shooting water at things, sliding around and hovering rather than just jumping around. The lack of a long jump completely fucks the game.

        >Wind Waker
        Nah, this one was always average at most. The challenge is completely nonexistent, you waste hours just sailing around the literally empty map, there’s no underwater sections even though 90% of the map is fucking water, the triforce hunt is an absolute waste of fucking time, it only has a handful of dungeons and fucking 2 of them are entire escort missions. It’s a charming game, sure, but it still is one of the worst games in the franchise.

        It was there to make Samus think Adam and Anthony were bad guys.

      As bad as Other M was, I still don’t think that a story driven Metroid game is that bad of an idea; and I kind of resent that the game basically killed any chance of us ever getting a good one. The Metroid universe has a handful of unique elements that I wouldn’t be against looking at further. With this and Federation Force, Metroid has kind of been locked into its role of ‘pure Metroidvania.’ Which isn’t bad, of course, Dread showed us that Metroid works best as a pure Metroidvania, carried solely by its gameplay (big surprise) and if every game matches that quality, I’ll buy every one, but there’s always going to be a part of me that wonders what could have been. If we could have had the best of both worlds.

      This is probably unpopular but I actually liked the concept of a more story based Metroid game. There’s a lot of untapped potential (galactic federation, chozo, aliens) that doesn’t get explained often. Plus Samus getting some development beyond a space warrior was nice to see. Too bad the game’s writing is terrible though, it could’ve been decent.
