I don't game a lot anymore but I feel like pic related is kind of the perfect video game (this is not nostalgia, as I didn't play it until I was in college). It's comfy and thrilling, familiar and dangerous.

I have a shit-ton of nostalgia for games I played in college. More than I have for games I played in my childhood tbqh.
I'm almost 40.
No nostalgia bias here, either, the game deserves to be as popular as it is.
i played it for the first time a couple years ago and it's easily one of the coolest games i've ever played. what makes super metroid so special is a balance of production value, mastery of the craft, and an unwavering, unshakeable faith in the player's faculties and decision making skill to an extent that modern games simply cannot replicate (due to said high production values)

where, the game is quite easy
It's too easy and has terrible controls, as well as questionable level designs. Wholeheartedly disagree.
As someone that prefers the way the GBA games control, I still think you are being a peak contrarian gay for calling Super Metroid's controls terrible.
Yeah it's a good contender for GOAT. Only Doom and OOT share the same status.
And easy as piss.
How easy is piss?
Pretty easy, unless you have like a kidney stone or something.
Kidney Stones are truly the ̶D̶a̶r̶k̶ ̶S̶o̶u̶l̶s̶ King's Field of pissing

> This conversation in a nutshell
I lost interest when I got to the wrecked ship. It went from being a cool exploratory game with lots of neat tricks to pull off to just being Zelda.
The feeling of being a little better at it every time I pick it up to play it is great. I take it as a good sign when a game naturally develops a dedicated speedrunning community.
Overrated Nintendo bloat. Anyone who considered this the GOAT has never played ewj on Genesis.
Earthworm Jim is not the same sort of experience, but Mega Drive games such as Alien Soldier, Generations Lost, and Skeleton Krew mog any Metroid game, easily.
