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.

  1. 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.

  2. Wind Waker has been loved for most of the time it’s been out you fucking mongoloid. The only backlash was the initial graphics change. Everyone loved it when they actually played it.

    You’d know that if you weren’t a zoomer ding-dong BUTTHEAD.

    • 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Other M is a fun game with a terrible fucking story and atrocious treatment of Samus.
    >The baby
    I actually am more mad about the getting scared of Ridley, thing.
    Oh, and the MB thing…
    Again, fun game, absolutely dogshit story.

      What the fuck were they thinking? How could somebody look at that and not raise any fucking questions? Also you forgot the part where Samu cooks herself inside of her suit cause daddy Adam didn’t give her permission to activate the fucking heat resistance function of the fucking suit she was already wearing.
      I wish they remade the whole thing.

      • 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.

    • I’ve seen the VA’s work and she isn’t bad at all, she was just given shitty direction from a non native English speaker. The few times she does emote in the game she does a good job at least imo

  5. Reminder that the examples of "bad" games OP mentioned were universally enjoyed by people who were actually in the target demographic and the majority of complainers were too old for them and should have moved on.

  6. Considering the amount of people that think Harley Quinn and Joker is a positive relationship I can see the same people thinking Samus’ relationship with captain "don’t use your radiation shields" is a highlight

  7. people have never stopped shitting on sunshine. on the other hand wind waker was only hated by a loud minority that only cares about muh graffix, and who has probably moved on by now to only consoom ps4 games

    Already happened. There are retards who unironically nostalgiahomosexualging for brown 7h gen shit like gta 4 or bf3

  9. I haven’t played it but it doesn’t sound too bad to me on paper. Having seen the Ridley and Nightmare designs they look awful though. GF Samus looks great. Probably won’t ever look at that time period again though because of association with this game.

  10. I fucking LOVE Skyward Sword
    I adore Wind Waker
    I like Sunshine
    Other M is not that bad, it’s enjoyable. Not an instant classic like every other game in the series except for maybe Samus Returns but still not as bad as everyone says it is

  11. It’s not a classic and never will be. However it is a good game which which had the misfortune to be buried under a ton of hyperbolic bile because everyone’s favourite space bounty hunter lady got turned into a subservient wimp with a stick up her ass.

    fucking retard, people always loved these games
    the whole nintendo cycle is a tired meme that died with skyward sword

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. i don’t like wind waker or sunshine much either relative to the wii ones myself op but at least they’re actual games. it’s like calling fucking sonic 06 a "diamond in the rough".

  16. I have more respect for the snoys who think the last of us 2 is the best tps ever made than for the misshapen sewer dwelling creatures who think other m is a good game

    It’s not exclusive to them, that’s why shit like Sonic 06 is now underated because it had sooooo much potential and the story ‘isn’t too bad’ or whatever bullshit because some drooling retard kid had the misfortune to grow up with it.

  18. Other M was always good, you retard. It was just Metroid "fans" shitting on it because they got filtered by a Wii remote.

    Also Federation Force is great with friends (which metroidhomosexuals don’t have so they shit on it)

    Wasn’t Wind Waker generally well-recieved back then, and the only people who didn’t like it were a bunch of autists upset about the artstyle?

    Reply
    • 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.

    • With at least multiple references to Metroid Dread dragging it through the mud. Expect quotes such as
      >misunderstood
      >cinematic
      >too ambitious
      >anger at Nintendo for letting the “man babies” win
      >And references to modern AAA trash

  20. Fuck off scrote, 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.

    The game is 11 fucking years old, anon. It would have happened by now.

  22. I mean it wasn’t THAT bad. The story was pretty cool and the 2d/3d thing was handled way better than something like Super Paper Mario.

    • 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.
