This is the darkest nintendo game.

    I'd argue games like Famicom Detective Club 1 + 2 are darker due to being more serious, story driven games about gruesome murders.

    Reading all their journals is great too. And the Luminoth are like the Chozo but weaker and barely more tangible. Good game

    Only like the first 10 minutes. Once you learn the reason the feds died and get some context from U-Mos it becomes pretty standard Meatrid stuff.

      If you think about it, that scene where the GF troopers get swarmed early in the game and it's viewed through the computer is reminiscent of the flood scene from Halo CE

      Yeah, the matte black and greys contrasting with the neon colors makes the games stand out and look good to this day

      That place was so cool. I liked that the skybox texture, as low res as it was, was still detailed enough to give the impression that the Luminoth tech city stretched out for miles.
      I wish the gamecube could've handled the sense of scale better to further visually emphasize just how much the Luminoth had their asses kicked.

      They were the last time Nintendo was ambitious and trying to compete with the other big names of the industry. They're completely complacent nowadays.

        so he says, 5 years after nintendo dropped one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time and one that influenced practically every open-world game going forward, and 8 months before nintendo drops its long-awaited sequel

          Am I supposed to be impressed? Five years was the duration of the entire Metroid golden age.

      It's not hard but I legit thought the grapple guardian was fucking glitched. I still don't know If I killed it the right way.

        I think what confuses a lot of people with him is the fact that he needs to maintain an arbitrary minimum distance from the pylons in the room, otherwise he just awkwardly headbutts in their direction and nothing happens, which was probably designed to discourage camping one side of his fight room. I've always considered Grapple Guardian one of the biggest offenders of the "gnarly design, pushover fight" issue.

        Legit teased us with a more nightmarish scenario with those mature Grenchler corpses in the starting zone and promptly tossed the idea aside.

      Honestly one of my favorite bosses in the trilogy. His is a fast-paced and actually challenging fight that always invokes a sense of fear in me no matter how many playthroughs I've completed.

      People always cite this as a sticking point but even on hard mode the broken pillars give you a shitton of health IIRC.

          This. People who only played it via the Trilogy have no idea how frustrating it was in the original game.

    the title screen of super metroid had this every time you turned on the game but with scientists, and with blood too

      And BSL (No blood but the 'puter confirms the death of the entire crew early on). It's pretty much a thing at this point.

    Metroid Fusion is unironically darker than Prime 2. Nobody in the station actually survives, and you encounter everyone's zombies' both the humans and creatures. Did The Thing enemy before Prime 2 and in a scarier way with SA-X

      Yeah I think that aspect gets overlooked with Fusion. Every time I see it discussed it's just Metroid purists complaining about how it's fairly linear. There is a lot to love about Fusion and that's an aspect I love about it

      Dark Samus seems to be a red herring though. I'm sure I'm just a dipshit and everyone on Earth figured out what it was before the reveal but for the longest time (Well until the pirate logs state it came before Samus did) it just comes off as the Ing version of Samus befitting the mirror universe of Light and Dark Aether.

    Pretty funny/ sad that as a dumb kid I was playing games like Metroid Prime 2, GTA:SA, Halo and assuming things would just continue to get better.
