I had mentioned in a previous blog posting that Samus Aran is my all-time favorite videogame heroine. All time. Higher than Jade, higher than Terra Branford…even that horrible freaking Other M game could not stop me from loving the character and from loving Metroid as a whole, because OTHER M NEVER HAPPENED DO YOU FREAKING HEAR ME? IT NEVER HAPPENED!!
As a game series, it has pretty much been a formula that likely made me fall in love with the latter Castlevania series as a result of it ripping of the design. As a story, it never really got itself too deep but was a great enough story and setup that I was compelled to play through every game in the series. As a character, though, Samus Aran is where it really came together for me.
