System: Super Nintendo

Released Date: April 18, 1994

Metroid is the lesser known franchise that often gets overshadowed by the likes of the Mario Bros. series, as well as the Legend of Zelda series. This saddens me, because in my opinion, Super Metroid easily belongs in the top 3 games of all-time. Basically, the main character is a bounty-hunter called Samus. Throughout the game, the player controls Samus, but doesn’t actually find out that she’s a female until she takes off her helmet. The plot is basically that Samus needs to kill an evil creature known as Mother Brain who controls evil creatures that take over a planet known as Zebes. Throughout the adventure title, Samus upgrades her power suit by defeating numerous bosses. As new items are acquired, Samus is able to explore new areas of the planet previously unreachable. The game features awesome music, gameplay, and most importantly, an epic storyline.
