TVG: 2.24 – Metroid

Sketches of Samus Aran

With Metroid Dread’s release, it was inevitable that we took some time to discuss one of our favourite properties from the greaties. While Steve’s initial reaction to the nine minutes that he’s played of the latest Switch title is cold, the fact remains that Metroid is a franchise that we’ve both loved since playing it on the original Nintendo Entertainment System.

If you are looking for a good Metroid game, Steve’s ranking on the Franchise is as follows:

1. Metroid: Samus Returns (3DS)
2. Super Metroid (SNES)
3. Metroid II: Return of Samus (Gameboy)
4. Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA)
5. Metroid (NES)
6. Metroid Fusion (GBA)
7. Metroid Prime

All of the above get a bit of discussion in today’s episode of The Vagabond Gamecast.

The Vagabond Gamecast is a podcast by Stephen Tucker and Matthew Langille that covers gaming from the perspective of nomadic parents.
