Which fanbase is worse?
>>
Zelda is filled with gurl gamers and the like, easily them.
>>
Metroid because they complain about Federation Force so hard.
>>
>>323924126
This, never seen the Zelda fanbase savagely attack one of their own games.
At worst they have the CD-i games and everyone can gather round and have a good chuckle at them.
>>
>>323924250
The difference is the zelda series consistently gets new decent games

meanwhile metroid got other M and then federation force

They're both filled with whiny manchildren

>He doesn't remember Wind Waker's release

Years later it gets the respect it deserves, but on launch, it was just a bunch of "ZELDA IS NOT FOR KIDS, WHAT THE FUCK NINTENDO"

Not as bad as it is with Metroid, but the Zelda cycle is real
>>
>>323924250
that's because zelda is already balls deep in spinoffs and zelda has a regular schedule for new games

metroid has no spinoffs and hasn't had a metroid game since the abortion of other M. The only real spinoff was pinball and that's just pinball with metroid slapped on it.

metroid fans are justifiably upset that the only metroid game in 6 years is a spinoff that has almost nothing to do with metroid except in name.

Zelda spinoffs have a plethora of characters that can be used (and are used) and a shitload of games to take material and inspiration from. That's why Hyrule Warriors works so well.

Metroid has Samus and giant monster bosses

it's just not made for spinoffs
>>
>>323923641
Zelda's
>>
>>323925227
nope.

It's the same logic as thinking /v/ is one person. You think the fanbase is one person.

As new games come out, they invariably look worse than previous games, so fans of the last game to get shit on come out of the woodwork to talk shit and praise the last game

also, the amount of fanboys for skyward sword is a direct contradiction to the zelda cycle, and skyward sword is SHIT
>>
>>323925081
Now imagine the shitstorm if WW was revealed in the age of social media.
>>
>>323925517
>metroid has no spinoffs
The entire Prime sub-series is a collection of spinoffs.
There was even a pinball game in there.
Federation Force fits right in.

Prime is not a spinoff, and I already mentioned pinball, which came out in 2005 alongside a trilogy and a GBA game

The problem with federation force is it's the ONLY metroid game in the last 6 years, especially since the last good metroid game came out in 2007, almost 9 years ago.

The first metroid game in half a decade is a spinoff? you bet your ass people are upset

Are you really trying to defend backtracking through the entire game just to open a door leading to an area with 3 rooms and a final boss?

Face it, the Chozo Artifacts shouldn't exist, the game would be much better if you could just access the impact crater after defeating the Omega Pirate.

>>323930224
Why didn't you just find them as you go? There are only one or two that you need the phazon suit for.

Complaining about Chozo artifacts is the easiest way to out yourself as someone who played through the entire game following the hint system. Everyone else found them as they went because they were actually exploring instead of following an arrow on their map.

This anon gets it. Zelda fans get their mouths fed pretty well, but Metroid fans are kept starved for years and years so is it really any wonder that they are a bit salty in this sub and elsewhere too? You just can't compare their situation, but I'd say that Metroid fans are still surprisingly chill considering all the shit they have gone through.
>>
>>323931360
Scanning through a guide for 30 seconds will tell you otherwise. Why would you decide to lie on the internet?
>>
>>323931141
Not really, you can't get that many of them until you return back with some item from much later area. For example there would be no way than someone would get the one in Phendrana pirate tower without explicitly going for the artifact itself.
>>
>>323931141
Or maybe, just maybe having to find keys that have have no use until the final 30 minutes of the game is bad game design and is the most compelling reason to quit the exploration based game after the Omega Pirate.

You've already seen everything worth exploring in the game, no use retreading the whole map just to see an additional 3 rooms that makes up the impact crater.
>>
>>323931640
I think we're chill because most of us agree on the relative quality of each game in the franchise being above a certain point

zelda fans (there's always overlap, one can be chill with metroid and volatile with zelda) by comparison are more volatile, rating one game with highest regards and the next with the lowest which is due mostly in part from the number of games in the zelda franchise and their variations and eras (ds zeldas are very different from 3d console zeldas are very different from pre-3d console zeldas)

metroid fans argue about which is best between super and prime (and sometimes zero/fusion), but in general opinions are less varied, again due to the small number of games in the franchise

We sling less shit at eachother generally

Zeldfags, first of all they don't know what they want and then there is question of of timelinefags: first you spend all your time trying to make up a completely unnecessary timeline to Zelda games and now that Nintendo actually gives you one all you do is complaining about it. Is it just because it didn't match YOUR PERSONAL fan-fiction timeline or are you guys just retarded?
>>
>>323931390
im 29 and bought it when it came out, just never was interested by it

The graphics are charming, but by the middle of the first dungeon it feels like a chore just to play it. Absolutely loved OoT and Majoras though.
>>
>>323931660
Unless you're sequence breaking on the 1.0 gamecube disc. The only 4 thats' on the way you can get are 2 in the beginning of magma caverns and near the elevator to phendr ana drifts , one in the room in phazon mines that is guarded by a mutates space pirate that you need to power bomb, and one in the room you get the X ray visor in.

There is 2 in the Chozo ruins that you can get earlier but there's no point in getting them because you still need to go back once you get the plasma beam
>>
I'd probably go with Metroid if I had to but only because Nintendo has reduced them to either sad monsters lashing out at the world because their series has been abandoned by god or zero suit fetishists.

>Metroid fans are all either dead or quietly accepting their fate.

Or bitching about ZSS fanart, or shitting on everything from Fusion onwards, or arguing endlessly about what Other M did wrong, or engaging in the surpreme battle of futility that is Superfags vs. Primefags. The Metroid fanbase most certainly has its vices.

Metroidfags are just starved motherfuckers who want a new game after the Other M disaster. Only reason why they're upset is because Nintendo has abandoned the series.

Meanwhile, Zeldafags are entitled brats who whine about their yearly meals like there's no tomorrow. They get games left and right and bitch about them, demanding more and more.

Zelda games, even spin-off ones always have Link as the playable character, because he is one of the defining characters of the series. when people hear LoZ they think Link, Zelda, and Ganon.

likewise when people hear Metroid they think Samus, especially because she's pretty much the only prominent character in the series. Mother Brain and Ridley are important reoccurring characters to but they aren't given much if any characterization at all. Samus doesn't get a whole lot of it either but at least she does get some no matter how stupid and OOC they can be (i.e. Other M).

however, FF is a spin-off game that does NOT feature Samus as a playable character. plus Zelda games are released quite regularly while Metroid fans have to wait for years, only to get a not-Samus game. it's not hard to see why Metroid fans are pissed off at Nintendo honestly.

also for my opinion on the thread's question, Zelda fans without a doubt. they are mostly nostalgia suckers that will eat up anything Zelda-related. and like most of the annoying fanbases out there, they don't take any criticism of their games and will shit on you if you dare say that you find a Zelda game less than perfect.

To be fair it's kinda in a grey area. Metroid's no Zelda or Mario but it's not a no-name series either. It's probably right below Kirby or something. It's occasional slip into hibernation also doesn't do it many favors.

Not necessarily a fanbase perse, but the best group of people to talk to are people who enjoyed sixth gen stuff. PS2, GC, OG Xbox etc
The thing about that generation is it had so many strange, niche, experimental titles that almost nobody played, so whenever something like the PS2 comes up people tend to have very varied favourites and speak of them fondly and with a lot of passion.
Leads to some of the most fun conversations to be had about video games.
I always end up getting recommended something I've never heard of before, trying it out and loving it.
Even /v/ threads about it are really fun and friendly.

What you're describing is (what's left of) the Halo fanbase. RIP that series, Halo 2/3 were the best FPS's period.
>>
>>323935912

My theory on the Zelda Cycle is that all the people who like the game at launch are busy playing it while everyone who hates it (and it happens because almost every Zelda fan has different tastes) is bitching about it. By the time the next one rolls around all the people that liked it are done with it and look back on it fondly and some of the people who disliked it maybe even warmed up to it with time, so you see more positivity after a while.

Coincidentally, the exact opposite happened to ALBW - everyone adored it on release but opinions became much more divided as time went on. Never really understood how that one broke the pattern but whatever.
