Ive recently been playing Metroid 2 and this game is pretty great
But what are some other good GB games?
Super Mario Land 2
Wario Land series
Final Fantasy Adventure
Ghosts 'n Goblins
It's the worst of the three Metroid games, for sure, but it's still easily one of the best GB games.
(I refuse to acknowledge anything after Super Metroid.)
It's by far the least bad of the post-Yokoi Metroids despite its clumsy control scheme, I'll give it that. I'd be willing to acknowledge that one as a well-done homage to the real Metroid games.
>The GBA games aren't bad.
Fusion is a decent enough game on its own, but as Metroid game it's awful. If they'd called it anything else, I wouldn't have nearly as much of a problem with it.
The good parts of Zero Mission are the parts from Metroid 1 they didn't mess with. Everything they added was a complete disaster.
Sadly, it's really obvious that no one at Nintendo actually remembers how to make a Metroid game anymore, especially after that one recent abomination that I refuse to even mention by name.
Fusion has too much dialogue (having to constantly check in with the computer is annoying), but the game still succeeds in giving the player cool environments to explore and nice bosses. I like that Zero Mission is more flexible, but I still liked Fusion more on the whole.
A few good gb/gb color games:
The very underrated Donkey Kong
Kirby's Dream Land
The Mega Man
All the pokémonz
Also, for the sidequest going on in this thread:
>super metroid > prime > metroid > metroid 2 > fusion > zero mission > all the rest that I have yet to play
Any Infogrames game
Daffy Duck Fowl Play
Joe & Mac
Kid Icarus Of Myths and Monsters
Ninja Gaiden Shadow
The Sword of Hope
The Sword of Hope II
>turning against it recently
This isn't new, kid. People have been railing against it from the beginning, because it's merely a FPS dressed up as a Metroid game.
Also, "explaining" that Samus lost all her upgrades because she got slammed into a wall really hard is fucking retarded, especially because instead of actually breaking, her suit just glows and morphs back into the plain version.
The polish and art direction were great, though.
It's just a glorified halo killer. Nintendo didn't have any fps games and wanted to try and say 'Hey guys we have shooty kill games too!'. But 1 analog stick doesn't compete with 2. The only thing that could stir my interest in a metroid game again would be 2.5d. It worked most effectively as jumping and shooting.
Not strictly /vr/ but this is decent Zelda Like
The aesthetics are much better than the Box art would imply
I played a lot of Kirby's Star Stacker and Pokemon RBY growing up. Both are tinted by nostalgia but at least okay to play in 2016. Link's Awakening DX (color version of original with minor changes otherwise) is probably the best game on the system. Almost as good as A Link to the Past. Amazing it showed up on the Game Boy, and blows Zelda 1's guess-and-check gameplay out of the water.
