I got into Metroid Prime when it was released, and am now deeply engrossed in the series. I am wondering if (when ninty releases one of them) I should buy Metroid from the NES/SNES/(was there one for 64?). Were they good games? Did they take a while to beat? Im obviously not expecting anything like 20 hours, but I was just wondering what you people that have played them thought of them. Obviously it wasnt too bad because it had already made a name for itself before prime. ALSO: Can someone PLEASE pm me if/when ninty releases the first metroid game. I dont check the Shop Channel or this part of the forums often, so it would be greatly appreciated. ANOTHER ALSO: Could someone please list all of the metroid games and what system they were on, just so I know how many there are and what the chances are that ninty will release one? Thanks. Thanks again everyone.
