Metroidlogo

 Metroid is one of my all time favorite video game franchises. The franchise consists of 11 game, the first one being released in the year 1986. It is science-fiction/action & adventure and follows main character Samus Aran who is a bounty hunter. Her main enemies are the Space Pirates who are constantly trying to harness the energy of metroids (jellyfish-like creatures) into a power source. The reason this franchise is my favorite is because it combines platforming with exploring, puzzle-solving, shooting enemies, acquiring power ups, all in giant nonlinear areas. It was one of the first games to provide backtracking, which made things tough. Some games provide maps and some games require you to explore the area for yourself. Either way, you must acquire power ups and defeat certain enemies in order to move on. So even though it does not some like it sometimes, there definitely is an reason to it all and a method to the madness. Unlike the Mario franchise or the Zelda franchise, the mood is much darker. It is also one of Nintendo’s most financially and critically successful franchises.
