    Metroid (along with Castlevenia) invented a game genre aptly called Metroidvania. It’s basically a 2D platformer/shooter where you’re going through these massive dungeons/landscapes that are all interconnected and you find new weapons and power ups to help you progress to new areas.

    It’s one of Nintendo’s flagship IPs. They also have 3D Metroid games that are 3D shooters

    I had the original Game Boy when I was a young kid and have skipped all of Nintendo's consoles until the Switch. Tbh, I o KY got that because if the reviews BOTW was getting (and completely justified). Everything else I just find too young and/or arcady. I'll check out this though to see if I like it.

    It’s actually sorta like zelda in a way cuz you need new weapons and power-ups to reach new places and defeat certain bosses. But different gameplay of course

    What types of games do you like besides zelda? I could prob recommend some if you’re interested!

    Monkeyball is a great party game everyone can play, I played the s--- outta the GameCube one with my cousins as a kid.

    You never played Metroid either?
