The Metroid Franchise - Which Are Worth Playing/Buying?

If you find yourself hankering for a little metroidvania action after the reveal of Metroid Dread but aren't sure what's worth checking out, Jean-Luc's got you covered.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of Metroid, the loveable bounty hunting, genre defining, child that Nintendo loves to forget about. Except to everyone’s surprise Nintendo did remember this year and are celebrating with Metroid 5, aka Metroid Dread, the first brand new 2D Metroid game in quite a long time.

So long in fact that there is a whole generation of people that have never experienced just how good classic Metroid is, and are looking at all the excitement Dread is causing, and they’re curious.

For this video, Jean-luc details the best Nintendo approved options available for you. Unfortunately that means buying a Wii U.
