Super Metroid turns 25!

Happy 25th to a game so good it seems irrational that it exists! Hard to believe it's been so long, seems like it was just yesterday I was jamming to 'Blackhole Sun' by Soundgarden and bomb-jumping the tall-ass chute in red-soil Brinstar for the first time. 24 Mega-Bits!!!!

Hell yeah. Still one of my favorite games of all time.

We just posting music? Sounds good to me.

I never played this one too much but I plan to finish it when I have patience. I wonder what the odds are of this getting the Samus Returns treatment.

They could do the Link Between Worlds thing, or even mirror the map and I'd be happy. The original game functions so well, I'd be pretty non-plussed if they just gave it different art.

Yeah, a LBW treatment would be neat, but hopefully with a much better art style than what we got with that. It's probably the least visually appealing entry in the series outside of the NES games, imo.
