Super Metroid looks to be the favorite Samus Aran adventure, something with which I wholeheartedly agree. Whenever friends would come over to play Nintendo way back in the day we'd always compete with Super Mario Kart and Kirby's Dream Course. Super Metroid never made the cut. Yes, it's a single-player adventure, but it wasn't uncommon for us to play single-player games as a team, e.g. one person at the controller and the other serving as "navigator" with a strategy guide. No, Super Metroid was mine and mine alone; I didn't want any help conquering the secrets within.
