Game On: Super Metroid


Shaun and Chris descend into the depths of Planet Zebes as they guide Samus through one of the greatest adventures of all-time: Super Metroid.

This is Part 1 of our full playthrough of the SNES classic. In this chapter: Ridley’s tail is the dominant species in the galaxy, Samus’ childhood friends attack her for no reason, and Shaun learns the value of friendship. We are taking on the entire game in this playthrough. No, not a 100% playthrough — Zero Suit Samus pretty much ruined any incentive to beat this game quickly.

Have a game you want to see us suffer through play next? Let us know in the comments or by sending us an email. Now that this is a series, we’ve created its own page, which you can see here. It’ll list all the games we’ve done so far and what might be coming next.

It’s time to bring peace back to the galaxy. Game on.

    1. You know, we’ve been toying with the idea of trying to do Game Ons through an online connection with other people. FF6 is a game where we don’t need precise timing and syncing everything up isn’t too bad. Might be something that works down the road…

  1. Oh you guys, this is so great. The sites the sounds, it all just brings a tear to my…shut up! I’m not — ! It’s just…a…something in my…eye…

    1. It’s ridiculous that I was the only person to vote for this in our Best Games Ever. This is easily an all-time great. Soundtrack, ambiance, gameplay, item choices…it has it all.
