Your arguments here are bizzare, Orpheus.

You argue that Prime "bombed" in Japan (it's known that first person games are not popular), but use the total sales (even though they skew in Prime's favor) to make an argument for Super Metroid?

And storywise... I mean, none of the Metroid's are particularly focused on telling you a story. In some ways, Metroid 2 (with the subsequent material) and Metroid Fusion are the best of the bunch, but even if then it's a very secondary aspect of the game. It's not even like Prime swung and missed, it didn't even bother outside of the scannable documents.

I just flat think Prime is the better, deeper more atmospheric game.
