Sailing the Blue Skies since 2001.
Super Metroid (SNES, Wii VC)
I played this game in the midst of the 3D era - around the time games like Super Smash Bros. Melee just came out and screens of Metroid Prime and Zelda: Wind Waker were stunning folks left and right. And you know what? Playing this game made me forget about anything else I had for my Gamecube. Taking the basic core of the NES classic and expanding on it in every way imaginable, this game is the pinnacle of 2D gameplay in my eyes. Full of legendary moments, top notch gameplay, awesome open-ended level design, some fantastic music and stunning SNES graphics, I had a blast experiencing this for the first time.
I am still not quite 100% yet, either...but I plan on doing a time run-through in the near future.
