The Metroid series, the creation of the late Nintendo visionary Gunpei
Yokoi, is an extremely popular series of action/adventure games featuring
female bounty hunter Samus Aran on her missions. The first Metroid game was
a completely new concept to most people, as it was totally nonlinear and
people could go where they wanted, when they wanted.
The creature Metroid is a small, cell-like creature that can siphon the life
energy out of any organism. It has 4 different stages: The first and most
familar stage, Alpha, then three others: Beta, Zeta, and Omega. In Metroid
Prime, two other forms were introduced: one kind had a long tentacle that it
could use to attack you from afar, and the other split into two when you
shot it, providing for quite a frustrating experience.
These games appear in chronological order.
* Metroid (1986 - NES / Famicom Disk System, and NES)
