You need to calm down about Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Take a deep breath, and leave Metroid Prime: Federation Force alone.

Take a deep breath, drink a glass of water, it is going to be okay.

Look, I get it. We are all disappointed that we aren’t getting a traditional main-series Metroid game. That doesn’t mean that we should be setting the town on fire and looting our local electronics store.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force has been, unsurprisingly, unpopular. It is, in the words of Dr. Evil, “the Diet Coke” of Metroid: it’s not quite Metroid enough. But a petition? I mean come on guys, let’s all calm down.

Just because we don’t get what we want shouldn’t mean we hate what we have. 

I haven’t played Federation Force, and until I do I will reserve judgment. You should too.

Fallout Shelter is nothing like Fallout 4 and the world continues to turn.

And while we wait for a truly new Metroid game, we have countless other titles to choose from. And not just AAA games like Fallout 4 or Star Wars Battlefront, but really good Metroidvania games.

Try Axiom Verge, or even the Dark Souls series. These are games that are really great Metroidvania games. No, Samus isn’t in these games, but then again Metroid isn’t really about story or character. It’s about tough battles, exploration, and perfecting your reflexes.

I mean, we know what happens when we get story/voice acting in Metroid.

So what is there to complain about? The game is in the Metroid franchise? That may be lame to some, but Fallout Shelter is nothing like Fallout 4 and the world continues to turn.

By the way, I’m quite sure a lot of you who are complaining haven’t even played every Metroid game. I know I haven’t.

Go to the backlog, I know I would love to go back and play Metroid Fusion since I missed out on it. 

In conclusion: You will not be getting a new “true” Metroid game. Not this year, and in all honesty probably not next year either.

I’m disappointed too, but we have Star Fox Zero, Super Mario Maker, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Zelda Wii U and other Nintendo titles to look forward to. 

So let’s take a step back and stop bashing a game that we haven’t even played just because a new, traditional Metroid game is not on its way.
