Gamers. They Don’t Make Them Like They Used To.(Super Metroid Miiverse Reaction)

So as I type this,  Super Metroid is available for the amazingly low price of only $.30 on the Wii U. Not only can you play one of the best Super Nintendo games of all time for basically nothing ,you can also play on the touch pad if the television is being used by someone else. Have a WiiU? Get this NOW !

So anyways,  I fired up this classic, but before I played I decided to check out the Miiverse just for shits and giggles. Wow was I shocked at the number of cries for help and the announcements of “how hard” this game is by the community. It’s both hilarious and a little discouraging to see so many newer gamers stuck on such a great classic game. They are declaring it “too hard to play”, even “the hardest game ever” !  The truth is I’ve been having nearly as much fun going through the Miiverse as I have replaying this great ,challenging and fun old school Nintendo game. I have to REALLY bite my “virtual tong” and not respond to some of the very silly comments like “what do I do when I turn into a ball “? , “How do I fit into this small hole?” and all the ” Hardest game ever!” comments.  Because , I fear if I DO respond I’ll be banned off the Nintendo network for more than a little while.





I guess they just don’t make them like they used to. Seriously.  It’s funny looking at the reactions of some of these young gamers who are used to Luigi appearing and playing the game FOR THEM if it gets hard. While I understand that some of these posters might be six-year-olds on daddies WiiU, I still can’t help but feel that the young gamers of today are spoiled out of the fun of learning how to beat a game, always having their virtual hands held the entire time. It is not that we don’t all need some help, upon occasion, but when someone post about being stuck in Super Metroid in an area that I know is only 5 mins into the game, it makes me both laugh and cry at the same time!  Anyways, here are a few of the post I am talking about below.  They just don’t make them like they used to.  Please noobs, for the love of God, TRY the game before you ask how to get past the 4 min mark of it?

    Honestly the first time I played Super Metroid, which mind you was when I was 15 or so, I was pretty confused about what to do after you pick up the Morph Ball as well. To access the ability to turn into the morph ball, you have to equip it first. Now the game doesn't prompt you to do this or tells you there's an extra step at all, or even that there is an equipping button. You also never have to access the menu to equip it ever again as well. I knew that I had to go into ball form to go in that little hole, but I had no idea how to make the morph ball show up. Equipping that dumb thing was probably the most complicated part of that game.

      But , did you figure it out all by your self and without Luigi popping up on the screen and playing the game for you " until you are ready" like in NSMBU?

    I had the same morph ball issue with the game boy version. Mostly because I didn't know you could do it until I found out by accident.

  3. PatMan says:

    It has been a while , but as I remember ,both games had instruction manuals which show how to morph using the controller.
