I've never played the first 2 (Metroid and Metroid 2: Return of Samus) on their original systems. After defeating Zero Mission (recreation of Metroid, with an extra at the end) I got to play it (never beaten). I suddenly had an urge to play through my games in order.
I first Played Zero Mission, which I was able to complete in about 3 hours, with about 90% of the pickups. I got bored quick, and I moved on.
I looked at the time-line, and the next game I had was Metroid Prime. I played it again, and found it enjoyable. Not as enjoyable as Echoes. That was just plain fun. I then played Corruption. I loved it all over again... the falling, fighting the hunters, going to the Homeworld, and Phaaze... God..
Luckily, I had used my Wii's Shop Channel when I bought it to get Super Metroid (3). I had messed up big time. I tried walkthroughs, but my GameCube Game Controller doesn't extend up to my comp, which is about 10 feet away. So, I'm stuck.
Metroid 4, or, Metroid Fusion, is another game like Zero. Speedy. But, its pretty straightforward, so there wasn't a chance of Sequence Breaking...
