The Metroid series, the creation of the late Nintendo visionary Gunpei Yokoi, is an extremely popular series of action/adventure games featuring 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.

Games These games appear in chronological order.

In the chronology of the fictional universe in which the Metroid games are set, the correct order for the games is as follows:

  • Metroid
  • Metroid Prime
  • Metroid II: Return of Samus
  • Super Metroid
  • Metroid Fusion

The music of the first game was composed by Hirokazu 'Hip' Tanaka.
