I think Halo is better because I have always had trouble with Metroid Prime and all Metroid games.

Having trouble with something does not make it better. I had heaps of trouble with Ninja Gaiden, and flew through Totally Sweet Ninja Game! very easily, but Ninja Gaident wins

Bad Example, i know

How could you hate the story line!? That is one of the things I love about Metroid! This barely noticeable(misspelled) story line is what keeps you going!

I'm with nightmare975. The Metroid storyline is incredible. It's extremely understated, but it's designed so well...like a strong foundation on which to build a mansion of the imagination, a mansion fit for the J of Js!

Metroid.

As far as hard FPS's go, the honor of best is reserved for Half-Life.

Play them, cheater =p

Or maybe GameFAQs has something about it, lemme check...

...well, as I figured, they have an ending FAQ, and I'm sure you can check a FAQ from each game to read the Introduction that's included in the games instruction manual. That'll give you the entire story.

Here's a link to Metroid for NES, which includes the Metroid Endings FAQ.

If you'd like a list of the Metroid games that exist, here:

Metroid - NES
Metroid II: Return of Samus - GameBoy
Metroid III: Super Metroid - SNES
Metroid IV: Metroid Fusion - GBA
Metroid Prime - GCN
Metroid Prime II: Echoes - GCN
Metroid: Zerio Mission - GBA (a remake for the first Metroid, and a kick-ass one at that)

Have fun.

As you can see, everyone is stupid. I've bought Panzer Dragoon Orta and MGS2 Substance on Xbox (the stupid box and booklet was in dutch) but now my friend said I should've bought Beyond Good and Evil or Shenmue 2 instead of MGS2! What is your opinion?

I've got Shenmu 2 on Dreamcast...It's bleh...Too much Sim, not enough action...I guess if you're into that sort of thing it's ok...I never did get to the freight loader races...*shrugs*

I know nothing of any of the other games.

Metroid IMO is better, and i like the idea of metroid prime(u dont have to aim well to survive). The first time i saw Halo i thought another one of these shooters...but the multiplayer in halo is far better than the one in metroid prime 2(let's wait for hunters).
Maybe you don't see a deep story ingame(cept fusion), but if u know most of them, you will understand the deepness of the story(and no, it isn't like emergency call, go to planet, kill all enemys).
