Metroid: Other M.People hate it for apparently going against established canon, but I love it because I see it as enforcing established canon. It helped to explain apparent inconsistencies from Fusion, such as how Ridley's body is somehow intact in cold storage despite him being blown into pieces in Super Metroid. It also acted as a love letter to the Metroid manga, with things like the design of Adam being lifted straight from it.Yes there's the whole freak out moment when Samus comes face to face with Ridley's clone, but I thought it made sense in context. Ridley survived past encounters with Samus either due to mechanical augmentation or his natural regenerative abilities, but she finally managed to kill him in Super Metroid. She even states in the beginning of Other M that she knows she finally killed him... And yet there he is alive and in front of her. I can understand that breaking her sense of reality. And at least here she got over her breakdown pretty quick, where as in the manga she needed a big group hug from the Chozo.The only thing I really frown on was the choice of VA for Samus. When I imagine her speaking, I picture someone like Tara Platt or Colleen Clinkenbeard who's able to portray a lot of strength while still able to get across a sense of inner sadness.
