Shinesparkers Poll: Your favorite Metroid game (2021)

Back to Features List

Earlier this year, Shinesparkers put together a poll to discover our readers favourite Metroid game. The results of the poll are now in! 705 votes were cast for 14 Metroid games between the original Metroid and Metroid: Samus Returns. Without further ado, here are the results!

Please note: At the time of gathering votes for the poll, Metroid Dread and Metroid Prime 4 had not released, so they were not included in our poll. The Metroid Prime Trilogy was included because we felt that it offered a different enough experience compared to its original versions (e.g. control, quality of life improvements, etc)

A huge thank you to everyone who voted. If your favourite game didn’t win, or if it didn’t receive the amount of votes you thought it might, please don’t be disheartened. This poll isn’t the final say on what is and isn’t the greatest Metroid title, and every video game made is a miracle, and each one should be celebrated.
