Welcome to the first Past to Present for my VGSotD! I know that all I mainly post are recent songs, but I do that because going back to past consoles, although there may be classic songs, the quality isn’t so good. But I know these memorable songs need to be posted, so I’ve developed a new feature to cover that. Past to Present gives a musical sampling of a series, from its introduction, to the most recently released game. Let’s kick off the new series with some Metroid.
The Metroid series is legendary for being quite possibly the best series to mix action and platforming. The most recent game, Metroid Prime, is a first person shooter, but it retains the sense of exploration that the previous games enjoy. Certainly not as popular as Nintendo’s Mario or Zelda series, Metroid is still adored by countless fans, and, in my opinion, holds the best reason to own a Gamecube.
