never played them, so went and made an option for that, for I am sure that there are others like me who haven't. I'd play it if it was somehow ported to PC though, but that's never going to happen.

Wait, you have a Wii right ? Get the GameCube discs, the 1st and 2nd ones are cheap now, since they're greatest hits, or whatever Nintendo calls them.

Me too. I recently bought a PS2, that's how modern I am in my gaming. When GC-emulation catches up I'll probably check them out.

Actually, better yet, they are going to be releasing Wii-makes with 'enhanced' graphics (well the Pikmin wiimake is anyway) as well as wiimote controls. I presume they will be bargin priced.

I won't play them for the simple fact that I don't play FPS games on console do to the inferior controls

That is why the Wiimakes would be nice...Metroid Prime 3 controls great (easily better than the analog sticks), I assume controls would be similar to MP3 for Wiimakes of Metroid Prime 1 and 2.

Ah, it's because you're not good enough with the controls. I love them, both with the controller and the Wii-mote. I felt I had complete control on Samus while playing. It's fun to play and never need to watch on which button you're pressing.

After Sony PlayStation came out after Super Nintendo, I stopped playing anything Nintendo after that. I never been a big fan of N64, GameCube, even Wii - nor that I learned or got comfortable with the controllers each console had. I choose the fourth, sorry.

I'll give any Metroid a chance, when I get a chance. But verily, I never had much of an opportunity to do anything with a game-cube. If I've had distrust for modern consoles in general, I wouldn't single out Nintendo for inspiring it. For the most part I've had no idea what any of those xcubestation bozos have been doing.
