One of my earliest and favorite games is Metroid for the Nintendo Entertainment System. In the longplay video embedded above by cubex55, you can follow along with Samus as she fights the Space Pirates who intend to use the Metroid species to take over the known worlds. The game is good side-scrolling adventure that has a good soundtrack and pace of action. There have been many other Metroid games, but the first is still my favorite.
