4. Metroid: Zero Mission – GameBoy Advance 2004
Every industry should take note of this game: tv, film, games, whoever. This is how you do a remake. Zero Mission is a breathtaking remaster of the original 1986 game, and is nothing but faithful to that entry while also understanding what kind of game it needs to be in order to create an enjoyable experience for new and old players. Plus, just when you think you’ve completed the game by wiping out Mother Brain and the Metroids, an added epilogue is put in for good measure, as Samus’ ship is struck down by space pirates and is forced to escape their occupation of the Chozo Ruins with only her Zero Suit and a stun gun. I don’t think a Metroid fan could ever feel more God-tier powerful playing a videogame than the final sequence of Zero Mission escaping Zebes and the Space Pirate ship.
