 No.8499

Is this game about late-stage capitalism? Or does that matter?

 No.8500

Games are mental masturbation SAGE

 No.8502

Could Kraid be about the speculative bubbles in finance capital? They rise from the floor quickly but then must fall precipitously.

 No.8503

Is Crocomire a metaphor for capitalism? Living on the edge of disaster… only needing a slight nudge to fall backwards into a crisis.

Is Draygon's embrace like exploiting workers' labor? You can only squeeze them so hard until something cracks and they fight back, not unlike arcing an electric current into the boss from a damaged cannon. It's like a strike: it hurts the workers but it hurts the boss a whole lot more.

 No.8523

Ok, we get it, you really like Super Metroid

Now that I think about it, alienation IS a core theme in the metroid series.

 No.8767

Samus is literally a cop who primarily fights "space pirates" who appear to actually be one particular alien race.

 No.8769

>>8767
Ridley, Kraid, etc. don't appear to be the same race.

 No.8770

>>8767
I mean they killed her parents, they're bad hombres.

Also she's a bounty hunter not a cop, dunno if that's better or worse.

 No.8771

>>8767
She also wages a genocidal war against the native wildlife of Zebes, only to be outdone by the pirates themselves who blow up the entire planet just to get back at her.

 No.8818

What can we learn about the Spartacist Uprising from Super Metroid?

 No.8819

Samus redeemed herself in fusion

 No.8822

>>8770
They call her a bounty hunter but how often does she hunt bounties? It seems more often she's following missions given by the Galactic Federation.

>>8769
>mostly
If I kill a lot of one group it doesn't stop being a hate crime verging on genocide if I also sometimes kill other things.

>>8771
Planets tend to blow up any time she's around in general. Not a good look.

 No.8823

>>8819
By merging with melting cheese and becoming a helpless child who obeys the computer words of a daddy figure?

 No.8824

>>8819
Oh, and blowing up another entire planet by crashing a research station into it (not even sure how this possible, was the station made of antimatter)?

 No.8825

File: 1619295877942.jpg (231.07 KB, 900x1064, Super Metroid Dachora.jpg)

Saving Dachola and Etecoons is rather surprising when you think about it. No concern for the other inhabitants of Zebes, Samus?
