That's the question I asked myself after watching Nintendo of America's live-action TV ad for Metroid: Other M.
I'm probably not the right person to answer said question, though, as I'm not much of a Metroid fan these days. Actually, I shouldn't say I'm not a fan--I just haven't played a Metroid game since the glorious Super Metroid, and I don't see that changing with this sequel despite the fact that it seems to be taking the series back to its roots.
Who knows, though--maybe the ad above (or this 30-second version) will prompt me to change my mind before the game reaches North American store shelves on Aug. 31. (It'll be released everywhere else in the world the following week.)
