"y can't metroid crawl" is the funniest thing I've heard all day. Holy shit.

Also, this is exactly why we don't get games designed like Super Metroid any more.

Zebes can be a bit obtuse at times, but I'm more amused by Pauly calling Samus "Metroid" than anything else. Not hating, I just find it cute. XD

This is fucking hilarious. It really goes to show that older games really needed more critical thinking and problem solving.

It's a good example of what going through a generation of hand holdings, ultra linear levels and constant tutorials can do.

Pretty sure some of you are laughing at little kids, like "y can't metroid crawl" kid. You should all be ashamed.

Oh this thread is going to go places. Wonderful places.

I love how one of them pauses to show frustration.

How do you open these .... DOORS!

It's not sad at all - it simply illustrates the difference between older, more challenging games that don't really give you any indication of whether you have the proper capability to go somewhere or not and newer games that guide and help you along the way.

Do they think that if they move to the left they will fall and die? I'm pretty sure Super Metroid has zero "fall to your death"s in the entire game.

Wait a few days until they get to the crumbling block bridge.

And then a week or so when they get to the Maridia tube (which is stupid bullshit)
