Surprisingly enough, one of the internet’s most famous game critic, our beloved Yahtzee, doesn’t like Metroid: Other M. You however already know whether or not you’re a fan of the game, and if you don’t, welcome back to civilization. You might want to have a look at our own Metroid: Other M review as well if you are still in doubt about it, but ultimately you will have to play it yourself and form your own opinion.
This however isn’t your usual “slow news day random related post”. Rather than that, I would like to specifically address one criticism that Other M has been getting ever since the infamous G4 review – the sexualization of Samus. According to most negative reviews, the game does its best to show you Samus’ Zero Suit ass on every opportunity it gets. I consider myself a reasonable person attracted to hot, steaming female bodies and both I and my better portion have been left unimpressed by the amount of latex shown in the game. So, what do you think? Just how many times did you specifically notice Samus’ body in the cutscenes, and how many times did the game try to focus on it?
