Hi, pretty new to MHQ. My name is Sidiouth. I never knew about MHQ until I saw MDB plugging the marathon recently.
My first Metroid game was Prime 2, what a god tier choice I made at that random Gamestop.
My story such as it is, is that I come from a family of gamers, but I never played. The household favorite was Zelda. But I was too young to really be interested in playing it myself, I was content to watch. At some point I started playing games, but it bugged me that none of them were really mine. So I went to Gamestop, browsed the GC games and saw Prime 2. The booklet looked cool and I'd at least heard of Metroid through Melee. So I said whatever and bought it. When I got to the Boost Guardian and the game decided it was okay with crushing the hopes and dreams of 12 year old me, I went back out and bought Prime 1. I must have read that booklet 10 times on the car ride home. From then on I spent every waking moment on Wikitroid learning everything I could about the series. And the rest is history.
