The Great Metroid Area Ranking: Surface of SR388 (Samus Returns) + Dairon + Brinstar (Zero Mission)

Welcome back to The Great Metroid Area Ranking, the Hunter-Tier Patreon exclusive show where I, Andy Spiteri, will be ranking every single area in the Metroid series! This month, I’m joined by staff contributor Griffen Olney to talk about three super solid, if unspectacular, areas: the remagined Brinstar from Zero Mission, home to Samus’s first foray into the world of Zebes, Metroids, and Space Pirates; the dark, industrial complex of Dairon from Metroid Dread, which houses arguably the most terrifying – and in-arguably the fastest – E.M.M.I.; and the Surface of SR38 from Samus Returns, a great area that you don’t spend nearly enough quality time with and home to one of the series’ finest boss battles!

Join the fun and consider signing up to Omega Metroid on Patreon to influence what areas get covered!
