Just like our previous top games post we did covering the 2010s, this list was compiled using the aggregate review site Metacritic which I do for a couple of reasons.

How to play every 2D Metroid game before Metroid Dread comes out

When Nintendo announced at E3 2021, it came as a surprise. And now it's coming out in October -- just months after the original NES game's 35th anniversary. Nintendo took the announcement as an opportunity to celebrate the franchise's long history on Twitter, ticking off a list of each 2D Metroid game. It was a nice walk through video game history, but it was also a little weird.

Other games were included in the list but offered no hints from Nintendo on how to play them, or if they're even available to purchase.
