I like both Metroid and Star Fox but I would have to go with Star Fox.

You don't like StarFox? I love that I personally think it's an awesome Sci-fi shooter. I guess having talking animals as its characters doesn't make it realistic enough but even with that I love it!

I thought Star Fox had plenty of momentum going into it's SNES debut. After that, it just started to fizzle out. It sort of seemed like it was searching for it's identity. Metroid on the other hand, has remained consistent in it's approach with the games and with it's main characters. I'll have to pick Metroid here.

These games own entirely separate genres. Star Fox isn't really a shooter, and neither is Metroid, when I think of it. It's like comparing Mario and Zelda games. Sure, they're both fantasy games, but they can't be compared.

What I like about these titles is that they both have a unique way of telling their stories, and that's what makes them both great. Overall, I think Metroid has the better story, but Star Fox is the better storyteller.

I choose Metroid simply because I like the Metroid universe more.

Yep op89x is right. This is like comparing Mario to Zelda. But anyways, I would go for Star Fox. Metroid doesnt catch my attention.
