Metroid: Better as a sidescroller or FPS?

For Metroid fans, do you prefer the sidescrollers like the originals or the FPS ones like the Prime Series?

Sidescrollers rule, plus, the prime version just didn't hold my attention well.

Prime is awesome, but it's not really a FPS to begin with


sidescrollers are the "real" way to play Metroid though

FPA, baby.

And I disagree with the whole "real" way to play Metroid. To me, Metroid is all about isolation and environment, things that are better represented through a first-person perspective. The only reason I went with sidescrollers is because moving around and controlling Samus is so much easier, especially with things like the Space Jump.

I love both, the series period is just awesome. I like the combat style of Prime but the sidescrolling has some nolstagia for me.

How can it possibly have any nostalgia for you, when Prime was the first game you'd ever played in the series? And if I'm not mistaken, the only game you've played.

I prefer Metroid as a sidescroller.
