Yeah, and IMNSHO it makes all other GAMES seem weak by comparison; it cannot be over rated.

But back to platformers (although Super Metroid is not strictly a platformer; but rather in a class of which only IT belongs), I'm struggling to think of ANY platformer that even comes close to it, on ANY system for sheer "legendariness".

Super Mario World is a genuine contender, as is Castlevania: SOTN.

Other games like Gunstar Heroes, Mega Man and Metal Slug are simplistic in concept compared to the afore mentioned three.
