Metroid: Other M (Wii) review
"An American soldier would have told Adam to stuff it."
It says a lot about a franchise that can carry the weight of a game as narrative and dramatically heavy as Other M. Is Samus over emotional? Dependent? Female? Could it be that Japanese attitudes toward women seasoned the plot with elements of emotional bondage that just weren’t going to play well in North America?
You are the fearless, perhaps intrepid, space bounty hunter Samus Aran. Your power suit enables you to fight on equal - and lets face it, usually superior - terms with the dangerous Space Pirates, who are commanded by Mother Brain, Ridley and Kraid. As their name suggests, when they’re not amassing wealth, they steal technology for use in their scheme of domination. The fearsome, parasitic Metroid are caught up in this scheme, as is Samus.

At some point you stop justifying what you play and begin to realize what you're learning by playing.
