Mark Pacini, the director behind the Metroid Prime trilogy, believes that while the series was praised by the critics he still believes that the games “sucked.” Pacini admits that all he sees in his games are the bad things and he says that the same thing happened with regards to the Metroid Prime games. Pacini says the original Metroid Prime was the best designed game in the trilogy. Metroid Prime 3 is the most fun one to play, and Metroid Prime 2 is divisive. You either like it or you don’t. Here’s his thoughts on the well received trilogy.
“I think everything we do sucks. But that’s just me because I thought all the Prime games suck. At the end of the day all I see are all the bad things. Prime 2 was a blur to me. It was so quick, it was so fast. That thing just went out the door and it was a very divisive game. People either liked it or thought it sucked, and I can completely agree because I couldn’t tell you what that game was because it happened so quickly. Prime 1 was the best designed game. Prime 3 I feel is the most fun one to play. Prime 2 is divisive. You either like it or you don’t. That’s kind of the way I look at it.”
