Harvilla nailed it with Metroid Prime. I actually just dusted the GameCube off a month ago, and tossed this game in to see if it held up for me. Long story short, it did, and then some. The end of Rob’s mini review described one of the most memorable moments I’ve experienced playing video games — The transition from the Magmoor Caverns to the Phendrana Drifts is truly beautiful — I will always remember how I felt experiencing that for the first time. As the game wore on, I always looked forward to returning to the Drifts, as well as the Tallon Overworld. It was a gorgeous game at the time, and perhaps the limitations of the time (2002) made it even more perfect — had the scenery been too sharp, maybe it wouldn’t have had that same dreamlike effect. What a game.
