I just wanted to go on a little rant because I'm angry at Nintendo for what they did to Samus' suitless appearance, specifically, her 3D appearances.
These are in order they were revealed.
Return of Samus:
Fusion (and Japanese version):
Say what you will about thinking videogame characters are attractive, being a pervert, etc., but you know as well as I do she's clearly supposed to be an attractive character. What I don't understand is why, after Retro created such a good look for her in Prime 1 they went back and changed to the much less realistic, (IMO) much less attractive look that you see in the rest of the games. She even looks better in Hunters than in Prime 2 or 3 or Brawl. Hunters looks like a cross between Prime 1 and the rest. My only possible explanation would be that by the end of development of Prime 2 Nintendo decided that they wanted her to look a certain way, and that's why her look has been that way in every subsequent game.
Your thoughts? Also, rankings. (Prime 1 > Hunters > Brawl > Prime 2 > Prime 3)
