Filtered Thoughts
     If you have not seen any footage of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, below is a brief video for the game.  SPOILER Warning – the video does show a few bosses from the game, though only briefly:

     Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is one of my favorite Wii games.  As I have mentioned before, I purchased the game and finished it four complete times, unlocking everything I possibly could in the game.  When I found out Metroid Prime: Trilogy was being released, I traded-in Corruption, and eventually purchased Metroid Prime: Trilogy when it was on sale at Best Buy.
     I think the reported game-play hours for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption are great, especially considering it is only a single-player focused game, and I think Corruption’s one million hours increased over just the last year shows Wii owners are still playing it.

     I think it’s a shame though, that Nintendo has allowed Wii games like Metroid Prime 3: Corruption to become hard to find, instead of releasing them as “Nintendo Selects” titles years ago.  Nintendo has been adding more Wii games to their “Nintendo Selects” lineup of games, but none of Samus’ Wii adventures have made the selection yet.  I think Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, or Metroid Prime: Trilogy, would make a great addition to the Nintendo Selects titles, and allow new Wii owners the opportunity to try the game(s).
     If you have not played Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, but are perhaps interested in it, you can read my full review and thoughts for the game HERE.

     Have any of you played Metroid Prime 3: Corruption in the last year, and if so, what did you think about it?
     Also, do you think Nintendo should add Metroid Prime 3: Corruption or Metroid Prime: Trilogy to the Nintendo Selects lineup before this coming holiday season?
