Samus Aran was my favorite video game character as a kid, and probably not for the reasons you’re thinking of. Samus starred in Metroid Prime and it’s sequels, the games that literally defined my childhood. She’s smart, tenacious, and a complete and total badass. She greatly affected how it is that I view women today; though the two sexes may have different physical qualities and different ways of thinking occasionally, a woman can be just as kickass as any man while being as classy as any lady, which she definitely is one! Never change, Samus. Never change.

I share your sentiment. It’s too bad Nintendo was content to gradually degrade her character and status as a positive representation of females in video games, and instead would rather parade her around as a bipolar, emotionally abused sex object.
