Metroid was the first videogame I ever owned. That alone should warrant some nostalgia, but mix with it the fact that my mother and father divorced with I was five, and Metroid was one of the few post-split gifts from my father, the game becomes more than just a game. It becomes a symbol of my confusing childhood.

I’m really proud of this video. If you relate at all to this video please share it.
