We've seen some pretty excellent fan made games make the rounds recently; and more recently, end up being shut down as result of Digital Millennium Copyright Act. It's a shame too, with games like Pokemon Uranium and the Metroid 2 remake, and No Mario's Sky, Nintendo needs to take a minute.

Well fortunately, Sega's outlook on fan made games couldn't be more different. After seeing Game Grumps played Green Hill Paradise Act 2, Sega took note and sent out their approval on twitter.

I remember when I first beat Metroid and it turned out the mighty bounty hunter was secretly a horse in power armor.

Speaking to Mashable, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Amie had this to say about the new Metroid backlash:

What the fan at home saw was something in the Metroid Prime universe that they weren't expecting. The reaction has been negative. There's no sugar coating it. This is an example where fans who aren't able to get their hands on the game may be at a bit of a competitive disadvantage. Everyone who has played what we are showing regarding Metroid Prime, they've come across really pleased. My ask is that fans trust us.


I only have so much trust to give, Reggie.  He goes on to discuss Nintendo's approach to creating new games in a franchise, saying "We believe that in order to propel the franchises forward, we have to be the ones to constantly challenge the paradigms, challenge the conventional wisdom, challenge what we thought was the essence of the particular franchise, and a particular form of gameplay."

Will you give Metroid Prime: Federation Force a chance? Are you willing to believe Nintendo nailed the "essence" of the franchise with this entry?
