Eh, a little bit. I'm not a huge Metroid fan, but sometimes Samus does inspire me as a kickass emale protagonist, and better than Jody. Really, I felt like a rat tarpped in a amze, and...the 3D games don't inspire me, just the 2D ones like Fusion and Super Metroid. Oh, and the guy on the Zipboard next to her is Bob, from the ReBoot series as his alias Interface. I'm assuming you hadn't seen ReBoot yet... So, Samus is part of the ReBoot Multiverse , so you can find the answers there. Also, I love NintendoCaprisun's Fake Sequelitis and his Super Metroid LP, as well as Fawful's Minion's LP of Fusion.
