UWG Top 10: #10 – Super Metroid

Fun fact: I sometimes write for the fine folks over at United We Game and over there we’re big on putting together some fun features on a monthly basis. This month we’re bringing a brand new Community Series to you all detailing our top 10 favorite games of all time.
