Super Metroid is a fantastic game.

Are you going for item or scan completion? Your percentage in the game file only represents your item completion. So if you missed a scan, don't fret, you can still get "100%"

Also, my favourite Metroid game is Prime 2: Echoes.

If you say that out loud, it has a nice rhythm to it.
Super Metroid followed by Zero Mission.

Yeah. Don't worry about the scans. While reading about the morphology of certain creatures, and the history of the Chozo colony on Tallon IV is certainly interesting, it's not necessary to get 100%.

Also, if you only have 2 missile expansions by the time you get morph ball, then you've missed one.

Keep in mind there are 99 collectible items in the game, so each item you pick up is 1%, except for the final one, which will be worth the extra 2.

Hmm, interesting idea. People doing their own unique endurance runs. Fascinating. Makes me think what game I would consider enduring. I'm already too deep into Tales of Vesperia to endurance run it. Maybe an older game is the way to go, something like Morrowind, Wind Waker or Super Mario Sunshine.

Ooh, ooh, Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life endurance run. I loved that game, but never got THAT deep into it (never past the third time). That'd be so awesome.
