I can't really speak to Metroid 1's *mechanical* difficulty since I haven't played much of it (nor original Metroid 2, only their remakes) but generally the thing that gives Metroid its difficulty, if any, is less mechanical and more not knowing where to go. Especially so without any kind of map in Metroid 1/2 (I know there are some hacks for Metroid 1 that add an in-game map though). If you're really wanting to play them you're obviously welcome to, but the remakes only add, never take away, IMHO.

As far as Dread goes I think it's just a case of a game being made specifically to appeal to the things people liked about previous games, by people who grew up playing those older games (i.e. MercurySteam). So lots of potential for sequence breaking, and also some tight action sequences to really hammer in the... well, dread. Metroid's always drawn some inspiration from Alien/HR Giger, but Dread has it stronger than ever.

What I mean is, it's not necessarily that the series has gotten progressively harder over time, Dread is just a bit of an outlier both in the scale and the type of difficulty, given that it was intended to be a capstone to the 'current' story that started back in '86. =w=

Oh, Dread without question. Aside from that... probably Zero Mission, or maybe Samus Returns?

We'll make a sequence breaker out of you yet, Soar :P
I'll extend to you the same offer I made Tony: if you play Super Metroid on Switch Online, I can watch and give you tips
