    It doesn't take a very powerful system to play Metroid

    While, I'm sure you guys are joking, I'll answer anyways. According to the Dolphin-emu compatibility list, yes, you can play "Metroid: Other M". Just use the BIOS compatibility payload to load a normal Linux distribution on this Chromebook and install the emulator.

    I'm not sure how well Wii/Gamecube games would run on a Chromebook.

    How about Super Metroid though?

    It's Retroarch and some cores ported to Javascript with Emscripten. It wouldn't even require loading a normal Linux distribution.

    It's just an Intel based laptop with Google's desktop installed over Gentoo. Also, Gamecube games work surprisingly well on my laptop with Ivy Bridge.
