Super Metroid is owned by Nintendo. He was probably playing the game through an emulator with a ROM, which, at least for Nintendo games, is illegal.

He was probably running the Super Metroid ROM through an emulator on his jumpdrive, which is probably illegal.

Try searching for a flash version (here's one I found)
Don't mind me, I'm just lurking.
