You can still tell things about silent protagonists though.

Like Samus, she's an orphaned woman who's been in the military and has super alien combat training and decided to be a bounty hunter for her profession.

Part of the reason people didn't like other M is because people could tell, even for a formerly silent protagonist, that didn't feel like her.
