Looking Back: Mega Man

The original Mega Man rarely receives its proper due. Maybe thatís because the tiring proliferation of the franchise has obscured our sight with a general sense of contempt for the little blue guy that retroactively spans all the way to his origins; more likely itís because most people came aboard the franchise with the vastly improved sequel. Mega Man 2 is a masterpiece, and make no mistake about it. By comparison, its predecessor is a strange, ill-fitting oddball that includes elements absent in the rest of the series while lacking many features that would become standards in the later games.

Re: Looking Back: Mega Man

I remember when my local video rental store first had this game in, and I thought the cover artwork looked lame. One of my school friends claimed he played it and described it as a stick man picking up dots.

That kept me from renting even longer until one day after having played most of the titles they had available at the time I gave it a chance. I liked it. The whole idea of getting the powers of the robots you defeated seemed really cool to me. Of course I had words with the school friend who called it a stick man picking up dots.

I found it used and bought a copy and I still have that original copy today. And of course when Mega Man 2 came out later I had to have it, and I was not disappointed.

Re: Looking Back: Mega Man

Great story Elrod. Just goes to show you that sometimes you just have experience stuff for yourself. I stole my first copy of Megaman 2...well sort of. I swapped games with a kid from my neighborhood. It was suppose to be a temperary thing, but I sort of never gave it back and made the swap permanent.

Re: Looking Back: Mega Man

I remember this kid who was my babysitter's child stole games from me/toys, and never gave it back. So what I did was steal some of his games. Duck Dodgers and Lion King come to mind. Gotta admit Lion is like my second fave Disney game (behind Great Circus Mystery) love the challenge. Maybe a third one. my Mom even approved of it. O_o

Also funny how the Megaman series has unique findings for each of us (you stole it, Elrod was misinformed, and I got it by mistake)

Re: Looking Back: Mega Man

Well no matter how I found it, I am glad I did.

The first time I beat the Rock Monster boss on the first Dr. Wily stage much jubilation occured at my house as my brother and I had been trying for awhile.

I saw the cover artwork, said "That looks really stupid, what kind of name is 'Mega Man' anyway?" and decided to play it just for that. It turns out it was awesome, so when I saw the second one I said "The first one was kind of cool, maybe this one will be good." and I did that for each game in the series until after playing through Megaman Six, then I just gave up.
