Mega Man Games: The Best Ever

Classics and New Mega Man Video Games for Playstation, Nintendo DS, Xbox, PSP and More

Mega Man Games

With an impressive lot of Mega Man games dating back to 1987 and spanning a dozen or more systems. The series started with the first original Mega Man video game for the Nintendo NES system, with five more to follow. From there, the SNES, Playstation, N64, Game Cube, XBox, Nintendo DS, and the PSP (to name a few) have all released incarnations of Mega Man games. All of these games really provide a lot of entertainment and fun. When you beat one game, you'll want to move onto the next on that same system (or grab one from another game system).

Is Mega Man 2 The Best?

Dr. Wily returns in Mega Man's greatest game for the NES

Air Man

This is quite possibly the best game in the entire franchise. Here, the number of bosses was upgraded from 6 to 8, with the robot masters being Metal Man, Crash Man, Flash Man, Air Man, Wood Man, Heat Man, Quick Man, and Bubble Man. The game featured great gameplay, with the 8 stages just challenging enough. After completing the 8 stages, you head to Wily's Castle to fight the Dragon, and eventually Dr. Wily himself.

Own Mega Man 2

In its full original form on NES!

Yes, this game is available in other formats, but what fun is that? This verison is a hard copy collectible that's playable and nostalgic. Yeah, sure, you might have to blow the dust out of the end of the game cartridge, but that's part of the challenge. Beat the game before the console heats up so much that it freezes or randomly flashes. It's like a ticking time bomb you're racing against that will erase all of your hard work. Okay, maybe only 80s kids will get this, but it's cool.

Mega Man X Series

Classic games on the SNES, Playstation and More

Mega Man X

After 6 games on the NES with 8 bit graphics, it was time to rejuvenate the series. In 1993, the first installment, Mega Man X, was released to much excitement. The game takes place years after the first series. The creator of Mega Man, Dr. Thomas Light, creates a new robot called "X" that is superior to his original creation. It is capable of making its own decisions, though Dr. Light felt the world was not yet ready. 100 years after his death, the "X" robot was found, and the prototype was used to build a new line of robots. These robots initially caused no problems, but some were infected by a virus created by Dr. Wily long ago, causing some of them to go "maverick." These maverick robots, bent on destruction, are hunted by the "maverick hunters" Zero and X in order to protect humanity.

Later in the series, the maverick hunter "Axl" is introduced, who initially has no memory of how he came to be. Their nemesis is the maverick Sigma, who is included in most of the "X" series in place of Dr. Wily.
