Some people just love the slide. But I agree, MM2 is the pinnacle of the classic series.

Haha, I was thinking about that... I've done it before, but it suuuuuucks.

You'd actually be quite surprised. I've seen this argument play out before on other boards, and MM3 supporters are very vocal.

Yeah, I think this is the majority of it, but there are aspects of MM3 that I really like. But that slide, though. It brings all sorts of mobility to boss fights that just makes things feel really, really good.

Out of curiosity, what did you think about Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10?

MM9-10 are amazing.

MM3 is the best.

Deal with it.

MM7 sucks.

Mega Man & Bass is far better than 7-8 (and back in the emu days was referred to as MM9).

Mega Man was cooler than both Mario and Sonic.

I have some slightly unpopular opinions on classic Mega Man.

Mega Man 9 is far and away the best game in the series. It's hard as nails but it always feels like it's your fault for dying.

Of the ones I've played, Mega Man 3 is by far my least favourite - it has too many bits that felt unpolished or cheap to me, especially the boss robots.

I will say that Mega Man 2 is probably my favourite NES era Mega Man game though, so I agree with the consensus there at least.

I don't like Mega Man games very much. Stiff and formulaic with a blue toddler in underwear. No thanks. Let me duck forcryinoutloud.

LOVE part two though. So sexy.
