Passed a new GameStop today and decided to visit and see what titles they had. Went to their Gamecube section (there are a few titles I'd like to nab) and noticed the Mega Man Anniversary Collection for cheaps ($7.99). I bought it (of course!) and I'll start playing it soon. Since there are ten titles on the disc, I suppose I could start with Mega Man and work my way up. However, is there a title which is head and shoulders above the others that I should focus on first?

I'd go for Mega Man 2. It's definitely superior to Mega Man. Better too.

Thanks. When you consider the fact that I was sorely tempted to buy Mega Man and Mega Man 2 on the VC a couple of days ago, finding this title saved me a couple of bucks, as well as got me 8 extra games! Great deal if you ask me! I figure since I have never played Mega Man, this was a pretty good disc to get in ways of introductions. :)

It's nice to play them in order to see how the series progressed, it'll also keep you from getting used to conventions added to later titles, not being around in the earlier ones.
The only problem with playing them in order though is that the first one is the hardest, so depending on how it goes I'd recommend still playing in order but skipping ahead if you remain stuck in the first one for awhile. (There's a pause glitch that can be utilized to kill tough bosses, which takes the difficulty to being nearly in line with the others)

As for the better games, they'd be Mega Man 4, 5 and 6.

Didn't the Mega Man games have a sort of non-linear storyline until Mega Man 9? Anyway, 2, 4, and 5 are the best in my opinion.

Man... I wish i had that anniversary collection... or even the megamanx collection, considering ive never played any of those.
I have yet to play anything on that disc other than 2... so its hard for me to recommend stuff... but 2 seemed quite easy n comparison to megaman 9 so i liked it for that

Mega Man 2 and Mega Man 3.
If you had played the originals back in the day, I'd additionally recommend that you get a programmable controller so you can swap the jump & fire buttons.

No, it was linear, just not particularly pronounced.

And yeah, just play them in order. MM2 isn't that much better than the original, and it's nice to see how the series evolved over time.

I have both :). From my exeriences having played every Mega Man classic game, I'd say this is the order I'd put them in:
(This spot reserved for MM10), 2, 9 (not on collection), 4, 3, 6, 7, 1, 5, 8

BTW Supermegaman, if you're having trouble finding either of those collections, I could send you one. It doesn't seem right that you wouldn't have them considering who you are :D.

Play them in order. There's no real reason not to. Alternatively, i'd reccomend starting with 9, then going back to the originals for a long, likely cuss-filled, history lesson. =)

I envy you.

Anyway, you'd best start with 2, if you ask me. It's probably the easiest of the Mega Man games, and widely considered the best.

Hopefully you didn't get one of those copies with the super high pitched sound effects.

The best strategy in the game: go up stairs and pause balls.

I'd have to agree with just going in order, but have fun with the fire and jump buttons being swapped! :o

Though it may not matter if you've never played the originals, that is. :p

Edit: Also, prepare to cuss loudly during the final fight of MM7.

Were Quickman's lasers faster on "Difficult" in the original? (I know the English version had a "Normal" mode that was actually easy difficulty and "Difficult" is the original). I heard the difference was that weapons did more damage on the easier setting.
I played the PS2 MMA, and I swear the first laser after the midpoint required precision jumping (on the default difficulty).

No. Since "Normal Mode" wasn't originally part of the game, it doesn't do anything more complex than tampering with damage values a bit.
