Two great games on their own should never go against each other for any reason. But since you're forcing me to pick, here I go!

Though I'm more than likely part of the silent minority, I'd say Mega Man 3. It introduced Proto Man, Rush, and the slide!(Something I missed terribly in MM9) When you got done with the 8 Robot Master stages, you revisited 4 of them, more challenging than ever, along with cameos of the Mega Man 2 Robot Masters! You could stockpile more than 4 energy tanks too. Not to mention the epic return and rematch vs. the Yellow Devil!

I'll freely admit though, the Robot Masters, weapon selection, and overall soundtrack of Mega Man 2 overshadows everything else in the series, but for good reason.

Long story short, everybody should own both of these games, no questions asked. I hate comparing 2 and 3 to the rest of the series (5 is my sentimenal fave), but I guess when 2 and 3 are at the top of everyone's lists I can't complain for people liking a Mega Man game. :3

I can pretty easily recommend 2 over 3, though 3 is indeed very good, and tough to find fault with.

EDIT: Nevermind, I found fault: the Top Spin sucks.

I've only played 2, but it's incredible! Definitely the best of the two! Though you can't go wrong with either of them.

o_O? What? You haven't played 3 at all?

Play Mega Man 3 first and THEN compare the two.

It's funny, but I like Mega Man 2 better. You'd think I'd like 3, since Proto Man's my fave Classic character, but I just love 2 so much. The music, the Robot Masters, and the weapons are much cooler.

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.


I like 3 better, 2 is great, but my actual favorite is Mega Man 1. I love the Elec-Beam!

I'm more of a fan of 3.


I liked Megaman 2 better than 3. Hence it was just good that MegaMari paid homage to that instead of 3... even if it did have its own version of the yellow devil.

Ive heard a LOT like 3 better but 2 just has a special place in my gaming heart that was so refueled by 9.
