I can't say anything about MM6 since i never played it, but MM4 for me was definitly the low point in the series. MM5 wasn't too great either, it was decent at best but also a bit insulting regarding the easy breezy difficulty and the fact that it completely lost the mega man feel and vibe. And then there's MM8....Which i think would of been much better had they ditched the awful techno bubble gum hazey gloomy beats and went with something that actually sounded like Mega Man.lol Plus mega man screaming "power Shot" during gameplay was god awful, along with those murky depressing serious in tone cut scenes.

6 and 7 are the only 2 i still need to play! And i wan't them on the VC Capcom! :p

Anyways, MM6 has me pumped....Why? Because it's got freakin Centura man! B-) Plus, Mega man fans probably never had any high expectations with MM6 since it all went to mediocrity lowsy hell with MM4 and then the barely better MM5. Even MM3 while excellent lost that amazing and memorable feel and tone that MM2 boasted.

2 & 9 are the cream of the crop. While I've got a major soft spot for 1 which also has my favorite Wily stages, and 3's pretty god in it's own right. 5 was decent at best, while 4,10 and 8 imo were the low points in the franchise. 10 & 3 are simular in the sense that they both have this darker less colorful serious tone, and for some reason I hate that in a mega man game.

Can't mention Mega Man 8 without talking about Aqua Man! But, we can call him "handsome" (ROTFLMAO)! :P

lol. Forget Aqua man, Grenade man sounded like a complete bogus megatard' while Astro man sounded like some hilarious Tranny hair dressor. :D

I absolutely love Mega Man 4. The music, graphics, stage designs, etc. Mega Man 3 is decent, but it seems too bizarre at times (Snake Man's stage for example). I also like Mega Man 5 for the catchy music and unique stages (Crystal Man, Charge Man, Gyro Man, Gravity Man are my faves).

Mega Man 2 is good, but it's vastly overrated. Mega Man 3 and 4 improved upon it in every way (Rush, charge shot, sliding). The only problem with MM4 is it gives you 1-ups like crazy.

You and i seem to have the complete opposite taste in mega man and your taste seems to be pretty different from the norm compared to most MM fans, but that's cool. :p
I felt that most of 4's tunes were pretty grating...They had this tingy staticy grating tone to most of them, although Dive man's was probably the best of the bunch. I dont know, i felt like the level design in MM4 plus most of the boss battles were pretty w eak sauce. it felt so uninspired and stale at the time, i played MM1-4 in order during my NES days with a then with a splash of 5 when the NES was beginning to semi-fade away.

As for MM5, imo it has one of the worst soundtracks in the franchise, everything sounds too simular and fitting for some galactic space stage. It's all pretty mellow and forgettable stuff aside from a few decent tracks.

And with MM2, you've got to understand when it came out it was flat out amazing. It was an insanely vast improvement over the original, it boasted some of the most amazing 8-bit tunes of that era and it has such a distinct epic vibe about the entire package, plus it was so creative, colorful, ubeat and flat out epic. Fast forward to now, and well.....Ya, there are things about it that haven't quite aged well. The ladder climbing is too slow, the controls arent quite as zippity as MM3 and onwards, some of the Robot Master battles feel a smidge sloppy and Wily's Castle(amazing bosses aside, like that massive dragon who scared the hell out of me back in the day) was a bit stale. Actually MM2's Wily castle for me was the worst wily castle in the franchise to be honest.

People who were there or played it around the time during it's release and right after MM1 'got it' it was such a crazy awesome experience, Bubble, Air and Wood man's stages truly are the standouts if you ask me. B-)

If i were new to the Classic franchise, i'd probably rank MM9 as the greatest, because i truly feel like it is the best of the Bunchy. :)

Oh god. Mega Man 8's robot's names are horrendous. Clown man? Grenade man? SWORD man?! What is this randomness I'm smelling? What I do remember from MM8 was the difficulty. That damn difficulty.

Just for you.

Mega Man 6 is just as bad.
Plant Man
Centaur Man
Yamato Man

And don't forget about Mega Man 10!
Nitro Man
Sheep Man
Strike Man
Pump Man

@WaveBoy

Mega Man 4's music is nowhere near as bad as Mega Man 6. The only good song from Mega Man 6 is Wind Man.

Here's a sample of Mega Man 4 and 5. Tell me if you hate that music.

MEGA MAN 4 - Skull Man

MEGA MAN 4 - Pharaoh Man

MEGA MAN 5 - Napalm Man

MEGA MAN 5 - Gyro Man

Mega Man 3 and 4 were composed by the same person, BUN BUN. That's why their music sounds so similar. Whoever composed Mega Man 5 must have taken inspiration from those games.

It doesn't look like anything will be released by Christmas or this month. I think we might see more VC games next year with a huge step up from 2011.

I will just go ahead and say that the US Wii VC games are done... When the Sega Master System started taking games back... It was dead!!! ""Like the red blinking light on our NES""

I hate the fact the Wii VC is dead and buried, but it does save me money now that I no longer need buy Wii Point cards.

Reggie says the Wii VC isn't dead but there hasn't been a single release since. Here we are two weeks left in the year and still nothing. VC Must be in a coma then. If we don't get something before christmas I'm sending a very strongly worded E-mail. :(

Does anyone know if Nintendo is aloud to put up DK64 or is it because of Rare.

Did Rare not develop the orginal SNES Donkey Kong Country games that are currently on the VC?

I love answering a question with a question.

They haven't put it up not because of copyright issues, but because Rare used a certain chip or something in the game (and most of their other N64 games) that makes it hard to emulate, and also hard to put on the VC.

Like the SNES version of Starfox that had the FX chip. So 2D polygons can give the appearance of rotation in a 3D frame... Or a ship can turn left! LOL

you know what they say, talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words.

this hiatus has gone on for too long and i don't get why they release V.C games for the 3ds, which is great but not for the wii V.C as well.
