The Mega Man series



The Mega Man series by Capcom has always been one of my favorites when it comes to 8 bit games.
They offer a good level of challenge and that special arcade feeling.
And by "arcade feeling" I don't mean the gameplay, but the difficulty level.

The Mega Man games have always been some of the most challenging ones on the system. It's impossible to beat them without dying dozens of times, even for experienced "gamers" (hate that expression). 
After getting though each stage you get to fight an endboss. After each boss you unlock a new weapon or skill.
There are only 9 Stages (and 9 bosses) in each game. They're that difficult.

The soundtrack is one of the most recognizable ones on the NES.

The series kinda went downhill on the SNES but it's not like there aren't enough games on the NES alone.

If you've got a few hours go try them. I'd recommend to start with Megaman 1, 2 or 3 on the NES.

  3. Yeees, Mega Man has to be one of the absolute best series! I dislike the RPGs, but as long as Mega Man has a gun, its a damn good game.
