This poll is now closed.
I'm wanting to pick up one of the Mega Man games but I'm not sure which one to get. I've only played the first two and that was years ago. The first game seems the most iconic due to the bosses but the second one is talked about a lot more. What are your opinions? And I'd also appreciate any explanations of why too.

MM 3 is my personal favorite.
I was in heaven. I was in hell. Believe in neither but fear them as well.

I voted for 4, and I was surprised that someone else actually voted for it before myself.

2 with 3 being a close second

But neither off them hold a candle to X4.

I would say 7, but since that isn't on the poll or the E-Shop go with 3.

3 seems to be winning, but anyone want to explain why? 3 included sliding, right? Does 3 have the better level designs or something?

Out of only the NES games? I'd say 4. 2 and 3 are overrated as all heck, though they're decent enough, and 1 suffers from "too many problems that were fixed later in the series" syndrome. Though I like Mega Man 7, 8, 9, and 10 all more than any of 1-6, so if you have any of the 7th-gen consoles (Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360), I'd recommend getting Mega Man 9 instead.

3 has the best music, sliding, the rush coil/jet/submarine, and all of the bosses from a certain other game...(spoilers?) Not to mention fighting protoman and fun colourful stages and bosses. In short, Mega Man 2 is good, but 3 is superior IMO. 2 is just a overated game that gets more attention than it deserves, as 3 and 4 are just as good as 2, if not both superior. But 3? 3 beats all. It's got that amazing title theme too. Not to mention, if you have never played mega man 3 you will regret it. It is great, and deserves more credit than it's previous game. Also, aren't you sick of hearing the dr.wily stage 1 theme from megaman 2? If you really want to get 2 or 1, please get 3 as well. You will not regret it.

3, for all the reasons 1212-1 said. Mega Man 3 is bar none, my favorite video game of all time.

2 isn't overrated. it's a great game that made mega man what it is today. it had the biggest impact by far of all mega man games. 3 i agree is overall better..but that in no way means 2 is overrated .. they're both amazing
