There's battle network, star force, legends.... And If I'm not mistaken there's more. Could anyone name and tell me the difference between each one?

This sounds about right, though there are numerous other differences between all those series too.

And you might have figured it out already but Mega Man 1 to 6 on NES are where it all began for Mega Man and that is which every other Mega Man series is based on (even the action RPG games).

Mega Man Legends is not a third person shooter and Battle Network/Starforce is not an Action RPG.

...are you serious?

MML plays in a 3D world with a third person camera view and you mainly walk around, shoot things and talk to people. That sounds very much like a TPS to me but I can understand if you would put it in the Adventure genre, but I think that's a little too vague.

MMBN/SF are RPGs with an action oriented battle system and random encounters. Would you say that the Tales games are not action RPGs too?

Thanks guys.
I hope the 3DS gets another battle network or star force with online play. I missed all the previous games :/
