Ryan from Battle Geek Plus recently* posted a video in which he looks back at the original Mega Man for the Nintendo Entertainment System and shares his memories of it, from the notorious box art to the ill-advised decision to go after Elec Man first, all the way to the final gauntlet of Robot Masters in the lead-up to Dr. Wily.
The first game in the series doesn't get nearly as much love as most of those which followed -- justifiably so, in some cases. Still, it laid the groundwork for much of what was to come and is still a good, memorable game in its own right.
Who else has fond memories of this one? A favorite stage, tune, enemy, Robot Master, or weapon? And -- this is the big one -- is it anyone's favorite? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
* Correction: Not so recently; he posted it to YouTube in December -- just in time for Mega Man's birthday, no less -- but Channel Awesome apparently took nine months to add it. Go figure. At least it was posted there in time for Mega Man Legacy Collection.
