When I was little, I used to LOVE playing Mega Man. For me, it was one of my favorite Nintendo titles… up there with the likes of Super Mario Bros, Double Dragon, Contra, etc. Unfortunately, the game I used to love so much, isn’t really the same anymore. And the new versions seem to be split into two camps…
- Mega Man Battle Network (featuring RPG style game play)
- Mega Man Zero/ZX (featuring classic side-scrolling action)
The Battle Network games I have absolutely no interest in as I’m just not a big fan of role-playing games. The Zero/ZX games, however, seem like a more direct descendant of the original. But apparently Mega Man isn’t even the main character anymore? Gah! Stupid Capcom.
So, I have an idea… remake the original Mega Man in the same way Nintendo remade the original Super Mario Bros for the DS. Maintain the awesome/classic side-scrolling game play, but introduce some new features like new levels and bosses. Maybe spice up the game play a tad, but still maintain what made the original so much fun… a small blue robot shooting white circles at the bad guys.
