In the year 20XX a brilliant robotics scientist known as Dr. Light, created a helper robot named Rock to be his lab assisstant, and shortly afterward he created another robot named Roll to manage his house (yes the pun is intentional). After a falling out between Dr.Light and his partner Dr. Wily, due to the latter's jeolously, Dr. Wily vowed to get revenge on him and stole 6 of his recently completed robot masters, in order to conquer the world. Realizing they had no other options, Rock offered to stop Dr. Wily himself, so Dr. Light remade him into the heroic 'Blue Bomber' known as Megaman! After every defeat, Dr. Wily comes back with 8 more robot masters for Megaman to face. As time goes on Megaman gains new allies in the form of Rush, a robotic dog, and Protoman, his missing older brother, as well as his rival Bass.
The classic Megaman series certainly hasn't age that well, but it's still incredibly fun to play. It provides the player with a lot of fun, interesting challenges, even if the difficulty is a little too harsh at times. Megaman's ability to take the powers of the bosses he defeats is a rather unique mechanic, which adds a lot of depth to the game. Even if the classic Megaman series doesn't seem right for you, try looking at the other megamen, because they all offer something different and fun to their players!
