Sometimes I forget that there were Mega Man X storyline lovers.
...stuff about Mavericks and other such.
Sometimes Mega Man X storyline lovers tend to forget that the original Mega Man had absolutely ZERO plot (you know: crazy partner scientist wants to take over the world, and loses AGAIN).
They complain how the Mega Man series is being run into the ground with Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10. Yet the odd thing is: The fans who kept the Mega Man series ALIVE until X came along: Are quite happy with the two games. So how can a franchise be run into the ground if it's pleasing it's original audience?
That's right: It's not.
Mega Man original lovers loved the crazy killer stages (more likely to kill you than any enemy boss) and cartoonishly ridiculous themed bosses (unlike the X series, where they try to make them a bit "cooler"... kinda' like trying to put a backwards baseball cap on a famous cartoon character in the 90s). They didn't really care that Dr. Wily broke out again and had sent out 8 Master Robots AGAIN. And they don't really care what happened inbetween Mega Man and Mega Man X. Because Mega Man original fans didn't actually like Mega Man X.
So suck it. Go back to your fan fics!
.... nah, I liked Mega Man X, too. I just think you guys are overreacting.
