Mega Man X 1-3 were the best on the SNES, I still play them today from time to time and can believe how well crafted they are and what kick ass soundtrack they boost.

Capcom if you're reading this, please, PLEASE make Megaman Legends 3 and a new 2D Megaman game with HD graphics (like a new Megaman X).

LISTEN TO THE (REAL) FANS! IF YOU LISTEN TO US YOU WILL TAKE OUR MONEY!

What I want more than anything is the game that ties the classic and X series together.

Capcom just completely left us hanging with the knowledge that Dr. Wily built Zero.

Even though it's been debunked, I'm a huge fan of the cataclysm theory in which Zero basically kills everybody.

I fuckin loved Megaman Battle Network. Wish they would make another for the XBLA or something, and not one of the bad ones.

Megaman X- X3 were the absolute greatest. X-4 - X6 were pretty awesome, but it was downhill after that for the X series.

Please Capcom, please, create a new Megaman X game that holds the same quality/style as X-X3. Just like you remade the retro, this would be the best of the best!

I think a game like megaman x with metroid-vania gameplay style would be awesome. could you imagine leveling up, getting new armor pieces, fighting tons of new bosses that would allow you to acsess new parts of the map!!! that would be a dream come true.

@FreedomPrime This great video has got a lot of love. It make me think that Capcom should make animation to commemorate 25th years of Megaman achievement.

Megaman X on the SNES is by far my favorite game of all time. that game was such a huge part of my childhood. I can still to this day beat the game in a single sitting in around 40 mins.

@MadcatMK6 The series isn't too popular outside of the hardcore Battle Network fanbase.

Actually I'm not sure I want Mega-Man to come back. He's too ultra violent for our kids and may turn them into psycho killers. *sarcasm*

Bring the PC ports of the Mega Man X games to GOG (DRM-free) please! Capcom already has Street Fighter Alpha 2 (DRM-free) on GOG. So why not these?

Just stick to the original 8-bit format. See how many people play and love the 8-bit Megaman 10, released in 2010? When something isn't broken, don't fix it, CAPCOM!

@lavalarbo Thats a very closed minded way of thinking. You, as well as Capcom, need to move on from 8-bit if this franchise is to ever be relevant again.

@lavalarbo

I like the SNES and GBA Mega Mans as well.

Since there are PC ports of the Mega Man X games, I'd like to see Capcom bring those to Steam and GOG (DRM-free). Hell, Capcom brought Street Fighter Alpha 2 (DRM-free) to GOG a couple of months ago. I own it and it plays like the PS1 version. So my hopes are up.
