Mega Man 9
The retro-gaming thing has been on such a high kick for awhile now, which makes the innevitable backlash all the more innevitable and depressing. Does nostalgia make us call things classics that aren't? Sure, all the time.
But y'know what else? It's spot-on just as often. As far as I'm concerned, this game (new, but designed as though it wasn't) is all the necessary proof that old-line fans have been right all along that Mega Man just works BEST in 8-bits and scored by MIDI.
The game just kicks IMMESURABLE levels of ass. Buy it. It's awesome. It's downloadable on Wii now, PS3 by the weekend, 360 next week. Pick it up. This sort of thing needs to be encouraged, people - I wanna be shaking my head in disgust at obscene Splash Woman fan-fiction by no later than Sunday.
