Absurdly Specific Genre: Video Game Controller Destruction Inducer
Difficulty: 9 (oh GOD)
Beaten: No. I've gotten close a couple of times, then my Nintendo died. I've beaten it using an emulator, but I'll be damned if I'm going to count that kind of cheating cockflickery.
This is too low. I know that. Unfortunately, as mentioned back in the beginning, I didn't have access to an NES in my formative years, and the Mega Man series was one that none of my friends wanted to play as a party game. I didn't get to experience the joy of the Mega Man series in any meaningful depth until a few years ago, but it's worth the wait.
Spooky commented on the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 entry a week or so back, mentioning that the older style of platformer (even a relatively easy one like Sonic 2) has a bite to it when a player is used to the newer, more forgiving games. So yeah, Mega Man 2 kicked my ass. Repeatedly. Over and over.
