Rockman Corner has a very interesting poll for its frequent readers going on right now, asking which of the PlayStation 2-era Mega Man games they would most like to see emulated on the PlayStation 4.
Of course, the main problem with asking this question is that none of the PlayStation 2 Mega Man games are particularly well remembered or loved except by the most hardcore of hardcore fans. There are also only three games to choose from as well: Mega Man X7, Mega Man X8 and Mega Man X: Command Mission.
Out of these three choices, Mega Man X8 seems to have the most people who genuinely love it. I’ve never played it because Mega Man‘s reputation had sunk pretty low by that point, so I don’t have an opinion. Mega Man X: Command Mission is also proving to be popular, but it’s more of a curiosity as a weird JRPG experiment.
Mega Man X7 is best left forgotten, it seems. Not a single person in the comment section is requesting it, and many are taking the opportunity to just spit on it.
As for me, I’m not sure if I would buy any of them at Sony’s current pricing point for PlayStation 2 games. However, if I had to choose, I would be most interested in Mega Man X: Command Mission just because it is such a weird idea. I’m also curious to see if Mega Man X8 is as good as fans say it is. You need to be careful with the assurances of fanboys though.
While the poll and the website are hardly official in the eyes of Capcom, website owner Protodude does have his connections and says that a “friend” would like to know. He also promises that “certain parties will be watching this post.” Interesting.
I wonder if we’ll see a Mega Man PlayStation 2 game before Mega Man Legends 2 pops up as a PSOne Classic on PlayStation 3.
