39. Mega Man X (SNES)


How many various incarnations of Mega Man have there been? How many sequels? It’s probably like asking how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop, the world may never know. Despite the glut of games the blue bomber has been in, this is his most memorable outing. In Mega Man X, it’s been many years since the original Mega Man, and machines called Mavericks have run amuck, and it’s X’s job to stop them. Mega Man X, like the best Super Nintendo games, is a simple game in concept, but flawless in execution. Your goal is to defeat the robot master in each stage, then gain his power and eventually fight the head Maverick, Sigma. It sounds like standard fare, but actually, the fun is trying to mix and match all the weapons while finding different enemies’ weak points. Mega Man X will surprise you. Also, the game’s soundtrack is sick.
