Happy 25th Anniversary Mega Man! Your Foster Family Hates You!


Mega Man turns 25 years old today and it had the potential to be the greatest of days. Fan-made Street Fighter X Mega Man came out today as a free download for the PC, fans are out replaying the games to relive some of their nostalgia, and Mega Man is one of video gaming’s first mascots, but Mega Man’s new caretakers don’t seem to realize the gravity of the character or his current situation.

As discussed heavily all over the internet, Capcom has recently turned its back on the one character that may hold the most responsibility for getting the company to where it is today. We’ve also previously looked at Capcom‘s insolence in appealing to what their fans want when they pulled the plug on Mega Man Legends 3. Keiji Inafune, Mega Man’s creator and father, has since left Capcom to begin working on his own projects with his own team, and even though his new game on the Playstation Vita, Soul Sacrifice, looks intriguing to say the least, it is sad to know that there is no way that Inafune could work on a new Mega Man title at the moment.

But, even though we could sit here for hours on end and discuss what a great disservice and dishonor to Mega Man Capcom has pulled in recent memory, that would still be us missing the entire point of today’s importance to the character. So, let’s take some time to reflect back on previous Mega Man titles and really remember what he meant to all of us growing up with NES‘s in our living rooms. Be sure to listen to this while you scroll through memory lane.

Happy 25th anniversary Mega Man, hopefully one day you’ll return back to your former glory, but if that day never comes I can always remember all of those wonderful games that I grew up with that meant so much to me.

Thank you for this thing that you’ve created Keiji Inafune. The world wouldn’t be the same without it.
