You and me both, brother. Mega Man was such a huge franchise and frankly just such a cool character. I tried hard to get into it but the difficulty was too great for me, especially the bosses, which led to my giving up since I wasn't motivated enough to keep trying.

I think this is sort of the common thread here. I bet SNES/SFC RPGs are what people feel they missed out on most. There are so many good ones but they're so time-consuming you're just bound to miss out on some of them. I don't think anyone's mentioned it yet but Super Mario RPG is another one I never really played.

I wanted to try these too.

Ha, this is one that's a bit after my time. I know tons of people here are into Pokemon and get nostalgic about it. I never got into Pokemon so I guess I don't know what I'm missing.
