Here’s our compilation of the best Mega Man games of all time! We’ve ranked them from worst to best.
Among the few video game series which have withstood the test of time, Mega Man remains a fan favorite. A constant in its design philosophy among action platformers, it has honed and refined its entries over the years for bigger and better experiences, and some even hold a high spot among people’s favorite games of all time.
Like any series though, there are entries that proved better than others, and today we have every title in the mainline series ranked from worst to best.
Best Mega Man Games, Ranked From Worst to Best
11) Mega Man 6
After several iterations in close succession, it was hard not to notice the flaws in Mega Man 6. True, it still held all of the elements one would want in a Mega Man game.
The platforming was challenging, the Robot Masters were interesting enough, and some of the new features like the charge shot finally felt tuned for most every level.
It also had an interesting story, with Dr. Wily replaced (temporarily, at least) by Dr. X, offering someone new for Mega Man to fight against for the fate of the robot world.
At the same time though, it feels the most generic out of the original NES offerings. The level design is predictable, the bosses offer less challenge than their forebears and the power-ups Mega Man can obtain feel like the barest variations on past power-ups.
There’s still enough here to make it an enjoyable platformer, but with so many better entries in the series to choose from, players wouldn’t miss much by skipping this entry.
