Re: 2 books, 1 video game, 8 movies, 6 albums
I've played and beaten MM, MM2, MM7, MMX, and MMX2. Of those, 2 and X2 are the best. MMX came out stunningly late for an SNES title--January 1994--while Capcom kept going with NES titles for 6 games, with Mega Man himself never being redesigned!
The cyclops thing is one of the two moments I was talking about in my original post; the other is that horrendous three-tiered dropping-pulley-catwalk puzzle that unceremoniously starts off Guts Man's stage.
