I sent a tweet (on Twitter; of course….) when I first read this story on IGN.com a few months ago. Colin Moriarty, an IGN.com editor, wrote a story about a discussion he had about why he considers Mega Man 3 to be a better game than Mega Man 2, which is widely regarded as the best classic Mega Man game in the series.
**HINT: For those who are not familiar with the math I used in the blog title and pictures, and/or haven’t figured it out from the prior paragraph, it means that I feel that Mega Man 3 is GREATER THAN Mega Man 2.
Personally, not only did I find it an excellent read of his opinion, I whole-heartedly agree with Mr. Moriarty; Mega Man 3 IS the BEST classic Mega Man game in the series. I feel that it’s superior based on gameplay mechanics, story, music, and level design. I’m completely aware that most people who are video game-saavy feel that MM2 is the better game overall; however, I know other people who would agree with his statements, and the reasons behind them. Take a gander at his story for yourself!
