Is Capcom Trolling Mega Man Fans?

GotGame: Few characters have managed to stay relevant in the video game industry for 25 years. This achievement places Mega Man in the upper echelon of game heroes alongside the likes of Link, Mario, and Samus. This should be a time of celebration, but Mega Man fans have had precious little to celebrate. (3DS, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

The problem with this franchise is they make WAAAAAY more games than they need to.

There's Mega Man 1 - 10
There's Mega Man Game Boy 1 - 5
There's Mega Man X 1 - 8, as well as Xtreme & Xtreme 2, and X Command Mission
There's Mega Man Battle Network 1 - 6 and a bunch of spin-offs of it
There's Mega Man Zero 1 - 4
There's Mega Man ZX & ZX Advent
and then there's Mega Man Star Force 1 - 3

I now see why Capcom's decided to take a break from the franchise. And now I'm puzzled why Mario's the one they say is milked. Sure, he's had way more games but at least he doesn't stick a number on the title over and over and over.

You missed some. Mega Man Legends 1/2, Misadventures of Tron Bonne, Mega Man Soccer, Battle and Chase, EXE Network Transmission, Mega Man and Bass, Battle Chip Challenge................

That was part of the problem, yes. Capcom definitely went over the board for a while. Generally they stuck with one incarnation of Mega Man, then run it dry.

Noone is asking for Capcom to make games at the same pace they used to, but wouldn't it be great if they made less games with more quality? If Capcom released one or two quality Mega Man titles a year, I think fans would be more than happy.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

I liked most of the games you mentioned there... not everyone of them, but most of them.
