Chances are, you already know how we feel about Mega Man 9
's appearance, but in case we haven't sufficiently conveyed our reaction: DOCTOR WOWEE.
For us, it isn't about nostalgia. It's about the fact that, done properly, 8-bit is a beautiful art style that shouldn't be abandoned. And few games did it better than the Mega Man
series. As nice as Mega Man 8
looked, the style of the NES games is much more distinctive.
Do you agree? Is the NES-esque presentation a wonderfully bold visual choice, or pandering to retrogamers?
