Capcom churns out so many soul-crushing games, they should just rename themselves "The Pain Factory." Yet, when those games are like Mega Man 9, we're more than happy to endure a bit of masochism. The ninth installment continues the blue dude's crusade against Dr. Wily and his legion of robots, including Hornet Man, Concrete Man, and Magma Man. D-W has been defeated so many times, you'd think by this time he would've created, y'know, Super Man.
FUN FACT: The game's Legacy Mode simulates the low video processing power of the original NES by not fully rendering sprites, causing them to flicker when too many are onscreen. Nintendo power!
