Fan-game talk! Posted by MegaBossMan on January 25th, 2014 at 6:17pm Viewed 1045 Times
I haven't played a single fangame, but I'm a fan of speedrunning and I've watched runs of MMU and MM4MinusInf. I was also really keen on this one project Mega Man 72, there is some info available of it but the project itself died a good while ago, sadly. I'd really love to see some of the RMs from that game in MMRPG. More info, most of the info seems to be gone but whatever. But at least a full OST is available here, it's really great.
I wonder if this topic is for all fan-games or just Mega Man? Well I've played some Pokémon romhacks, and Pokémon Quartz is one of the better ones out there, just because it brings something new to the table with completely new mons.

I'll say something about fan-games real quick! I've played Unlimited, 7 and 8 FC, Street fighter X Mega Mam, 8-bit DeathMatch and others I can't remeber. I can't really go that far into detail right now so I'll leave at that for now.
Copy-pasted list of every MM fangame I've beaten from my profile page, alphabetized for your convenience: > Hard Hat: The Rebellion > Hard Hat III > Hard Hat IV: The Doc Robot > Mega Man 8-Bit Death Match >> MM8BDM Powered Up Expansion Pack >> MM8BDM Rockman No Constancy Expansion Pack > Mega Man's Christmas Carol > Mega Man's Christmas Carol 2 > Mega Man's Christmas Carol REMIX > Mega Man: Day in the Limelight > Mega Man: Day in the Limelight 2 > Mega Man Revolution > Mega Man Rocks! > Mega Man Rock Force > Mega Man Unlimited > Mega Pony > Rockman 4 Minus Infinity > Rockman No Constancy > Rockmen R: Dr. Wily's Counterattack > Rokko Chan > Street Fighter x Mega Man > Star Man - Upgraded - > SuperDanny Powered Up > SuperDanny 2 > Super Mega Man 3
I've also played Hard Hat II: War Ensemble and Mega Man 42, both of which I couldn't stand to finish due to a very low quality.
My best experiences were in Rokko Chan, Rockman 4 Minus Infinity, and in Mega Pony; while the worst were in (Excluding HH2 and MM42, obviously) Mega Man Unlimited, Hard Hat, and Rockmen R. Despite the fact that it had poor physics, I really liked Rockmen R's character design. As far as character designs go, Rockmen R, Rokko Chan (Again), and Rock Force have been some of my favorites. As previously stated, if I could add one game's worth of content to MMRPG at the snap of my fingers, it would be a tough call between Rockmen R and Rokko Chan.
I've obviously played Mega Man RPG and Mega Man RPG 2 multiple times. Not necessarily because they were well-made or fun, but I really got lost in the idea behind them and found the concept fascinating so I kept playing. :P All in all they're pretty terrible games with lots of mixed sprite work and some of the most generic buttons in all fangames, but they got me started on this path so I owe them some respect.
My research on Mega Man RPGs also led me to the likes of Mega Man X RPG which I found particularily well-done. I never finished this game, nor have I technically finished the above two, but I got pretty close. I liked how well the animations for this one were done, but as much as I like the X series there's something inherently more thematic about the classic series robots that I missed.
I have also played Rokko Chan, like the rest of you, and found it delightful. In the far, far future (sometime in 20XX) when new robots are more easily added to the game without affecting the single-player too much, I would like to reach out to different fangame developers and cameo maybe one or two of their robots in a special holiday pack or something - Rokko Chan is a great example and had some fun robots.
Other Mega Man fangames listed here I have not played, and I'm having a hard time thinking of any others that I have. I've spent so much time researching and programming the last several years that I haven't had much time to actually play. It's gotten to the point that I watch Let's Plays of games while I'm programming instead of actually playing them myself just so I can say I've experienced them. >_>
Oh! And I played the MM7 8-bit remake and I LOVED it. Really great. Still need/want to play the MM8 one but not anytime soon.
