Mega Man (Classic):
- As the page image so eloquently illustrates, the vanishing blocks that are found in nearly every single game are utterly despised by gamers. Even the sound they make pisses retro gamers off to this very day.
- Mega Man 8: replaced the blocks with the jetboard in Frost Man's stage and Wily's Castle. It's even worse.
- Mega Man 7 and Mega Man 8 forced you to beat four of the robot masters first before you could go after the next four. Mega Man & Bass took this Up to Eleven with an odd system that unlocked new stages depending on which ones you beat prior. Saying this mechanic was unpopular would be an understatement.
The Mega Man Homepage: (On 8) Once again, you must tackle four Robot Masters at a time. (Why does Capcom keep doing this?)
- The removal of charging and sliding in Mega Man 9 and 10 is a bit of a Base Breaker, with some not appreciating the removal of long-standing mechanics to make the games more like Mega Man 2.
