List RulesGame must be part of the Mega Man series, not just include Mega Man characters.

Here is a list of the best Mega Man games, ranked from best to worst by thousands of gamers' votes. Capcom’s Mega Man franchise has a long and storied history with some ups and downs, so what are the best Mega Mans games and what are the worst? To settle the debate on which are the greatest Mega Man games of all time, fans like you have voted for and ranked all the Mega Man games released so far. Join in the discussion and vote for your favorite Mega Man video games that you love playing and add any new releases not already on the list.

Known as Rockman overseas and nicknamed the Blue Bomber, Mega Man has been on many consoles since his introduction in 1987. In fact, there is even a Mega Man game on the Sega Mega Drive named Mega Man: The Wily Wars. It was a remake of the original three games. But what really launched him to fame in North America was the Mega Man X series for the Super Nintendo system. Were those games the best of the franchise though? See what fans think below.

International-only releases are allowed on the list as long as they are part of the Mega Man franchise. That’s why you’ll see more than a few Rockman games on the list below. But games that just feature Mega Man as a playable character shouldn’t be added. So Super Smash Brothers 4 isn’t eligible to be on the list below. Otherwise, vote for the best Mega Man games below!
