I applaud you getting through all the X games (that matter to me, at least so far). On the PS2, I have a Mega Man X Collection that has 1-6, so I found these to be interesting, as I haven't done anything with that collection other than the first level and Chill Penguin's in the first game and I think a brief sample of a couple others, so reading an opinion on each of the games was nice.

Because of 6's reputation, I think that's the one I've read the most about, as well as watched YouTube level videos. I have to say that game seems to be a mix of "good ideas, poorly implemented" that can lead to you being in a virtually unwinnable situation due to having the wrong suit or something like that AND "bad ideas, period" like that one level that's just non-stop fighting that tedious sub-boss.

X6 is rough, rough, rough. From what I can see, X7 is bad too. I played and quite enjoyed X8. It wasn't as great as the early successes, but it was a fun enough game at the time. I also liked X5 a fair bit. I think X6 and X7 are the two most worth skipping. I wonder what an X9 would look like today. I suspect they would do a pretty decent job, if they devoted the right resources to it.

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world2

Thank you, gents!

Rob: I intend to go through 7 and 8 at some point, too. I tried 7 out for a few minutes, but realized I needed a break. It's just... Ew...

Jason: I am looking forward to 8, but I was not thrilled with the three before it. At least I only have one be more yo suffer through before I get to it. I also would like to see X9 before I die. Maybe...

I have not played X6 since circa 2003, but of the four on PSX, X6 was probably my favorite. I liked the challenge and some of the gimmicks in levels. IIRC, you can also skip the dialogue, which was my chief issue with MMX5.

That said, I haven't played it in 20 years and probably shouldn't defend it too hard. I'm just going to revel in my happy memories of it rather than try to open it back up and see the folly in my ways.
