Is there a series more overrated than Mega Man?

Is there a series more overrated than Mega Man? You could take just the best parts of the first six titles combined into one game, and it still wouldn't even be a top 10 NES game.

They're just so fucking derivative and poorly designed. The UI is so fucking slow and clunky and you have to constantly menu through it to cycle through all your weapons to find the one the boss is arbitrarily weak to, or constantly menu to swap between items in order to bypass environmental obstacles, and then you also have to sit there and farm RNG energy drops on trash mobs for minutes on end. It's just such so fucking moronic. The core gimmick of these games is the weakest part of the game, and yet they focus on that over actual competent level or boss design. All of the games just feel like a glorified Simon Says.

          Battletoads is genuinely a great game with a huge amount of variety. It's a shame most people never played beyond the turbo tunnel. Battletoads wipes the floor with garbage like Ducktales or Mega Man.

        >having to resort to multiples of same franchise

        Real top 10:
        Castlevania 3
        Ninja Gaiden
        Punch Out
        Zelda 1
        Metal Storm
        Shatterhand
        Guardian Legend
        Mario bros 2
        Jackal
        Mega Man 4

        Honorable mention to Kid Icarus, Zelda II and Blaster Master which are super ambitious but flawed/imbalanced

          SMB2 USA is legitimately awful, SMB2 JP (Lost Levels) is good.

          Guardian Legend is extremely overrated trash.

    Highly unpopular opinion but the first 2 mega man games are the most fun (9 is great too though)

    After that there's too much gimmicky bs and stupid difficulty, not enough platforming

    then do bosses without their weaknesses and don't grind health drops (maybe try not get hit in the first place). Mega Man is pretty much the opposite of a Simon Says design.
