Truth be told, I never really got into the Mega Man series. I played a bit sometimes, but no major play-throughs or anything.
BUT THAT’S TOTALLY OKAY! Why? This post isn’t about my personal opinion. It’s one I took from and now share with Egoraptor. You may know him for his parody flashes on Newgrounds. The dude’s awesome. In his sequel review series “Sequelitis”, he reviews, well, sequels. He compares them to the original game, and why it’s an improvement or a huge letdown.
This particular episode really caught my eye. It’s not because of the games it’s about, but rather the points it addresses. Serious issues in the modern-day gaming industry. His hilarious and unique style however makes it not just another tedious review, but a good informative piece that’s fun to watch.
Below I have embedded the video for you guys. If you ever thought of making a game, you have no excuse to watch this. These are the very essentials of game design, so you’d better make sure you know what it’s all about.
And even if you’re not intending to do anything related to games ever, I still strongly recommend you watch this. Stick around for the first minute at least, it’ll get you hooked.
I’ve watched this, like, five times already, and it’s still amazing.
