I'm going to end this by gushing: I love Mega Man X, and I love it because Capcom tried something new and succeeded in truly setting X apart from his 8-bit brother. I love dashing and shooting and that is how I always ended up going through boss doors, because it was the only way that felt right. I always dashed with my index finger, because my thumb was always charging X's buster while slightly hovering over the jump button; it is the most awkward and yet satisfying stance I have ever used to hold a controller. I love how X can charge all the weapons he collects from bosses, which results in cool things like a shield that covers your whole body or temporary invisibility. Most of all, I love the little things. I love how the Met hats are still around and how a single Batton can be found in Armor Armadillo's stage; hell, I love shocking that fucker's armor off with a single blast from Spark Mandrill's gun and seeing him fry. I love how you can get Ryu's Hadoken by doing such an asinine thing like collecting all the power-ups and jumping in a chasm 3 times (and Dr. Light is dressed as Ryu when he gives it to you and X says a cute little audible "Hadoken!" when he shoots it). I love how you can tear Flame Mammoth's tusk off with Boomer Kuwanger's weapon. I love how Storm Eagle fights you on top of a plane and you don't even need to go through his boss door to fight him. I love making X do a walking glitch while riding on those spiked thingees the axe robots shoot at you at the beginning of Chill Penguin's stage; I could go on forever. I'll stop, but if you are wondering what the greatest music track in the game is, here you go.

My name is Arthur Damian. I am 37 years old, and I have been gaming since the NES era. I like the new school AND the old school. Chrono Trigger is the bestest game ever, and Junction is the worstest. I love to write, and I am currently working at CUNY School of Professional Studies, helping students transfer in their credits from other universities. I also love vidja gamez, and right now I'm playing games on the PS5 and Switch, even though I have a huge backlog of games on the Wii, Wii U, and 360 to go through. BLURG. I was an author at Destructoid's sister site, Nintendo Enthusiast, I work for That VideoGame Blog as editor-in-chief, AND I'm a staff writer at The Escapist.
