The 24 games of Christmas! Game #3: Mega Man Legacy Collection

2 mins read

Ho, ho, ho, and Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a wonderful time of year. If you’re in the north then you get to enjoy snow, hot drinks, the wonderful colours of decorations and the smell of a freshly-cut Christmas tree. If you’re south of the equator, it means blistering hot weather, beer, and the wonderful colours of decorations and the smell of a freshly-cut Christmas tree.

Christmas is a time for good food, family, and friends. It’s a time for celebration, and Christmas is the time of year where it’s okay to be a kid all over again, and count down the days to gifts and celebrations one day at a time. Each year we get into the spirit of the season ourselves with a countdown of our own; the 24 Games of Christmas!

So please do join in the countdown with us, crack open some great games, and enjoy the season!

Game #3: Mega Man Legacy Collection

Chances are that series fans have already run the six classic platformers on offer in Mega Man Legacy Collection into the ground, what with them being nearly 30 years old. But if you’ve never touched Mega Man with a ten foot pole, this compilation provides a very affordable way to try something new. Well, something old, but surely you catch my snow drift.

Because these are all relatively short games (provided you’ve got the platforming proficiency), you can conceivably plough through one or two each day between social gatherings. There’s a certain novelty in experiencing each title within a short period, too. Watching the evolution of the series unfold in terms of story, visuals, and gameplay is fascinating; particularly since it all takes place on one console.
