I think this is self explanatory because of the title. Comment which megaman game introduced you to the franchise.

Mine was Megaman: The Wily Wars. I played out of curiosity since i was bored of playing always Sonic ROM hacks so i checked it out. It was a new experience to me since i never played a megaman game (or something similar) before, but it was a mess (a really slow mess), but i'm still had fun playing it anyways. MM - 1up
X1. Probably explains why the X series is my favourite.
X1 for the franchise. Though my first classic game was 8, which, honestly, IS a decent game imo. You know, minus the voice acting. Though you could argue that that's good too, but for all of the wrong reasons.

Also, @The Mega Fan 19XX it runs super slow because the rom is the pal version which is made to be able to play slower to match with the TVs' settings there, and so emulators will play it as such. However, it was released in the USA over the Sega Channel, and even though emulators will default to playing the rom as a PAL rom, you can set the emulator to run it as an NTSC rom (USA rom) and it will run at normal speed perfectly fine. So, you don't have to suffer annoyingly slow gameplay.
I have seen most NES (and 9 and 10) on Youtube and since it was on PC, I actually started with Megaman Unlimited... Yeah, but I don't regret that choice anyway. What I especially love about Megaman in general is back when I was way casual after seeing on Youtube I would just use weaknesses on everything I could, but I wouldn't even care about things like their invincibility frames, trying to actually avoid anything or even find out if they have a pattern. I would just think it was mostly random.

But to be fair, the first Megaman game I've ever seen in my life was one of the DOS games because DOS is how I got introduced to video games as a whole. While I did not play it and I only saw like a couple of seconds of it (but due to the internet I know now how it is), that is pretty much the first time I've seen the legend.
I actually first heard of the series through Playstation magazines. At the time, Mega Man games reviewed really, really, badly due to being 2D games. I actually checked out the series due to morbid curiosity, and was pleasantly surprised when I found I actually liked the games
.
First Mega Man game played: Wily Wars via emulation. It was enjoyable enough for me to check out the rest of the series, and I got hooked.

First Mega Man game owned: X6.
Yes really.
Mega Man 3 and Mega Man 4. I remember playing them extensively at a summer day program when they were still considered new. Once I got my NES they were among the first games I sought out to have in my possession. I loved how different it was from the other platformers with the "Choose your boss" stage select, the awesome music. The way you absorbed the boss after murdering him. It was all a different type of game. There was also the challenge of figuring out which weapon each boss was weak to. (Remember kiddos: before the Internet we had to figure this out on our own!). It just all clicked and created a lifelong love of the franchise

I guess the DOS games gave you a really bad first impression of Megaman then

Yes really.

At least you have to be thankful that it's not X7
I was just a kid and I was mostly watching my brother play them. I practically had no real impression about it.

well okay then. I played MM: The Wily Wars with an emulator back in 2013, when i was 16 years old.

Being a dumb teenager of this generation, I was not around when the first original series launched. Instead, when I was about 3, I played Mega Man X4, which was my first Mega Man game ever. Later, around the age of 5-6, I got Anniversary Collection for the Gamecube, which I played to DEATH. Looking back, the "emulation" (if you really want to call it that) on the NES games wasn't so great, but as someone who wasn't familiar with the original games, I didn't care. I loved every second of it (despite the fact that I only beat MM6 at the time).
Outside the cartoon, which was my first introduction to Megaman, the first Megaman related game I've played was:

Mine is actually a little weird - maybe not the weirdest on here - but still kind of weird.

So, I actually can't remember which game I played first - but I do remember playing the first six games pretty consistently on the site NESemu.com. Essentially, the site emulated NES games through your browser, so you could just play them on the site. Anyway, I may have played 1 or 2 first, but I played all six quite a lot. I especially loved playing 4, 5 and 6. Although, like a lot of the rest of you, I knew about the entire classic series before playing the games because of YouTube. Now, I have the legacy collection and I still enjoy playing all 6 games, though I've experienced things a bit differently (on NESemu, they were noticeably slower and more prone to crashing.) I definitely prefer the Legacy Collection - though I'm glad I was able to experience the games for the past few years with NESemu - otherwise, I might not be as big of a fan as I am now.

I also got 9 and 10 for my Wii - although I've never played 7 and 8. I've seen plenty of let's plays and footage of them, but my only hands-on experience is through Rockman 7 and 8 FC. They're really good, although I can't say how the originals stack up from firsthand experience. However, from what I've seen, Mega Man 7 and 8 are just as good - if not even better than the FC games - and for now, I maintain that 8 is in my top 5 games in the classic series.

So that's about it. Now, I haven't played the X series - though I really want to play X1-4. They all look really good - especially X1 and X4.
There was a laser tag my family went to when I was a kid. Though there were buttons missing, I always enjoyed playing a round or two of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 with my brother. As it happens, I consistently chose Mega Man because he was like Superman and Ultraman, but Mega. I'm serious.

However, a couple years later, my brother and I both decided to buy copies of Mega Man Battle Network 2. By this time, I had completely forgotten about Mega Man being in MvC2, or even that MvC2 even existed (I was young). So really, my true introduction to the franchise was Battle Network 2.
I actually have very little idea of what introduced me to Megaman, TBH. My guess is that I stumbled upon some Megaman music in a game I was playing, and I went to Wikipedia to look up the series (...yeah, I'm kinda like that). I know I eventually got interested enough to download a ROM of the first game and play it, but my memory of what made me do that is fuzzy (though it may have been my discovery of the Team Scene - anyone remember that?). Regardless, I started out with MM1, moved on to MM2 when it got too hard, then to MM3 when THAT got too hard, etc. (Though MM3 is the first MM game I've beaten). Before I knew it' I'd become a Megaman fan.
Mega Man was a bit of weird history for me. MANY years ago I played Mega Man Polarity Reconstruction (I suspect around 2006-2008). I believe my sister found it, but after I played I didn't find the game until Flashman showed it in his stream a few months ago.

However, until 2014, I had literally no knowledge of Mega Man. All I knew is that I played a MM game that was really awesome (but playing it now, obviously it's not the best, but the way you remember things is different from what they are most of the time). It was in mid-2014 when I played Mega Man for the first time, but it was kinda hard and I although I did defeat Cut Man and Guts Man, I got stuck on Ice Man and gave up. Later I played Mega Man 2 and I beat the 8 robot masters without problem and had trouble with Wily stages, but never beat the game until much later. Anyway, I enjoyed it but not enough. Then I went back to school and I was playing games on emulators on my phone because of how fucking boring school was. I played Pokemon first, but then tried Mega Man 3 which was painful on a touch screen but I guess I liked it, but don't remember if I beat it or not. All that matters after, is that I played Mega Man X for the first time on the phone, and that was when I truly became dedicated to the MM franchise. Not only was it the closest to my false nostalgic memories of MMPR, but the way it was presented with the absolutely kickass overdriven SNES guitar and its absolutely beautiful visuals has made me love the series to this day. After that, since playing on the phone started to become unpleasant, while on vacation in Late 2014/Early 2015 I played and finished Mega Man 3, 4, 5, 6, X2, and played without finishing 7 and X3. After that nothing becomes interesting.

It's a shame really, just when I started to love the series, the franchise was already on hold for 4 years, with no proper Mega Man sequels to this day. Regardless, I have finished almost the entirety of the Mega Man series, which includes 1-7, 10, X1-X8 (except X7), Zero 1-4, ZX/ZXA, BN1-6 (did not beat the final boss of BN3 and 4), and SF1-3. So I played every main series MM except Legends.
MM2. I was watching "best NES game" videos on YouTube and I saw Mega Man 2. I then actually played the game and realized it's not a good game. So I looked up information about the franchise and didn't really become a fan until my friend told me to play the other games. Now I'm practically obsessed with the franchise. woo
This might surprise you, but the game that introduced me to MegaMan was X4.

:mwhat:Yep.
I think that my first game was Megaman X1 back when I was like 5 or 4 years old.

I had the first X3 games and then Megaman 7 then came the Ps1 games.

Good memories
You guys will love this: I'd never played Mega Man until I saw Brentalfloss' Mega Man With Lyrics videos. From that, I took it upon myself to download an NES emulator and a ROM of Mega Man 2. I started playing, and fell in love with it.
I grew up with a Super Nintendo (kinda odd considering it was the 2000s), so my first Mega Man game was X1. Now I'm a huge fan of the classic series, have played all of them, and have only really played Mega Man X1 and 3. Oh, and Maverick Hunter X, which is a great remake except for the music.
