That too. It's a weird Mexican/Peter Lorre thing going on. Very strange and I can't unhear it now.

Mega Man music is legendary, both in classic and X.

Hot tip: you can dash-jump off walls and go real far

MMX’s soundtrack is so good that I have it downloaded on my phone and listen to it regularly

i mean even capcom doesnt agree but i think Mega Man is the most consistently used and the one i personally prefer

but you could also be a weeb and just call it Rockman all the time

Even if official spelling is MEGA MAN half the logos def look like MEGAMAN - but like the other half are definitely MEGA MAN - so I’ve decided I’m just going to compromise and call him Mega( )Man

Megane man. Got it.

Anyway, finally stopped sucking on Spark Mandrill and am sucking on Armored Armadillo atm. One at a time. (THIS LEVEL IS SO MUCH FUN THOUGH I DON'T EVEN CARE I'VE REPLAYED IT ABOUT 9,000,000 TIMES)

So, I'm late to this party, but I figured I'd chime in anyway.

The original series is more or less like the others described.
Kinda a goofy, lighthearted adventure backdrop for the games. I loved it and took it way too seriously as a kid.
I'd say along with 2 and 3 maybe check out 4 too? It introduces the charge shot. (Or maybe just the opening story crawl? They were ridiculously proud of it back in the day.) It's where they first really started introducing story elements into the games.

X, you're experiencing right now. I agree with ML. 1 and 2 are excellent.
3 was okay but a little rough. 4, 5, and 6 are like a different formula and become increasingly anime and story driven but also increasingly unplayable.(4 being decent, etc, etc.) I've heard 7 is terrible and 8 was okay.
There's also Command Mission, which is an X series RPG. They gave Zero a surfer voice. that's really all you need to know about it.

I haven't played Battle Network, but I think it'd be 100% your jam, from what I know about it. Re-imagine the cast of the original series as sapient virtual pets owned by middle schoolers. Hijinx ensues.

Zero Series is a continuation of the X series staring, Zero. Very story heavy, and shakes up the formula by introducing some RPG mechanics like leveling up your weapons and currency for buying stuff and feeding your pets, and NPCs that roam your base. (then each game removes more and more of them until 3 and 4 basically play like X games.)
It clearly started out very budget, but got big. They actually had Japanese exclusive voice acted drama tracks and art books along with their sound tracks.
The english translation starts out rough and gets rougher because capcom is terrible, but it's still generally understandable, if worded a little silly.
These game are known for their difficulty, particularly the first one, but that's somewhat false because they do give you tools to work around it. (in the first game, getting a game over results in a failed mission, but that just skips the mission you're stuck on and lets you move on with the story.)

The ZX series is loosely based of the Zero series in that the characters can "transform" into versions of the characters from that series (X, Zero, the four Guardians and more.) Even more anime than the zero, but more the cheesy saturday morning type vibe. Sorta like a Power Rangers type of thing they were going for.
They experimented with an open world type layout, but it's a little confusing the way they implemented it and easy to get lost.(though it's fun using the abilities of new forms to reach places you couldn't get to before.)
The second game has absolutely terrible hilarious english voice acting. like, WOW is it bad. One of the characters likes to say the word "Booty" lot.
There was clearly supposed to be another game but the series was cancelled.
