Alright. To give Capcom a tiny bit of credit, Mega Man games do sometimes reference the previous adventures of the Blue Bomber, Mega Man 3 and 10 especially. It's just that the games are NES platformers, so at the same time, they really don't need to have a story beyond intro and outro cutscenes when you've already got solid gameplay and a great soundtrack. Also, whenever they actually try to write a story it always comes out retarded.
