"Mega Man 2" for the NES was the first game in the series I ever played. My parents rented the game from a local video store when it was brand new in the US in 1989 and it was just so different from the other platformer type games I had played on the system.
I loved the music, loved the graphics, and loved the game-play

I loved the music, loved the graphics, and loved the game-play. It was challenging at the time, but since then I have played it so many times that I can just burn right through the game (as evidenced in my video of it here).
This game was remade for the Sega Mega-Drive in 1994 as part of a compilation of the first three MM games with updated graphics and music, and I managed to track it down in recent years so that I could play it. This game was called "Mega Man: The Wily Wars" and was a lot of fun to play.
This game seems to have become a fan-favorite over the years, although personally I think I like MM3 and "Mega Man & Bass" just slightly more!
"Mega Man 2" is the sequel to the original game, set in the year 200X A.D., six months after the first game. Dr. Wily, who was defeated by Mega Man previously, plots his revenge by building eight new Robot Masters and a powerful robot army to go after Mega Man in the hopes of conquering the world.
The basic style is very similar to the first game, although the controls seem to be a bit tighter in places and there is no score system. Additionally, you can save your progress with a password system - a feature sorely missing from the original.
Each robot master gives you a power-up weapon that can be used to help you progress as well as defeat other bosses, and this time around there are Energy Tanks you can find that can restore your health mid-combat.
1988-89 was a pretty historical time for the world, although I myself was just a kid who was enjoying classic games on the NES mostly! I remember getting "Zelda 2" in 1989 and also remember when we rented the then-Japanese-only "Super Mario Bros. 3" that the video store had imported and what a blast it was!
