Collectors' Curse

For some reason I have recently decided to always have a new game coming from Ebay at all times. This is like reasoning that one must always be drunk, except slightly less expensive (for the record I have not formally come to this second conclusion at the time of writing). Since I now must always be receiving new gifts, I was on Ebay last week and saw the Megaman Legacy Collection for the PS4, which includes Megaman 1 through 6. It was a reasonable price, and although I am officially the world's worst 2d Platformer I decided to get it.  Even though my PS4 is constantly ejecting discs. Again.

So I got it in the mail today, and I realised, "Wait a minute!, this feels familiar".  Racing to the library, (with a brief visit to the beer fridge), I perused my PS2 section and found Mega Man Anniversary Collection, which features Megaman games 1 through 8!  EIGHT! Plus two bonus games! That's, mathematically derived, four additional games over the game I just bought.

 D-oh!

D-oh!

So the moral of this story, folks, is don't go collecting 3,000 video games.  The secondary take away is that I guess Mega Man at some point became Megaman. Thanks Obama.
