Too bad no one ever really support it as it didn't not sell to very well.
I played almost all the Mega Man games that came out before the first Legends, and when I first played Legends 1 I'll admit I was surprised and disappointed. But after getting a hang of the controls, the game is a lot of fun. Legends 3...sigh.

Oh, I loved the hell out of that game. I played as Pura the tiger, and got everything as a kid when it came out (though I think I only got Sapphire relics and called it a day, with the occasional Gold or Platinum). I was NOT happy when the game got lost--if I remember a friend of one of my uncles borrowed it and I never saw it again.

Alan Wake - This game did a lot of things right and I enjoyed it very much. Sadly it didn't seem to sell well.
Tales of Vesperia - Great RPG that does so many things right. While it's not a TurnBased battle system, it's got a great unique flavor that works and gives people that fast pace feel. Loved the characters and their development. It was also a beautiful anime style that worked great.
I have a friend who is a major fan of Valkyria Chronicles and Alan Wake. I've dabbled in the second and found it fun. Hopefully I can find Valkyria Chronicles somewhere. I bought Tales of Vesperia at another friend's recommendation--I had just got a 360, and was looking for something fun. I remember being unimpressed at the idea of the game and having low expectations, but once I gave it a shot, it was awesome. A phenomenally well done experience.
In my opinion:
: I know that critics generally appreciated this game, but for the most part this franchise completely fell by the wayside and I'll never understand why. If I recall this was a commercial flop. In any case, so much effort was put into this game, and it was an immensely challenging and rewarding racing experience. It's vibrant and cheesy, and it's proud.
: Alas, poor TV-set hero. I knew him well. Bomberman 64 was one of my favorite games as a kid--it was simple enough to get into but still complicated and challenging. Don't take the plot seriously as it's not even amusing in an ironic way, just appreciate it for the color and the gameplay. Camera is occasionally annoying but it's not enough to be a deterrent.
: OH. MY. GOD.
If only I knew how amazing this game was when I played it at the time. Fun and puzzling, and definitely has its own identity as a game. Lots of personality and kinda cheesy, but still cool.
: Isn't it tragic that there won't be a Glover 2? Thanks for agreeing with me. A puzzle-platformer with awesome gameplay. It has such an interesting concept, and everything seems so simple and yet multi-dimensional. Sure you're doing a lot of the same
thing in shuffling a ball around and the bosses are easy (except for the Frankenstein if you have no idea what to do, as a kid I was stumped for about a week).
Really I could go on and on, but I should stop.
