MegaMan in general not the series, that you play for innovation. It's probably one, if not the most conservative game series out there, which never strayed from it's core premise and gameplay.

I liked MegaMan 7 & 8 and felt like they were the proper evolution of the series. At least as far as visuals are concerned. NES games felt stale and repetitive after MM3.

Interestingly enough MMX had repeat the history of classic MegaMan - X2 and X3 felt like expansions for the first game, rather than new games. And X5 felt like expansion for X4. X6 felt like thing of its own, but not because of design, but because it was rushed. X7 was garbage and I haven't played long enough into X8.
Now with 200,1% more poison!
