The original Mega Man X is one of the voting options for GameFaqs' "BEST. GAME. EVER" poll, the websites largest, most community driven poll in five years.
Contending for MMX's spot are the likes of Phantasy Star IV, The Legend of Zelda:Link's Awakening and Final Fantasy III (FFVI outside of US). Very tough competition!
If you love the original MMX or just flat out love the X series in general, do your part and vote!
Thanks for the heads up Jeff.
