Mega Man 1: Man, it's great. The scoring system; the baddies in the Robot Master hallways; the pause function. It's a unique Mega Man game.
Mega Man 1 is also hardcore. Aside from the normal Mega Man trickyness, you also have a lack of Energy Tanks, no invincibility to spikes, far looser play control than any other MM game, random energy drops are very rare, oh, and there is no password system. Plus, there is an optional item that if you happen to miss and then go to Dr. Wily's castle without it, you can't beat the game.
In its day, this game set records in graphics, play control, uniqueness, and all-around quality, setting it apart from the other titles around, and in a lot of ways it's set apart from all the other NES MM titles.
