Nice to see some love for Dragon's Curse specifically! I know most people have fond memories of the SMS version (Wonder Boy III), but my first time playing was the Dragon's Curse version on a DuoExpress. The music specifically strikes me as a lot better on the TG16.

Interestingly, mainline Kirby entries have been one of the last if not THE last game of many a console.

Oh I'm sure it's possible. I'm surprised there isn't an achievement for beating all of Megaman 11 without using the gear system at all, but I'm glad there isn't, only because I'm selfish and I'm trying to get them all. =P I have no desire to attempt Torch Man and Wily 2 without it.

Something I discovered by complete accident today, if you activate the power gear and charge up a shot, and hold it until RIGHT before you overheat (and that's from 0 on the meter), you'll fire an even more crazy huge power shot that goes through everything and takes like a third of the health off of any boss. Practicality varies, since you have to avoid getting hit the entire time, and it's not like your heat goes down when you get hit, so you only get the one chance before having to cool off again.

Well... yes and no. They still have some charme, I guess.

Kirby's Adventure is one of my all-time favourites as well for several reasons, one being its aesthetic which is like nothing else, not even other Kirbys.
They did so much with so little, it's nuts. Like how Dream Land was made by clicking on-screen keys with a trackball, or how there's no enemy collision detection and so every enemy's movement was manually written in: [Link]

I was put off by Rockman 11's look at first (it looks almost mobiley), and felt that the double gear system was unnecessary bloat, but it quickly grew on me. It's snappy and satisfying, and the bosses having the gear system too is neat.
Among the high-fidelity entries (7, 8, Rockman & Forte, 11), Rockman & Forte is still at the top for me, with 11 behind it, even if it feels half-assed at times. The way it just kind of ends is a bummer. It feels like there was meant to be more but they just ran out of time.
Half-way through hard mode.
