Just how many Mega Man games are there?

Here's a little trivia for you. How many games have there been in the Mega Man series? That should be an easy one, I mean, how hard could it be to count up a few measly sequels? If you're stumped, I've got the answer after the jump.

Okay, I lied. I have no idea how many Mega Man games there are. Sure, I loved the Blue Bomber back in the day, but somewhere after the fortieth game I tend to lose count. If you checked with the Guinness World Record Gamer's Edition, it would tell you that there are 46. What's fascinating is that Capcom knows that there are more, they just aren't too sure exactly how many others they made. If I had to guess I would say that there were.....well, I think Vegeta sums it up best.

If you think you know each and every Mega Man game that has ever existed, then head over to Capcom and let them know. Seriously, they're really asking for help on this one. If you're the first one to nail down all of the titles, you'll get something special.
