A Closer Look at the Mega Man That Almost Was

Mega Man X was almost a first person shooter. For one brief moment, Capcom was considering rebooting the Blue Bomber in a way very similar to Metroid. After all, if it worked for Samus, it should work for Megaman, right?

Saya can smile and interact with people around it.  At the same time, however, there's something missing - something integral which all of these constructs grasp at, but can't quite reach. Something fundamentally human which we've not yet been able to replicate in an artificial context.
