Mega Man explains Nietzsche

No, you didn't miss a deeper point to Mega Man - his battles with the Robot Masters and Dr Wily didn't hold a hidden meaning concerning your existence and existential reality. At least, we're pretty sure it didn't.

Rather, the chaps at Wisecrack have used the blue-suited robotic hero to tap into the depths of some of Nietzsche's more complicated thoughts in the latest episode of their 8-bit Philosophy series.

Delving into the meaning of expressions such as "Time is a flat circle" - recently popularised by HBO's tremendous True Detective - Mega Man et al help demonstrate the applications of Nietzsche's thinking through a series of narrated battles.

Now we think about it, replaying the levels in order to relive the experiences of a structured game, maybe Mega Man does have some link to philosophy after all... We'll let you watch the video and decide for yourself.
