I ended up getting Megaman 7 and Breath of Fire 1.

Man, I honestly never really liked Megaman bosses. I'm not the biggest "learn their pattern" gamer. The snow boss kicked my ass and gave me a gameover. Shot the guy many many times and only managed just a bit over half his health, while he was wasting away mine in no time. I've always found the Megaman boss patterns to hard to read, or too hard to avoid even when I've figured them out. I don't get how people dodge every attack a boss does. This doesn't apply to every boss in the series, just...most. Some like Bubble Man or Chill Penguin for example are pretty damn easy.

Is Megaman 7 known as an easy Megaman or a hard one? And fucked if I know how to avoid getting hit by that sled snowman guy in the snow stage from MM7. He was getting guaranteed hits on me.

Breath of Fire has a strange, very steep difficulty. The game seems pretty dead simple and possibly designed for kids, but I noticed minutes into the game it gets much tougher.

Both games have that Megaman X style music to em. I used to feel a bit strange about it but have come to love it. I thought that new Capcom sound was maybe a bit too midi sounding? But I learned to love it over the years and it sounds awesome when I hear it.

Cool to play BOF after like 20 yrs and MM7 for the "first" time!
