PostSubject: Beat'em ups.   Mon 27 Aug 2007, 2:00 am

Me and my friend are always talking about how we miss this Genre to death. Personally, I think it should come back, sprites and all. What do you guys think?

Some of my faves include:

Brawl Brothers/Rushing Beat Ran (SNES)
River City Ransom (NES)
Final Fight (SNES)
Final Fight 2 (SNES)
Battletoads & Double Dragon (SNES)
TMNT IV: Turtles In Time (SNES/Arcade)
P.O.W. (NES)
Captain Commando (SNES/Arcade)
Astro Boy: The Omega Factor (GBA)
The Simpsons (Arcade)

There are more, but, right now, it's 2 in the morning and I can't really think straight.

I love those games! Smile

specially because I used to play with my bro, and most of them are cooperative... Razz

this genre is still alive... but it has become less popular... Sad
I guess it is because the designers may have decided more people searches something more "challenging"... than just go and break the face of everyone in front of you... Rolling Eyes

in your list, you can still download for your arcade emulators:
Golden Axe
Alien vs Predator
Dungeons and Dragons
Punisher

those are legendary games... geek

What about Streets of Rage 2? Best beat-em-up ever, in my opinion.

Yeah, when I had MAME, I used to play TMNT IV ALL DAY.

And, yeah, I totally forgot about D&D and Punisher. OMG, that game was sick!

And yes, Streets of Rage was a sick Beat'em up as well.

Yeah, every game that seems to come out is either a FPS or a game that's literally, a complete rip-off of GTA.

Oh yeah forgot about D&D...back when it came out on Saturn and I bought it, people from my school actually have to make a line up to come over my home to play it(since everyone only bought playstation...)

And yeah when it was on MAME, I used to go online and play with others a lot every night and skipped a lot of college classes because of that Twisted Evil

It was simple back then. Now, there is all this other stuff that's like "huh?" I don't even remember half the crap that the DS one had.

I used to play it, but, after a while, I fell out of it. After that, I would only really play it with my then girlfriend.

It is pretty good. It's also slightly comedic.

But, yeah, thank god you didn't say Beat Down, or whatever the name of that game was. That was terrible.

Actually, would we be able to classify Gunstar Heroes as a beat-em-up as well?

God, that game is so badass.

There's an upcoming beat-em-up game for XBLA called Castle Crashers. It looks very similar to Guardian Heroes in terms of game play.
