I'm honestly not a big fan of Double Dragon, or the first Streets of Rage. I only listed them because I couldn't think of any other Beat 'em ups that I found enjoyable.

I'm surprised you've found any beat 'em ups enjoyable. That lifeless, boring, cliche genre should be renamed Bore 'ya 2death or Repetitive ina' can.

I could say the same about any genre you like, but I won't because I'm not 4 years old. <_<

I can't even think of 10. :P Top 3 though:
1. Ninja Baseball Batman
2. TMNT lV: Turtles in Time
3. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

It's no opinion! Fact: Ninja Baseball Batman is the BEST side scrolling beat'em up you've never heard of! Everyone watch a video of it on YouTube right now, so much effing charm! It's not just ridiculous it's super fun to play too.

It looks like anything anyone says makes them look four years old.

Nope, just you. Because you're the only one consistantly acting like a child. If you don't like a genre, ignore it. You don't have to hate and ridicule it, just like you've talked down to others for doing to your favorite genres. That's common sense. Use it.

In Mickeymac's defense, you bash this genre for being repetitive yet you play Monster Hunter which seems like it can get pretty damn repetitive, (keep in mind I enjoy MH too, :P)

I don't see the point in coming to this thread if all you want to do is flame people by insulting a genre they obviously enjoy. In a thread for Top 10 Beat 'em Ups, why would you post here if you hate the genre and have nothing to contribute?

Sorry about that, on topic now. I have to say, I don't play that many beat 'em ups so here's what I can think of:
1. Streets of Rage 2
2. Final Fight
3. TMNT IV: Turtles in Time
4. Double Dragon
5. Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder

And I did. It was very impressive. I didn't play it with friends, so that's probably why I wouldn't call it the best beat 'em up ever, but it's top 5 at least. My list is now as follows:

8. Final Fight

Yeah, pretty much every beat'em up is 50% better with friends.
You sure played that fast. o.o Glad you liked it! The whole game is a blast. I played through it with my brother at an arcade and it was massive fun!

I'm surprised you had a real machine to play! My only problem with the game was that it's a little short (6 stages, none of which are as long as I expected), and the final boss is a chump. Also, it doesn't change the standard Beat 'em up formula, but what it does, it does very well, and I'm glad I played it. Thanks for telling us about it.

Having a mellow tone and using logic to discuss doesn't declare talking down to anyone. Plus, the only people I bothered discussing with, were people who had an arrogant, narrow minded outlook on a specific game in a specific genre.

Unless you'd like to pinpoint exactly where I talked down to someone disliking a genre I do enjoy (I like every genre except beat 'em ups), then you'll have room to talk. Beyond that, I wasn't talking to you or looking for an argument, so if anything you're the immature one here.

Excluding your history of unnecessary profanity towards users. Real mature!
