I've noticed the "Old Days" series of threads we had lately. About toys we had (or still do), and old cartoons. So here is my "Old Days" thread.
I'm sure everyone has played a beat-em-up. Just take your character, and beat the crap out of people. Why? Probably a story somewhere, but who cares? These games are fun by yourself, but wondeful with a friend. Kick ass together.
Or kick each other's ass if the game allows it. Beat-em-ups, my favorite type of game. My favorite of all of them?
Streets of Rage 2 on the Sega Genesis. I believe this is the first one I ever played. My friend and I would beat that game EVERY TIME we hung out. It never got old. Throw one guy into another, and hit someone else with a pipe. I still love that game, or course.
Try and remember some of the games you played as a kid, mabye you still play them.
