http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FightingGame http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BeatEmUp Hello again everyone and welcome to a topic that was long overdue, in here we get to enjoy talking about our favorite Brawlers & Fighters! I mean really I'm surprised I didn't do this one sooner as like Shmups I'm a huge fan of both genres myself and unlike Shmups chances are many to almost all of you have brushed into them and didn't even realize it. I mean you have you're standard 2D Fighters (Street Fighter, King of Fighters, Guilty Gear), 3D Fighters (Virtua Fighter, Tekken, Dead or Alive), and Beat em Ups (Double Dragon, Final Fight, Streets of Rage) that you may have heard of but the depth of these genres are often tied together and cross over with different sub genres and elements appearing in other games. You got you're Mascot/Platform Fighters (Super Smash Bros, Rival of Aether, Onimusha Blade Warriors), the Hack n' Slash games where you use weapons (Golden Axe, Dynasty Warriors, The King of Dragons) and Spectacle Fighters/Character Action Games (Devil May Cry, No More Heroes, Bayonetta). Not to mention the differences between Fighters such as "Anime" Fighters (Guilty Gear, Blazblue, Melty Blood) and those mentioned above, along with Fighters that mainly use Weapons (Soul Calibur, Samurai Shodown, Weaponlord). Even some of you're favorite games could be considered Fighters or Beat em Ups in such a way like the Diablo Series, Kingdom Hearts, even the Batman Arkham Series has it's roots in Brawlers of the past if you couldn't tell. With these two genres having such a broad meaning throughout the years this is why I made this topic if only to not making stagnant topics covering each individual series and game (As that would drive everyone crazy and clutter the forums), so for all you fans of Fists, Blades, and seemingly endless armies of baddies to take down this place is for you. So share some of your favorite games of these Genres and discuss, what you like about them, what you don't, anything regarding some of our favorite classics and current games, even upcoming ones that you can come across. ARE YOU READY? FIGHT!
