not a traditional beat ems up but I think Capcom's Zelda Oracle of seasons/time were fantastic both in fast paced action and well paced, clever puzzles

>> No.7103885

That's not even remotely a beat em up

>> No.7103890

You beat monsters up so it counts, don't you dare argue.

is there a beat em up related to Fight n' Rage? I'm talking retro beat em ups with a similar style, fast hitting combos, exciting air juggles it must've copied something before it right?

>> No.7103986

literally anything from ~1995 onwards

>> No.7104008

Fight N Rage is basically Cadillacs & Dinosaurs with some elements from Streets of Rage and more combos. There's Battle Circuit and Punisher too

Final Fight.
What a perfect classic and a beautiful game for 89!

I enjoyed how advanced they later became compared to Konami’s meme games like Simpsons, X-men and Turtles, but you gotta give it up for the game that kicked it all off for Capcom.

Did they ever put a "Tekken Force" mode in to any of their 2D fighting games? SF, Crossover or otherwise?

>> No.7104946

play beat em ups for score or speed or don't play them at all

Come play at fightcade 2

I do 1cc runs at max difficulty, but I'm from Brazil tho

>> No.7105495

Why is it Mystara which has RPG elements and an inventory system and can still be considered a beat em up but Zelda seasons cannot? Either they're both beat em ups or just call them action/adventures games.

>> No.7105510

Seasons is a top down action game where your goals are exploration and clearing dungeons.

Mystara's an action game that requires you to beat up enemies and not much else. If you continue to argue your point, I'm going to assume you aren't arguing in good faith and ignore the rest of your posts.

>> No.7105536

beat em ups are just bad and dry action rpgs to be honest with you. the AI is retarded and the bosses get creamed with cheese strats 9 outta 10 times. Plane shifting fucks mooks. It's sad.

You'll get a bigger challenge and more fun with FF8 bosses, no joke.

>> No.7105538

post a video of your Final Fight 1CC

>> No.7105551

Why yes I am a zoomer, how could you tell?

>> No.7105569

So they're both Action/adventure games. I knew it was one or the other.

>> No.7105571

FF8 is the one you can't grind in right?

>> No.7105572

Mystara has no real exploration to speak of.

This is my last response to you.

>> No.7105585

Nah action rpgs are like beat em ups with needless fluff, see the Ys games they're fairly decent beat em ups if you just play the boss rush yet drawn out boring shite if you play the main games

10/10 post

>> No.7105732

FF8 is legit and yes the enemies have level scaling and the gear system is very fixed, grinding doesn't do much, bosses can rape you if you don't have precise strategy and execute your order of attacks poorly

>> No.7105736

Ff8 is stupidly easy to break with junction system, but yes grinding technically does nothing as enemies get stronger at certain party averages

>> No.7105745

>spreading misinfo
Why u lying?
Ys Origins on nightmare has tons of things that insta kill you or two shot you easy, like the wandering knight guys, traps/spikes, lasers, etc. Same with Ys 1 and 2

>> No.7105750

>playing with the junction system
If you know the game well enough to break it, it's time to not use the junction system and see how it goes ;^)

junction system is for beginners, you should know that ....

>> No.7105765

>Ys Origins
confirmed epic taste, better than any arcade beat em up for sure

no problem dude

>> No.7105847

Cadillacs and Dinosaurs

>> No.7105890

So basically you want me to play a jrpg with attack and limit breaks, sounds super fucking exciting dude

>> No.7105929

>dude that's not a beat em up
>it's if i say so beat 'em ups suck anyway let's tall about gay elf instead!
why are these nigs so stupid

>> No.7106270

The wandering knights guys that you can casually circle around and be completely safe from? Vast majority of traps don't instakill you, in fact I can't think of a single one that does this. Even if they did it wouldn't matter, game's full of retarded meaningless fluff fights that can be cheesed in a ton of different ways and exist only to take up your time, and they're not even the worst offender since the game has lengthy unskippable cutscenes and other crap. The only way to play it is time attack, there it turns into an actual video game

>> No.7106468

People barely distinguished fighting games from beat em ups back then and used the terms interchangeably even when Street Fighter 2 came out
