There was a time before the battle royale, the survival game, the FPS - and it involved smacking people with pipes and eating food off the floor. The beat-’em-up was once queen of all - though only for a short, golden era.
Part one looks at the rise of the genre, along with a few examples of companies who really ran with it. Part two will follow, and will conclude.

As a kid they used to be my favorite type of game next to f*ghting games so I'd try them all out. Streets of Rage is probably 2nd due to the music.

Man this was my favorite genre as a youth and I just haven't liked how it has transitioned to 3d... DMC... Ninja Gaiden... just don't hit the same for me

And unfortunately this is a genre where there aren't many devs making old school 2d style beat-em-ups like people regularly do with platformers. Tragic.
