Tired of this button mashing tournament games like SF v TK or MV vs Capcom, what ever happen to games like the Bouncer, The Warriors, River City Ransom etc. ? All this crap is boring, I wanna bash a dudes head in for no reason, not fight someone until the 99 seconds are up.

Uh, you're trolling, right? I really hope you are.

Play MK and turn the round timer off (I always turn it off). Then you can do more than bash someones head in.

I think the fighting genre is in need of more western fighting games. MK is the only one still around.

Skullgirls just came out and is probably the best fighter the west has been able to offer.

I'll all for brawlers like The Bouncer and Yakuza. But I still prefer my 2D fighters I play on the PC and PS2.

It's arguably a bit of a stretch but WWE Brawl seems to have shades of this. Or at least it sounds like it does by the title.

I want more Streets of Rage 4 with more of its great house music pumping in the background.

Sengoku 4 needs to come out. After playing Sengoku 3, no other beat em up comes close. Come on Noise Factory

I thought the fighting was pretty decent but the severe lack of enemy diversity turned me off real quick.
