      Alright Greg, great stuff man but I have a few issues as a huge beat em up fan that could be easily fixed by making it a top 12.

      Final Fight isn't that good. I know it is kind of an iconic game, but Aliens vs Predator is so much better than it in so many ways.

      Your lack of the game Vendetta makes me want to cry. Vendetta is such a good beat em up. I'm sure you have played it, but if you haven't go check it out. 4 fighters with distinctly different styles, different weapon pick ups and some of the craziest boss fights you'll ever see.

      Love captain commando - such an underrated game.
      Knights of the Round is so good - and features a leveling system - so much fun to play.

      Really great list - from one arcade fighter fan to clearly another - this is terrific, but check out Vendetta - I'm serious, I can't fathom how it wasn't on the list, unless you never played it.
