i wish we were still in the era of the scrolling beat em up

(, Thu 26 Apr 2012, 9:58, archived)
scrolling beat em ups still exist, like Castle Crashers
but they've mostly evolved now into things like God Of War & Bayonetta

yeah, it seems they're mostly downloadable titles now.
i like castle crashers and the scott pilgrim game

I'm racking my brains for a game i used to love as kid,
arcade game, side scrolling, shooter rather than beat-em-up, 2 player, something to do with Tanks, you could jump in the tanks, it was an incredible game.Me and my brother spent days of our lives in the arcade at Laser quest playing it.

I never really played arcade video games. I used to do the 2p shovey shelf thing instead.
Mostly I used to love Jetpac and Death Race on the spectrum. I played them endlessly.

i once won what appeared to be a rolex from the shove machines,
it was a plastic knock off and i lost it in the Sea in Margate.

Imagine Konami made a side-scrolling beat 'em up of the Avengers? How fucking sweet would that be?

it was one of my favourite games along with tiny toon adventures

Iron Man was way cooler than those other pricks in that game.

The only way to win is to not play
