what a game. I only found out today that Guy in Final Fight (and Street Fighter) is based on Guy Picciotto from Fugazi.
Of course there are also the Axl and Slash characters.
Can 2D scrolling beat em ups please make a comeback? What is your favourite? I would say a tie between FF, Turtles and The Punisher.
The Dungeons and Dragons RPG hybrids were good too. And Cadillacs and Dinosaurs (although not enough dinosaurs for my liking).
