5 Classic Beat Em Up Arcade Games

5 Classic Beat Em Up Arcade Games


Many people who went to arcades growing up during the 1990s may have played awesome multiplayer games with their siblings and their friends.  Beat Em Up games were very popular in arcades because they offered an experience that home consoles of the time just couldn't bring.  These are the beat em' up games that I remember playing when I went to the arcades.

The Simpsons Arcade

The Simpsons Arcade was a game where people could play as their favorite Simpson's character on an adventure to save Maggie, who has been kidnapped.  This is probably the most nostalgic arcade game for me because I've watched the show just about everyday.  Favorite character to play as: Bart Simpson.

X-Men Arcade

X-Men Arcade has brought characters from the X-Men universe to arcades where up to 6 players could play at the same time playing as their favorite X-Men characters.  After Seeing 6 players playing this game at once was a sight to see for me and I had to play this game for myself.  Favorite character to play as: Wolverine.

Aliens vs Predator Arcade

Aliens vs Predator Arcade was a game that was popular in arcades because the game brought two iconic sci-fi monsters fighting each other.  I've seen the Alien and Predator movies at a young age, which are great movies, I had to play this game no matter what. Players could play as the humans, which one of them resembles Arnold Schwarzenegger from the Predator movie, and could play as Predators with different attacks and abilities.  Favorite character to play as: Predator Hunter.

TMNT Turtles in Time Arcade

TMNT Turtles in Time Arcade was a game that has brought fans of the TV show together where they could play as their favorite TMNT character.  I've been a fan of TMNT as a child, so playing this game was a hit for me. The game was a 4 player game and it was a no-brainer to make a great 4 player game for arcades.  Favorite character to play as: Michelangelo.

Rampage World Tour Arcade

Rampage World Tour Arcade was a game where players could choose as monsters that resembled Godzilla and King Kong wrecking havoc to major cities. I remember seeing the old Godzilla and King Kong movies as a child.  I was happy to play as giant monsters that resembled classic iconic monsters because I felt in control destroying cities.  Kicking, jumping, and eating people was a way to go to for this multiplayer game.  Favorite character to play as: Lizzie.

I love video games, especially the retro ones because I grew up playing those ones. A lot of memories and frustrations with some of the NES games, but it was fun enjoying those games. Video games are one of my passions because there are so many games out there that can be played and each one has a uniqueness to it.
