    Had my doubts…I felt that SOR4 May spoil the legacy and I have been skeptical and resistant to buying..
    After watching your excellent breakdown I have just placed my order and after 25 years I am excited to return to the Streets of Rage!

    17:06 whoa careful there underestimating the GODLIKE and actually underrated imo Final Fight… some enemies get off the ground at randomly varying speeds, something lacking in SoR games including 4 for instance, and they most certainly do have fairly complex 'footsies' patterns eg 2P/J who will just dodge straight through you at times if he feels like it, or wait patiently just outside of range. Yes enemies like Andore are more straightforward in their approach but even there the amount of time they choose to wait out of range varies a LOT, causing many a missed and punished fly kick. Final Fight 2024 (revealed in the recent Capcom leak) will hopefully surpass SoR4 but until then yes it is the greatest brawler of all time imo. Top contenders from the past for me are Final Fight (not the bad sequels though), SoR2, Sengoku 3 and Guardian Heroes.

    Also, surely it isnt just me who is an infighting troll in these games… some coverage of in-fghting would be appreciated. If you ever feel you are growing bored with one of these games… try it!

    Axel was always my favorite in 1, 2 and 3. And he'll clearly be my favorite in 4 when I get it.

  10. Márcio Pinho says:

    I just have this to say: Welcome back Streets of Rage. You have been missed!

  11. A Dink says:

    If I had only two games to play streets of rage and pitfall probably the best two games ever produced

  12. RickyNerd says:

    I am really loving it on switch

  13. Ukyo82 says:

    Cadillacs and Dinosaurs was most popular beat em up here, always very crowded on arcades and from earliest total beat em up hits was Growl

  14. Delightful Squirtle says:

    man, this vid really makes me appreciate SoR4 way more than I already did.

  15. Yash Nirbhavane says:

    Playing double dragon with my cousins in the summer vacation are some of my best childhood memories

    recently brought and completed it and I can't say a single bad thing about it. It's everything it had to be. These guys know how to please the fans.
