"Owning a Sega Mega Drive as a child secured one fact: That I would be playing a metric ton of side scrolling brawlers. Golden Axe, Shinobi and Alien Storm are all very much part of my gaming childhood and these were great games but one game stood above all these. The fantastic Streets of Rage. The first moment I stuffed my copy into the slot I was instantly gripped by the scrolling text that emblazoned the screen. Being 5 years old and being told that I had to clean up these streets was really excited so I picked my character and got started." Gregor Garden, Parable.
