Gaming Education: Action 101

GameCrate: "Back when arcades and the NES were at their peak, beat ‘em ups and hack-and-slash games were among the most entertaining titles you could play. These action games offered intuitive gameplay and were easy to pick up. Games like Golden Axe and Battletoads were challenging, no doubt, but they were inviting nonetheless thanks to their easy-to-grasp controls and mechanics. Even though a few decades have passed since those golden years, action games have remained largely the same in concept. Let’s take a look at some worthy beat ‘em ups and hack-and-slash games that you should play without hesitation." (Arcade, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, PC, PS3, PS4, Retro, Strider, TMNT Turtles in Time Arcade, Wii, Xbox 360, Xbox One)
