So you get knocked out in one hit by the first random Proud Boy enemy?
As we're on the topic, don't any of you ven think of getting River City Ransom Underground. It's shit. Give it a pirate if you absolutely must but don't come crying that you wasted your time.
Cultured gentlemen play the REAL sequels:

Although I wish those lazy fucks would at least update the sprites to 16 bit.

It's like... a beat-'em-up... with raid bosses!

How about... a beat-'em-up... where you are Antifa?

"It's MA'AM! *punch*"
You would have to play multiplayer, where you and at least ten of your friends would beat up a single person in each level. The Black Lives Matter version you would beat up homosexuals.

Does anyone know of any "open world" type games, or semi-open games, that precede River City Ransom? I'm trying to think of some. I assume the PC has loads, but I'm thinking of consoles. So not counting Brogue and shit like that. Earliest console open world games. I guess Zelda.
Considering your avatar, you'd probably love this game.

Looks like it has too much story and too little combat. Also 2deep4u edgyshit about growing up. I can get much better jap delinquents from my fapanese animes. Crows does the whole "cycle of maturation" thing very well without skimping on the violence or trying to be depressing about it.

I would love to see more beat em ups take a note from classic kunio/rcr and japanese delinquent culture, but it's a subgenre with a tiny audience. Beat em ups on their own have very few fans left. Hell, I wouldn't mind if someone would make a beat em up that uses american or eurotrash high-school gangs as the inspiration.

All I remember about Chrono Cross is it had a hot chick in it, but I don't think she gets naked.

Cross is a great game but a poor sequel. I take it on those terms. I can enjoy Cross while accepting its flaws.
I think playing it a second time as an adult and making those connections I missed (Everything in Chronopolis, Porre) made me appreciate it more. They even reference the reptites surviving and evolving into the dragonians of CC. Play the DS port of CT and then Cross back to back, it’s a great way to really connect it together. Also RIP Prometheus. :(

Good pick Mad Bum. My only thing with that game was there was a mechanic or two that I didn’t understand and the way the game after a set point. I had more stuff I wanted to do but got locked into the ending, it needed a new game plus.

It's a very arbitrary genre definition. If RCR counts, so should Rogue, Adventure and a good few hundred CRPGs.
