I agree with your points Chris, but In fairness I will point out that most beat em ups have both an amazingly complex plot, and require far more than simple pressing of rythm actions in time, not to mention some fantastic atmospheric battles.

this is why I myself have played beat em ups for many years (ever sinse the first releases of Mortal Kombat 1 and street fighter 2, both of which I played in the arcades), not really in order simply to do matches, but only for the battles, story and atmosphere of the game.

Indeed I frequently tried to complete the game on all characters just for the experience.

That is why those beat em ups with inaccessible story mode like the later mk games interest me far less.

Were there sufficient quantities of games I would find accessible on say a ps3 or xbox, I'd certainly buy one and play games such as street fighter and blazblu myself.

Beware the grue!
