    Like Streets of Rage and the such, as they're side scrollers.

    So what do we consider to be the best ever beat em up? i'm going for Capcom vs SNK 2 on PS2 :)

    My favorite games fall in the console style RPG genre (more story and defined characters, less micromanagement). On the flip side though, a bad RPG is the worst kind of game.

    Got anything to recommend aside from Mario stuff, Chrono Trigger and Pokemans for folks that despise necessary grinding and unavoidable random battles?

    What platform? For the 360 I'd recommend Mass Effect and Fallout 3. I haven't played any on the PS3 (but of course they had Fallout 3 to). FF12 was actually really good, and I don't think you ever had to grind unless you did the monster hunts. Despite what people say I still love Chrono Cross, which did avoid having to grind and random battles. Otherwise, most of the RPGs I really liked had random battles or required some level of grinding.

    I'm specifically after console-only Japanese stuff. Age doesen't bother me and i'm good for any platform outside of PS2, PS3, PSP and 180.

    I'm up on western RPGs and those are PC territory when I buy them.
