DescriptionThis genre includes action games that focus on close-combat fighting, unarmed or using melee weapons; the emphasis is on executing precise moves (punches, kicks, etc.) when facing opponents who usually use similar tactics against the playable character. Characteristic for these games is reliance on martial art techniques. Fighting games are traditionally divided into two broad categories: Versus fighters and Beat 'em 'ups / Brawlers.
