@extremeradical:  Yes that was a great game, I guess this a is a more "Best of Classics" Poll.

Well I've played them all, with the exception of Alien vs. Predator and Streets of Rage 2, and all things considered, I like River City Ransom.

Yes. The Warriors definitely is the best beat 'em up. Out of the games listed, TMNT also.

I chose SoR 2, that game was awesome! 
 
That said, my personal fav was always Maximum Carnage

Captain America is probably the one I had the most fun with in the arcades with the Simpsons right behind it.  I like TMNT but couldn't get too far.  As for the rest, well I usually stuck to licenced games for this genre.
