I thought Hack n' Slash was like Diablo or something? Are beat 'em ups and hack n' slashes the same thing? O_o; Too many genres and too many things changing... >_>;

People call Mass Effect an RPG and say it isn't a shooter. Don't bother, just go with it. I keep track of a few sub-genres but Hack n Slash games are no longer the Gauntlet and Diablo games since only 1 of those is still running. Diablo's also more dungeon crawlerish than anything else, more focused on loot and building up your equipment more-so than most of the games mentioned in this topic.
Hoo Haa!!! I has Signature!!!

Devil may cry 1 'Got nothing to complain about this one' Game was so damn awesome, great enemies and horror atmosphere/soundtrack.

Ninja gaiden black, loved this one to death on Xbox. '2 and 3 sucked so hard that i rented 2, didn't even bother to complete 3''

DMC3: special edition 'Only really liked playing as Vergil, Dante felt as if he had no mass behind his hits and just felt odd to me. Vergil played more like DMC1 Dante and also the enemie design wasn't that good'

GOW1 'Only one in the series i liked'

Bayonetta, Sold it though because it just didn't like the femenine story of the game to replay it again. Was nice to play it once though.

Metal Gear Rising seems awesome to me though.

Diablo is often considered a "dungeon crawler". Hack n slash evolved from D&D style games to a term used for certain third-person action games. Beat m ups and Hack n Slashs are very similar, but not always the same. BMUs (or brawlers) typically had numerous identical enemies with simple melee combat and little platforming (something you'd see in an arcade). HnSs had more of a focus on swordplay and using other weapons to fight enemies, and usually had more platforming than a typical BMU. Nowadays, just about all games classified as HnS are based on the style that the first Devil May Cry invented, with a high emphasis on combos and varied weapons, a sub-genre refered to as "Extreme Combat". Other games that followed this trend were the revived Ninja Gaiden series and the God of War series.
