Hmmm, I kinda agree with those definitions on Wiki (though I don't think objective definitions of genres exists, when it comes to detailing). It makes sense (beat'EM up, implying THEM, as in shoot'EM up).

Fighting games, beat'em ups and hack'n'slash would fit under the close combat banner. Seperating Fighting Games and Beat'em ups while putting Hack'n'slash as a general sub-genre doesn't make sense, imo. A genre should tell a person what you'll spend most of the time doing in a game. In Moonstone it's hacking and slashing. In Double Dragon it's beating people up, street fighting style. In Mortal Kombat, it's one on one fighting. So let's make a new main-genre, called Close Combat.
