Ikaruga for the win.

Although Gunbird is pretty fun, too.

5 Name: THRILLHO 05/01/05(Wed)13:14 ID:Heaven [Del]

The last one I played was Turrican II for C-64.
And that's my favorite (next to Turrican).

>>2 yes
>>5 Turrican is horizontal and not vertical ^^

Ikaruga is cool for sure. At first i wanted to write Layer Section/Ikaruga.

I see you! Also, Imperishable Night rocks.

Sister de la Barrage is actually one of my favourite shooters I've played lately. Mouse controls are a much cooler idea than one would first assume.

13 Name: THRILLHO 2005-06-01 09:53 ID:/91a4Qtm

I would like to start the "schmup is a stupid word; they are called shooters" flame-war now.

14 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-06-01 10:26 ID:mTye0lXo

"Shooter" is acceptable. "Shoot-em-up" is too, but a pain to say and write. "Schmup" is a Don Martin sound effect.

15 Name: THRILLHO 2005-06-01 16:38 ID:RNi8gRrr

I use shooters for games like R-TYPE & Parodius and the like.
I use shoot-em-ups for games like Turrican.

16 Name: THRILLHO 2005-08-26 10:33 ID:vNrURh34

I just call things vertical shooters, horizontal shooters, or whatever. I guess my favorite vertical shooter would be Dodonpachi. I tried getting into Ikaruga once, but I usually get too caught up in chaining well to actually learn the patterns right.

I personally love Mars Rising and Deimos Rising. They're vertical shooters for the Mac OS. You'll need OS9(Classic) if you want to play Mars Rising, but Deimos Rising was included with some iMacs, and a demo can be downloaded on http://www.ambrosiasw.com

The first Gigawing. Initially, I liked Ikaruga more -- but now I think its concept is slightly over-engineered. Yes, I suck at that game, how did you know?

19 Name: THRILLHO 2005-11-03 05:34 ID:8VmOCret

I agree with 13 and second the motion for a flame-war.
I would also like to add that saying "tate" in an English sentence is stupid when there's already the perfectly good English word "vertical."

20 Name: THRILLHO 2005-11-04 03:30 ID:Heaven

DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou is the all-time high.

21 Name: THRILLHO 2005-11-06 06:55 ID:3mPaHPZU

Yes, but then it's unclear whether you're playing a true vertical shooter, or a horizontal one with leet display hax.

22 Name: THRILLHO 2005-11-07 17:29 ID:iy2rvcar

I'm surprised no one's mentioned rRootage:

age for some more (free) Mac or Emulator shooters
