    Garegga on the Saturn tops every shooter on the psx. The only one I wouldn't want to be without is the Japanese Raiden Project. Everything else on the Sony platforms I could give up. PC-Engine beats Genesis and Jap 360 Is a modern classic. My 2 cents.

    Eventually, these all end up on PC.

    I confess to owning all the cross-platform titles on Saturn and the Playstation exclusives. But I did buy some titles for BOTH and was really surprised to see the likes of the Donpachi's were superior on PS1...
    Yeah, In the Hunt and Strikers 1945 II are also superior on PSX, probably some others.

    360.

    Has great versions of most of my favorite shmups, plus online leaderboards and in most cases replay uploads/downloads too.

    This is such a hard question. Ok. Here goes. #1 would be Sega Saturn... Here's why: http://www.racketboy.com/retro/sega/...ps-2d-shooters

    Basically, all I need to say is Batsugun, too...

    #2 is Dreamcast... I mean, Mars Matrix, Ikaruga, Gunbird 2, and all the late era/indie shooters too.

    #3 TG16 - Soldier series, GunHed, Winds/Lords of Thunder, etc

    Hon mention: Sega Genesis. I am just getting into this now actually. Absolutely loving MUSHA, Super Fantasy Zone, (thank you Wii VC) Thunderforce series, Truxton, & other Toaplan games.


    Edit: PS - PSX and PS2 obviously have a great selection, PS2 espec if you like the Danmaku type of shmup. I just didn't think of it right away because to me by the time those consoles came out my initial fever for those games mellowed out a bit... the excitement wasn't the same.

    Toss up between PS1/Saturn.


    Both have must have games that look amazing in RGB/Tate on a CRT.

    Lot of good games on PS2, but not liking the 480i.

    What's your favourite platform for Shmups?

    JAMMA. Not being a smart assed curmudgeon, either.
    tate mode by default,
    240p, no emu/port niggles (which really effect twitch games), and dat G•Darius, son. PSX rev is a fish stick, to the JAMMA rev's tsukiji sashimi.

    The PS2. Lots of great shooters that can be picked up on the cheap via compilations as well as some others. The backwards compatibility with PSX only sweetens the deal.

    I really want to play some of the Saturn shmups, but they're out of my budget range.

    Yeah Saturn wins by a country mile, and in a close second would have to be Dreamcast. Hell they are still coming out with Dreamcast shmups.

    I have a Saturn that sits next to the Neo. I definitely want to get some imported games, so I can see the great shmups on the system.

    My personal favorite would have to be the Genesis / Mega Drive.

    But I do agree that the Dreamcast / 360 / and PCE have a damn fine line up. Not to mention of course the MVS.

    The SNES is crap for shmups. Does it have some good ones? Yeah it does - but not too many to be honest.. a lot of potentials but I think the hardware was just too slow to make a good fast action shmup.

    I can remember quite a few, UN Squadron, R-type 3, Super Aleste, Axelay, Parodius etc.

    The issue I spose is that as you say the SNES wasn't as well suited for fast action so it tended towards more tactical/atmospheric shoot em ups so it depends a lot on your taste. Personally dispite owning a lot of them back in the day a lot of the Megadrive shooters for me lacked polish, the Thunderforce games especially always came across as looking to throw everything and the kitchen sink into the mix without really having finesse of the best SNES titles.

    Having had the opportunity to play many Genesis and SNES shmups lately, I'm going to revise my opinion on the SNES. For example, I actually prefer Space Megaforce to MUSHA, and I'm also a big fan of UN Squadron and Axelay. There are a handful of great ones on both systems. The Genesis line up has more depth but you cannot ignore the quality of a select few on the SNES.

    SNES is an underrated system for shooters IMO. I had a lot of fun playing UN squadron and axelay back in the day. No system will ever beat the Saturn though. Radiant Silvergun, soukyugurentai, and battle garegga are the father, son, and holy ghost of shooters. Simply awesome!
