    There are tons of good shmups, but here's my list of preferred Genny shmups:
    Thunder Force 3
    Truxton
    Raiden Trad
    Sagaia
    Hellfire
    MUSHA
    Lightening Force
    Biohazard Battle
    Gaiares

    I don't own Eliminate Down, but from playing it on emulation, it rocks hard. I will never be able to afford a real copy however

    Well, for some of us Americans, it's hard to switch, having grown up thinking of it as Lightening Force, which admittedly is damn retarded. Melf should start tracking down the "marketing wizards" who were responsible for all these pointless name changes and demand to know what gives!

    The fact that the word "Lightning" was spelled wrong is astounding in itself, but I really should be calling it Thunder Force IV myself. XD

    Sadly though, because I grew up with the game, and because my copy has the box and instructions that plow the phrase "Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar" on every surface imaginable, it's only by such a sad twist of fate that I may very well still consider it "Lightening Force" as a result.

    Damn Marketing people at Sega!

    I don't think it's a case of a word being spelled wrong. "Lightening" is a word, and when used with its "To lessen the oppressiveness, trouble, or severity of" definition, it comes across more as someone trying to give the title a little more depth (instead of going with what sounded cooler).

    Point taken, I didn't even realize it until you put it that way, but I guess the whole theme with Thunder in the title had me thinking maybe that's what they intended, but somehow the title was spelled wrong or something.

    Either way, "Quest for the Darkstar" sounds like a badass subtitle.

    Just put your name in front of it to see what I mean:

    Milkymagic: Quest for the Darkstar!

    LOL. Yes, but what do we do with it once we have it?

    I'm sure this is an unpopular opinion, but my favorite Genesis "shoot-them-up" is Insector-X.

    You go on a quest? XD

    Good question, especially since you don't really do any "Questing" per say, but it's good for a laugh if anything.

    What's the Darkstar anyway?

    Well, Crosby, Stills, Nash, AND Young sang about it. And according to the Oracle, so did the Dead but I don't care for them, and John Carpenter and the guy who wrote the original script for Alien made a film about it, but I think nowadays it's mainly just making skateboards.

    Probably the emo brother of Lonestar from Spaceballs.

    Yes, this definitely wins the "Fruitiest Shmup Name" award. Unfortunately, it's also plastered all over the game's box
