Mars Matrix is my all time favorite. In fact, it inspired me to make a shmup of my own!

Link.

And no, just because I used "matrix" in the title doesn''t mean I''m trying to clone Mars Matrix (just incase anybody wondered).

ikaruga is a fantastic throwback to the genre. My personal faves have to be....

Type-R
Life Force
Ikari Warriors (NES game)


Whoops forgot to answer the question. Personally I think the reason Ikaruga is such a good game is because it's so deviously simple. I'd say introducing some extras may enhance the game for some, but I'd suggest a mode that was more for the purist.

Zero Wing for its bad translation!

-In 2101, War was beginning-
Captain: "What happen !!"
Mechanic: "Somebody set us up the bomb !!"
Mechanic: "We get signal ."
-CATS'' holopicture appears-
CATS: "How are you gentlemen !!"
CATS: "All your base are belong to us !!"
CATS: "You are on the way to destruction ."
CATS: "You have no chance to survive make your time ."
CATS: "Ha ha ha !!"
-CATS'' holopicture fades out-
Mechanic: "Captain !!"
Captain: "Take off every ''Zig'' !!"
Captain: "Move ''Zig'' ."
Captain: "You know what you doing ."
Captain: "For great justice ."
-Fade out-

Tyrian and Raptor rocked my world.
Aero Fighters and Musha Aleste are also pretty cool.

oh snap forgot about life-force, that was hot. R-type had dope graphics and that phat full level boss. Ikari Warriors just had the ILL joystick it wasn''t that cool though. Ikaruga? never played it
