Voting Thread

Polls will close February 23rd at 3:59am GMT.
It it acceptable to both post new lists and edit current ones up to this point.


Voting rules:

00. If you haven't participated before, read the Background section in the following post before proceeding any further.

01. Use the following vote format, including brackets:
    [integer score 1 to 25] [first game title]
    [integer score 1 to 25] [second game title]

      etc.

A single ballot is worth a single point of influence, and the numbers you give are used to establish what fraction of that point goes to each game. Larger values = more weight, so a simple ranked list should follow this format:
    [25] [Favorite]
    [24] [Second Favorite]
    ... etc ...
    [2] [24th Favorite]
    [1] [25th Favorite]

Additionally, to ensure that a list must at least somewhat resemble a top 25, it must add up to at least 4 times the value of the highest number present (so, for example, a list starting in 25 must add up to at least 100). Note that lists do not need to start with 25, end with 1, or be totally linear - beyond this ruling, you are free to adjust them as you see fit. An explanation of the score calculation can be found here.

02. You must vote for exactly 25 games. Your list can contain the games you think are the best overall, the most influential, the most personally enjoyable, etc. If you are eligible to vote under rule 00 but still can't come up with 25 games, you have a month to try and fill in the gaps if you so desire.

03. Shmups released in calendar year 2013 are not eligible for consideration.

04. Don't vote for games you haven't played.

05. Please be specific when voting for ports, or different games share the same title. Some versions are similar enough to count as the same game, but others are counted separately due to significant differences (e.g. Gradius III or UN Squadron). In the case of games like Salamander/Life Force, both region and platform may be important. Votes that do not specify platform will be assumed to be for the arcade/other original release, or in isolated cases the most well-known version (e.g. [Zanac] will be considered a vote for Zanac NES). Be careful with notation too, as [Slap Fight MD] is not considered the same thing as [Slap Fight (MD)]. If in doubt, it's always better to specify (or ask/check a previous years' results).

This time around, all versions of Mushihimesama Futari, Deathsmiles, ESPGaluda II and Blue Wish Resurrection will count as the same game, so you should only vote for one of these.

06. Vote for games, not compilations that include them. You can't vote for Raiden Fighters Aces but you can vote for each of the three games it contains.

07. Vote for games, not their different modes of play. Exceptions are granted for revisions of games that were sufficiently different from the original and received a standalone release.

08. No off-limits games! Please consult the chart below to see if your game is eligible for consideration:

No voting for:
    First-person perspective shooters (Doom, Solvalou)
      including Lightgun Shooters (House of the Dead, Rail Chase)
    Platform Shooters (Contra, Metal Slug)
    Rail Shooters (Rez, Panzer Dragoon)
    Gallery/Carnival Shooters (NAM-1975, Cabal)
    Action-adventure games (Alien Breed, Gauntlet, Legend of Zelda)

You may vote for games in any of the following categories:
    Non-scrolling playfield
      Fixed Shooters (Space Invaders, Galaga)
      Maze Shooters (Berserk, Tank Battalion)
      Field Shooters (Robotron, Smash TV, Geometry Wars)
        Field Shooters set on a cylinder or torus (Asteroids, Star Castle)
    Scrolling playfield
      Automatically scrolling shooters
        Vertically scrolling shooters (Xevious, Cybattler)
          including those set on a cylinder (Scion)
        Horizontally scrolling shooters (Gradius, R-Type)
          including those set on a cylinder (Fantasy Zone)
      Multi-directional auto-scrolling shooters set on a torus (Bosconian, Time Pilot '84)
    Manually advancing ("push-scroll") shooters
      Manually advancing horizontally scrolling shooters (In the Hunt, Mr. Heli no Daibouken)
        including those set on a cylinder (Defender)
      Manually advancing vertically scrolling shooters (OutZone, Ikari Warriors)
      Manually advancing multi-directional shooters (Granada, Kiki Kaikai, Bangai-O)
        including those set on a torus or infinite plane (Sinistar)
    Outliers or Grandfathered titles:
      Every Extend series
      Gyruss and clones
      Tempest, clones, and sequels
      Zaxxon

09. You may not vote for games that you do not believe are shmups. If you do not think that Granada is a shmup, you may not vote for it. However, as long as the votes of others respect the categories outlined in rule #07, your opinion shall have no bearing on the eligibility of other votes.

Background:

While it's unfortunate that last year was skipped, it is perhaps fitting that the very first Top 25 list was held ten years ago. In that land forgotten by time, ruled by ferocious console exclusives, informal top 10 lists would run rampant, unchecked and unquantified. (At least that's what the old threads say.) When the time came to make a definitive list, it was decided that 10 wasn't nearly enough, and the new number chosen has held fast to this very day. Over time, the rules and specifications have been modified, in terms such as what counts as a shmup, which versions of a game count as the same, who can vote, how many games one must vote for and how much credit one can give, but one thing has remained constant: Its purpose to serve as a snapshot of what the more experienced shmuppers here consider to be the finest examples of the genre in their time, for enthusiasts old and new to pore over in search of interesting things to try.

Having read this far, perhaps you'd like to take part, but are uncertain whether or not you know enough. Fortunately, there's a simple, mildly arbitrary minimum requirement you can check for yourself: Below is a list of all the previous Top 25 and Honorable Mention-only games. Provided you are familiar with at least 50% of these (which these days comes out to 48), you will be considered to have the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience necessary to vote in this poll.

Now, what qualifies as "familiar"? In this case, having played a game enough to understand the gameplay mechanisms that make it unique, fun, historically important, and/or any number of other things you might take as helping define the reason it's presented here as one of the best. By the same token, don't feel as though you're obligated to vote only for what's been popular; after all, each game listed was not always there. While not a flawless measure by any means, this provides a reasonable balance between the expected level of awareness and encouraging participation, as well as a decent basis for discussion in between times, of which there's bound to be plenty.

(Thanks to all previous organisers for the templates and quotes I've used as a base.)
