Taking over the duty from Zach (who took over from nullstar before), I present this year's top 25 poll. I know we're a little late this time, but some things needed sorting out and we (the mods) wanted to do it before the voting process started, not right in the middle of it. Extra big thanks go out to incognoscente, who helped a lot in preparing this year's vote.

Note that this is the voting only thread. Please direct any discussion about the poll to this thread.

Polls close May 5!

What's New?
Death Smiles
Every Extend Extra Extreme
Jetpac Refueled
Karous (DC release)
Last Hope
Mountain of Faith
Muchi Muchi Pork
Otomedius
Raiden IV
Shikigami no Shiro III (Xbox 360 and Wii releases)
Shooting Love 2007 / Exzeal
Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer
Space Giraffe
Trigger Heart Exelica (DC release)


As usual, most of the following is ripped off from nullstar's polls. Rule changes for this year are in yellow:

RULES:
00) If you haven't participated before, read the background section (below) before proceeding any further.
01) Vote for the 25 shmups you feel are the "top" of all time. (What constitutes top is up to you: best, favorite, most influential, most significant, mix-and-match, etc.)
02) For each shmup, allocate an integer number of points in the range from 1 to 25. The points you assign will help compensate for, say, games that fewer people vote for but feel much more strongly about than others they vote for.
03) Shmups released in calendar year 2008 are not eligible for consideration.
04) Don't Vote for games You haven't played! Hopefully that was self-evident...
05) Distinguish between games on compilations! (e.g. Zanac X Zanac is not something you can vote for -- it's the name of the compilation, not a game. Raiden Project is another example.)
06) Specify when different games share the same title. (We're not talking about ports here -- stuff like U.N. Squadron: the SNES game and arcade game are so different we consider them separately; Gradius III SNES and arcade is another good example.) If you intend to vote for a game titled "Salamander" or "Life Force", please be as specific as possible as to which format and region you're voting for.
07) No Borderliners! Stuff that's off-limits generally include: "run-and-gun" (think Contra or Metal Slug); on-rails/into-the-screen shooters (Rez, Panzer Dragoon, Space Harrier, etc.). Stuff like Space Invaders and Galaga are OK.
08) You must vote for exactly 25 games, no more, no less. If you can't come up with 25 games, chances are you're not experienced enough (see below) to vote anyway. If you can't limit yourself to 25 games, that's just bad luck, I guess. Consider viewing the agonizing experience of cutting down your list to 25 as a lesson in self-disipline.
09) USE THE VOTE FORMAT!!!!! As stated, we're trying to automate data entry, so see the Vote Format section...


Vote Format:
Votes need to be in the following format:
- one game per line
- first thing on line: the integer score to assign to the game (1 to 25), in brackets
- second thing on line: a space
- final thing on line before hitting enter: name of the game, in brackets



Some Examples:

[25] [Brilliant Bronzerifle]
[25] [DoReMiPachi]
[25] [Battle Parkinglot]

would be the same as

[1] [Brilliant Bronzerifle]
[1] [DoReMiPachi]
[1] [Battle Parkinglot]

because every game would get the same share of the user's vote, but in this example:

[25] [Battle Parkinglot]
[3] [Brilliant Bronzerifle]
[1] [DoReMiPachi]

the user has expressed his belief that Raisin's masterpiece is far above anything else, including Precious's classic epic shooter, which got two points more than Grotto's musical chaining game.



Can I just give a simple ranked list of 25 games instead?
Yes, but follow the format above and be sure to give your top pick 25 points, like so:

[25] [Favorite]
[24] [Second Favorite]
[23] [Third Favorite]
... etc ...
[2] [24th Favorite]
[1] [25th Favorite]

BACKGROUND:
Historically, informal "top 10" shmup lists showed up on the forum with a frequency only eclipsed by the age-old questions of "Thunderforce V: PSX or Saturn?!" and "which Dreamcast shmups to buy?!" But a lot of people felt 10 was just too short a list to even begin to list the best of the best shmups...so the annual top 25 got started three years ago. It helps reduce the frequency of informal polls; it gives people a bit more choice in what to include on their list; and most importantly: it helps provides everyone an annual snapshot of what the forum's widely and deeply experienced players collectively felt was "basic background" for any serious (or aspiring) shmupper. (By the way: it's still OK to run informal top 10s...)

So what constitutes "widely and deeply experienced"? That's impossible to truly quantify, but as a general guideline: voters should be familiar with nearly all (95+%) of the games on previous years' top 25 lists. Furthermore, they should be equally familiar with nearly as many (90+%) of the shmups on previous years' honorable mention lists. And, to the extent that other games voters have listed are available, would-be voters should be familiar with 50%-65+% of those games, as well.

And what constitutes "familiar"? Basically, having played it enough to understand the gameplay mechanisms that make it unique, and/or fun and/or historically important and/or any number of other things you might take as helping define "top."

So this is just for the old and decrepit? The intent is not to make voting for a top 25 some elitist function; at the same time, the value of such a list is diminished as those lacking adequate experience participate in the voting process. Scoring mechanisms are in place to try and counteract this somewhat, but this is by no means a perfect system. Meeting the guidelines listed here will go a long way to helping ensure that the results of such votes can be trusted, and that those new to the genre and/or voting process have concrete goals that will go a long way to producing better participation and more accurate results in future years. (Even in the past couple years a number of forum members have used the results of the Top 25 poll to guide where they spend time and money as they become more familiar with the genre.)

Is this perfect? By no means -- but it's a bit of fun, helps spark some discussion, and helps provide some direction of the genres core experiences.

Having to leave off Einhänder, Radirgy, Mars Matrix, and any mention of Taito or Toaplan (aside from Twin Cobra) kind of hurts. I just don't know what to change.

Edit again: Blech, I was told Senko doesn't count. I'm giving its points to my two other top tier games out of defiance. Don't ask me why TSS counts btw.


I feel kinda bad at a bunch of the games I left out, like everything Toaplan and some of the console games like Recca, Nexzr, Thunder Force 3-4, Einhänder, Gradius Gaiden, etc. Oh well, I like this genre too much. I could get up to maybe 100 before I started disliking the games. :?

Here it is. I ended doing more changes that I thought - maybe not all of them for the better. As a list, last year's was probably more balanced. Please take notice that while I voted for the Forever with Me release of Jikkyo, I don't consider the changes to be substantial, so I'd group the votes of all the three versions (Snes, SS, PS) together.
