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, et cetera.)
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. 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 Background, below) to vote anyway. If you can't limit yourself to 25 games, consider viewing the agonizing experience of cutting down your list to 25 as a lesson in self-discipline.
04. Shmups released in calendar year 2010 are not eligible for consideration.
05. Don't vote for games you haven't played! Hopefully that was self-evident...
06. 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.)
07. Don't vote for game modes, be it difficulty levels or bonus modes included in home ports of arcade games. (Examples: You cannot vote specifically for Strikers 1945 Monkey difficulty, Mushihimesama Ultra, Raiden III Double Mode, or Ibara Arrange. Your votes have to go to just Strikers 1945, Mushihimesama, Raiden III, and Ibara, respectively.) Exceptions: You can vote for colour label modes or revisions of games, if those are sufficiently different and got a stand-alone release. (e.g. You can vote for Ibara Kuro: Black Label or Deathsmiles Mega Black Label.)
08. 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.
09. 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, Space Harrier)
    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 Batalion)
      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 #08, your opinion shall have no bearing on the eligibility of other votes.
10. Use the proper vote format. We're trying to automate data entry, so please provide only one game per line, in the following format:
    [integer score 1 to 25] [game title]

Some Examples:
    [25] [Deep Blue]
    [25] [Planet Joker]
    [25] [Scramble Egg]
would be the same as
    [1] [Deep Blue]
    [1] [Planet Joker]
    [1] [Scramble Egg]
because every game would get the same share of the user's vote, but in this example:
    [25] [Deep Blue]
    [3] [Planet Joker]
    [1] [Scramble Egg]
the user has either expressed his belief that Pack-In Video's, uh, masterpiece is far above anything else or otherwise that he would like to see it place higher on the chart at the expense of the other games on his list. By contrast, he has only extended a token gesture to Scramble Egg.


Can I just give a simple ranked list of 25 games instead?
Yes, though the weight of each part of your vote will be calculated as normal. Follow the format above and be sure to give your top pick 25 points, like so:
    [25] [Favorite]
    [24] [Second 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 eight 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 provide 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 50% or more of the games on previous years' Top 25 lists and Honorable Mention lists combined. As of the results of 2009's Top 25 poll, 48 unique titles have been listed in the Top 25 over 7 years of polls. In the same time frame, 37 additional unique games have been listed as Honorable Mention titles. Voters should be familiar with 41 ( ~= 50%) or more of the titles from the combined lists. For your convenience, both lists of titles are provided in the discussion thread.

And what constitutes "familiar?" Basically, having played it 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 "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 to 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.


Several passages of this post borrow heavily from the text of earlier polls. Many thanks to nullstar, Zach Keene, and incognoscente for their unintentional contributions.
