It’s not too often you see someone’s top ten for this system have so many shooters. Shooters are my favourite genre on the arcade but for whatever reason I never had any as a kid on the Mega Drive, I really did miss out regarding shooters whilst growing up.

Huh! It looks like I never posted my top 10. What a travesty!

King's Bounty
I’ve always thought King’s Bounty looked so damn horrible, haha. What is it that makes it a good game to you? I’m trying trying to poop on the game but just genuinely curious.

I don't disagree with you on the graphics - they are pretty lame even compared to other Genesis titles, but I used to play this with my friend Steve for hours and hours. I love RPGs and strategy games, so this really appealed to me as a kid. Even now I'll fire it up and play for a bit - it just takes me back to childhood. I think that's the key with my top 10 - all of them are games I played when I was a kid when I didn't have an expansive library, and my friends and I played them nonstop.

You could say I missed out on them too as a child . I really only played lightening force on genesis and r type on gameboy as a kid. Now a days it’s my favorite genre.

what are some of your favorite shoot em ups? Do you like toaplan? Something about that company really does it for me. Of course r type 3 on snes is another one of my favorites and gate of thunder on turbografx cd is up there as well... Not to derail the thread but shoot em ups are the best of the best in my opinion..
