Aracade Shmups are basically torture devices designed for pixel fetish masochists. I can toralate games like Lords of Thunder thanks to good music, but all those dumb coin munching arcade shmup craps should be erased from the earth.

If we include arcade games I'd add Midway and Williams to that.
And also Atari? Western classic arcade games would be trully great if they didn't have such a brutal give-me-more-coins difficulty. Or maybe it's just I suck at them.

Gekirindan Rayforce and Elevator Action Returns alone are worth the price, but you also get Darius and tons of other cool shit.
FTFY. I never heard about Gekirindan before but it can't be better than Rayforce because it can't.

Overall, Taito arcade games don't always have top quality when it comes to gameplay, but some of their games have clearly A+ best is the business art/music. I can't and will never be able to beat Rayforce, Warrior Blade, Metal Black, Rainbow Gayland, etc but I still like them for that very reason.



Btw EAR is a really good co-op game. It's a shame lots of great arcade co-ops are overlooked and forgotten. You can revive them with Retronarch netplay though.

Elevator Action Returns sounds like it'd be amazing in co-op. Like I said, it has a lot of early cover shooter type mechanics way before gears of war came along.
