i could never get the esprade love.  fo a while, i figured it was the starting place fo a lot of old-timer's pcb collecting, and had a nostalgia value; as well as popular with young guys cos of mame etc.  i loaned the pcb for a week, but just didn't do anything for me   :-\  wouldn't even put it in a top 20
 

That's generally the consensus. I just love shooters that ask you to be aggressive. No need to learn complicated chain patterns (much as I do love DOJ). Just get up on top of every enemy and point-blank them as fast as you can. Heaven is a screen full of gold bricks and X16's.

It's about that time to do the top 10 yearly poll isn't it?

Re-examining my top 5:

1. Mushihimesama Futari BL
2. EspGaluda II BL
3. Deathsmiles MBL 1.1
4. Mushihimesama Futari 1.5
5. DDP DFK 1.5

Today's list based mainly on what, after a bunch of play, I still consider really fun to play.
In terms of sheer masterpieces, DOJ would have to make the list.

In my short time back playing shmups again, it's still hard to put together a list.  I've spent far too much time bouncing from game to game really.  It's been a blast though!

But anyways, so far..

1.  DDP DFK BL
2.  Mushi Futari BL
3.  Muchi Muchi Pork!
4.  DeathSmiles MBL
5.  Ketsui

I haven't put time into the original DS and I hear a lot of folks prefer that.  I also want to revisit Futari 1.5 soon, as I sold my PCB but picked up the port.  And I need to dig back into DFK 1.5 soon, but the autobomb bothers me more now, after playing BL.

Right now:

1. Ketsui (reign supreme)
2. ESPGALUDA (my first love)
3. DOJ BL (whenever I get stuck in another CAVE game, playing this a bit makes you better at everything)
4. Futari BL (All three modes are excellent in their own way)
5. ESPGALUDA II Omake! (it's just a lot of fun)

1.Dangun Feveron(always feel like playing this,always)
2.Espgaluda2(all time favorite bullet Patterns great pacing)
3.Mushi Futari:Ultra Novice(funnest scoring because your made to win)
4.Espgaluda: (Same reasons as 2)
5. Dodonpachi: (still some of the best bullet patterns and level design Cave has done)

Least favorite Esprade

I got to try a few credits of Daikfutsu 2 days ago. I love it but I need to play more to see how much, I most definitely prefer it too DOJ.

5. Dodonpachi (really neat bullet patterns in this one)

2. Deathsmiles
3. Deathsmiles II ver 4.00
4. Ketsui
5. Mushihimesama Futari Black Label

My favorites fluctuate a bit, but these have either stood the test of time, or knocked my socks off from the get go.

5. Deathsmiles (haven't played MBL enough to evaluate a preference)
4. Dodonpachi DOJ (both versions, as I find them awfully similar)
3. Akai Katana (love all 3 modes of the port)
2. Mushihimesama (maniac)
1. Espgaluda 2 (I've only cleared it once, but it is my greatest STG accomplishment)

Wow. While I knew MMP and Futari 1.5 would be on your list, it's amazing to see two horizontal games on there! No Pink Sweets?

Still don't know if I could come up with my own top 5.

Pink Sweets would fit in my 6-10 slots. As would Deathsmiles II and Espgaluda II. Recently I favor Deathsmiles over Deathsmiles II, but both are great games.
