Our Five Favourite…Shoot ‘em ups (or shmups if you prefer)

AceGamez writes: "Like 2D fighters, shoot’em ups (or shmups as they are often referred to) have seen something of a renaissance over the past few years. Thanks largely to the advent of XBLA, PSN and the Wii’s Virtual Console service, this once stagnant genre has seemingly found the perfect home for its traditionally quick-fire gameplay."
