I'm surprised not to see tetris there, if I was asked to make a list of my top ten faves it would probably be in it, I've always loved tetris, in fact I played it for about a hour today.

Great list though, and they are all great games.

5 Choices is not enough.

Galaga/Galaxian were a more refined version of Space Invaders, so what about Gyruss ? It took the concept even further.

What about the old side scrollers Scrambler, Moon Patrol and defender ???

As I said, 5 is not enough, with Galaga having a "similar" game mechanic to Space Invaders , I would of picked Asteroids Instead. Ah.. Those Vector graphics gave me a "full on robot chubby"

Never played Scrambler but man I loved playing Moon Patrol and Defender. Galaga and Space Invaders are my favorites out of the games mentioned. I want to see someone do an article on the evolution of shoot'em ups in gaming. Even though some great games have been released these last few years the genre still doesn't get the attention it deserves.
