^Me too. For whatever reason, these games from Cave activate endorphins in me that no other games can. Like a videogame drug or something..

I'd probably actually go with Mushihimesama Bug Panic. Such a unique spin on the genre, and it has a killer online multiplayer mode. Bug Princess and Dodonpachi are more fun than Deathsmiles and Espgaluda though.

My favorite Cave game is M.Bug Panic..but I don't really consider it shmup. I'm more of a dual stick shooter person, even though Bug Panic's not exactly dual stick shooter either.

Loved Deathsmiles (slightly awkward controls, but love the Castlevania vibe; doesn't satisfy my "bullet hell" bullet patterns itch though). Bug Princess is fun, but for some reason I don't feel compelled to keep replaying the game (only played it a few times since getting the game). I don't have the other 2 though...

I'm going to have to go with Bug Princess.

Espgaluda II trailing right behind it.

And in third Bug Panic

Deathsmiles is my fave, followed by Espgaluda 2. Love the vibe of Deathsmiles, and the fact that it's side scrolling as opposed to top-down. Can't wait or Dodonpachi Blissful Death

For the shmups, these would be my top two as well. If we're counting all Cave games, then Mushihimesama Bug Panic would be pretty high on my list, either 2nd or 3rd.

Right now I like bug princess the best I guess because I know how to play it. I can still can't figure out aweking mode in ESP and I don't know how to use the special in dodonpachi,also i don't like the lasers stuff. Deathsmiles is fun too but it's not top down..
