Best Shmup?

I'm relatively new to the forum here, but I was wondering what everyone's thoughts are on some great Shmups?

I have Worldly Wings, Icarus-X, iFighter, Siberian Strike, and Do-Don-Pachi Resurrection.

Any others I'm missing?

By the way, sorry if this thread already exists, I didn't find it.

You're welcome

Remembered some more I have that you didn't mention..

Platypus (side scroller but has a lite to try)
Roswell Fighter (has lite)
Space Deadbeef (also sidescroller but it's free)
Warblade

Oh and definitely check out Space Invaders Infinity Gene. I don't know how I forgot to mention that. SIIG, the 2 Cave Bullet Hell shooters, Sky Force, and Icarus - X are my favorites. iFighter is good as well. Don't have Siberian Strike but I should try the lite.

I second Warblade and Space Invaders Infinity Gene.

rRootage and Noiz2sa are also both excellent.

Some sci-fi shmups:
IMHO...
Danmaku Unlimited is a very special BH shooter if you catch its mood.
Lightning Fighter is a fine piece of work.
Dariusburst vies with the very best. (It's a little reminiscent of the console game Soldner X2 - if you know that one.)
Shogun is great but gets hard.
Starfire is coming along quite nicely.
And a bump for Warblade - it's quite something.
