      That doesn't apply to shmups any more than it does any other genre. Maybe CAVE or tranmaku games because they're so derivative, but most classic shmups have very distinctive design, gameplay systems, and scoring mechanics.

            Psikyo games give a huge amount of ship variety and have specific gameplay style with extremely fast directed bullets and a lot of focus on routing, safespots, and pointblanking. The games themselves are all fundamentally pretty similar to each other, but they have a distinctive style all their own compared to other shmups out there.

            Those four were masters of the genre; there really isn't anything out there like them. While games from Psikyo/IREM/Seibu are all fundamentally pretty similar to each other, they have a distinctive style all their own compared to other shmups out there. And then you have Toaplan whose entire appeal was that each one of their own games had a unique theme and gameplay style and all of the mechanics worked together cohesively to enable that.

            It's funny you have no games from their experimental Toaplan era, but then have two games from the derivative CAVE era where they just pumped out rehashed garbage on underpowered hardware for a cheap buck.
