Shmups in a barcade - The 1up (Denver Colorado)

Ok so im new to the forum, but have been into shmups since the 80s and an avid collector of them since 97. I help run a barcade in Denver called the 1up and wanted to say that starting this next month im going to place a shooter there (of my choice) and have at least one there from now on. If the game does well, I plan to push for more as well as possible tournaments.

I wanted to hear some recommendations from you guys for our first shmup to be placed at the barcade.

original post is on Shmups but id like to hear everyones opinions.

thanks!

Jon

That's an impressive looking arcade you've got there. I think Varth would be a great choice for the first shooter.

Actually something like Espgaluda may be a good introduction to "modern" shmups.

Looks cool! I would put in the original Dodonpachi.

I'd recommend Dodonpachi too. 8-)

Looks oldschool, plays like a modern one.
