    Not a big fan of shmups but I know that many think MUSHA is by far the best shooter for the Genesis. Unfortunately, this game can go for around $150 for the cart and several hundred for a complete copy (Ebay pricing). Now, I don't know how good this game REALLY is but it better be a life changing experience for that price and so far nothing on the Genesis has done this for me. Regardless, people seem to love this game enough to pay these prices.
    Wherever politics tries to be redemptive, it is promising too much. Where it wishes to do the work of God, it becomes not divine, but demonic.

    Assuming the OP is on a budget, the Thunder Force games are a good start. II is the most common in my experience (although its considered the worst of the Genesis trilogy because it features overhead stages that require exploration. That said, "the worst" of an above-par series is still pretty good)
