Despite being more well-known in the West for games like DonPachi and Deathsmiles, Guwange is one of Cave’s most revered shooting titles in its native Japan. This is for two reasons: its medieval setting is a nice break from the usual science-fiction fare found in the genre, while its unique “shikigami” mechanic turns what could be a tedious shooter into an enthralling blend of frantic action and delicate positioning. – Kotaku

Alan N: This was the year that I officially regressed into a moldy retro gamer. the focus is really narrow on my list: shmups, j-rpgs, and platformers. I’m basically OK with that.
