    I've been hearing this word often ever since I joined the community. At first it sounded bad but some "schmups" received praise and such, leaving me udderly confused. So can anyone help me understand what a schmup is?

    Gradius, Raiden, and R-Type are shmups

    It's a "Shoot Em Up"

    Normally a top view of a shooting game where you are a fighter plane/space ship/anime character on a broom shoot vertically. Also can be done horizontally.

    Examples: Raiden, R-Type, Giga Wing, Ikaruga, NanoStray, etc
