¿What is a Shoot 'em up?
Acording to Wikipedia
Shoot ‘em up is a subgenre of video games within the shooter subgenre in the action genre. There is no consensus as to which design elements compose a shoot ’em up. Some restrict the definition to games featuring spacecraft and certain types of character movement; others allow a broader definition including characters on foot and a variety of perspectives.
Basically, if your ship (or character) is flying and must blast everything, then it's a Shoot 'em up.

So yeah, discuss about your favorite shmups here.

Yeah, games like those.(even if i don't played many of those what you listed lol)
Personally, i don't consider the shmups as a shooter subgenre, many of those “subgenres” are very different from each other, and i consider many of those (including shmups) as a unique genres. I putted the Wikipedia description only because i suck at doing descriptions myself.

i was going to mention Gradius. The third game is my favorite of the series, the SNES port is one of my favorites shmups on the SNES despite the slowdown.

I'm a big fan of Galaga, Xevious and Bosconian.
Gotta love the classics!
