Gotta spruce up the discussion a bit, what are you Top 5?
In terms of exclusives, I'd say:
Cho Ren Sha 68K
Ah My Princess!
In terms of arcade ports, I'd say:
Ghouls N Ghosts
I'd say so far for original content:
The rest are usual suspect arcade ports such as Dai Makai Mura, Strider, Gradius, Parodius etc.
I really enjoy Geograph Seal, even with the slowdown on a standard X68000. Aquales is a pretty fun exclusive as well.
I'm a Sega fan, so I like that
Super hang on
They are much better than the Amiga versions
Star Wars - that's why I bought an X68000.
I'm not a real shoot-up fan, but there are many great titles.
Since I am German and can not speak Japanese, there are many adventure songs that I unfortunately can not play.
My favorites so far:
Geograph Seal (Did anyone get these cheats to work https://www.gamespot.com/geograph-seal/cheats/? I didn't, but they maybe because I have a keyboard adapter and ps/2 keyboard)
Alien Syndrome (is there some cheat/trainer available?)
And since there are soooo many shmups (and it's not my most favorite genre as well), I haven't decided on favorites yet.
Metal Orange EX
Nemesis '90 Kai
Super Star Shooter
Thunder Force II
Zero Master Striker
Arcade (really just a listing of arcade games I like that happen to be on the system off the top of my head and probably forgetting a bunch more, now we have better ways to play arcade games so these ports are obsolete)
Atomic Robo Kid
Kyukyoku Tiger/Twin Cobra (incorrectly listed in the HDD image collections as "Tiger Heli" iirc)
EDIT: If anyone has recommendations for quality non- arcade port games not listed here beyond what is already on the common HDD images I am all ears.
