This month, we are looking for your top shooting games.
I was initially going to call this category Shoot 'em ups (as that's what I would call them), but because I want it to include light-gun games, and I didn't want to get it in the neck like I did on the beat 'em up category.
As ever, the definition is up to you but here is what Wikipedia has to say about them:
Shooter games are a subgenre of action game, which often test the player's speed and reaction time. It includes many subgenres that have the commonality of focusing on the actions of the avatar using some sort of weapon. Usually this weapon is a gun, or some other long-range weapon. A common resource found in many shooter games is ammunition. Most commonly, the purpose of a shooter game is to shoot opponents and proceed through missions without the player character being killed or dying. A shooting game is a genre of video game where the player has limited spatial control of his or her character, and the focus is almost entirely on the defeat of the character's enemies using long-range weaponry.
However, first-person shooters are not eligible in this category (because we have already done them)
EDIT: I got it in the neck anyway, so no third person shooters either, please.
Just list your top 10 below (each counts for one vote, so ranking them isn't important). No compilations please, single releases only.
Nominations are open for a month and voting closes on 10 February.
And while you are at it, don't forget to vote for your top 10 Nintendo DS games.
