Zarlor Mercenary - Lynx
Xenon - Atari ST / Spectrum
Gynoug - Megadrive
Fantasy Zone - Master System
Raiden - Jaguar
Thunderforce II - Megadrive
Blazing Lazers - TurboGrafx
Air Buster - Megadrive
Xenon 2 - Atari ST / Amiga / Megadrive
Mercs - Megadrive
Ordyne - TurboGrafx
Steel Machine - CDi

Parodius - Saturn
Darius - Saturn / Megadrive

Mushihime-sama
Mushihime-sama Futari
Dodonpachi
Dodonpachi Dai-ou-jou
Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu
Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu Black Label
Dodonpachi Sai-Dai-ou-jou (not playable yet)
Ketsui
Ketsui Death Label
Progear
Ibara
Ibara Kuro
Muchi Muchi Pork
Pink Sweets
ESP Ra. De.
ESP Galuda
ESP Galuda 2
Akai Katana
Deathsmiles
Deathsmiles 2
Guwange


I'm a bit of a Cave fan, so there's those from them.  All of these aside from Sai-dai-ou-jou are available either on the 360 or as a ROM, or both.  Or PS2, for a very few of them.


There's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy more I could list here, in terms of shmups I'm aware of, but that'd take forever.  I'll add more later.

Any shmup list without Gate of Thunder is not worth looking at.

One that always sticks in my mind is Blood Money on the Amiga. It's not even that great of a shooter but it was one of the first games I had after upgrading from a Spectrum....the intro sequence was mind blowing at the time!

The sound on the Amiga and ST still wow me today. Xenon 2 is another shooter that has a fantastic intro with great music (pinched from Assault on Precinct 13 no less).
