Well, like about 80% of the fandom under 35, I was dragged into Shmups proper by Ikaruga, as there's nothing overly "complex" about it, it's just a little tough. For something modern, defender-clone Resogun on the PS4 is pretty good. There are a lot of systems to learn to get the most out of it and get the high scores/rescue all the humans that are never explained, but it's very pick-up-and-play it terms of how soon you can get playing and having a good time with it, and it has a number of difficulty levels to chose from.

http://www.racketboy.com/retro/the-best ... et-started has a number of suggestions, and whilie I haven't played most of them, I found Trouble Witches Neo to be a reasonable starting point, as it clearly marks your hit-box with a bright green dot, letting you get ton of practice in finer dodging. Game itself is a little so-so, but a good entry point if you've got nothing else in mind.

Welcome to the forum! I also enjoy shoot 'em ups, even though I'm also not too good at them. Lol.

Been around the site for awhile but finally created an account and finally posted! I'm from WI and like all gaming but especially the retro stuff. My favorite system is the NES with the Sega CD second. RPG's are my favorite. It's great to finally be a part of the community!
