I'm pretty clueless when it comes to the PSX, let alone JPN PSX. Anyone wanna point me in the right direction? I'm looking for JPN exclusives please 8)

Ones that I've played...

Harmful Park (A must!)
DoDonPachi (Better on MAME/Saturn but still good on PSX)
Gradius Gaiden
Sexy Parodius
Soukyugerentai

I'm usually bias to verts, but G-darius on psx very quickly became one of my favorite shooters. i highly recommend it. i think it may be a US release, my bad if you wanted strictly JP releases. (edit; whoops, looks like you were. sorry)

G-Darius runs really well on a dreamcast and the graphix look so much better running it on a dreamcast with bleamcast.

Yes these are great choices. I especially think Zanac x Zanac is a great choice, the last Compile shooter made! Also, the JP version R-Type Delta is much less expensive than the US version and it's an amazing game!

Gunbird is a pretty decent game, or so I hear.

The watered down version is Mobile Lightforce.
