FHM’s 100 Greatest Games of All Time

Posted by , 16 June 2009

R-Type

Year: 1987
Platform: Arcade

Why it’s a classic: The iconic space blaster with a hundred imitators but not a single superior. Infamously difficult and sporting some of the era’s best visuals, this was the moment sci-fi games got serious.

Best bit: Seeing off the multi-eyeballed first boss, through a relentless application of wave cannons and missiles. And around £85 in fifty pence pieces.
