"I know of few shooters that are better."
Every gamer has this part of them that compels them to find an obscure game and hoist it out there for the world to see. "This is my special find," we seem to say, "You haven't played videogames until you play this game, which, in your ignorance, you haven't yet played or even heard of."
The problem is, most great games aren't secrets. So we often absurdly boost weak titles that have for us some idiosyncratic appeal, and we swear that the appeal is universal.
Import shooters represent the most common and extreme example of this illogical treasure hunting. There are stories of blind children gathering in clandestine circles to worship Darius Alpha before towering and crumbling obelisks. Ginga Fukei Densetsu Sapphire is another one of the most fiercely hunted treasures. Here's where things get interesting: Sapphire actually is great.
