Gradius is a space shooter game made by Konami. Gradius is a popular series of games that still exists today. It all started with the original, which is still a very good game today. The ability to choose your own power-ups separates this game from others in it's genre. Gradius is somewhat short, and doesn't have a ton of cool bosses. The soundtrack and solid gameplay make up for this though. It's still a classic, and belongs in everyone's NES collection.
