Space Invaders vs. Galaxian (And why Galaxian is better!)

I'm taking time out of my admittedly less than busy day to rant about a trivial issue. Galaxian only has 250 fans, but that crappy proto-shooter Space Invaders has 20k. Sure, Space Invaders did it first, but Space Invaders also did it wrong. Shields and moving in place? Too easy. Galaxian has the added excitement of dogfights, and it's later phases are hard... not at all like Space Invaders.

Well, at least Galaga has a good following.
