I’ve had a sort of weird gaming stretch goal in mind for a while that involves clearing all the “PC Generation” Touhou games. I’m going to ignore all the fighting games & focus solely on the Danmaku1 games. I’ve only ever played Touhou 6, and it was before I ever got into Bullet hell’s properly. I’ve got friends who are super into the series, so I think this might be a banger way to fully get into it.

Over the next year I plan on playing and 1cc’ing2 the following on Normal, eventually circling back to beat them on harder difficulties.

For each game I’ll track my scores and runs the same way I’ve tracked them for the other shmups I’ve played. As well as write a little review about the game compared to other games I’ve played. If there’s no page directly about the game, I have not played it yet.

First PC Generation

  1. TH6 - The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil
  2. TH7 - Perfect Cherry Blossom
  3. TH8 - Imperishable Night
  4. TH9 - Phantasmagoria of Flower View
  5. TH9.5 - Shoot the Bullet3

Second PC Generation

  1. TH10 - Mountain of Faith
  2. TH11 - Subterranean Animism
  3. TH12 - Undefined Fantastic Object
  4. TH12.5 - Double Spoiler4
  5. TH12.8 - Great Fairy Wars5
  6. TH13 - Ten Desires
  7. TH14 - Double Dealing Character
  8. TH15 - Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom

Third PC Generation6

  1. TH16 - Hidden Star in Four Seasons
  2. TH17 - Wily Beast and Weakest Creature
  3. TH18 - Unconnected Marketeers
  4. TH18.5 - 100th Black Market

Difficulty Order

As I play the games I’ll update this list with how difficult I think the games are in comparison to each-other. This will be updated while I play through each game so until I beat everything it’s not set in stone.

  1. TH13 - Ten Desires
  2. TH10 - Mountain of Faith
