man what

If Dragon's Dogma belongs in this thread then EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 4.1 definitely qualifies.

It's a game where you shoot giant evil robots and bugs.
The environment is all totally destructible with no consequence other than making your system chug - entire skyscrapers go down with your bigger weapons.

Eventually you get to punch a kaiju in the face with a giant robot.

The voice acting is B-move as hell.

And there's couch and online multiplayer and FOUR CLASSES!
RANGER: A regular guy with regular weapons! Never a bad pick, although they could use, like, a grappling hook ability or something. Bazookas, rocket launchers, shotguns, rifles, snipers, it's all here.
FENCER: A big slow moving armored guy that equips one weapon on each arm, but has a long-range dash and can dash-cancel! Swords, gatling guns, artillery! Also has superweapons that they need an Air Raider to help out with. Kind of not the greatest but still fun!
WING DIVER: Be an anime robot magical girl with TnA! Fly around with an energy meter that your weapons can share! Shoot lasers!
AIR RAIDER: Looks like a ranger, but their default weapons are just lovely mine launchers and targeting lasers for heavy Fencer weapons. But they can summon vehicles into combat, or call in airstrikes! I have no idea how you play these guys in underground levels because then they can't summon poo poo.

And the game has a goofy weapon levelling drop system where higher difficulties drop much higher level weapons, so instead of doing a 'straight playthrough' of normal mode, it's suggested that after you get some OK unlocks, you repeat some of the early levels on the hardest difficulties so you can get some really wacky weapons.

It's just a fun time.

Also you can sing mid-battle and NPCs will sing the appropriate counterpoint.
