Shooting is a popular way to engage players in video games. There's something innately rewarding about getting good at aiming and feeling powerful when you hit your target. One interesting twist on this experience is games that do the shooting for you, but leave it down to you to efficiently get around the levels and make strategic weapon choices.

These auto-shooter games usually pit the player against waves of enemies to see how long they can last. Being freed from the job of aiming completely transforms the challenge. Rather than reflexes and accuracy, these games require forward planning and enemy management as much as quick reflexes.

These games are sometimes called Reverse Bullet Hell games, as it's the player rather than the computer who is filling the screen with bullets to avoid. However, this often includes games that aren't technically auto shooters where you control your shooting in Twin-Stick Shooter style - so don't count for our list.
This list includes 9 games from the last 5 years, with 666 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to survive by your wits and guile.
