Vanquish  (PlayStation 3)    2010

Gameplay video

1) Fast-paced style of gameplay reminiscent of 2D bullet hell shooters (watch Batsugun).

2) Rocket-sliding mechanic -player control Sam Gideon, a DARPA agent armed with the Augmented Reaction Suit. If the player takes too much damage, the suit will automatically enter Augmented Reaction mode (AR mode), which slows down time, helping the player to avoid being killed. The player can also manually enter AR mode by holding down the target button while evading, allowing the player to target enemies easily. At any time, the player can use boosters on the suit to move quickly across the area. If the player uses AR mode or the boosters too much in a short time, the suit will overheat and will require a short period to cool down, during which Sam is less mobile.

3) Vanquish has since set a new trend that can be seen in upcoming shooters which have incorporated similar sliding mechanics, including Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, and Killzone 3.
4) Advanced cover system - which it has been credited for taking "to the next level." In contrast to previous cover-based shooters, Vanquish has bullets and missiles coming from all directions in a manner reminiscent of bullet hell shooters and the cover is easily destructible, forcing the player character to be on the move, while the game also penalizes the player's score for the amount of time spent in cover

Cover system first used in WinBack: Covert Operations.
5) GameSpot gave the game the award for "Best Original Game Mechanic".

6) Dance of the  robots from the game is from cult movie  Boogie nights (1997), which was in 2008 used in South park episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft".

7) First game with giant monsters was Painkiller (2004).
