As a staunch Galaga fan, I approve of this! Interesting to see some of the home versions there. The PCE/TG-16 version of Galaga '88/'90 is amazing; we played it in the Retro League and it's extremely close to the 'cade.

Here's another conversion of the original worth mentioning - Zalaga on the Beeb:

I remember playing Zalaga! Very good clone!

Another version that is missing from this video is Deluxe Galaga on the Amiga:

I have heard lots of good things about the PCE/TG-16 version. Definitely a game I need to track down. I have played the Nes version the most with the DS version coming in second.

The TG16 version of Galaga is probably my second favourite game on the console

High praise indeed! Especially from someone who thinks the sun rises and sets by Atari. ;)

The guys from Gaming History Source have released an updated video comparing various versions of Galaga.  This one is more than twice the length of the original one and has 27 different versions!  Check it out:
