Top 10 Lightgun Shooters

Postby XamX » Fri Aug 18, 2017 7:16 pm

I'm a huge lightgun shooter fan and own 1 or even 2 lightguns for most of my systems. So here we go.

MY Top-10 Lightgun Shooters:

1) The House of the Dead 2 (Arcade, DC, Xbox, Wii, PC)
2) Time Crisis 2 (Arcade, PS2)
3) Confidential Mission (Arcade, DC)
4) Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles (Wii, PS3)
5) Virtua Cop 2 (Arcade, DC, SAT, PC)
6) The House of the Dead: Overkill (Wii, PS3, mobile phone)
7) Jurassic Park 3 (Arcade)
8) Ghost Squad (Arcade, Wii)
9) Time Crisis 1 (Arcade, PSX)
10) Farpoint (PS4 VR)

- Sorry, no Duck Hunt, Operation Wolf, Wild Gunman or Mad Doc McCree in my list - I know they were very popular in the US but I never liked them very much.
- some people might think my #10 isn't technically a lightgun shooter because it's kinda more, but since the genre is almost dead there is a future for the genre in VR (HTC Vive & PS VR work amazing!)

It had flaws and an awful environment but I liked Resident Evil Dead Aim.

I have a couple in your list plus Death Crimson OX for the Dreamcast.
I'm not a big fan of rail shooters, and my lightguns are rusting away.

I loved Lethal Enforcers back in the day. Me & my friend Scott put a lot of money into that machine back in high school. The convenience store just down the road from the school had a few arcade and pinball machines. Every day you'd find somebody there skipping classes and playing games. :D

I miss light gun games big time.
my 10.

Elemental gearbolt.
Point blank 1.
Point blank 2
House of the dead 2.
House of the dead 3
Ghoul panic.
Vampire knights.
Time crisis 2.
Virtua cop 2.
House of the dead overkill.

If you like LGG's you reallly gotta try elemental gearbolt it's not one that gets mentioned a lot but it really is a fantastic game with a brill soundtrack.

CarnEvil is one of my favs and it works great on MAME. Still need a working lightgun for MAME that`s avaible and not too expensive. A little cheat to skip reloading for mouse players: assign shoot and reload to the same button.
