Top 5 Light Gun Games
5: Duck Hunt
|Made of WIN!!!|
A more recent entry into the Light Gun genre, this game is actually really well done. Sega included clips from the original Sylvester Stallone movies, added some well made quick time events, and put together a surprisingly well polished package. Add in Segata Sanshiro as a spokesman, and you have a recipe for epic win.
3: Area 51
I'll admit it. Area 51 gave me nightmares as a kid. I think it was the game over screen that did me in. Holy crap, that was scary stuff...
See what I mean? Now that I've had time to really sit down and actually appreciate the game, I've found that Area 51 has aged much more gracefully than most games from that time period. When Opp and I were at the local movie theater a few months ago, I stumbled upon a cabinet and absolutely had to play a game. When a game invokes that kind of impulse, you know you've got a winner.
2: Time Crisis 3
Time Crisis 3 captured the best of what made their cover mechanic work, and added in the right amount of over the top crazy action. It didn't feel as stale as Time Crisis 4, but still genuinely novel. I also liked that the voice acting actually made sense. The dialogue in the first two games was too B-movie for my tastes. It didn't fit as well in this style of game.
1: House of the Dead 3
