10 Light Gun Games That Need to Be Resurrected


The horrible truth is that arcades are an endangered species. With the boom in home consoles over the past 30 years, quarters have been staying in piggy banks instead of being collected by arcade cabinets. Side-scrolling beat ’em ups and fighting games may have been received well on home consoles due to online play, but the transition has not been as kind to light gun rail-shooters.

Light gun games have fallen into an abyss where their only places in the world seem to be in movie theater and bowling alley lobbies — and that’s about it. Motion technology allows players to interact with games in remarkable ways, so why not bring back one of the earliest staples of arcade gaming and revolutionize it in this manner?

Shoot offscreen to reload and avoid the innocents, because today we recognize 10 light gun games that need to be resurrected.
