I do wish on Rail Shooters could do something to revive the genre. It was always one of my favorite genres. You would think VR would be the perfect springboard to bounce it back but it's not sticking as well as I would like. Rail Shooters like Time Crisis, House of the Dead, and even the Jurassic Park Rail Shooter were all fun in the Arcades.

VR developers needs to revive the genre.

Well, you could play Gal Gun. It is rail shooter that you play harem king that all the girls wants him. So he "kills" them by shooting kisses. It is stupid idea, but unique. I would play it myself someday.

You can make your own rails shooter. I was thinking of doing one. Why wait for them to be mainstream again. I expect more rails shooters because of this course.

I miss light gun games. Lethal Enforcers is my all time favourite.

Now that's one game I really miss. Those light gun games were a lot of fun back in the days.

I'd love a new House of the Dead or Virtua Cop, but my dream is for the return of Panzer Dragoon.

Sega would be insane not to revive it after Unity came out.

NO! 99% of them suck without an actual proper Gun Controller.

Isn't that what 99% of VR games are?

There was a resurgence of these games when the Wii was out. I agree though, i wish these type of games got more attention.

If they’re anything like that Rambo game, they most certainly do not...

aren't those best played with a light gun, or in an arcade (where the hell are all the arcades, btw?)

I remember playing a lot of Area 51 back in the day.

Until what I aim at with a gun controller is where I shoot, I would prefer it stay down. The wii sensor bar or ps camera aim is dreadful IMO. You just adjust your wrist a little bit to aim at something instead of actually aiming like oldschool tvs used to do or like arcade machines do. Always hated that.

I am suggesting you youtube to wav instead of mp3 or aac because wav is a perfect audio file format with quality sound.
