(I thought about posting this in the Game Hardware forum, but I'm not actually talking about the hardware itself... mods feel free to move if needs be...) So I popped in an XBOX demo disk last night. (The one with the 007 demo) And up flares an ad for a new lightgun that works with the SilentScope games, amongst others. It features a kick-back function to simulate recoil. It also breaks down into a pump-action shotgun. Either mode works with lightgun-compatible games... "COOL", says I! My wife looks over, watches briefly, and says "now THAT, I have a problem with." I was perplexed. She has no issues with me playing GTA3, or any other violent games. Hell, she agrees with my stance on those games. (Keep in mind we don't have kids, so I'm the primary game-player in the house...) I pointed out that lightgun games have been in the arcades for a VERY long time. Hell, arcade games with attached guns have been around longer than VIDEOgames have. (I remember the old black-light-lit Hogan's Alley style games with popup targets! ) But she stands firm that she has a problem with this XBox lightgun. Weird. So "shooting" a video-game character with a weird-shaped controller and an "A" button is okay, but not if it is shaped like a gun? (That said, I wouldn't buy it for a kid...but I wouldn't buy GTA3 for a kid either...) So what are YOUR thoughts about lightguns for console gaming?
