Why do 16-bit light guns look so ridiculous?
SNES Super Scope:
Compared to these 8-bit offerings:
NES Gray Zapper:
NES Orange Zapper:
SMS Light Phaser:
I mean, I can understand that in the 90s, video game and toy makers were pressured to make guns look unrealistic as possible, but come on, the Super Scope and Menacer just look absolutely ridiculous. Even later gen systems like the PS1 Namco Guncon look normal in comparison. What's worse, with all the modular detachable pieces that can get lost over the years, it's nearly impossible to find one complete.
