Just curious. My own opinion is that although I think it might inspire a few original and intriguing homebrews or hacks of existing shooters or allow realistic ports of shooter arcade games, I believe there is exactly one light gun homebrew for the atari 2600/7800/8-bit line-up (Bobby Needs Food), so it would probably be futile. But, perhaps there is more interest than is perceived. So, I guess I am leaning slightly towards the 4th choice versus the 3rd choice.

My enjoyment of light gun games is limited to more modern consoles and arcade games via MAME and as such I have no interest in light guns for more retro systems.  So I voted for the second to last option.

I thought light guns don't work on the lcd, etc...  of new tvs?

 

If that is true then it is useless to create a game for it.

The Wii uses an IR light gun/wiimote. Many plug and play games use IR sensor guns. Works with any TV. I had it explained in a multiple choice poll, but someone pulled it. Supposed to fill out a form first or something???
