Alright as some of you may have figured out I have recently got into gaming again after about a fifiteen year abscence. I have a PS2. Sysyem is cheap and games are easy to find.

Anyway, I discovered that there are a few games out there that currently accept a light gun. I used to have one with my super nintendo, so I thought I would give it a try. I found a wireless one at a local videogame place for about 15$. They claim the oriignal Namco wired Guncon 2 gun is the best out there.
Here is a listing of the many available guns out there.

I also searched for lists of light gun games and found this. There may be more out there.

Anyway, I picked up time crisis 2 for about 12 bucks used and went to work to see if this would be any fun or not.
Well for some reason I have absolutely no range at all. I must sit about 3ft from the tv. Anything further than that and the gun doesnt seem to register. These guns ONLY work on CRT tv's. Do not buy a light gun for other tv's unless it states that it will work on LCD,s or projections tv's.
(There are currently 2 new guns listed below that can reportedly achieve this by hooking up a special camera and some LED's beside your tv.)

Anyway, I have to say that you havent experienced gaming until you play Time crisis with a light gun. It is really cool. I liked it so much I went out and bought Time crisis 3 and Time crisis:Crisis zone as well.
They all are incredible.

I would have to say if you have any of these games spend the 15$ and see what you think, you might be pleasantly suprised.
