    Does anyone know of any good shooting video games?

    I was at a bar/arcade today and saw a sport shooting type video game. The sights were on and the action was pretty fun. It made me wish there was something like this for my Xbox360 or PS3. It would keep me entertained on rainy days or late nights.

    The game I played at the acrade was Sports Shooting USA and it was sponsored by STI guns. Here's a link to it, very fun!

    Video of game play.

    Aaah what a great game, I've spent many quarters on it. I'm not sure if there's a similar game for consoles though. I imagine you would be hard pressed to find a shooter that doesn't involve foiling the plots of evil alien space nazis with laser guns.

    I never really got into video games, but I did have a lot of fun with Call of Duty (2, I think).

    It was fun to be able to pick up and shoot all of the different WWII small arms.
    The Flakpanzer 88 wasn't bad either. :)

    ...and grenades.

    Haven't played the FPS games for a while, but when I did:

    Counter Strike
    Soldier of Fortune 2
    Return to Castle Wolfenstein
    Half-Life (all of them)
    Medal of Honor (all of them)
    Unreal and Unreal Tournament (pretty much all of them)
    Quake (yet again, all of them)
    Probably a few others I can't recall. All on PC.


    All them a lot of fun and all of them not even close to the real thing. But then the same goes for movies and I like watching them too.

    That game looks pretty cool!

    I miss those light gun kind of games, my favorite is House of the Dead 2 which I have the home version of for Dreamcast, it only works on CRTs.

    Ah yes, the good ol DOS days when games came on floppy disks. And I'm talking the 5 1/4 floppies, not the 3 1/2 floppies.

    Makes me want to break out my old Apple IIe. Now that was 1337!

    Call of Duty 4 is great online.

    Call of Duty 5 is also great online.

    Left 4 Dead is a great zombie/survival shooter.

    COD4 Modern Warfare 2 is coming out in the fall and looks really amazing.

    Call of Duty 4 has taken up way, way too much of my time. It has the advantage of having relatively realistic weapons (compared to most games anyway), which you get to customize with different optics and accessories. The Multiplayer is where I spend all my time. It has a "Hardcore" mode where it only takes 1 or 2 hits to kill you. Much better than those games where have to shoot people 8 times with an M14 to kill them.

    The Nentindo Wii has a really cool dangerous game hunting, game. You really have to look and listen and always be ready to fire, no Dark Overlords, Alien Hoards or Evil Princes to deal with.:)


    This is this! It's not something else, it's this!

    I'm so ashamed.

    I'm guilty too. Plus I really suck at the game (PC version). But it's so addictive.

    While I don't think that the shooting in the game has helped my REAL shooting, I think my REAL shooting has helped my shooting in the game.

    I have one better......

    At a range near here there was a projector screen that recorded where your real gun, real bullets went. It was linked with video on the screen to record hits and score you. There were several different 'games' you could play including 'old west' shooting scenarios to attacking dogs to target/speed practice.

    It was a lot of fun, but then the owner of the range went to prison for many and varied offenses and the new owners don't use it.....

    I have no idea what it was called aside from 'lots of fun' from everyone who used it.

    The biggest thing playing endless multiplayer in games like COD4 has done is make me subconsciously very aware of the human shape as a target, as well as very aware of movement in windows/shapes that aren't normally present etc. It's fairly often that I'll see some movement up in a window as I'm walking down the street and my brain literally screams at me to get my rifle sights on the window as fast as possible :eek:
    I think you have to play a LOT to get that way though... :eek: I should really cut back... I end up as the top player out of both teams probably 75% of the time that I play, so I guess you could say I get fairly immersed.

    I thought that video games are not on topic in any way, shape, or form here.

    Folks,

    Can anyone tell me how video/computer games discussions are firearms related (beyond their inherent inaccuracies depicting firearms and shooting)?

    They are not firearms related.
    They do nothing to further the RKBA.
    They do nothing to provide users with the responsibility of firearms ownership.
    They do nothing to enhance the skills with actual firearms.

    They are fantasy worlds with fictional consequences.

    When a game realistically depict firearms, to me its totally firearms related.. AS much as a movie or a book can be..
