May VR bring the light gun games era back, so many cool possibilities =D
Umbrella Chronicles for me, but they all were awesome

My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

I really liked The House of the Dead 2 & 3, though I'm not sure if we're counting that.

You can if you like.

I'm playing through Umbrella Chronicles now, so I'll vote once I finish that.

At the moment, it's Dead Space for me. Strategic dismemberment is a great mechanic that raises it above the standard "shoot things in the head" gameplay of such games.

house of the dead, forgot how good that game was

Dead Space Extraction.

I never did pick up any of these games. Closest I have is Sin and Punishment: Star Successor. I have no idea how it compares. My Wii is still hooked up to my TV. Is it worth going back and picking any of these up?

I would say yes. Umbrella/Darkside Chronicles, Dead Space Extraction, and House of the Dead Overkill can all be got quite cheaply now, and are good fun.

Umbrella Chronicles for me. I also got Darkside Chronicles, but it wasn't that good, the mechanic was worse. I played Umbrella Chronicles with a friend in Two Player mode for some time.

Dead Space Extraction for me! Second only to the original Dead Space.

While Extraction was fantastic, you get it included with the PS3 version of Dead Space 2 and it's both visually nicer on the eyes and move compatible so more or less the same controls as the Wii just with more grunt behind it... and we all like grunt!

House of the dead overkill though, that is fairly mental in places on the Wii, recall really enjoying it, fantastic that the system more or less supports light gun esque games when modern TVs render the old technology light guns mostly useless.


Of course on saying Overkill... I would have to also mention that this exists. http://pcmedia.ign.com/pc/image/object/109/109109/hotd_overkill_ps31.jpg

Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8
