The May show is starting to percolate and should be filling your cup in a day or two. In the meantime, come on in and help us debate the best retro console light gun shooters!
Duck Hunt - NES
Area 51 - Saturn/Playstation
Point Blank Series - Playstation
House of the Dead Overkill - Wii
Terminator 2 - Genesis Menacer
Rescue Mission - Sega Master System
Lethal Enforcers - Sega CD
Operation Wolf - NES
House of the Dead 2 - Dreamcast
Shooting Gallery - Odyssey
Silent Scope - Dreamcast
Mad Dog McCree - Sega CD
Rescue Mission was an easy choice for me. House of the Dead 2 would be right up there, but I think of it more of an arcade title even thought it was indeed great on the DC.
If we're expanding to light gun style games, then Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles on the Wii takes the cake. It was fantastic through and through.
A good top 10. honorable mention should go to Safari Hunt on the Sega Master System. A Duck Hunt clone, sure, but an enjoyable one with a good sense of humor.

Hogan's Alley is a big fave of mine. Played it in the arcade and was a faithful port on the NES.
I remember how amazing the point blank G-Con gun and game set was. i also enjoy the house of the dead however nothing quite matches the HotD cabinets for me.

One lightgun game I enjoyed Die Hard 2 (as part of the Die Hard Trilogy game on PSX/Saturn). I think it was the setting the and the music/sfx that did it for me. Honestly, looking back, the game look pretty silly, and voice overs were pretty laughable, but the game had it charm.
What about those setups that you'd see at amusement parts that had physical objects with targets on them. Usually you'd see them designed to look like a wild west saloon. Wouldn't those count as light gun games as well?
House of the Dead 2 and Duck Hunt are probably the two I would expect to see. No Duck Hunt would be a travesty. Yoshi's Safari and Hogan's Alley were favorites of mine. Yoshi's Safari was fun because it was one of the few SNES Super Scope games. Who needs a light gun when you have a light bazooka?
