Action games

This is list of gun games, video games that use a non-fixed gun controller, organized by the video game console or computer system that they were made available for. Ports of light gun games which do not support a light gun (e.g. the Sega Saturn version of Corpse Killer) are not included in this list. Also not included are games that use positional guns, analog controllers normally mounted to arcade cabinets that are used to move crosshairs along the screen. The games are organized alphabetically by the console's company and then subdivided by the respective company's consoles in a chronological fashion.

The Wii is unique in that its standard controller can be used as a gun controller. Though a number of Wii games do not support these capabilities, those which do form an exhaustively long list of games, many of which have no resemblance to traditional light gun games. Thus, this section will only include games that either explicitly support the Wii Zapper or are rail shooters in nature. Virtual Console ports, such as Operation Wolf,[12] have thus far not included any amount of light gun support.

Sony PlayStation[edit]

The PlayStation has two main types of light guns: the GunCon/G-Con by Namco and the Konami Justifier (known as the Hyperblaster in Japan and Europe). There were also other third-party and non-licensed light guns that were compatible with either: Justifier or GunCon games or both.

The Playstation 3 has two dedicated gun peripherals: the GunCon 3 by Namco and the Top Shot Elite by RedOctane. The Playstation Move can also function as a gun controller. To qualify, games using the Move have to either support the "Move Sharp Shooter" peripheral or be rail shooter in nature.
