    I personally loved the super nintendo super scope bazzoka thing
     
  11. I never tried the bazooka....but I think every game peripheral strives to be what the Nintendo gun was...most don't do so hot.


    the Guncon was pretty nice though.

    Orange gun? Wow, you guys had it fancy. I just had the plain old grey gun. I got my Nintendo way back, just after they stopped coming with that weird robot thing with the spinner.

    What was really fun was the big Power Pad thingey that you were supposed to run on for games like Track n' Feild, but instead you just got lazy and sat on the floor and beat the pads with your hands.

    The grey gun is the original. I guess that the orange gun was so that nobody would mistake the gun for a real gun, or something.:rolleyes:

    Waaaaaaayyy back when Nintendo first came out, there was this odd robot thing that I guess was supposed to work with some games (I've never seen one in person), and it twisted left to right if I remember correctly with some sort of disc. It was in the really old commercials for Nintendo.

    The robot worked with the game Gyromite. There were rumours of a second robot game, but I never saw it, and don't remember the title.

    I had the damn robot. It would twist, but it didn't quite line up, thus rendering the game almost impossible. I had the grey gun.

    Yup. Grey gun for me. I've still got my Atari, NES, Sega Genesis, PS2 and XBox. I've got plenty of old school games at my disposal. :D
