“It comes with a GUN!,” every kid in America thought when they first saw the Nintendo Entertainment System. Forget that goofy robot—the Zapper is why we all wanted an NES. (Well, that and Super Mario Bros.) We couldn’t have guessed that the Zapper would, like almost every gaming peripheral, be promptly forgotten, with only 18 games supporting it in America over the NES’s long lifespan. We just knew that guns were cool (forgive us, we were kids, and it was the 1980s) and saw Duck Hunt and Hogan’s Alley and immediately knew what we wanted for Christmas or Hanukkah or our birthday. Sure, the Zapper fizzled out fast, and it was easy to cheat, but games like Freedom Force and (again) Duck Hunt were crucial to any well-rounded NES collection. With the 30th anniversary of the NES’s release in America coming up in a couple of months, let’s look back on the 18 games that supported Nintendo’s light gun, ranking them from worst to best.
