Arcade Rail Shooters Need A Comeback
The first thing I played was Silent Hill arcade which I ended up pumping a few coins into in order to play to completion.
After that I jumped on some kind of Transformers rail shooter that was super fun to play, looked amazing and was bombastic as fuck. The movies suck but I think they work way better as a mindless arcade rail shooter so I don't regret dropping a couple hundred yen into that machine.
The last game I played was Silent Scope: Bone Eater
I wish there were more of these shooting games. Back in the day games like House of the Dead and Time Crisis ruled the arcades but now I barely see them any more. Hopping on one of these either solo or with a friend is one of the most fun experiences ever and it's a shame that they are such a dying breed.
I'll talk about each of these games in much more detail at a later date so watch this space if you want to see me gush about arcade rail shooters.
