So I’m told Bulletstorm came out yesterday, a self-proclaimed “balls to the wall” shooter that Fox News thinks is going to turn children into rapists. A lot of the focus is on the vast array of weaponry you can use in the game, which lets you do cool kill combos and such. I’m not buying this as I’m told it’s pretty short, but I’ll give it a rent someday.
Anyway, it got me thinking back to what some of my favorite video game guns have been. I’ve played an ass ton of shooters in my day, so there’s a lot to choose from. I’ll open up the floor for debate, but I’ll just pull a few of mine off the top of my head.
Goldeneye – The RCP-90. How could you not love that thing?
Perfect Dark – The Laptop Gun. Completely unfair.
Halo 3 – Spartan Laser. There’s nothing more gratifying.
Modern Warfare 2 – Silenced UMP45. Run and gun.
Black Ops – AUG extended mag. Won’t know what hit them.
Borderlands – Pestilent Defiler Acid Revolver. Eats through armor, skin, whatever.
Alright, how about you?
