During the era of the Nintendo Entertainment System, there was a series of games that made up the Light Gun series. These games were not played with a standard NES controller, but rather the Nintendo Zapper. The Zapper acted similarly to the Wii remote, as the TV would recognize where the player was pointing to on the screen.

Now, three of these Light Gun games have made their way to the Wii U Virtual Console: The Adventures of Bayou Billy, Hogan’s Alley, and Wild Gunman. Each title costs $4.99 USD, and they are available for purchase right now. In place of a Nintendo Zapper, the Light Gun games can played using a Wii Remote.

Will you be downloading these NES classics for nostalgia, or perhaps to try them out for the first time? Let us know in the comment section below.

Darrin W. Harr II
Darrin W. Harr II started gaming at an early age. Even though he was born in one of the later generations of consoles, he started from the very beginning on his grandparents' NES. Playing games such as Wrecking Crew, Super Mario Bros., and Duck Hunt, Darrin spent countless hours of his childhood filled with the entertainment and joy these games brought him. In his later years, he took a big step up and started to familiarize himself with his uncle's Nintendo DS. It was then when he became obsessed with one of the best Game Boy titles of all time, Astro Boy: Omega Factor. After becoming stuck and very frustrated with the game, he pulled out a game cartridge from his uncle's DS bag. As Darrin read the inscription on the cartridge, clouds parted and sunlight shown through the window: the game was titled, "The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass." Darrin played this game to his heart's content, until one day, his grandmother bought him Spirit Tracks, the sequel to Phantom Hourglass. This was the first Zelda title that Darrin actually finished, and the Zelda title that transformed him into a member of the Zelda fanbase. It was then when he decided to play more Zelda games, such as Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword. In 2013, Darrin became fascinated with a website know as Zelda Informer. Reading their news coverage and in-depth editorials, Zelda Informer helped Darrin to realize that The Legend of Zelda series contains a vast amount of interesting lore. He needed to learn more. After reading numerous Zelda wiki articles and Zelda Informer editorials, Darrin eventually applied to the website, and was accepted around New Year 2015. He later joined Gamnesia in November 2015. Also, yes, Darrin wrote this in the third-person. Twitter: @realDern
