Not to talk about the web shopping thingy, which is filled with horrendous buggy crap, it's 10x worse than randomly downloading some linux game with apt-get, no, they've got fake screenshots, and fake reviews. Making you buy the game before noticing you've been ripped off. I wouldn't play most of these games even if I was paid to do it.
You got an example of this? I've never seen anything at all in the eShop like you're talking about.
Are you sure you didn't get some weird Chinese night market knock-off 3DS?
Just last week I found myself playing Duck Hunt briefly, for the first time in probalby around 18 years. Is there any equivalent sort of game on any other system? I don't see how that genre could have possibly been a dead end.
If you're talking about light gun games in general.... PS1(?) and PS2 both had Time Crisis and Point Blank (a Great game) The Wii has the House of the Dead series. I seem to remember the Dreamcast having a fair amount of shooters on it as well. Not sure about the PS3 but I've yet to see anything for the Xbox360 (or a gun for that matter)
