Gun Games for Hunting Season
If you are from where I grew up, the first day of deer hunting season is practically a holiday. Schools are cancelled, the roads deserted, pick-up trucks can be seen parked on the side of fields every few miles and bright orange camouflage is the uniform of choice.
Fall is a great time of year. The leaves are changing, hoodie and jeans weather is in full effect and more time can be spent in the warmth of the indoors with your family and friends. With all of this quality time spent indoors what could be better than having an arcade gun game to practice your marksmanship and challenge your skills?
Gun arcade games have been game room standards since the dawn of the arcade video game. Weather you remember sniping waterfowl in Nintendo’sclassic gun arcade gameDuck Hunt or hiding for cover in Time Crisis as you reloaded to unleash a hailstorm of virtual lead into the monitor- chances are that you’ve had a good time or two playing a gun arcade game.
There are a variety of gun games on the market with everything from Aliens to carnival games being your targets but finding the right one for your game room or venue is the key. Here are a few of the gun video games we offer here at Game Room Guys to give you something to aim for with your next arcade game purchase!
Big Buck Hunter
Undoubtedly one of the biggest arcade gun games of all time, Big Buck Hunter has been adorning the corners of bars and game rooms for the better part of the last two decades! Inspired by Duck Hunt, the object of the game is to shoot the male game animals as they run and jump across the screen. Watch out though! The game will have female animals run in front of the males attempting to trick you into shooting the wrong target. To add to the excitement, Trophy animals will bound into frame and attack if you don’t shoot them first!
Up to four players have four game modes to choose from that include turn-based play, head-to-head competition, online play (requiring internet connection) or nothing but bonus round target practice. Take on your friends and family while you simultaneously try to out-shoot one another in one of the many game scenes or just have fun and see how many bonus targets you can hit!
The fun doesn’t stop at game animals though! In Case of Zombies: Doe of the Dead is an upgrade to the game you can purchase to take your Big Buck Hunter arcade game to the next level. Have you ever wanted to fight on the frontlines of the zombie apocalypse? Who hasn’t?! Get your zombie-killing trigger finger ready because not only will you be bustin’ caps in zombie humans but also zombie raccoons, chickens, deer, and even a zombie bear! A great twist on the already fun premise and perfect for Halloween parties!
With the purchase of the Duck Dynasty upgrade players can even go duck hunting with their favorite Duck Dynasty characters as they go on hunting excursions with the Robertsons themselves. The animals are different but the great game- play is the same. Featuring video clips and sound bites from the stars of the hit reality TV show, this is a must-have for any Duck Dynasty fan.
As previously mentioned Big Buck Hunter can go online for the ability to participate in Big Buck Hunter Tournaments against players from all over for cash and prizes, making this a great addition to your bar or restaurant. The repeat business is great for revenue and gives your customers yet another entertainment option!
As with any arcade game this popular, the fact that there is one of these in every bar in America makes it easier to find parts and accessories for your Big Buck Hunter. This will help get your gun arcade machine up and running faster, meaning less lost revenue (and fun) from downtime.
Equipped with a dollar bill validator and coin mechanism, the unit is ready for commercial action, but can also be set to free play for home use. Home models don’t have an online contract and will not have the equipment to put the unit online. The units can be modified at a later date to be online compatible via an installation kit and online contract.
Big Buck Hunter is the clear front-runner in arcade hunting games but if you’re sick of shooting at deer there are other options for the trigger-happy gamer!
It’s up to you to save the human race!
The Aliens Armageddonfirst person arcade shooter is a great option for those looking for a little more action and excitement in their game room.

Players battle side-by-side, or solo, as they blast, shoot and execute scores of alien foes in the battle to leave Earth.
Four chapters lead players on a non-stop shooting adventure through destroyed cityscapes and flaming wreckage. Force feedback guns simulate the gun recoil from each shot, while the deluxe model comes with a massive 55” HD LCD display enforcing the realism and immersing players in the extraterrestrial experience. Cutting edge graphics and sound will have you feeling the alien attack as they swoop, jump and swipe at you.
The giant red cabinet is sure to make a statement in any room and attract young and old to try their hand at shooting down some alien invaders. Cabinet lighting synchronizes with in-game action for even more enveloping game play. Speaking of lighting, the lighted multi-layered alien topper is sure to attract game plays and sets this game apart from anything else around it.
The competition never ends with online leaderboards, so players can check their stats against the best in the world. The game can be set to free play for home use (unless you feel the need to charge your free-loading friends) but operators can set their own prices.
With a theme based on the mega-hit movie franchise, the game’s recognizability will entice players who are familiar with the Alien movies to play, while the action-packed game play and eye-popping cabinet design will attract people who may not even know what Alien is! A great option that involves a little more action than a normal hunting game and might attract someone who’s more into hunting for monsters than for their dinner.
