Default Serious Sam: The Rail shooter??

Now, what about that idea? That's never been said has it? HAH! I win! XD

Anyway, Serious Sam would do well in the way of making a rail shooter/ light gun game. [For example, look at Dino Survivor, or Gun Survivor 1-2]

That has some potential for some high action shooting there, without moving. These games are mainly meant for PS2 and X-Box, that's where the issues may be, but still it would work...wouldn't it?

Why DO you think it hasn't been suggested before?


No, I don't like rail shooters, in case you were wondering.

Why not Serious Sam, where player has to wear MoCap devices?
Would be more exciting than Nintendo Wii!

I'm not too sure about this idea

I mean, it'd be ok for enemies who attack with long range weapons but what about Gnaars and Werebulls? The huge enemy count would mean that long-range enemies would be distracting while you're trying to get rid of the melee ones

And don't say "reduce enemy count" because then it'd just be "generic on-rails FPS using SS license"

By some weird reason, I recently got PS2 together with around 200 games.

It would be cool to have something like God of War...

Yeah, GoW is awesome
I have PS2 with similar amount of games too, but I collected them, not received all instantly

What's that got to do with the subject of this thread?
Not trying to force the rules on you guys but why suddenly change topic?

Rail shooter games are mostly console ones, and PS2 is the truest console!

Playing Destroy All Humans at the moment btw.

Good choice SLAwww XD I kinda liked that game. Anywho, the whole point of SS2 was to destroy everything...right? Well the long range enemies distracting you whilst you kill the melee ones is exactly like the normal game, except you cannot run XD

This could work well- really well. But it would need to be extremely well planned- potential issues include:

a: enemy projectiles- how to dodge them. Some (eg reptiloid projectiles) can be shot, but what about instantaneous weapons?
b: weapons-rapid fire v shotguns/ range
c: multiple routes- rail shooters can get very boring without them

Just throwing some ideas out in no particular order.

Serious Sam is meant for high-action battles with lots of baddies at once. Something a rail shooter just isn't meant for. Or at least I haven't seen a good example of it yet.

Imagine fighting arachnoids in an on-rails shooter. It's bad enough trying to dodge it's weapon fire when you have the ability to strafe and jump

The only way to make an on-rails shooter for SS is to make a mod. Nobody can complain and still get the classic gameplay while people who are open to the idea get both

Ah this game is full of full on fight and opting the rail battle for my PS3 is a mere thing. I have played this game a lot and believe me it is pathetic because you keep on shooting without any sense. Yeah of course you can find other battles of course.
