World of Guns has turned out to be surprisingly addictive. Also incredibly educational and useful consumer research as well.

Also, the M16A1 in the supergame mode was agony.

156 individual parts. It's like everything on that gun is spring-loaded.

To put that in context, the AK-47 has 63 parts, the Sig SG522 Commando has 90, and the MP5 has 70.

Red was good to spam along with your punch in a crowded melee while purple was the great demolisher even if it had more limited ammo.

Its cool when the MCs in JRPGs still use proper real life weapons but not a boring old sword. Suikoden has a few examples of that like the first game its a Staff and the protagonist in the second game its Tonfas. Nice to have a bit of variety in these things.

Been playing alot of Sunset Overdrive recently.
It has a number of interesting & unusual guns (and different weapons shine in various situations so you want to have a variety in your weapon wheel) but in my heart nothing beats the style and power of carrying around this monster of a revolver you get early on.

Is useful throughout the game when it comes to downing big targets.

This makes me think.

In jrpgs it often would make much more sense that you just 'upgrade' the characters starting weapon through game mechanics to keep it useful as you grind up, instead of buying random generic weapons in stores/finding random weapons in dungeons that so happen to be increasingly strong.
This specifically would make the most sense in games where the character's starting weapon is supposed to be special or have meaning to them and thus they wouldn't just drop it for some random weapon.

That doesn't make sense realistically though, a sword made out of better materials will perform better than a generic one you start with. Only difference is that you may need a short while of practice to get used to the weight of the old one.
I mean in JRPG terms where the sword is made out of the kidney stone of jesus and buddha and has a level 128 demon sealed inside, sure, then you can level it up. But it's not like, if you make enough kills with a PK7 it will evolve into a Desert Eagle.

Regardless, there are some games that allow you to upgrade weapons. Disgaea series comes to mind.

Is the signature Lancer from GoW cool or tryhard? Can never quite decide.

Like the idea of a chainsaw bayonet on your assault rifle is cool, but if you actually look directly at the gun the saw appears pretty fragile and more likely to shred your hand by accident than the enemy.
And GoW in general is just an entire game series that tries too hard.

Seems like it would be done better in a setting which was more flamboyantly over the top instead of grim & grimy soldier mans fighting in dirty grey ruins

Love the main character's assault rifle in Binary Domain. Sure it mostly looks like a near-future tactical soldierman primary weapon but its the underslung force blaster as a secondary function that makes the thing stand out.
Its just a good feeling weapon to have in gameplay as your default option for every situation.

Does the fist in Doom count? If you grab a berserk pack, it's as strong as a rocket launcher for the remainder of the level.
The Shotgun is a tier 2 weapon but it remains your primary gun for the rest of the game (not counting Doom 2).

Skeletons in HOMM3 are also your lowest tier units for Necromancers, but they remain your primary attackers due to how many of them you can get due to the necromancy powers.

The small chainsaw was really powerful in the first game but Dead Rising also had some cool original ideas with its Combo Weapons that showed up from the second instalment onwards.

Though... out of all of them the one that I remember most readily is not anything too fancy or unusual but just taping a sledgehammer and a fire axe together.
The components were easy to acquire and yet it was good basic tool for smashing through zombies.
Likewise the Knife Gloves were really strong too and I don't think much harder to find the parts for.

The golden gun was good as a secret weapon and all but THIS was a super beast gun in Goldeneye. And you could even double wield the thing with the Grenade Launcher during the story without resorting to glitches.
It kind of shocked me when I went back to the game and realized it was just a P90, it always seemed so much more beefy a weapon when playing as a kid.
