Why no light gun games?

Have been playing around with light guns for my NES (famicom actually) and it got me wondering why they didn't do it for the N64? It's contemporaries did (playstation, dreamcast) so it's not purely because those types of game fell out of favour. I recon something like House of the Dead would have been great on the N64 (",)

I actually did a lot of research into this! Think you might find it interesting: http://s9.zetaboards.com/Nintendo_64_Forever/topic/7454814/1/

Top work! I'm reading this as I head out the door bnut will devour every word later (",)

Italianbaptist, A finger trigger is not a light gun. The Dreamcast controller had finger triggers ;)

But why an exchange? Why not both? I don't think Rare thought to themselves "Let's see if they have a light gun. If they do, we won't try so hard with Goldeneye"

Having now read Rocky's thread, it does seem likely that Nintendo felt 'stung' after the lacklustre performance of their Super Scope. Pity...
