List Rules Vote for the best video game guns from any game type or platform

For as long as we can remember, video games and guns have together like peanut butter and jelly. Although heroes like Mario and Sonic took the high road, there are hundreds of other games that utilize guns as the player's main weapon. There are first person shooters, RPGs, multiplayer games and so much more that feature a variety of interesting, overpowered, and just downright weird guns. Which video game guns are the best? There are thousands of great gaming guns in the history of video games, and they come in all shapes, sizes, and rounds. It doesn't matter if you're a side scroller armed with a blaster or a first-person pistol whipper. It's all about the power! After all, it's not always the newest games that have the most powerful guns.

For example, is the Spread Gun from Contra more powerful than the TMP from Resident Evil 4? Or do you think 007's Golden Gun from Goldeneye 64 could take out someone armed with the Gears of War Hammer of Dawn? Take a look at which guns made the list, then vote for your favorite video game gun that has ever been released.

If you don't see your favorite gun, be sure to add it to the list.
