Accessories

How many of those old game machines had 'gun accessories' ?
My dads machine had one of theses but I can't remember what he had, were they quite common?

Meph, from what I remember, a lot of the old consoles and home computers had light guns, but they weren't particularly popular due to the cost and the fact that they weren't exactly the best control method and the games were all pretty similar so got boring quickly. Back in those days we didn't want to play ostensibly the same game in a different skin over and over again; nowadays of course, this is acceptable and the norm!

I'm just trying to remember what console he had, It came with a 'gun' and it had a small keyboard.

I think the Master System had a gun. I know the NES certainly did too.

Any of them come with a small keyboard? I recall it having quite a tiny keyboard.
