I recently discovered I really like rail shooters, but I've only played Panzer Dragoon and Sin & Punishment.
What else would you recommend?

Well like I said I barely know anything about the genre, but I liked those two games a lot

Star Fox 64
Space Harrier

Gold standard of the genre imo.

Star Fox, the SNES one.

Time Crisis is my railgun shooter of choice.
Killer 7 is an interesting alternative (go with the Steam version, it's more smooth there).
Vampire Night is sick as shit.

Riot is kind of like Sin & Punishment. It's an obscure arcade game playable on MAME.

rail shooters are literally on a rail, hence the name rail shooter. Moving a character around makes it a 3D shooter. Anyway try Omegaboost.

This is one of the most batshit crazy arcade games I've ever played.
>>
>>7719497
You are completely on rails in sin and punishment.

>>7719447
Is this the first game to ever utilise a cover system then? I'm sure I read something recently that cited Operation Winback as such. I guess even Time Crisis was an early pregenitor.

The holy trinity:
Space Harrier
Night Striker
Burning Force

Also, Sin & Excrement blows.

>Panzer Dragoon
If Panzer Dragoon is a rail shooter then so is Star Fox. And Star Fox is fun

I like Resident Evil: Gun Survivor. A lot of people dislike it, but since you, like me, enjoy rail shooters you may like this game.

Stay forever assmad they developed games exclusively for Nintendo, Australia-kun.
>>
>>7721372
Who's Australia-kun?
>>
>>7721382
Chronic shitposter and falseflagger that hates Nintendo and anything associated with them because their games and systems are more popular than his Amiga Eurojank and because they would always give PAL territories the shaft.

Sin and Punishment Star Successor is the best in the genre
