    Time to bust out Gunstar Heroes. :) Would Sin & Punishment count? It's a run n gun... but in 3D, on rails. Kinda strides into weird territory.

    I would probably put that in an on-rails shooter category. IMO that's a new category by itself, so I think in this instance, it wouldn't fit. Wikipedia defines this it as a "Cabal Shooter" -- kind of a sub-genre of a shooting gallery type of game.

    Maybe try to stick to this list. If it's not on this list and you have a question about it, I'll be happy to answer it for you. Thanks!
