TOP 100 ON-RAILS GAMES

On-rails games are like being on a theme park ride, except you get to shoot things and pretend you're a total badass. Players love this genre because it's the perfect blend of action and convenience - you don't have to worry about pesky things like exploration or decision making, you just follow the path and shoot everything that moves. It's like being a highly trained soldier without any of the hard stuff. And if you're looking for the best on-rails games out there, you've come to the right place. This site has curated a list of the top games in the genre, so you don't have to waste your precious shooting time sifting through inferior titles. So grab your controller (or light gun, if you're feeling extra retro) and get ready for some mindless fun - because sometimes, that's all you need.
