8-​bit NES versus HDTV

A few months ago I shelled out for a flat-​screen LCD. It is more energy efficient than my old CRT and much nicer for watching movies, which is almost all that we use it for. We also use it to play games on my original NES. Unfortunately, as I just recently discovered, I can’t use the light gun with this TV. Hogan’s Alley and Duck Hunt don’t work, because the LCD screen isn’t made of glass, and therefore won’t reflect the light back into the gun in such a way that my NES can figure out if I shot the duck or not. Alas.
