    The title says it all. I heard rumors, but never new if they were really true or not. I just got a nes system but have no games. I am currently wondering what to buy and what not to buy. I came across duck hunt but I heard that the gun doesnt work with a flat screen tv. If this is true, is there any sort of workaround or something?

    No you can't use duck hunt with an LCD or Plasma TV, I've done tons of net searching for a workaround and found nothing. I ended up hooking it up to an old tv for awhile until I got sick of playing it. The second best way to play Duck Hunt is to use a Wii with Tantrics SNES emulator and turn your controller to the zapper and it gives you crossairs on the screen to kill some ducks.
