Although it could be argued that it isn't technically a video game, because it uses film rather than electronic video signals, Laser Clay Shooting System was Nintendo's first venture into the video game market.

In 1973, bowling was declining in popularity in Japan, so Hiroshi Yamauchi and Gunpei Yokoi thought of this concept to install in deserted bowling alleys. A 16 mm film projector provides moving targets, which players have to shoot with light guns. Smaller models were later manufactured for use in arcades under the name "Mini Laser Clay." This game gave way to Nintendo's many light gun peripherals and games.
