Cowboy Games

Where the West is Still Wild

Step into the world of the Wild West in these cowboy video games. Historically, a cowboy was a cattle rancher (get it?), who spent most of his time moving herds from one location to another, sleeping under the open stars. But thanks to Hollywood, we've learned to especially romanticize the outlaw and good guy/bad guy lifestyle of America's less-tamed 19th-century frontier.

Prove your manhood (or womanhood) on the back of a raging bull in Cheyenne Rodeo. How long can you last? And even more importantly, how quick can you get away from his horns once your arms give out? Or play a different kind of cowboy – a cowboy cactus – in Cactus McCoy 2. 

Practice your sharp shooting in games like Carnival Showdown. Or practice drawing first in duels and other classic cowboy shooting games like Wild Pistols and Long Way. (Bonus: shooting in video games serious lowers your chances of, um, actually getting shot.) Or show how tough you really are by using your fists instead in Saloon Brawl 2. Or forgo the fight and feed the Wild Westerners instead in Mad Burger 3: Wild West.

Everybody can be a cowboy, for a few minutes or as many hours as they like, in our cowboy games.  So quit your bellyaching and escape from your one-horse town, pick up a six shooter, and show you ain't skeerd. This ain't Westworld – but you ain't paying $40,000 a night neither. When you've got a cowboy craving, wet your whistle with these wild games where the west is waiting to be won – by you.
