I agree with that kid on goldeneye. But i was never big on N64, I was a Playstation 1 person. Besides Banjo, Star Fox, Mario and Zelda i didnt see whats so good about a n64. If you had friends coming over and wanted to play with them then n64 would be cool.
Oh and DFS games like Spyro and Crash still look acceptible today.
I'll make a confession, I'm not a fan of Goldeneye.
I know everyone says it's a great game. For it's time, maybe it was. I didn't have an N64 while it was new (picked up one used about 3 years ago). My buddy had one, so I played many of the big games, but he never had Goldeneye. I remember playing it for 10 minutes at a Toys R Us and loving it.
So, I got Perfect Dark when I got my system. Played about halfway through, and I wasn't enjoying it. I found Goldeneye for cheap and bought it, and I thought it was worse, not what I remembered at all.
Now, I've been a gamer for over 20 years. Grew up with an Atari 2600. I've played many of the most popular games (Mario's, GTA's, etc), and many of the quirky games (Nights, Panzer Dragoon, Ico). Some games hold up (never played Super Metroid when it came out, but it's fun even first time through today), yet some don't. I think there is nothing wrong with nostalgia, but with FPS taking a major leap this generation, I think if your still playing Goldeneye, that's the reason.
I would probably do the same thing he did. Screw around in single-player for a while, play with some friends for about an hour, then go play Halo 2 or something. But it was definitly fun for when it came out. But not so much these days.
P.S. I'm 15.
It's pretty appaling to some of us slightly more aged gamers to see youngsters not acknowledging what a game like Goldeneye for the N64 was. To give you a hint on just how powerful that game was check this out: As a PlayStation 1 fanboy back in the day, I admit that I was VERY jealous at my uncle who owned an N64 and a copy of Goldeneye. And man, when Perfect Dark came out and I played four-player multiplayer *sniff, fights back tears*. Those were some damn powerful memories . . . And to be comepletely honest. I didn't get my own N64 and copy of Goldeneye or Perfect Dark not because of my loyalty to Sony, but rather simply because I couldn't afford to have two systems. Although, I don't regret sticking with PlayStation 1 during those times, I do feel that I was left out on some major action.
The thing about Goldeneye was that it was very new at the time. Sure there were many other FPSes before it, but since it was released, almost every gamer who played it sees every FPS game after it as simply trying to cash-in on it's success and innovation. The gameplay was smooth and just the way you could navigate your person was absolutely captivating. I will always cherish the 5th generation of gaming partly because of this one game (Metal Gear Solid #1!).
haha, i could imagine you being the parent telling the kid "Sit down and shut the fu*k up! Eat Goldeneye BI*CH!" and so forth force feeding goldeneye down his throat of interests...Quote:

well with modern controls its mad easy, steering vision with one analog and moving with another... but back then it was the new ****(analogs) and they were easy to control back then
ah! n64 those were the good days. mario, goldeneye, pilot wings, pokemon stadium?, banjo, starfox, nfl blitz!. Mines actually under my bed right now getting its hardware eaten out by ****oroches LOL!.
True true. It's my favourite FPS.Quote:

I own a..
That kid hasn't even played pokemon? Or Super Mario 64? That kids life is incomplete.
Shame on him.
EDIT: Oh ya though, the new GoldenEye games suck, thanks to EA.. Although I only have played one version, so meh. But from what I've played, it was HORRIBLE.
I think it depends how you were raised, I as a kid played Golden Eye only multiplayer ( my neighboor had it) but If your not exposed to, say ur 10 and you just find out about videogames, then chances are your not ganna give a sh*t about "classics", but also I think if your a real gamer then u should also be playing Super Maio Bros. or w/e. I never had a NES or SNES or even a Genesis the oldest game I played using the actuall sys tem was Donkey Kong Country and MK II, today if it wasn't for roms I would probally be licke that kid tlaking crap about Mario being gay or w/e.
i really don't like using roms that much Mostly becuase if i play stuff on pc it can't usually keep my attention for more than an hour and then i'm bored with the game (half the reason i don't like Half life). i've been raised on the real deal , and i'm glad i was.
Are you saying PC gaming sucks??!!?!Quote:

Also someone bringing up that the storyline was forced... what the hell, most of it is based on the movie so it's not like there's going to be extra suprises along the way.
Multiplayer. Goldeneye FOUNDED FPS multiplayer basics. Every day i'd bring my game cart to my friends house, and controller and we'd all have some three person, free-for-all action, there were no complaints of "Too hard to control" or, "Your player looks like a square, how the hell am I to distinguish you between non shooting squares?". It's quite bull**** if you ask me. Only thing we heard while playing was lots of vulgarity and hatred torward eachother when someone was almost dead but found the body armor :P
and for the record, Doom III, and Halo 2 sucked (in terms of multiplayer, and for the former, the single player).
of course doom 3's multiplayer sucks it's lags like ****in crazy. Halo 2 is alright the only problem is the unbalance thats all.Quote:

I am 14 and the n64 was my early childhood, but then the ps1 came out and knocked nintendo out of my life, except for the gbc I had. That gbc went EVERYWHERE I went.

True. There are only 2 gamers under 17 I know that played and enjoyed the SNES.Quote:

And, BTW, I played Goldeneye before on my friend's N64. It was actually quite good.
