Believe what you want, but I honestly consider this the greatest console FPS in existance. My high school buddies and I probably, no lie, spent 500 hours shooting the crap out of each other (Now, now, don't make fun - just play and you'll understand). We even organized a tournament (OK, now you can make fun). It appears kind of clunky to control at first, but once you get the the control scheme you like you start to pick up on the nuances of this, the perfect console FPS (Hah, Halo?! Please). The first time you communicate to your teammate that you'll be there to help fend off the other team's ambush in "ETA, 10 seconds", run up the stairs at the Stacks, grap the Grenade Launcher, and unleash the holy mother of firey hell upon those unsuspecting players below, you'll get it.
No, I'm not a Nintendo Fanboy. I'm not loyal to any next-gen console or company. In fact, I think games have lost most of their soul in the last 5 or so years, no matter the polygon count of your new fighting game. However, GoldenEye is sheer brillance. You need to spend the time with it, true believers. Get some friends hooked. Dust off that old N64, or march on down to your local GameSpot and buy a used one.
And while you're there, pick up the second-best 4-player console game ever created: Super Smash Bros.
The best FPS game ever. EVER. Not Halo or Halo 2, those games fucking blow. A shining beam of light on the Nintendo 64.
Me and my friends used to stay up all night playing Goldeneye in the 5th and 6th grade.
1) The first James Bond movie to star Pierce Brosnan as Bond.
2) Considered as one of the best video games on the Nintendo 64
"Best game on the N64? Goldeneye, man!"
A game that showed that console fps can compete with fps on pcs. Truely one of the few games that is revolutionary to gaming.
Had a 3 on 1 match last night. I won because I played as Oddjob. Hard to aim at him cause he hovers so low to the ground.
1. The result of a sexual act involving the peeing in someone's eye
2. The compound word refering to an object in the movie "Goldeneye" which is key to the control of two EMP satellites
I gave my ho a nice golden eye last night, to accompany that pearl necklace.
goldeneye is perhaps on of the defining moments in game history although many say it was the inspiration for halo *IE the easy controls and fluid movement that only comes from what many call LEET SKILLZ* although many say it is the whole reason for joy sticks many idiots still believe that nintendo invented shoulder buttons and the joystick its self when in further study atari and the russian space program *responsible for creating a flight simulater that later became a gaming system for many underground fans of classic works which utalized a joystick system to simulate controls long before atari whom invented shoudler buttons though not widley known the second atari system had "shoulder" buttons* but compared to some of todays titles goldeneye is the best shooter ever with its many unlockables, challenging game play from the mediocore agent setting to the ungodly OO agent setting and fun multiplayer games which just beg for online play. all of the game itself was heralded as perhaps nintendos door way into ffps history and heralded a new day for james bond and his spy ways but soon began to crash and burn as all the follow up titles were a big disappoitment and left many wondering why change the system *trying to keep up with modern technology nintendo literally took the wrapper and made it new but in the process poisoned the product* any one that has played any of the newer titles knows what i mean but nintendo has redeemed themselves and sold the license. more evidence ...more...
to pee in someones eye
YO! did you see last night I gave hank such a goldeneye
