One of the greatest game developers ever. They gave us sexy N64 games like Banjo Kazooie, Banjo Tooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark, and some others. The GameCube seemed like a good upgrade for Rare, better graphics and controls would allow them to create even awesomer games. However the company was royally fucked up the ass by Microsoft, destroyer of all that is fun and cool. Because of this we will never see a good Banjo sequel (but rather a crap game where our favorite bear and bird look like retarded homosexuals and build cars), we will have to play the completely destroyed lump of shit Perfect Dark Zero, and Video Gaming as we know it will never be the same. However I still have my N64, fully working to remind me of how great Rareware used to be.
Me: Time to play Rareware's new Perfect Dark Game, I bet its better then the N64 version!!!
*puts in game and begins playing*
Me 10 minutes later: I'm gonna go fucking hang myself.
Me 10 years ago: OMG!!! Banjo Kazooie, Conker, Perfect Dark!!! these guys at Rareware really knoe how to make a good game. They'll never sell out to a bigger company just for the money and produce crappy games... never!
