The 15th Anniversary of GoldenEye 007 - A retrospective

Today marks the 15th Anniversary of the release of GoldenEye 007. The game was the number one selling N64 title in the US, outselling Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It was almost re-released on the Xbox Live Arcade and Virtual Console, but was canceled at the last minute. On this historic day, Wii U Only takes a look at this enduring icon of the industry. (Dev, golden eye 64, Goldeneye 007, Industry, James Bond 007, Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Rare, Retro, Timesplitters 2, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Goldeneye established bloody brilliant shooters could of course exist on console despite how pc elitist claim against this. Played a heap of good shooters at the time on pc but frankly they still weren't as much fun as Goldeneye. People claim otherwise but that certainly wasn't my experience. Like any older game, it does initially play differently especially if you say jump from cod, but the gameplay is just as exceptional once you shift back into it- it's just a little jarring at first

Halo came along and cemented the idea that consoles and shooters work just as well

Things great remain so: Doom, Goldeneye, Halo

Nintendo should make a hd remake of goldeneye and add online multiplayer that would be sweet

Rare, the original developers of Goldeneye did make (and finish) an HD remake but Nintendo shut it down.

You can google pictures of it.
