Case Closed: Perfect Dark is Superior to GoldenEye 007

Some people need to take off their rose-colored nostalgia glasses and recognize the truth.

I liked Perfect Dark's ability to include bots and roll some co-op multiplayer. Couch multiplayer, man, so underused in today's games.

I agree. Me and my friends created a "zombie" scenario: Eight simulants, all FistSims (so they never used guns), us against them with basic weapons (pistol, magnum, knife, shotgun)... hours and hours of fun.

lol did something similar to that with Timesplitters 2/Future Perfect with Virus mode, played that for hours on end

ZeroChaos1305d ago

I did the same with a friend of mine. When venge sim on the hardest difficulty got you you were in trouble xD fun times :P

Never got around to playing but I will now! Great write-up!

you may want to get it for the N64 though . .the H.D. version for x box 360 is a shame compared to the original one for N64 . . . and Perfect Dark is ANOTHER reason why no other game machine is better than the N64 . . sweet FACT #471

Perfect Dark requires the 8 MB RAM expansion to get the full feel of the game; for Goldeneye a memory card was optional.

I got the game for Christmas one year... the hitch was that I didn't get a Expansion pak with it. It took until my birthday (June 10th) before I got one. If you don't have the expansion park your stuck with only a gimped down version of the VR missions with nothing but one skin for everyone in the game... I beat every single one of those missions before I ever even got to touch the Story.

"GoldenEye fans will vehemently insist that their favorite is somehow actually better than Perfect Dark. This is, of course, despite the fact that it simply is not."

Another blogger trying to pass their opinion off as fact, stopped reading right there. Some people think Goldeneye is better, it's their opinion and they're allowed to have it, get over it.

Hey, thanks for reading the entire article in order to understand my argument, then offering a valid critique! I really appreciate it. :) Your ability to cite opinions that I never actually express (you really think I believe other people are not entitled to differing opinions?) is great!

GalacticEmpire1305d ago

So you're admitting it was a misleading 'bait and switch' headline and article?

Baka-akaB1305d ago

If you present your argument in a piss-poor and flamebait fashion , then you deserve some piss poor answers .

You dont get to call out people's read

"But to claim that GoldenEye 007 is the better game requires leaps of logic based on premises not found in the world of Reality." (From the article)

I agree Galactic, too many try to pass opinions off as facts; and just because a game has a soundtrack that's remixed more than another game personally doesn't really mean much to me - if anything it means a lot of people don't like the original score and would rather have something better.

I could easily write "Why Goldeneye is better than Perfect Dark" however I'd rather leave that to someone else who's bored.

Did you read the article? I thought he made his points really well. Perfect Dark offered similar gameplay with a whole lot more features. Sure, GoldenEye broke ground, but Perfect Dark took that effort to another level.

slaton241305d ago

you state that a goldeneye fan would say their game is better than perfect dark...when in fact you are stating that perfect dark is better than goldeneye....that is nothing more than an opinion...i owned both and loved them both

Of course Perfect Dark is the better game. Better graphics, bots, ability to customize multiplayer characters, multiplayer stats, numerous challenges, more abd arguably better guns, a more complete story (Goldeneye prettu much expected you to have seen the movie and then let you play the best scenes, while Perfect Dark had the whole story), etc. Add co-op and counter-op and you perrty much have one of the most complete package for a FPS game at the time (online multiplayer is missing, but there wasn't much if any online gaming on consoles back then).

I can see why people say Goldeneye is the better game, as it's usually nostalgia or simply the fact that they played Goldeneye more at the time. However, if you were to ask someone who hasn't played any of the games which one is better after a few days of playing each, Perfect Dark would likely win by a landslide.
