It's hard to believe, but it's actually ten years since GoldenEye was released on the N64. It was groundbreaking game on all fronts; visuals, weapons, controls, and of course, multiplayer.
The interesting part is, GoldenEye was barely marketed, and when it was shown at E3 a few months earlier, it received almost no attention at all. It took everyone by surprise when it was released, getting perfect a score from many publications, and went on to sell 8 million copies worldwide. It is undoubtedly one of the greatest game ever made, and holds a special place in many gamers' hearts.
