Sure, that old game you loved as a kid might've been a big deal back in the day, but nostalgia is a powerful drug, and they're not as good as you remember.
Golden eye was awesome on 64, I remember how amazed I was seeing little details like soldiers helmets dropping off when u head shot and holding their knees when knee shot. Great times
I tried to give Black a shot more than 10 years after it came out but you just move way too slow, few enemies on large maps. I couldn't get past the forest level which is like the 2nd or 3rd level.
Nostalgia is never that great. I've tried playing old games and only ended up ruining the sweet childhood memories of them.
FF8, Myst and RE2 didn't age imo. i played FF8 (vita) and RE2 (Gamecube) not long ago and they are the same great games they have always been.
Golden Eye aged badly due to the bad controls. Perfect Dark HD proves that old games can be played with improved controls.
I wholeheartedly disagree with Bioshock, and to some degree about RE2. However, time truly hasn't been kind to Goldeneye and Crash Bandicoot, and I would also add games like Final Fantasy VII, Metroid 1 and the Bomberman games on N64.
You guys are smoking crack. Goldeneye 64 and especially Perfect Dark 64 are still awesome games and fun to play. Modern shooters are boring in comparison. I'm tired of bad guys being able to take multiple hits without flinching and continue fighting and then just slumping over dead when you land the final hit. That's not even realistic at all. In this way, the baddies in N64 shooters were much more realistic. You shoot someone in the hand, they drop the gun and hold their hand. You shoot someone in the leg, they grab their leg in pain. You shoot someone's gun out of their hands, they sometimes put their hands up in the air and beg for mercy. That's greater realism than any shooter I've played since!
Would love to see SGT. MK IV make a Brutal Duke mod.
