Melmagazine is having an interesting article about one of my all-time favorite games: Goldeneye 007 on the Nintendo 64. Countless hours we spend their with the multiplayer part in front of an 45cm CRT back in the day. And it was so much fun. And it doesn’t feel like, but Goldeneye is already 21 years old, which was the reason for the linked article below.
The article is – and probably not only if you are a die-hard fan of Goldeneye – definitely worth to read through it in its entirety.
Did you now that Goldeneye was supposed to be just one of these film-license games (no one liked)? A 2D single-player side-scrolling game, pretty much like Donkey Kong Country (which is one of my other all-time favorites btw too)? Or that the multiplayer part was already too late for implementation as only a 2 man team worked on it? They probably tested (read: played) too much….
Even if you are familiar with all of these, head over and read this great article.
