Goldeneye was so good they went back in time and made a movie about it.

I don't know where to start.
Such an influential and important game to so many people.

License to Kill, Pistols, 5 minutes, Random level.
This game still has it in multi player if played with people who are still into it.

I have so, so much more to add but I might wait till I'm back at work so I can type up properly instead of doing it on a phone ...

I've played through the game so many times before but I reckon I will play through it again.
Hehe, I remember as a kid, other kids would give me their copy of Goldeneye to unlock the cheats. :D

best action game ever, any system. a blue print to action adventure games, not just for FPS's.

the realism of the levels, with the limited hardware available, is unrivalled to this day.

i still think the dam level looks really dam good (no pun intended), maybe my favorite level ever. the concrete is a work of art in its own.

the amount of guns, the secrets, the hidden health packs, the many rooms that are optional, the endless replayability.

then the insane difficulty of 00agent. beating it for the first time felt like finally becoming a man.

the music, the atmosphere. i could run around in the levels just enjoying the scenery / music.

never will we have a FPS of this caliber again, not until the developers decide to bring back health packs / non regenerating health / unlimited gun carrying / cheats / optional paths / non respawning enemies / no QTE's / almost no movies / habing to read your own memos to understand the goal to the mission / the music / the abscence of handholding / and above all the return of british humour...
I haven't played many newer games, except for COD MW2 on PC, but I will say the regenerating health feature is kind of :pottymouth:.
I haven't liked many FPSs since that era but Wolfenstein: The New Order was quite good I have to say.
Minimal use of regenerative health and actually going around collecting armour and health packs.
