Weren't early FPS titles like Doom often referred to as corridor shooters? That seems to be the difference in my mind in that games like GoldenEye and Turok moved the action to more expansive outdoor environments.

Personal note: back during the N64 era, I didn't really care too much for first-person-shooters preferring third-person-shooters like Armored Core instead. Years later I did love playing the original Halo, though, because me and my friends would network several Xbox consoles together for some amazing LAN parties. I guess Halo changed my perspective enough that nowadays all I seem to play on my PlayStation 4 are Call of Duty games. :P

Since TimeSplitters has been mentioned, are the GameCube versions still playable today? Which is better TimeSplitters 2 or TimeSplitters: Future Perfect?

Back around the time TimeSplitters: Future Perfect was released on the GameCube, I recall hearing that it was pretty good in multiplayer. Never got a chance to experience it myself but all my friends who were fans of GoldenEye and Perfect Dark spoke very highly of it.

I was considering buying a used copy of FP and then noticed that it's still rather expensive for such an old game. I wonder if that's because of popularity or because not that many copies were produced?

It'd be fun if TimeSplitters Rewind ends up finding its way to the Switch. :D
