It's kinda hard to group Doom and Duke Nukem in with Turok as they were already established series way before the N64 came out. I do think you're on to something with comparing and contrasting the Goldeneye "series" (including Perfect Dark in this) and the Turok series. Both original games were major releases early in the N64's lifespan and paved the way for the genre's future at the very least on the console.

The questions I would ask are:
What were the primary differences between Goldeneye and Turok at the time?

How did each of those games further develop those differences to stand out on the N64?
(Or did they at all? Did they become more similar over time as each perhaps borrowed ideas from the other?)

What's the connection between these older games and the newer games you're suggesting add another bud to the branch?

Idk if it's a matter of age, it's just that neither of those games are primarily N64 games. The 2 main ones to compare would be Goldeneye and Turok and their respective sequels.

I never got the chance to own either one but when I played them at friends' houses I remembered the controls being different, but I also have heard that that's not as big of an issue because both had multiple control schemes. Would the primary for both be "move with the stick, aim with the c buttons"? Because that model is still technically in use today, just with a right analog stick.
