Way to rekindle more memories guys, hence making me want to go play them more, hence the inverse of why I started this thread. :-[

I can't imagine going back to N64 and playing 007 with a controller.....not after being a FPS player on PC with a mouse. I'd go nuts.

Playing Goldeneye for the first time in a long time is really weird. The controls take a while to get used to, but all those hours that the true 007 player logged night in and night out in those strenuous 4 player power weapons deathmatches, will take you back to a marksman.

Man I love that game. ;-D O:-)

If you play 007 or Perfect Dark now you will notice considerable frame rate issues, which is crazy to me, because at the time I never thought twice about any kind of frame rate issues and was just purely mesmerized by the innovation in the game.

Also going back to a shooter that doesn't use both the x and y axis to aim the gun is infuriating, which is also funny, because I strongly objected to having to adjust to having to use two joystickes to aim when that first came into effect.

That's another thing.....4 way screen split. Not cool. Good luck trying to surprise someone. It got to the point where I'd just take a quick glance across and know exactly where everyone else was on the map.

Good times though. :-D

That brought an interesting dynamic though, everyone would be able to look and it took some guile to be the one that properly uses the ability to screen watch.

I love how everyone would deny screen watching, yet it was quite obvious everyone would do it.

I would let it be known that I was a screen watcher. It took skill to keep an eye on everyone's screen, including your own.
