There are a lot of great things in Goldeneye 007. The gameplay, mechanics, and multiplayer led to some of the greatest game parties of all time. However, I think that many times, people are mixing their nostalgic memories with how good the game actually is.
Goldeneye 007 made many positive strides
for the FPS genre, but it did some things wrong as well. The controls and aiming are as clunky as you'd expect for a game on the N64, and the multiplayer can only entertain you for so long. Especially in today's market, you have your pick when it comes to first-person shooters. With massive titles like Overwatch and Battlefield, there's just no more room for Goldeneye 007. And we don't blame anyone for not wanting to play it now.
