- "This game holds a special place in most gamers' hearts as it introduced us to the joys of multiplayer FPS games. But GoldenEeye also had a dark side. And by "dark side", I mean "I'm gonna camp the body armor all damn day with a moonraker laser friend, who made the game completely unplayable, and sucked all the fun right out of it". And let's not forget Mr. I'm-gonna-set-up-proximity-mines-on-every-weapon-and-every-ammo-crate-in-the-entire-level."
- —Lasercorn's thoughts on GoldenEye 007
GoldenEye 007is a 1997 first-person shooter game developed by Rare and published by Nintendo, based on the 1995 James Bond film GoldenEye. It was an exclusive for the Nintendo 64 and was released on August 25, 1997. Despite having a development team of roughly 8-10 inexperienced people, GoldenEye 007 was highly acclaimed and sold over 8 million copies worldwide, making it the third-best-selling Nintendo 64 game, and has received multiple year-end awards.
GoldenEye 007 features a single-player campaign in which players assume the role of British Secret Intelligence Service agent James Bond as he fights to prevent a criminal syndicate from using a satellite weapon against London to cause a global financial meltdown. The game also includes a split-screen multiplayer mode in which 2-4 players can compete in different types of deathmatch games.
In 2000, a spiritual successor to GoldenEye 007 titled Perfect Dark was released.
