Today I saw a status update from a friend on Facebook about the infamous GoldenEye 007 from the Nintendo 64 being remade exclusively for the Wii. After looking it up and seeing a clip, sure enough, the greatest first person shooter game of all time is being remade. This brings back a bit of nostalgia for me, as when this game was originally released I was 12, and my friends and I played this game for literally hundreds of hours and still to this day proclaim it as one of the greatest games of all time. I remember it was one of the biggest accomplishments of Chase’s as far as gaming went, because he beat the game 100%, even through the hardest mode available, 007 Agent.
I’m a bit out of touch when it comes to games nowadays. I can’t sit long enough to get very interested in one without feeling like I’ve wasted away a piece of my life. I miss the old days when sitting inside and trying to beat the next level was the life—no other worries whatsoever. Yet, I must admit that I was excited when I first saw this. Perhaps we’ll buy this game and play it, if for anything else, as a reminder of all the good times we had with it when it originally came out.
