Perfect Dark on N64

Old school (for some of us anyway) videogame time! Two words...Perfect Dark! I pulled out my n64 the other day, played this awhile ago and DAMN!! This game was great, and a real real step to what we consider modern shooters today. I'd say GoldenEye was the prototype, but Perfect Dark is what modern FPS truly evolved from. Weapons with secondary fire? Yup Perfect Dark. Enemies that talk and taunt and even cower? Perfect Dark, yup. Although its fun to note that enemy AI in fps games hasnt changed all that much in years.

Overall I'd say that its kinda sad that the newer generations won't be able to go back and truly enjoy this like some of us did. Sure they could set it for download, but the kids wouldnt truly appreciate it. In my dream theyd remake it with a lot of other older games...but I doubt thatll ever happen.

On the positive side, the shooters that are comin out now are pretty wicked fun too! What with Reach and the new COD coming out, Im not complaining or anything!
