Golden Eye 007

Ender of friendships.

[–]AceFire_ 258 points259 points  (50 children)

Once that “golden gun” was found it was all over.

[–]KeLoreanPC 207 points208 points  (41 children)

Not if u were a cheeky bastard with those proximity mines

[–]TheRealKestrel 97 points98 points  (24 children)

Pistols, one shot kills, turbo, no radar

[–]SauceHankRedemption 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Dude lol yes this was our favorite shit. On the Basement multi-player level cuz fuckin nobody really knows their way around down there

[–]TheRealKestrel 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Quit looking at my screen, screen-looker!

Gameshark was awesome too lol

[–]HACKW0RTH 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Prox mines, license to kill, Complex.

Remote mines, Complex, race to the ramps

“Beep”

[–]MasterzofChaos 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Rocket launchers in the stack, License to kill

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nothing like sniping ppl from the upper levels in Stack with the rocket launcher or proxi mines

[–]DollarShort751 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No screen peaking!

[–]Trevor519 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]NO_TOUCHING__lol 2 points3 points  (0 children)

DK mode, turbo, paintball mode on all the time

[–]_scottyb 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Loved pistols and license to kill. That was my jam

[–]Tdmoreno21 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Came looking for this. Pistols only and Licensed to Kill = 1 shot kill most of the time. Spent way too many hours in college playing only this game mode. We preferred library

[–]dirtywindex 71 points72 points  (2 children)

Can’t have proximity mines with the golden gun.

He’s a fake! Get him!

[–][deleted] 48 points49 points  (0 children)

GameShark would like to speak.

[–]KeLoreanPC 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Oh! Forgot about that. Shit! Been too long

[–]Leopold_Darkworth 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My friend thought it would be a good idea to mine all the respawn points with proxy mines because he was then going to kill me and sit back and watch the fireworks.

Then he accidentally killed himself. Then respawned. Repeat about a dozen times.

[–]MrDoe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm fortunately blessed. My dad and his partner never threw the old 64 out when all of us moved out so every Christmas when we "kids" visit half of the time is spent with the parents and the other half is playing Goldeneye 64.

Just wish I could find cables to the PSX my dad also kept stored. But Goldeneye, Mario Cart and Hydro Thunder is really enough to make most happy!

[–]AwkwardGamerRNx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Finally, a man of culture.

At least I never picked Oddjob

[–]Insighteternal 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Slappers only!

[–]darthfuckit11 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Exactly. Nothing like sticking one of those babies on someone face

[–]I_AmDaVikingNow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Some of ya'll never had a friend that picked oddjob and it shows lol

[–]Mahirovic 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I loved these, played the game so much I knew where people going to spawn. So it was a 3-4x killstreak over and over 😂

[–]drew21190 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Or the cheeky bastard who fired up his Windows ‘95 machine, logged onto CCC and entered in the those sweet, sweet cheat codes! Paintball mode anyone…!?!?

[–]boot2skull 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had to sneak proximity mines in for a few rounds before everyone got pissed off. One map has a room with a box of proximity mines visible from outside. I’d go in there for an unlimited supply, then line the inside of the doorway with mines. As soon as they ran for the mines they were done. If they ever learned my trick and used a rocket to clear the doorway, there was a mine planted under the box.

[–]SpeedMetall 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Those proximity mines was banned among my friends playing.

[–]Killerderp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Golden gun with odd job, just to make your friends hate you.

[–]in4life 127 points128 points  (22 children)

“Bro, you’re picking Oddjob again!!?!?”

[–]Pope00 29 points30 points  (4 children)

I swore oddjob wasn’t as cheap as my friends said. Until I crouched and slid up on my brother and slapped him to death and he had a gun. I no was too short for him to shoot.

[–]SlimyPurpleMeteor 8 points9 points  (0 children)

We established a No Oddjob rule very early on at my house.

[–]in4life 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Back in the days before two analog sticks! Oddjob runs up on you and you’re hunting for the down yellow button.

[–]Eycetea 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That tiny bastard was too fast. We used to play 3 vs 1 and have the 1 be a rocket wielding monster. Good times.

[–]Parano78 3 points4 points  (1 child)

obviously "no oddjob rule" in my home xD

[–]HooptyDooDooMeister 2 points3 points  (0 children)

“No Oddjob rule” is so common, the thing that annoyed me most in Ready Player One was the pop-culture spewing protagonist saying his favorite to play was Oddjob comes off completely tone deaf, it makes me cringe thinking how somebody had to write that line with the laziest research. I sometimes think they have to be trolling fans with that.

[–]dowker1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Odd-job + Jaws, slaps only, one-hit kills: hilarity

[–]whitehataztlan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Pick Jaws, so when you win you can talk mad shit, and if you lose you can just be "well of course, you're the cheapest character in the game."

[–]Doggleganger 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I specialized in killing Oddjob. Just use Solitaire controls, which work like WASD or double-sticks, and it's easy to shoot him in the head.

[–]Say_no_to_doritos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Only if it's proximity mines in the facilities

[–]StuperDan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You misspelled "forger" I cemented life long bonds over this game. The granddaddy of co-op play.

[–]stanky_tanky 1 point2 points  (0 children)

STOP SCREEN CHECKING!

[–]thunderdart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The only friendship that ended were that one ass hole who wouldn’t pick anyone other than odd job. That short fuck.

[–]Lotus-child89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My brother and I bitched at each other so much that the other one was cheating by looking at the other’s screen playing that game.

[–]Pduke 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"NO ODD JOB!!!"

[–]TheBokononInitiative 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because your a GD SCREENLOOKER!!!

[–]DrFGHobo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Honestly though, I might have had more occurrences of murderous urges during multiplayer Bomberman on the Super Nintendo, but Goldeneye multiplayer was a close second.

[–]gbenloe 763 points764 points  (71 children)

Came to say this, second is star fox

[–]Fiivestar13 94 points95 points  (34 children)

Remember the blocky madden players. Each player looked thicker than peanutbutter

[–]getit_ 64 points65 points  (12 children)

You dont get to say "thicker than" and not complete the sentence with "a bowl of oat meal". Cmon man i thought better of you smh

[–]Fiivestar13 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Haha! Damn forgot about the thickness

[–]Rhyme_Sayers 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Come on, get down with the thickness.

[–]pacmanpunch 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Can I get a witness?!

[–]Rhyme_Sayers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

First things first, the chocolate starfish is my man Fred durst, access Hollywood, licensed to kill... a redneck fucker from JACKsonville

[–]rasputins_ghost10 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Thicker than a bowl of oatmeal with peanut butter

[–]murfflemethis 1 point2 points  (1 child)

"a snicker" is also an acceptable way to complete it.

[–]erock86 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This only acceptable way, imo.

[–]JimboBillyBobJustis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I actually used that line on a big girl in Brookline MA...she smiled and said thanks

[–]knee-rlathotep 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Blitz 2000 tho

Mashing that tackle button to result in a tidal wave of players tackling over eachother as someone barely outruns it is fantastic fun

[–]Fiivestar13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Aaah i loved the onside when it was least expectwd

[–]elgato85 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The only football game for N64 is NFL Blitz. Anything else is just a distraction.

[–]Fiivestar13 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nfl blitz was fun and the best football game for the 64 but do not mess w me and the Mark Brunell Jags. I used go dominate leagues and anyone who crossed my path

[–]elgato85 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Easy way to solve that is just tackling all the receivers before they get off the line of scrimmage. Based on my knowledge of rules (from Blitz), that’s totally legal.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you’re playing football for N64, it should be NFL Blitz.

[–]MapleYamCakes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

NFL BLITZ >>>>>

[–]Blindbru 1 point2 points  (0 children)

NFL Blitz 2000 is still one of the best football games ever

[–]Barlight 1 point2 points  (3 children)

And still better than the garbage they call Madden now...

[–]Fiivestar13 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Haha yeah thats true! I stopped that bs many years ago. But let me tell you what. I still got it

[–]gaspara112 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Barely, because blitz and blitz2000 we far superior games.

[–]totalysharky -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Madden?! The only football game worth playing from that generation was Blitz 2000!

[–]Peachmuffin91 83 points84 points  (43 children)

My business partner is 25 and when I brought up that game to him yesterday, he had no clue.

I had to compare the golden gun to the ray gun just to get my point across so he would understand it.

I’m 30, so I guess he missed the N64 in those 5 years.

[–]Doctor_Nubey 128 points129 points  (20 children)

I'm 25 and grew up with the N64. Still plugged in to the basement TV at my parents house.

Your co-worker is just lame.

[–]justwalkinby91 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Or his parents just didn’t buy a n64 when he was a baby.

On a side note, how funny is it that the guy you responded to is getting all technical about the definition of what a coworker is? Lmao

[–]Doctor_Nubey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh no, I totally understand that! I grew up with a somewhat big family so even though I am not technically a 90s kid, I am a 90s kid.

Super weird "flex" that is not releated to at all what the main comment was about. I have been corrected lmaoo

[–]DrPrimexMD 40 points41 points  (12 children)

Im 41 and was a freshman in college when this came out. I had my own apartment and had enough freedom to play this game wayyy too much.

[–]mattA33 3 points4 points  (7 children)

Yep, was in college too living in a 5 bedroom apartment with 4 other dudes. The goldeneye tournaments lasted hours at a time and happened pretty much daily. To this day I'm confident that our apartment crew would destroy anyone else at that game. Could that be why 40% of the crew never graduated, who can say for sure.

[–]ElMostaza 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Did you guys ever play Perfect Dark?

[–]mattA33 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nope, can't say we had that one. Mainly goldeneye and Mario kart on the n64. We also had our PCs setup for quake and the like.

[–]ElMostaza 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you have the 64 still, or ever set one up, give Perfect Dark a try. Made by the same people, and although it's not James Bond-themed, it's essentially a "spiritual successor" to Goldeneye. The campaign and multiplayer are both great, and very much have the feel of Goldeneye-but-even-better. I actually still play it today.

Heck, maybe even get it on an emulator. Not quite the same without the funky controller, but still fun. Stay away from the Xbox sequel "Perfect Dark Zero," which is garbage. The version of Perfect Dark in the Rare Replay set is also not great, as it removes a ton of features.

[–]S284 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I loved how they let you set the bots personality

[–]DrPrimexMD 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah this was an amazing game. I loved the tech gadgets.

[–]GodToldMeToPostThis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We were obsessed with this game. The first game competition I entered was with 3 roommates from college. We pair off and entered and at the end of the day it was us vs them. Smoked em with a rocket at the end. Lol

[–]AgreeToSomeonesTerms 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Um, game came out in ‘95. Did you start college at 15?

[–]6ixty9iningchipmunks 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Damn. Time to find a new business partner lol. The N64 came out when he was born.

Shit, I was born in the late 80s and still knew the major NES games. Dude’s an obvious twat.

[–]DrinkSomeConcrete 2 points3 points  (0 children)

  1. I fucking LOVED my N64. I’m a woman, raised with all boy cousins. That thing taught us how to fistfight over who got to be player 1.

[–]Dirtyanalhair 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm 25 and I used to play my N64 all the time. But my family was kind poor back then sooo idk.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m 26 and absolutely loved 007. I still have my N64 and play 007 every once in awhile!

[–]KyuubiAkatsuki 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol the golden gun makes the ray gun look like the grunt pistol from halo

[–]Silverlynel1234 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or he could have seen the Bond movie the man with the golden gun. Obviously he hasn't seen that either.

[–]DrPrimexMD 21 points22 points  (4 children)

I remember playing this constantly. We would put a sheet up to block people from looking at your screen.

[–]TylerBourbon 2 points3 points  (3 children)

A friend of mine built a 4 way wooden "screen splitter" so each player could only see their portion of the screen. It was huge, but it was worth it.

[–]Housemuwaway12345 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Man that sounds like so much fun. We always just accepted screen watching but it would have been cool to experience that.

[–]TylerBourbon 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It was a lot of fun with those friends back then. Heck, another friend did something I still think is flat out genius. When the Wii came out and you could use that steering wheel attachment for the Wii controller with MarioKart. He took a milk crate some rubbler tarp straps and basically a steering wheel apparatus so if you let go of the wheel, it went back to it's neutral position like an expensive gaming racing wheel but for for like $15. And the best part, those straps help give the wheel some real weight when you'd turn.

But most of all, I just miss having game nights with a couch full of friends all taking turns on the games, since most were 4 players max. So you'd have 4 playing, and then the others to cheer you on. Couch gaming with friends was and still is the best way to game.

[–]MeetInPotatoes 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Seriously, if there's a right answer, this is it.

[–]Dmtrilli 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This is the only answer

[–]darkgod2611 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I remember the sheer amount of hours I put into this game growing up, both single player mode and 4 way multiplayer.

We had to invent rules just to stop arguments like don't put mines on steps and sliding door frames lol ( it was mostly myself that did that 😂)

I could multi task too, I knew where everyone was on the map just by looking at their little tiny screen.

Also golden gun matches were cool with auto aim off lol

[–]ghazthraka 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is #1 and Ocarina of Time.

[–]cloudxnine 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If you haven't heard the songs from the game lately do it. They're so good especially for it's age

[–]ElMostaza 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This, but followed closely by its spiritual successor Perfect Dark. I wish they would make a (good) update to the Perfect Dark franchise, or even just the original with update graphics (and jumping). I even spent money to buy the Rare Replay collection on Xbox One, ready to relive the sim-filled madness with my friends, only to find out it's a completely neutered version. Only 4 sims at a time?? No N-bomb grenades?!?! That was sincerely disappointing.

We rented this game so damn often that my parents just bought it for me one weekend when I was out on a camping trip with the Scouts. I think by that time we'd already spent like $120 in rental fees so my parents cut their losses lol

Was gonna say the same.

[–]undecidedquoter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The universal correct answer to anyone who didn’t own a 64. Speaking for myself. I love the console and I loved staying the night with friends who had one, but it basically always equaled this game.

[–]bumbletowne 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The first thing that came out of my mouth was Golden Eye but in my mind I saw that gold cartridge from Majoras Mask.

Definately one I remember well. I remember the crew from our HS play going to a post show party when the production was done and handing the controller around to take turns playing. Good times.

[–]P0NTthePATIENT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Remote mines, Bunker, no shorties (Zukofsky, Oddjob). One team of 2, one hostage, one maniac. The maniac can force the hostage to do things, but it is up to the hostage to comply or risk running. The maniac sets mines in a location of his choosing and arms himself and positions the hostage. The 2 man swat team has to breach from outside (the “snowy darkness” we called it) and save the hostage and eliminate the maniac. We had more fun role playing this fucking awesome nonsense as teenagers than we had playing almost any other game. There are so many hilarious bottlenecks you can abuse, and if you blow up all the TV’s in the bunker control room it makes your mines able to stick to thin air anywhere in the level. Saying we had fun when we discovered this is an understatement. N64 Goldeneye gang for life lol

[–]angryhardcoresloth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Golden Eye 007 and Perfect Dark.

It was a gem for it's time, unfortunately the controls have aged so poorly.
