RockofAges: Space Station Wagon: starsrift: Egoy3k: scottydoesntknow: What design and technical flaws? Honestly asking, no snark involved.

Technical flaws would be...

Don't bother. It was dreck. But it was the first time consoles saw multiplayer FPS, so it was popular. A milestone for gaming. It's like Wolfenstein3d. Stupid dreck, but it got popular, not because it was a good game, but for the other reasons.

videogame hipsters how tedious.

Yuuuuuup. These guys obviously came to gaming late in life, or never had friends to play with.

Egoy upthread "I've owned every console SINCE I WAS 12!!!!!" Wow, that's hardcore. I was playing Atari 2600 when I was 5, NES 6, and Vic-20 / C64 when I was 8. I was head builder for a MUD in the 90s with a friend (coder) with a constant 20+ playerbase any time of day (Ack! base).

You don't see me in here acting like a high falutin deweshhhhhhhhhh. I don't even "love" Goldeneye but I surely did back then, and so did every single other person I ever met who played video games in that era.

Maybe Egoy / Star were just off playing the latest moe IF manga in the 90s, like the rest of the cohort?


I was having a f*cking blast with Duke Nukem 3D and its level editor when other folks were playing GoldenEye. I don't think that makes me a 'gaming hipster'... just someone with a system that (still!) runs FPS's in a superior method.
GoldenEye was popular because it was a first. It was also a lack of comparable options for a lot of console users. It was great, for them. But it was also not a very good game. And that's fine. Games don't have to be paragons of design and quality to be popular. Sometimes you just have to be in the right place, at the right time. And that was GoldenEye.

Space Station Wagon: Random Anonymous Blackmail: MugzyBrown


Random Anonymous Blackmail: In the days before time

Joe let me down.

I had that on PC (I think) and loved it.


I had it on the Sega Genesis system.. and it was the "Sports Talk" version. Graphically it was far superior to Madden (in its time) but it didn't flow smoothly and the AI was just awful or impossible.

The commentary was just annoying and repetitive.

You had Joe Montana 2 Sports talk.
and BTW it was groundbreaking. It was a solid football game and it had a full voice over.
No other football franchise had that. Hell no other sports game had that.

So I'm guessing you are a devoted fan of Call of Duty then/


As I've gotten a little older I'm having a hard time with all of the gun violence so "shoot'em ups" aren't really much of my thing anymore.
(However I do love Batman Arkham City, while Batman won't kill you he also won't hesitate to put you in traction for the rest of your drastically shortened life)

However to answer your question I played CoD 1, 2, 3 (PC versions) and played through the single player of Modern Warfare (xbox360).
Whichever CoD that had the storming of Normandy was a great game. Also one of them had you start at the Volga river as a Ruski with out a gun, that was a pretty good one too. I also liked the story in Modern Warfare.
As for multiplayer military shoot'em ups in that time frame I hosted a server for TF, CS, DoD, (only one on the block to have cable for almost a year)
also played a battlefield 1942, Vietnam, BF2 (all pc). The only new-ish console FPS I played multiplayer I played for any length of time was BF:BC 2 (xbox 360).

So while I'm not a specific CoD multilayer fan I can see why others enjoy it.
I agree with you just because something is popular doesn't make it good. I also agree with you that Goldeneye wasn't good, it was great! The whole idea of gaming is to have fun and the N64 ( with goldeneye, mario cart, wave race, smash bros, f-zero, San Francisco rush, wrestling) and couch based multilayer brought it by the bucketful. I don't remember poor draw distances or a janky sound effect. I remember the hours of laughter, the cases of beer, and the trash talking.
