Sadly I don’t own my N64 anymore, but love reminiscing about the day of playing Super Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie, and GoldenEye 007 64. It was one of the first games that really got me into action games, first-person shooting, and just being the ultimate badass. Like seriously, how much cooler can you get than James Bond?
GoldenEye 64 was notably one of the first-person shooters, and it’s has held great significance throughout the years in gaming. I can’t even begin to recall how many times they have brought back the title; it seems as though they are constantly reviving it and attempting to make it better. But the original is such an iconic classic, it just doesn’t need to be brought into the next generation. I like it being old school. I’d say the only way you can bring it into the next generation is if you do a real-life version, which is exactly what YouTube Warialasky decided to do.
As gamers, we’ve all experience vehement frustration in having to
cooperate deal with NPCs (non-playable characters for those not adverse in gaming references.) Sometimes the NPCs are easy to work with, but sometimes they can just be an annoying hassle. It’s like, why must this character even exist? Well the team over at Alasky understands this frustration, and in their real-life GoldenEye 64 video they remind us gamers how much we hated escorting Natalya around. She was just so useless! And then when you did need her to move, she got in front of you in the middle of action and you accidentally killed her (that’s what happens in the video.)
The video isn’t one of those high quality productions that we’ve been seeing on YouTube lately, but it’s still a great video that was spurred from innovative frustration. It’s surely a cool tribute to the classic N64 game GoldenEye 007, so check out the video below & enjoy a few laughs while reminiscing about how much Natalya got on your nerves.
