    "Tell me you agree that Goldeneye is the greatest Nintendo 64 game ever."

    Seconded. If you should happen upon a Nintendo 64 console, I challenge you now to a duel. Pistols in the Temple at ten paces.

    I became a Sony fanboy at some point during the N64's development. And I had been playing Unreal mods on the PC when Goldeneye came out. Console FPS still continues to elude me.

    Agreed on Goldeneye, though Ocarina of Time was probably my favourite game on the N64. I never got around to playing Perfect Dark though, as it finally came out around the time I switched to Sony.

    @Art D,

    Growing up is a bummer, but MGS is a pretty goddamned classy-epic way to finish gaming. That series is a work of art.

    When I first arrived in China I played competitive Mario Kart DS for a club in Baoding. Haven't really found anything here in Beijing. If anyone's interested in forming a Nintendo club, I'm down for it.

    I'm currently knee deep in Mario Kart 7 for 3DS, Super Mario 3D Land, Rhythm Heaven for Wii, and found an original Rhythm Heaven for GBA second hand while on a trip to Tokyo a few months ago.

    If anything Nintendo REALLY wants to do business here and has done more things officilaly here in the console market than any other outside company. There's technically a law banning home consoles but Nintendo got around those with it's iQUE line of machines. The first was a hybrid SNES / N64 inside a controller that plugged into you TV. They also used the iQUE line for DS as well.

    Loads of info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IQue

    Yes mate it was all about Master System II in the UK. Europe was one of their best markets. Did you know there was another secret game in that thing aside from Alex the Kidd?

    You really missed out on Perfect Dark. Really one of my favorite FPS of all time. The team who made that and Goldeneye went on to make the Timesplitters series.

    Strangely, I just couldn't get into any other FPS after that one, perhaps not until the Metroid Prime (Not a real FPS) or Modern Warfare games
