With so many competent shooters on the market today, one of the best to be released this year was on the non-shooter console. 007 Goldeneye was a flashback to what in all likelihood started the FPS multiplayer dominated world that we as gamers reside in today. The game captured the essence of what made Goldeneye so popular in the first place back on the Nintendo 64 and ended up being a great new take on the James Bond lore, instead of re-hashed and redistributed modern day update to the old classic.
